Johnny tested tonight fresh from fat camp.
He benched first..warmed up with a few reps at 60kg. Then a couple of sets of 5 at 100kg. Then a single at 140kg and 160kg and then 170kg. His technique is better than but still a mess. His bench has a long way to go but he’ll have the biggest bench in Irish Rugby by this time next year if not before for whatever that is worth.
170kg…and about bloody time too.
He did 7 pull ups. This is his 3rd test since he has been training with me and he has gone from 2 to 4 to 7 this evening…he missed 8 by what would have been the wobble of one of the many chins he had before fat camp.
Then got 59 push ups in 60 seconds and 28 inverted rows in 60 seconds.
Which like I said previously….is pretty much what I’m looking for. 1.5 times body weight on the bench, 8 pull ups for the over 100kg class and I want 45-50 push ups and 25-30 inverted rows. I also want a double body weight trap bar deadlift…he gave me a bucket load more than that as you can see below.
310kg looking reaaaaallllllly easy.
The new lads are making steady improvement as well. I’m looking forward to them testing again at the end of their 6 weeks because I think almost all of them will improve at least 50% if not more.
Who doesn’t love floor pressing.
