HEAVY IRON, WICKED STRENGTH

“Forged by the iron furnace.”

 

“Ding-a-ling, Ding-a-ling!”

*Those were the sounds that resonated the halls of 305 today! Lookie-loos gazed in amazement at the muscle and might of Lemon City Barbell members Frankie G and Sergio C setting PR after PR after PR!
The unannounced mock power meet for Lemon City proved to be the perfect stage for some serious showing of strength and power.
Here’s the breakdown: After 8 weeks of intensive strength training, the Power Club had an attrition rate of 60%. The two men who remain have earned the following:

Frankie G:
20 Rep Squats – INCREASE from 140LB to 215LB – 54% INC
Max Squat – INCREASE from 240LB – 285LB – 19% INC
Max BP – INCREASE from 205LB TO 220LB – 7% INC
Max DL – 315
Total Tonnage Squatted over 8 weeks – 24,885 LBS
MEET TOTAL – 820 LBS

Sergio C:
20 Rep Squats – INCREASE from 210LB – 275LB – 31% INC
Max Squat – INCREASE from 340LB – 405LB – 19% INC
Max BP – INCREASE from 185LB – 195LB – 5% INC
Max DL – INCREASE from 400LB – 455LB – 14% INC
Total Tonnage Squatted over 8 weeks – 29,385 LBS
MEET TOTAL – 1055 LBS

*Please Note that NO Bench press or Dead lift training was done during the 8 weeks. This is proof positive of the systemic “carry over” effects of HEAVY HIGH REP SQUATTING. Not only will the legs adapt, but the ENTIRE organism must adapt.

CONGRATULATIONS and OUTSTANDING WORK!
