PPM SUCCESS STORIES: PPM CLIENTS GET RESULTS
As a multi-sport athlete, I have utilized all types of training styles to prepare for various competitions. I am a European Powerlifting Champion, a 3-time World Powerlifting Champion, and a 6-time Spanish Powerlifting Champion.
I had to switch my training style when a transitioned to athletic endeavors that did not require lifting heavy poundages, such as triathlons and various extreme sports-- such as climbing the Teide strapped to a 100 kg structure; pulling drag an Airbus A400, the largest aircraft in the Air Force; and sparring in mixed martial arts (MMA) fights.
I thank Francis Benfatto. for introducing me to PPM. It is effective for maintaining my lean-muscle integrity as switch back-and-forth between activities such cycling and swimming, as well as for maintaining my musculature for aesthetic reasons-- for simply looking and feeling good.

PPM SUCCESS STORIES: PPM TRAINEES EXCEL IN SPORTS
I trained in martial arts since I was 7 years old. I earned a black belt in karate, and I am a kick boxing and advanced Thai boxing instructor. I became a pro fighter at 21 and competed until I was 26.
Unfortunately, I was forced to retire when I suffered five herniated discs in my lower back, as well and knee injury that, despite corrective surgery, I continue to struggle with today. Surgeons and doctors warned me that, if I continue to train at a high level, there is a high risk that I could be confined to a wheelchair. However, a super-competitive athlete like myself sometimes refuses to accept being told what he can not do.
Reflecting on how I came to know the legendary Francis Benfatto, I recall that one summer day I went with my friend to a sports shop. I saw a book about "The Austrian Oak," the great Arnold Schwarzenegger, but the cover of a book in the back caught my eye -- it was a photo of Francis. I was fascinated by his phenomenal physique. I was only 15 years old at that time, and I had never seen such a body in my life. Because of that picture, I started to train with weights.
Thanks to my physical genetics and my martial arts background, I had fast results. I competed at -80 kg at age 17 in Teheran, Iran, and won a silver medal. I had a dream of being a pro at martial arts, and I achieved it, until I was sidelined. I did not do bodybuilding-style train until 2006, and because of my injuries, I coupled my training with physical rehabilitation for two years.
In 2008, I decided to compete in bodybuilding. I became the Danish Bodybuilding Champion in 2010. I took got 6th place at Scandinavian Bodybuilding Championships, because, unlike my fellow competitors, my training was limited -- I could not do deadlifts, squats, or barbell rows. I stopped competing in 2013, since I could not prepare for any contests due to pain.
One day, I decided to write to Francis Benfatto and thank him for being my physique role model for so many years. My hero actually answered me back! Wow, I still remember how happy I felt that day in 2018. As I told his business partner Andrew Oye, while we corresponded, I asked Francis if it was possible for me to make a comeback as a competitive bodybuilder despite all of my previous injuries. The answer was yes, if I trained using the PPM method. I started studying the method and receiving train PPM coaching under Francis' wings.
It was dream come true, and the results were phenomenal. With the PPM, I could gain lean muscle mass, while improving my condition and reducing discomfort. My pain, especially from back injuries. was reduced about 30%. Less than a year of PPM training helped me became IFBB Pro Nordic Bodybuilding Championships Overall Winner and a Top 5 finisher at the Scitec World Show. I look forward to my next competition-prep in 2020 and beyond with my hero Francis Benfatto...and the PPM.
