A good video. I will be tuning in for the rest. I especially liked the advise he gave to younger lifters. Sound and solid, just like Blaine seems to be.

Andrew Terry says
You work a 12 hour day and then do a 4 hour workout? Wow, hats off to you, man that is intense. I tried working a 14 hour day job once, only lasted three days, too much for me. Plus the chicken shake, I get it but I would never drink it. Did you come up with that?I can’t imagine having to eat that much protein. Great video, thanks.
Luis Gonzalez says

Neil Cognito says
I don’t know how he can balance a stressful job and being the top ranked SHW powerlifter in the world. And he’s natural??
