A real life GI Joe – Marcus Bondi’s record breaking feats of superhuman strength have been marvelled by over 7 million people on YouTube. Marcus and his team have broken over 4 official world strength records, including the 25 Metre Rope Climb, Muscle-Ups, One-arm Chin Ups and 20 Metre Rope Climb.
Dubbed as one of the most extreme bodyweight strength tests in the world, the rope climb is measured by how long it takes to climb a 15/20/25m rope, within a 20/50/60sec time limit. The competition from around the globe is phenomenally intense; regular attempts at the rope records are staged by various Olympians (gymnasts, wrestlers, judo-players), as well as Elite Special Forces Units and Top Mountain Climbers.
As a trainer and a coach to top athletes and special forces all over the world, “In order to even get close to a World Record, you must be incredibly aware of how your nutrition plan supports your strength goals. In training for all World Records I have a large serve of Perfect Protein two hours prior to training (with skim milk/banana) and then a Protein Revival immediately on completion of training, which is crucial for effective recovery. Years of intense testing and extreme results have proven to me what works best and Protein Revival is the best. I also keep protein bars handy at all times for muscle-food emergencies!”
