STRENGTH IS A PART OF THE PUZZLE It’s a big part. But it’s only a part. What good is being strong if you can’t utilise that strength athletically? What good is being strong if you’re unable to drop unwanted body fat? What good is being strong if you can’t bend over to tie your own shoelace? Here’s Saka Senior (aka the real Saka @nicsakalis 😏) taking 140kg for a ride on the trap bar. He paired this with five push ups for five sets. Except this last set (shown) where I let him max out.
I’m impressed with his progression in the gym. But what I’m more impressed with is the image above. That was him achieving his weekly goal of 50,000 steps. We set this goal for the month of July. As an office worker that frequently travels, that’s not an easy task. Earlier wake ups, later nights and alarms throughout the day (as movement reminders) have all contributed to achieving this goal. The three hours he spends in the gym with me each week is always quality. It’s all the other hours during the week that are going to help his long term goals of health & longevity. 15kg down. Health markers constantly improving. Fitness indicators across the board on the rise. By getting the other pieces of the puzzle in order, Jack is well on the way to a healthier life. What are you doing outside your gym/exercise sessions that is moving you towards where you want to be? #one22
