Hard work pays off
This was an email I received from an online client this week, we worked together for 6 weeks of training. It goes to show what hard work and a positive mindset can do.
“That feel when you bench 2 biscuits and deadlift 3 for the first time ever.
I could go on about how grateful I am to you for the past 6 weeks but I think the results speak for themselves. I made sure all my ducks were in a row this week, being good and eating my vegetables. I got all the sleep I needed and set myself up for success.
The attempts went like this
(every attempt was a success)
Squat : 245 , 255, 270
Bench: 190,205, 225
Dead: 295, 315, 325
I have no doubt that I could have squatted 275 but I heeded your advice about not over doing it on the first lift.
Since the first time I tested (week of dec 17) these are the increases we have seen:
Squat: 245-270 total increase of 25lbs
Bench: 195-225 total increase of 30 lbs
Dead: 295-325 total increase of 30lbs
for reference I weighed in after todays session at 162lbs”- Andrew
I can’t say I deserve any credit for the huge increases, he took each workout very seriously and knew a positive mindset is half the battle. He had huge potential and I look forward to working with him again, videos of his progress to come soon!
