Ben Pollack is a powerhouse looking to get shredded.
While he may not be a bodybuilding standout, Ben Pollack is an absolute beast within the strength industry. Known for his remarkable strength as a powerlifter, Ben Pollack has built a reputation for being one of the most powerful men on the planet. Holding the all-time record raw total in the 198 pound weight class, it’s clear to anyone with eyes that Ben Pollack is a powerful athlete.
But with all that power, Pollack is still interested in carving out a physique to be proud of. While he’s always been in great shape, getting as shredded as a bodybuilder is an entirely different game compared to powerlifting. As such, Pollack has shifted his focus and is now putting more emphasis on building muscle.
His recent Instagram posts showcase the powerlifter practicing his posing, which begs the question of whether he’s looking to compete in bodybuilding.
I usually have a hard time not focusing on my #flaws, but honestly, I’m really proud of this #sidechest. #glutes coming in, biceps nice and full, and #waistline decently tight. Need a bit more tris and hammies, and I need to push my far shoulder more forward to get those pec striations showing some, but I think this one is close to national level. And getting stronger while improving my physique is fun AF. Huge thanks to @kyle_wurzel for the photo and @davegoodin for the posing help! #neverskiplegday
Despite that, Ben Pollack is still putting a focus on remaining as strong as possible on his journey to get shredded. Watch below as he reps out 660 pound deadlifts for reps.
#soclose ? #hookgrip finally gave out after 23.5 reps with 660 on #sumodeadlift. #notmad since I did this last set #beltless and the weight still moved really well. Besides, my #biceps are actually looking decent for once ??? I should really be using #straps as there’s no reason to limit my #backworkout given my #hypertrophy goals RN, but it’s a fun challenge. Thumbs do hurt like a MFer though #bodybuildingmotivation #ironrebel
