Maximum Functional Mass by Bud Jeffries

If you want to learn how to build insane power, gain muscular body weight, have the endurance of a Wolverine and with the speed and flexibility of a Gymnast than you need to order my friend Bud Jeffries new book.

Bud is an amazing man, he has dropped over 100 pounds off his frame weighing in at a svelte 270# today. He can do full splits, squat in the 1,000’s, one hand press 150+pounds overhead, bend and twist various pieces of steel into odd shapes as if they were butter in his massive hands.

This stellar gent also has the endurance of a man much smaller in stature. Bud is known for his mastery of bodyweight exercises such as Handstand push-ups braced against a wall with weighted vests attached to his body, he has video footage doing an Isometric hold on his thighs in what is known as the Wall sit while supporting well over 800 pounds on his legs.

His endurance feats are jaw dropping, here is an example:


Need I say more?

One of the most important things about Bud and his works are that he actually practices what he preaches. This is rare in today’s strength/fitness world where most pretend to walk the walk but many cannot back up what they are preaching.

Mr. Jeffries covers all the above and more in his new book Maximum Functional Mass. You can order it in ebook or hard copy format.

Where integrity is lacking much in the strength/fitness community why not spend your hard earned money on a product by a man who is the real deal.

I guarantee you will get results with this book if you put the work in and follow it as Bud has outlined.
