Here is a couple lifts from Svenn's testing over the holidays.
Svenn is a coach, has a history of gymnastics, and served in the Norwegian military. Before starting with me, he had been attending group-classes and following online blogs but found himself plateau'd and always banged up. Svend's goals were to get stronger, feel good while lifting, and was interested in a long-term approach to fitness.
To get Svenn the results he was after and feeling good again, we have reduced his training down to 4 days/ week. He lifts three days a week, and has one day of varied aerobic training. His results have been fantastic in terms of his strength gains, but also the "feel" of his body under heavy weight is what I find the most rewarding as a coach. Check out his comments to see what I mean.
Svenn is a cerebral dude which means he brings an immense amount of attention to detail into his training. He is really strict with himself in terms of movement quality, and always has lots of questions during our consults. He will be opening a gym quite soon, and I can't wait to see the culture he develops there.
Although Svenns comment here is funny, a 50kg pullup is no laughing matter. He weighs about 76kg, so his Pullup Total (Bodyweight + Weight Attached) is over 275#, which is nearing the infamous 300# pullup, which is really impressive for an athlete his size.
