Designed to give you INHUMAN strength and endurance
and build RIPPED mass that performs like a MACHINE.


I'm Nick Nilsson...in the strength world, I'm called the "Mad Scientist of Muscle"...

That's me in the pics above and this is me here...


I practice what I preach. I've been doing this professionally for 27+ years and, as a lifetime drug-free bodybuilder and strength coach, I know a LOT about building muscle and strength naturally.


This Isn't About Me, Though...It's About YOU and What My Training Methods Are Going to Do For You...


I've created a unique strength and conditioning system that I call "Metabolic Monsters" and it's going to transform YOU into a lean, strong, muscular, elite-level performance BEAST.


It's a system based on HARD TRAINING, done with strategic, intelligent programming to develop...

  • brute strength
  • explosive power
  • unstoppable conditioning
  • and peak athletic performance all at once.


As well, my "Metabolic Monsters" training system will make you burn massive amounts of bodyfat WITHOUT losing any muscle, strength or power.


This would usually be a tall order...we both know that most conventional programs and methods can't accomplish anything like this.

And just like you...I don't want to lose all my mass and strength when I'm training to lose fat...I want to actually BE as strong as I LOOK...


Before I get into the workouts, there are two BIG problems with "normal" fat loss and conditioning training you need to know about...

It's Not Your Fault If You've Been STUCK For YEARS Using "Normal" Training Methods That DON'T GET THE JOB DONE...


This "normal" training is almost all you ever see in the mainstream fitness world.

And I can totally understand where you're coming from, not knowing what else to do or where to turn. Because I was there for YEARS, myself, too.

Even as a fitness professional, I was never quite happy with the results I got from conventional training. I could lose fat well enough...but I would always lose a TON of muscle and strength and end up weak and depressed.

So I would switch my training to bulking up... and I could gain strength and muscle quite well. And, of course, I would always seem to gain a bunch of extra fat along with it.

I could never seem to quite dial it in where I could be ripped... muscular... AND strong as hell...all at the same time.


So yeah...I feel your pain. Believe me. It frustrated me for more than 25 years.


But I never stopped trying...

"I'm looking for the toughest badasses in America.  Think you've got what it takes? Come out to my ranch and prove it." - Steve Austin


I had applied to be a contestant on a reality competition TV show called the "Broken Skull Challenge" put on by former pro-wrestler Steve Austin. If you've ever seen the show, you know what it's all about...GUTS, POWER and UNRELENTING EFFORT.



I had watched the show from the first episode and LOVED IT. At the end of each show, Steve would say "I'm looking for the toughest badasses in America. Think you've got what it takes? Come out to my ranch and prove it."

You need to be a straight-up WARRIOR to make it through this competition.

And let me just say, the events in this show are awesome. The competition is designed to push you to your limits and test you to see what you're truly made of. Most people would look at the events and say..."that's insane."

Me...I said "That looks like FUN."

So I signed up for it.


Long story short, I ended up on the short list to be on the show...and it started taping in just 6 WEEKS.


You and I both know six weeks is not much time to prepare for something like this. I was big, strong and powerful, on the tail-end of a bulking cycle. I was not lean or in great strength/endurance shape.



I needed to KEEP that strength, muscle and power but get RID of the extra fat all while ramping up my conditioning at the same time.

And I had to do it FAST if I wanted to have a chance to compete and win.

I'm 44 years old...I would be going up against guys HALF my age in this competition. And I wasn't there just to show up...I wanted to DESTROY them.

As if that wasn't enough, the clock was ticking...I knew these 6 weeks were going to FLY by. I needed to make massive improvements FAST or I was dead meat.

That was some SERIOUS motivation to come up with a completely NEW approach to my training.

And what I came up with blew away even my own expectations...


This training is going to TRANSFORM you into a strong, muscular BEAST with a will of IRON that literally SCARES people when you train (not kidding).


And if that puts you off...well, WOW are you in the wrong place.

This is the kind of stuff I'm talking about...

Still With Me? Awesome.


You and me...we're a different breed...it's a brotherhood and a sisterhood of steel.

We LOVE the feeling of heavy iron on our back...cold steel in our hands....the smell of metal and the gut-wrenching effort of HARD WORK.

We love the banging and clanging of plates...the muscle, strength and raw power earned with BLOOD and SWEAT.



We CRAVE the feeling of being able to accomplish ANYTHING we set our minds to, no matter how hard it is or how much it sets us apart and draws stares from everybody else. Because you know what?...

"The lion does not concern itself with the opinions of sheep."

Get ready to become the lion...


I Call My System "METABOLIC MONSTERS" for a Reason...


These workouts are BRUTAL...


Yet they are also carefully-constructed, SMART strength and conditioning circuits that
weave intelligent training principles into the fabric and structure of every workout
you do in order to push you BEYOND what you THOUGHT your limits were.


  • The circuits cover all your major movement patterns while incorporating incredible new core strength exercises that maximize every second of training time you put in.

  • These weight workouts build raw muscle and strength, even as they push your cardiovascular conditioning into overdrive.

