Bryn hits 190 for 5 reps. The young man is an aspiring bodybuilder and he has discovered the correlation between getting strong and growing. I must say it took me a while to convince him but he’s underway and starting to post some great numbers. I suspect he is more inspired by guys like Johnnie Jackson and Ronnie Coleman. These guys do a few deadlifts.
As I reminded him tonight- 5 reps is a good balance between size and strength.
