I did the 5-3-1 workout before I started seeing my kidney function take a dive, and I saw VERY quick results in both strength and fat loss and size.  I worked my hind end off.  It's possible without steroids, but to me, quick was like 18 months.

 

 

5-3-1? I am going to guess that you didn't do that every day, and took at least one day off for recovery after every session. Am I right?

Every other day workouts and a de-load week to recover then I started over again.

I think you are reading waaaay to much into the protein shake thing.  Just because he drinks a lot of them - doesn't mean he's attributing any special powers of recovery or extra strength gained to them.  His only goal is to maintain a 2 to 1 carb to protein ratio - so maybe that's why all the drinks?  Else, maybe I missed an interview?   

Also, what you consider to be "serious" strength training doesn't necessarily coincide with what Bryson is doing.  Though he certainly seems serious about increasing his strength.  Does that alone make it "serious strength training"?  

From what I've been able to find - it's predominantly core workouts.  "His gym inspiration is to stave off a nagging back injury. That injury — which DeChambeau says stems from a childhood trampoline accident plus the wear of hitting nearly infinite range balls — left him in major pain last season."

I know he says he doesn't bench, or do squats … so "not serious"?  The explanation online is:  "He’s been focusing on exercises that get him into “extreme positions of rotations and flexions” at which point he adds weight to build mental and physical tolerance in those positions".  There's quite a bit of info online about the Muscle Activation Technique and the isolation exercises.  

Nothing he's accomplished so far is not easily explained by hard work and determination (and youth).

I think that thick neck makes his head look  bigger 

He showed some roid rage to a couple of officials at the Memorial.

A bigger head will help build those neck muscles.  8o)
