Client Transformation Series: Jay

June 21, 2013 - Uncategorized -

7  Week Transformation
Age: 36
Height: 5’10”
    Jay is a native of Wales with a competitive background in Rugby.  Having never followed a traditional strength program, Jay made some great progress in his strength development in such a short period of time.  Although he had never been coached before on the squat, deadlift, and press, a lifetime of competitive athletics and weight-room shenanigans helped Jay in building a solid base of strength that merely needed to be expressed through full ranges of motion with proper form.  Like so many other exercise enthusiasts and gym-goers, his stale 5 day bodybuilding split had left him feeling jaded. With year to year improvements in his strength, performance, and physique leaving him unsatisfied, getting stronger reinvigorated his lust for training and set the bar higher for all other future levels of athletic performance.  Not to mention the improvement on his sexy Welsh man-wrapper.  Remember, all things equal, the stronger athlete will be the better athlete.

OH Press 122.5 3×5 (last set)
Just as a heads up, pressing one’s bodyweight overhead with this form is considered a physical feat that less than .1% of gym-goers will ever accomplish.  Jay’s estimated 1RM based on his current 122.5 3×5 is in the neighborhood of 150lbs which is astoundingly close to his body weight
Squat 245×1
Deadlift 315×1
