@strength_shed making athlete's out of his clients, using the @exertion_fitness sled. These days, training in a commercial gym is so overrated. Outdoor training and or small studio/garage gyms are the way to go. This allows your training to be more customized, giving you a far better chance of achieving your goals & decreasing injury risk💪
Last week marked the 2nd week in a row I got SBD in😍😂 Bench 3x7 at 35 kg felt light as (1 extra rep/set) Deadlifts 3x8 at 75kg. 2 extra reps per set, 10kg less but beltless. Definitely feeling better tech wise vs previous week😁 Paying close attention to my warm-up work primarily focusing on core strength and glute strength as they are both weak areas of mine that have let me down over the years.
W2D1 squats 3x7 50kg. No sleeves and a stiff AF ankle managed to get an extra rep per set VS last week so happy with any progress. Followed by hamstring curls and split squats. I have added in a 2nd lower body assistance work day where I do a few unilateral exercises because these squats felt a bit off may have been my ankle really putting me off but really just keen to iron out any imbalances
Squats this week 3x6 at 50kg. Weight feeling quite light on my shoulders and feeling relatively strong. Heaviest on my back since tearing my ankle ligament so happy days. Followed by Bulgarian squats and glute thrusters.
When your client does her first competition and lifts numbers in all 3 lifts she has never touched before 😍 Squat 87.5kg Bench 50kg Deadlift 100kg Pb total (based on training PBs): 15kg at 57kg El works part time. Is a mum to 2 kids and fits in her training no matter what. Our 2 goals which should be everyone's goals were: to remain injury free and maintain positioning under heavier weights. Now onto some hypertrophy training😍💪💪💪 super proud of this girl!
My amazing client El hitting an easy PB squat of 82.5kg at 57kg body weight. From not being able to squat with no weight at the start of the year due to some serious hip pain....we have let that rest and focused on technique and consistency with reps (running hypertrophy cycles) and boom the heaviest squat she has ever performed with what looks like more in the tank. She works...is a mum of 2....and follows her program diligently in conjunction with perfect nutrition and mobility. Super happy El, comp in 11 days😍😍 El has proved that by executing good technique and accumulating volume through a few hypertrophy cycles prior to more strength focused cycles....strength increases whilst form is maintained.
Thanks very much to our spotters😁 Also thanks to squad gym, an amazing gym thats super clean with the best equipment!
