While John now boasts a successful career as an IFBB Pro bodybuilder and fitness company owner, his journey towards the top was extremely difficult. Growing up, John never met his father, and his mother died at an extremely young age. This meant John only had his grandmother to take care of him. When his grandmother tragically passed away in 1999, John was left alone without his family to support him. As the years went by, John continued to face new adversities in his life. During his early days in bodybuilding, John suffered from a rare colon disease. After fighting the disease for several months, his colon burst – almost resulting in his death. Luckily, John was quickly rushed to an emergency room where his life was saved. After several months of recovery, John was finally back on his feet. Coming back into bodybuilding, John used the very obstacles that almost cost him his life as ‘fuel’ to grow stronger. Ever since he recovered from the colon surgery, John has gone on to become a successful bodybuilder, entrepreneur, and inspiration for many people all over the world.

    John needs his own podcast man!
    I’ve heard Mr Meadows on other podcasts and they’re some of the most interesting I’ve listened to.
    Dude has so much knowledge and wisdom to offer the world, and is a great communicator too.

    Loved the video John. Question though what if you do full body on the days you workout? Surely this number has to be adjusted downward? I do mostly 3 hard sets per body part sometimes 4 and close to failure. I am plenty gassed by the time I leave. Cant imagine doubling that number???

    This is what I have been waiting for!

    Can you answer my question(?):

    How do you count SETS per muscle group? For example: 3 sets of back squats, how much of that is glutes ? Or lunges ? Is it quads or glutes ? Thank you!

  4. Ben Jake says:

    Great discussion. Definitely difficult to achieve muscular failure in a single muscle during a compound movement.

    Prob my anatomy but my glutes have always responded the most to squats(high bar), much more than my quads, with little hamstring growth in my experience.

  5. Bob Jenkins says:

    I don’t like the argument for very high volume, that the human body is an incredible tool capable of adapting to great workloads.
    It’s kinda true, but the argument for what we can adapt to and the argument for what is best are two different things, and sometimes that’s not recognized.
