My name is Elliott Hulse. I am the king of making men strong.
I am a strongman, strength coach, husband, father of four and father-figure to millions of men worldwide. I have over 2,000,000 YouTube subscribers, most of them men. Men listen to what I have to say and follow my advice, because it works.
I teach men how to be strong. I am an “og” fitness YouTuber who popularized deadlifting, strongman training, warehouse gyms, bioenergetics, reading books, active meditation, philosophy, “hybrid muscles”, “becoming the strongest version of yourself”, “breathe into your balls” and how to “build a nonjob” to a generation of young men.
I made my first YouTube video in 2007, and it was my mission to “inspire 1,000,000 men to grow stronger.” In the spring of 2014 I reached 1,000,000 subscribers on my channel. Six months later, I quit. Mission accomplished (or so I thought).
Over the next five years my life went downhill. I tore both biceps, had hernia surgery, injured my neck in an accident, and I tore my Achilles tendon in 2016 — which kept me down for a long time.
I lost everything: I lost strength, I lost muscle, I lost money, I lost fame, I lost friends, some people say I’ve lost my mind. In a way they are right, I am a changed man. I was wounded. I was defeated. I was deformed. I was down.
If you’ve ever been down also you’ll agree… there is something powerful about being down. Being down teaches you things. It wakes you up. It opens your eyes to things you couldn’t see before.
Now that my eyes are open I see plenty of things I was wrong about. But most of all, I was wrong about what it means to be a strong man.
Men today are weak, defeated and down...
Just like I was only a few years ago. Today when I host my “men’s only strength camps” I see young men doing the same things I did, making the same mistakes I made.
I see the young men making mistakes with: women, sex, alcohol, jobs, careers, money, debt, school, media, politics, parents, siblings, wives, children, God, religion, tattoos and food. It’s painful to see, but I understand. I have compassion for these men, because I was just like them.
