Huge Press for High School Freshman
A month back Jake landed his first 275 lb bench press. However, this is something that a lot of people have to see to believe.
It even boggles my mind. To go along with yesterday’s training mistake admission, I’ll share something else. I couldn’t bench this when I was a senior in high school.
I worked out a lot in high school, but I struggled to bench anything over 245. Why? I didn’t have an effective training program! Fortunately, I’ve put Jake on Bull Strength for about a year.
He was actually the first person, other than myself, to try the complete program.
Check out these cool results. Why “cool?” After years of fruitless training programs myself, It still amazes me how fast adaptions can take place when done correctly!
Jake – 13 Yr Old Bench Press 225 – February
Jake – 14 Yr Old bench Press 275 – August
Jake actually put up this a few months back, but “no video, no proof” they say on the internet, haha.
After this set he hit a drop set of 185 for 16 reps. That is 20 lbs MORE than his 1 RM max was when he started Bull Strength a year ago!
But I can’t take all the credit. Here is the NEVER FAIL WAY TO GAIN STRENGTH.
1. An effective program – Bull Strength for Jake.
2. Work hard and don’t miss training sessions.
For years in high school I just had #2. I can provide the program, but that hard work has to come from inside!
Also, if you wonder why Jake is benching 275 and some of my other 8th graders are still doing pushups, here it is – Youth and Strength Training.
