Michael De La Pava

Michael “MDLP” De La Pava is currently a competitive Strongman and owner of The Battle Axe Gym. Born in Miami, Florida into a Colombian household, Michael finished his schooling by attending Penn State University where he graduated with a Degree in Psychology. Having his roots in martial arts, he would go on to compete in various sports as a Muay Thai fighter, Powerlifter, and rugby player before committing himself fully to Strongman. During this time, he opened Miami’s first Strongman gym, The Battle Axe, where he currently coaches athletes from various disciplines including powerlifting, MMA fighters, Strongman, officers of multiple authorities and enlisted and active military operators. 

Life after a competition is also very important and there is something to be said about the culture and community of The Battle Axe Gym. Discipline, hard work, courage and character both in and outside of the gym is a major focus for Michael as a coach and continuously puts him on the path to learn new ways to optimize performance ranging from biomechanics to proper optimization of food intake.

We use Red Meat. It is loaded with highly bioavailable heme Iron, Zinc, Selenium and B-Vitamins, particularly rich in Vitamin B12.

We use Grass Fed Beef. It is higher in CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) and provides a healthy Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acid ratio of 3:1.

Grass Fed Bison has all the benefits of red meat while also being free from antibiotics and growth hormones. It is used in our premium monster mash.

We use Low-Gas vegetables for ease of digestion as defined by FODMAP.

We always use hormone free chicken specially prepared in our moisture control ovens so it’s perfectly juicy every time.

We use line caught salmon. It is loaded with Omega 3’s, Vitamin D, B-Vitamins, Selenium, Phosphorous, Choline, Iodine, Biotin and Potassium.

We do not use processed vegetable oils in our meals or in the preparation of the meals. We utilize beef tallow instead in our preparation.

We do not use Soy. Soybeans are high in Lectins which can cause indigestion, bloating and gas.  They are also high in Isoflavonoids, a type of polyphenolic antinutrient that may act as a phytoestrogen causing hormonal changes such as elevated estrogen.
