This young man came to me with a goal in mind - squat 100kg!
His biggest issue wasn't that he wasnt lifting "heavy" enough, it was the fact his body wasn't flexible, stable or balanced enough to not just lift this goal weight, but to be in a position where he could continue to do so without niggles or injury further down the line.
So for 6 months we developed him in these three key areas, slowly building his squat but making sure FORM came before INTENSITY. 👌🏾 Today he's easily squatting his 100kg 🏆 (PB 120kg for 3 @ 78kg b/w) but now I've added some horrid tempo - 5sec down/5sec pause (not touching the rack)/drive up/then try not to faint 😆. Then straight into a push press, followed by box jumps.
The first two exercises/protocols are great for developing jumping ability. Just remember when training to try to not jeopardise form too much just to 'fluff' up your ego. 💪🏽😏 Squats, men who lift, weightlifting, pushpress, boxjumps, motivational fitness, train insane, gym life, fit fam, personal trainer, fitness first, fitness goals, fitness motivation, gym, fitness, training,
