Stan Efferding – The Vertical Diet

Episode 223

Today’s guest is Stan “The White Rhino” Efferding, creator of The Kooler and The Vertical Diet. Stan is a legend in the space who is known for being the strongest bodybuilder alive, coaching the strongest people in the world (literally), and for creating the somewhat controversial, yet undeniably effective, “Vertical Diet” – which is exactly what we dive into today.
