At 6'1", 195 lbs., and lifetime natural, Musclemania® California Champion Brandon Flihan says, "I usually train extremely slow and controlled. Lighter weight. Especially while training for competitions or shoots. But now that I’m not planning on doing anything relatively soon I’ve switched my training to some more heavy compound movements and then add a little bit of accessory work toward the end just to keep the volume somewhat high and to help keep the body fat low."
