Who is Ben Pakulski anyway?
Before posting my full Mi40X review, I’d like to fill you guys in on a little background information about the program’s creator.
Benjamin Pakulski (known affectionately as ‘the Pak Man’) is a successful IFBB professional bodybuilder from Toronto, Canada. He was born in 1981, which at the time I am writing this makes him currently 33. He has already enjoyed success with a previous online exercise program – Mi40 – which is described as ‘an innovative resistance exercise program’.
Ben Pakulski graduated with honors from the University of Western Ontario with a B.Sc. in Kinesiology. On his website, he attributes this background for making his name “synonymous with an intelligent and healthy approach to bodybuilding.” He teaches seminars and coaches aspiring bodybuilders with his education in nutrition and exercise science. Also on his website it states that since November 2012, he has been actively writing a book on bodybuilding.
In competitive bodybuilding he has racked up a number of successes, most recently finishing 2nd in the 2013 Arnold Classic competition after placing 4th the previous year and a 10th place finish in 2011. He finished 11th in his first ever Mr Olympia contest in 2011, which is a great achievement by anybody’s standards. Also, in the IFBB he finished 2nd twice in 2008 and was the winner of the 2008 Mr Canada competition. Quite an impressive roll of honor.
From this information I surmise that Mr Pakulski is a highly educated, intelligent individual with a background in science and nutrition as well as fitness and exercise. He seems a driven and determined goal achiever and testimonials from his students reveal him to be an inspirational coach. He is also a family man, having recently had a baby boy with his long-time girlfriend.