  • You'll do strategic "challenge" workouts (such as loaded carries for distance) that will push your mind and body to their limits.

  • You'll do targeted speed and power work to develop incredible athleticism and explosiveness.
  • You build STRENGTH and MASS as you're getting SHREDDED, so that you don't just become a smaller, weaker, slightly leaner version of yourself...you become a ripped, powerful MACHINE.

  • You feel energized, not brutalized, after a training session...you won't feel like you got hit by a truck all the time.

  • Your testosterone levels go through the roof rather than getting flushed down the toilet, as happens with regular muscle-eating, catabolic fat-loss training.

  • You forge a body that can DO things...incredible things that will make ordinary people's jaws drop to the floor.

It's Like CrossFit + SCIENCE


Now, don't get me wrong...I have nothing against CrossFit in general. The cross-training concept and camaraderie you'll find in any "box" is fantastic.

In fact, if you DO CrossFit right now, you're going to absolutely LOVE these workouts because they'll help you perform even BETTER in your WODs.

This is a STRATEGICALLY-DESIGNED system of cardio, strength, conditioning and body composition training will push you to your limits and beyond...EVERY SINGLE TIME.



These Metabolic Monster workouts are built on carefully-crafted, science-based STRATEGY to squeeze every drop of results from every moment you spend training. There's nothing random about these workouts and they will help you perform beyond anything you've ever experienced before.


  • They're extremely time-efficient. In fact, some of the workouts can be done in as little as 10 minutes...and none take more than an hour. Lack of time will NEVER be an excuse to not bust out a workout.


  • They're designed to be done with the normal equipment (and space) found in just about any commercial or home gym. If you've got barbells and dumbbells, you're all set. I've also included a number of "special equipment" workouts for you, in case you do have more varied equipment available to work with (like sledgehammers, sandbags, bands and chains, etc.).


  • They're based on easy-to-learn movements and exercises so that ANYBODY with the desire can jump in right away and start seeing incredible results WITHOUT having to learn highly-technical exercises like Olympic lifts. Just grab the weights and GO.



Now I Want To Show You One Of My Favorite "Metabolic Monster" Workouts in Action So You Can See Exactly What I'm Talking About...


This circuit is the ULTIMATE in training efficiency...a total-body workout with 6 exercises using ONE dumbbell.

You'll go straight from one exercise directly into the next with ZERO rest...which is easy to do because you will NEVER let go of the dumbbell the whole way through.

This circuit takes ZERO setup time and only about 6 square feet of floor space, making it perfect for home gym or CROWDED gym training. I'm using a 105 lb dumbbell for this demo.


Exercise #1 - One Dumbbell "Goblet" Push Press - 4-6 reps
Exercise #2 - Goblet Squats - 4-6 reps
Exercise #3 - Single Vertical Dumbbell Rows 15-20+ reps
Exercise #4 - Single Dumbbell Stiff-Legged Deadlifts - 4-6 reps
Exercise #5 - On-Dumbbell Push-Ups - 15-20+ reps
Exercise #6 - Dumbbell Swings - 6-8 reps

Here's the Beauty of This Circuit...


...beyond just using a single dumbbell to work your entire body in about 6 square feet of floor space in a little over 2 minutes, which is awesome in and of itself.


1. Every exercise is matched with an antagonistic movement "book-end" to keep your body in balance. These are the push-press and the dumbbell swing...the goblet squat and the stiff-leg deadlift...the row and the push-ups. As well, the rep ranges roughly match up in each of these pairings to balance strength levels.


2. The order of these exercises shifts focus alternating upper body and lower body to minimize localized fatigue so your performance stays relatively high the entire way through. This means you can get more reps and do more WORK in each circuit, pushing yourself to your TRUE limits. There is no mercy.


It's simple... it's challenging... and it flat-out WORKS.


If you want to try it, I recommend doing 3-5 rounds of this for a full workout, taking 2-3 minutes rest in between rounds. It's incredibly time-efficient, space-efficient and easily adjustable to whatever your training level is just by adjusting the dumbbell weight.


THIS is The Kind of "Intelligent Design" That Sets "Metabolic Monsters" Apart From Every Other Workout Program You've Done.


Every single workout in the book (and there are 75 of them) is put together with strategy, just like this one. NOTHING is done by accident and EVERYTHING is done with a specific goal in mind.

There are workouts that focus on punching power, explosiveness, lateral movement, strength/endurance, deep core work, lactate (Lactic Acid) tolerance, muscle fiber type training, and much more...

After 6 Weeks of Hammering Out Some of the Toughest and Most Effective Workouts I've Ever Done, I Qualified as an Alternate For the "Broken Skull Challenge" Show.

And THESE are the exact workouts YOU'RE going to get.


I didn't get on the show (and man, I wanted to), but I was VERY close. I beat out literally THOUSANDS of other elite athletes from around the country who also applied to be on the show just to get to that point.

I'm still waiting to get my chance and still training with these workouts right now, ready to jump in and kick ass at a moment's notice...I'm not stopping training for it.

