Werner Günther Training Videos

Written by

Werner Gunthar's was a world class shotputter in the 1990's. Born with the muscle phenotyping found most often in middle distance runners, Werner Gunther was able, through training, to become a world class shotputter.  

Werner Gunthar to develop the world class power needed to compete at the highest levels he had to traini at the highest levels. By constantly training at higher movement velocities Werner Gunthar wasn't able to change his muscle phenotype break down, but he was able to have his IIa fiber have more IIb qualities, and also selectively hypertrophy all his type two fibers with minimal to no growth of his type I fibers. Although not born with the greatest hand, training allowed him to accomplish incredible things. 

What we're given at birth, doesn't have to be what defines us. To be fast, jump often, sprint often, throw things often, move loads at high velocities, and do everything with a ridiculous level of intent!!!!

(Over the past month i've been diving into Henkkraaijenhof's work. In two seperate presentations he's mention Swiss Shotputter Werner Gunther's training videos. They're pretty awesome to watch! Enjoy!)These videos are a collection of his training.

  • Why smart people believe dumb things (and how that relates to your vertical)

    I recently read a great article about why smart people believe dumb things. This article brought up some excellent points on why there are so many “experts” in the nutrition and fitness fields. You know those people I am talking about - the ones who only eat Keto because you burn more calories or the ones who are doing plant based because of some documentary or those who don’t eat carbs because a study showed you could be leaner and faster without them or the ones who do Peloton cycling and have never been leaner in their lives. And these people tend to be the ones who have a very large voice in the fitness/nutrition community and for some reason we like to believe them.
