Alex and I are on to week 3 of our early morning workouts. Alex has gotten crazy strong, he’s went from barely dead lifting 40 pounds to lifting 100 pounds. Without steroids…
This is article that started it all. It provided a very clear metric for strength that can be applied universally.
Strong means the following:
Front Squat 1.5x BW
Dead Lift 2.0x BW
Bench Press 1.5x BW
This is simple measure of strong working nicely for Alex and I. I’ve also come to discovered that I can have kick ass workouts if someone shows up consistently. Alex is like Cal Ripken Jr. in my books, so amazingly consistent. At this rate I’ll be benching 240 lbs in no time.
