What is the Mathias Method Strength Team?

STRENGTH WARRIORS are a group of individuals who all have a similar goal in mind of getting stronger. This includes physically stronger through training as well as mentally stronger by encouraging, motivating and helping others around themselves become more focused, self-disciplined and dedicated to bettering themselves every day.

We are a group of individuals who can help each other progress towards any goal, as we are open to all forms of training; including powerlifting, bodybuilding, Olympic Lifting, Crossfit, sports training, strongman, general fitness or any other training style, that has strength at its core. We believe in strength as a way to progress, because strength can help you reach any goal faster.

Each Warrior has unique goals and training styles that add to the team’s value. We may have different reasons for training, but we all share the same purpose of building our STRENGTH together; while we travel along our Strength Journeys!

What does it mean to be a STRENGTH WARRIOR?

We are all strong as individuals but together we can grow stronger! To be a STRENGTH WARRIOR means to continually seek to become better. It means you are willing to strive for more out of life, whether it be through strength training, goal seeking, character building or any other avenue you choose to take. You are courageous and do not limit yourself to your fears. You look to strengthen yourself as an individual and in turn, will make the world around you stronger!

Not only do we believe in making ourselves stronger, but we must also help those around us. Individually our growth is limited, but together we can go so much farther along our STRENGTH JOURNEY! We are STRENGTH WARRIORS!

Hi, I am Ryan Mathias, the Author of numerous Strength, Health and Fitness Books, and creator of the Legendary Mathias Method Strength System.

I am a competitive powerlifter with over 15 years of training experience, all backed by a Degree in Exercise Science from California State University-Sacramento (CSUS), and I am a 3rd Degree Black Belt with numerous martial art Grand Champion and World Championship Titles (2007-2010, 2013-2014, 2016).

Much of my training, such as what you will read in the following, was developed not only to make me stronger, but also improve my athletic performance and keep my body healthy for my martial arts.

Needless to say, I am obsessed with STRENGTH!

I have always loved learning about and teaching people how to get stronger by lifting properly. I am always learning new things and improving my knowledge, and all that I learn I share with others because no matter how strong I get, we are all stronger together.

That is why I developed the Mathias Method Strength System; to give you the tools not only to help yourself, but all those around you to reach your goals.

I have been helping people for years learn how to get really strong, fit and healthy through my work, and I want to help you too! I want you to be a champion at life, and I want to be the one that helps get you there!

I hope you will choose to pursue your Strength Journey and let me lead you along the way!

Form Corrector and General Nuisance 




He believes that passion is the best teacher, and has shown that through his own fitness journey. He started in early 2015 at around 225-230 lbs without a working knowledge of what he was doing, and without clear goals in mind other than the ever-popular “lose weight”. After several months of implementing the advice and knowledge of the general public, he found that he was dissatisfied with his results or lack thereof. It was May of that same year when he decided to really learn how to approach fitness in, not necessarily the right way, but a better way. At this time he was weighing in at 190-195 lbs and had a 700-800 lb powerlifting total with poor form. He dove headfirst into the pursuit of everything diet and fitness related, reading over 200 studies, a dozen books, and started over from scratch to learn proper weightlifting form. After another six months of hard studying, and harder lifting, he arrived at a bodyweight of 165 lbs and an improved total of 900 lbs. He has continued his education into this subject that he is most passionate about, and is devoted to contributing what he knows to those who are trying to get stronger.

Strength Goals: 

1500 lb. Total in the 198-205 lb. weight class

Best Lifts (In the 198 lb. weight class):

435 lbs. Squat          285 lbs. Bench Press          463 lbs. Deadlift

Bodyweight+70lbs chinup

Reid England

strength warrior reid england


Reid is a former United States Marine with an incredible drive to always improve. He is a natural athlete who loves doing backflips off rocks into the Yuba River near where he lives. He can also do a standing backflip; a talent he has kept since his gymnastic days as a teen. Reid is a very hard worker, who generally comes in after working very long, hard days outside in all types of weather conditions. He is also one of the calmest and cool guys around who just wants to get stronger. He is a phenomenal addition to the team and known as the most handsome man on the team (as he holds the record for most LIKES on the Mathias Method Instagram Page and greatest average number of LIKES)! We think it’s because he looks just like Thor, the God Of Thunder!

Best Lifts:

Squat 452 lbs.              Bench Press 330 lbs.              Deadlift 485 lbs.
