On this page you’ll find all of our Lean Hybrid Muscle programs and products.
The very first program that you should follow is our best selling Lean Hybrid Muscle RELOADED program. Everything else that we’ve created builds upon the foundation that you has been developed upon completion of this program.
Lean Hybrid Muscle RELOADED was created to help people in both building muscle and burning fat in the same training cycle. The days of bulking up for several months just to wind up a bigger, softer, fatter version of you are long gone.
Likewise, so is the follow up technique often called “cutting” where you attempt to shed the unwanted body fat for what seems like months on end just to wind up skinnier and weaker than when you started out.
Lean Hybrid Muscle RELOADED focuses on training that shifts your muscle fiber type into a type III muscle fiber that uses more fat for energy. When you combine this with our Hybrid Diet that involves rotating macro-nutrients you can amplify your fat burning effects.
The really cool thing about these “Type III” biologically superior muscle fibers is the fact that they are bigger, stronger and more resistant to fatigue.
In a nutshell the program is ideal for anyone who wants to build dense ripped muscle but also has some body fat to lose.
Although the program focuses on the way you look, Elliott and I are both strength coaches who put a huge emphasis on performance. Therefore, upon completing the Maintenance Phase, Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the program you will be conditioned and your body will be primed for follow up phases and plug-in products that are listed on this page.
Again please do not jump ahead. Begin with Lean Hybrid Muscle RELOADED and graduate that program. Once you complete that program you will have earned your right of passage allowing you to advance to some of our other “Hybrid Training Products”.
Lean Hybrid Muscle RELOADED
Who Else Wants to Burn Fat & Build Muscle At The Same Time?
Just like the name says, this is a hybrid program designed by strength coaches Elliott Hulse, CSCS and Mike Westerdal, CPT that will literally force your muscles to get leaner and harder by combining heavy weight training, resistance cardio, circuits and intense intervals.
The main benefit to combining this Type 2 Muscle Training with Type 1 Muscle Training is that your body responds by transforming your muscles into Type 3 “Hybrid” Muscle Fibers.
The amazing thing about this Type III muscle fiber is that it has the capacity to grow larger and leaner… WHILE simultaneously burning fat!
Sounds intense doesn’t it? Well you can experience the results associated with this type of training when you pick up a copy of Lean Hybrid Muscle RELOADED.
14-Day Hybrid Muscle Mass
Expect To Gain 5-6 LBS of Muscle in a 2-Week Period
After you complete Lean Hybrid Muscle RELOADED this is the phase 3 program that you can use if you want to add more muscle mass. It was designed for the “ectomorph” or hard gainer that struggles to put on quality muscle.
The challenge is how to get muscle mass & strength growing in an explosive way quickly and, with a minimal accumulation of body fat. Can it be done? Yes, with a bold approach.
Put aside your ideas of conventional eating and training and dare to go with me on a bold journey to startling increases in both muscle mass and strength with very little fat accumulation.
Use this as your phase 3 program if you want to add MORE muscle.
Aggressive Strength Complexes
Maximal Strength + Plyometric Power = Aggressive Strength
This “Aggressive Strength” not only produces enough force to move heavy objects but it can also execute with speed.
Basically, we combine heavy weight training with explosive plyometrics within the same workouts… in fact this system of training calls for the execution of a “power move” immediately after your heavy lift.
You can use these complexes as a stand alone program or you can use them as a PLUG-IN. Simply add these complexes in addition to the heavy compound movements you are already doing with Lean Hybrid Muscle RELOADED.
This kit includes 10 bad ass, gym based Aggressive Strength Complexes + 3 Bonus Hard Core Complexes which include strongman equipment and odd objects (for my warehouse gym rats). When you plug these complexes into your current workouts you will EXPLODE your muscle, strength and power potential beyond belief!
Lean Hybrid Muscle PORTABLE

Next time you are on the road and trying to figure out how you’re going to “make up” your workout you don’t have to miss a beat. Simply pick up your handy copy of Lean Hybrid Muscle Portable and select a random workoutto follow for the day.

Hard-Core Hybrid Strongman
This Is The Origin of T3M Training!
Deep within the roots of “Orthodox” Hybrid Strength Training you will find a wild, primal and HARDCORE existence.
The contemporary expression of Hybrid Training evolved from the dark, dirty and aggressive lineage of odd object and Strongman Warrior Based workouts. Strongman is the root of Hybrid Training.
This kit includes a 4-Week Strongman Training Template for Sports & Fitness applications. Or you can use these workouts with LHM Reloaded by choosing one of these full body max-effort conditioning workouts and performing it once per week.
You’ll also get instant access to 3 High Definition professionally produced “how-to” videos plus the exact 6 Week Strongman Show Prep routine that Elliott Hulse used to become a Professional Strongman Competitor!

Advanced Intensity Techniques
39 Of Our Most Advanced Intensity Techniques
Chandler has been using our hybrid training methods with the athletes he trains at his gym Elite Strength and Conditioning of Tampa. We were absolutely pumped when Chandler told us he had some ideas to make Lean Hybrid Muscle training or any workout program even more brutal! Check this out..
Let’s face it, in the dog eat dog world we live in today, it has become more and more important for us to reach deep down and conjure up the same degree of intensity that our primitive ancestors used to fight for their survival.
I realize that none of you have saber tooth tigers barreling down on your ass on a daily basis, but the fact remains, if you want to make it in this world…I mean truly get what you want…you gotta grab your balls, look in the mirror, and tell yourself that no matter how hard it is, you aren’t gonna stop until it’s yours!
You gotta have INTENSITY!
Don’t Do Cardio Do This Instead
It’s the perfect plugin for whatever program you are currently doing.
Just dump the cardio you’re doing and replace it with Hybrid Finishers which are mini-workout resistance cardio circuits that get your heart pumping, body sweating and helps your burn fat without burning up any of your hard earned muscle.
Making Monster Muscle Synonymous With Strength
Stereotypically many bodybuilders are known for ripped physiques but are relatively weak in comparison to powerlifters that compete in the squat, bench press and deadlift. Likewise a lot of powerlifters tend to look “out of shape” when compared to their bodybuilding counterparts.
Powerbuilding training on the other hand makes bodybuilding synonymous with strength. With this workout philosophy you’ll mesh hypertrophy training and strength training by using heavy compound movements and insane workout intensity.
Hybrid Barbell Power Complexes
Grow Stronger By Improving Power & Conditioning
When it comes to building max strength there are two very common obstacles that stop a lot of guys dead in their tracks.
One is ignoring speed or power training. This will make your lifting explosive and help you fire through sticking points in your max effort work. The other is lack of conditioning which quite frankly keeps you from putting in the necessary work it takes to get stronger.
Both of these obstacles can be hurdled with our latest creation, Hybrid Barbell Power Complexes. Cool side effects of this type of “add-on” training includes greater work capacity and fat loss.
