Welcome! My Name Is Wasim Kagzi! I’m The Founder of MuscleLead.
Since high school I’ve fully immersed myself in the world of fitness, strength training and bodybuilding. As I learn more from people within the industry, I’ve slowly moved towards powerlifting and using strength to heal. I started this website to write about my learned tips and allow experts from the industry to share their knowledge. I hope to help you get informed and learn to lift properly for life! Connect with me on Linkedin.
The goal of this website is to inform everyone and anyone about the world of strength training. I hope to provide helpful content on powerlifting, strength training, CrossFit, and improving wellness. Our team is made up of powerlifting coaches, nutrition experts, and experts from their field. If you have a specific question please contact us and we’ll either answer you directly or write an article addressing it.
My strength training journey started as a kid when my Dad asked me to do a push up. I continued my lifting progress in high school when my brother and I created a make shift barbell with a hockey stick and bricks. Since those fateful days, I’ve continued learning and understanding the crazy world of fitness.
As a lifter, I’ve been obsessed with technique, form and perfecting the exercise. I love consuming ALL information as it relates to strength training and fitness. Going through sports science research during my free time is my true hobby. I hope to eventually become a coach and share my knowledge with readers.
I’ve graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry at the University of Toronto. I worked in a Medical and Physiotherapy clinic for 5 years where we focused on healing through exercise. I saw countless patients with ailments related to the musculoskeletal system. The team of physiotherapists, athletic therapists and trainers focused on sport rehabilitation. Through MuscleLead.com we hope to share with you everything we’ve learned about Powerlifting, strength training and sports specific training.
The team of MuscleLead writers include powerlifters, nutrition coaches and strongmen. Together, the team has decades of experience with clients of all backgrounds and fitness levels. We bring a wide range of strength training knowledge and incorporate the information into all of our articles. If you would like to join our team, please contact us.
