He’s been quietly climbing the leaderboard for the last several years and finished the 2018 CrossFit Open in second, behind Mat Fraser. He’s been to the Games more than once with beyond impressive finishes. When it comes to competition, Alex Vigneault doesn’t shy away from hard work, obvious from the hours he puts in at the gym and all his programming he shares on Instagram. He knows a thing or two about building insane strength, so if you want to add some serious muscle to your frame, try these Romanian deadlifts he recently did.

Prepare to have trouble walking the next day. You’ve been warned.