These workouts are some of THE most effective and productive sessions I've ever put together in my 27+ years of training. I'm going to do KEEP doing them...and I'm going to make MORE.

You'll Have TWO FULL MONTHS to Test These Workouts and LOVE Them or Your Money Back...



You deserve RESULTS from your hard training (and I can promise you, this WILL be hard). It's my passion in life to help you GET those results and I stand behind my training programs and exercises 100%. You have my word on this and it's not something I take lightly.

You'll have a FULL TWO MONTHS to test the workouts and see the AMAZING results you get. All I ask is that you give these workouts an honest try. I know you'll love the results you get.



So What Happens If You Don't Use These Workouts?



Nothing at all...

And that should scare the hell out of you.


Because we both know if you keep doing what you're doing, you'll keep getting what you're getting...you WON'T get stronger... you WON'T get leaner... and you WON'T get more conditioned. And that sucks.

Don't stumble through your training like you're blindfolded...not being 100% sure that your workouts are doing EXACTLY what you want them to do...making you bigger, stronger, more powerful and ripped to the bone.



You don't train because you want to stay the same...you train because you want to get BETTER.

And these workouts will make you BETTER...every single time you use them.


Still Got Questions?


I've Got Answers

Just click on the question and the answer will open right below it.


These workouts are GREAT for women. Women train just as hard (if not harder!) than men and can use the exact same training protocols.

And don't worry about looking masculine from these workouts...most women simply DO NOT have the hormonal capability to develop big, thick, manly muscles...it's just not going to happen.

The harder you crank on these workouts, the better you're going to LOOK and the STRONGER you're going to be.

There are definite similarities, however the differences are the KEY...

You will be performing a variety of exercises in a circuit fashion, without any rest in between them. You'll be doing unique, functional exercises and challenges to target a variety of movement patterns and conditioning goals. You WON'T be on the clock, trying to beat a certain time, however. This is training, not competition. Each workout takes as long as it takes to do.

Honestly, it's going to be a battle even just to FINISH some of these workouts at all, much less try and think about doing them as fast as you can!

If you're a CrossFit athlete, you are going to LOVE these workouts...they'll help you perform your WODs faster and prepare you for the competitive aspects of CrossFit.


Your muscles don't know how old they are, however they DO know how effective your workouts are at burning fat and stimulating growth and strength.

While recovery is a consideration as you get older, as long as you listen to your body, you can do ANY of these workouts without any problems.

The primary things you need to be aware of are any physical limitations you have in terms of past injuries or health issues, just like anybody else of ANY age.

I'll tell you straight up...these workouts were NOT designed with beginners in mind. These are intermediate to advanced-level workouts. That being said, some of them CAN be used safely by beginners by adjusting resistance levels appropriately.

Overall, though, there are a number of workouts (and exercises) that I would definitely NOT recommend beginners perform. It takes time to develop the underlying physiological structures (i.e. connective tissue, core strength, nervous system efficiency) necessary to perform these workouts without injury.

Not at all!

The focus of these workouts is on free weight exercises and workouts...most can be done with just barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, a power rack, and a bench. No machines needed...unless you count your car as an exercise machine...

My goal is give you as many practical and effective options as possible to help you get the most out of your training.

And while I did include a few workouts that require special equipment, the VAST majority just use common pieces of equipment found in any gym.

Can I do these exercises at home with very little or very basic equipment?

You can very easily substitute them DIRECTLY into your regular training, whenever you feel like it. You can even use a few of these circuits as "finishers," to be done after your regular workout to boost fat-loss and conditioning.

I've also included a very effective training and eating schedule that you can follow to use these workouts as a program, 2 days on, 1 day off.


Weight training is actually VERY effective for developing cardio capacity. The key is that it has to be done in a very specific way, i.e. circuits or training with short rest periods.

That's exactly what we're doing in these workouts.

In addition, you'll get workouts that specifically develop long-duration aeorobic capacity WHILE improving your strength and endurance.

For example, that picture below is me finishing up a long-distance loaded carry walk...2 miles with a 140 lb sandbag on my back.

This kind of training develops INCREDIBLE mental toughness in addition to amazing cardio/aerobic capacity.

It also teaches you how to breathe, relax and PERFORM while under load for long periods of time...which is a skill that will turn you into a WORKHORSE in every aspect of your physical life.

That's me in most of the pictures on this page. I will never ask you to do something I haven't fully tested on myself first...this is my idea of fun..

And yeah, it is true...I am a bit "mad." In addition to this controlled insanity, I take a very scientific approach to solving "training problems", creating new movements, techniques, workouts and programs to fix what's not working for you.

I have a degree in Physical Education (covering advanced biomechanics, physiology, anatomy and kinesiology) and plenty of natural-born creativity and crazy to work with.

One of my great passions in life is helping people just like you get more out of their training...and that's exactly why I want to help YOU put these workouts into practice in your own training!


The Bottom Line Is This...

You want to get RIPPED and CONDITIONED without losing your muscle mass or strength. "Normal" training isn't getting the job done because it quite simply CAN'T.


The 75 workouts you're going to get in " Metabolic Monsters" WILL get you...
