A 15-Year-Old Making Progress in the Gym

For several weeks now, 15-year-old Joseph has been working hard on hanging-band squats and assisted chin-ups. Friday night he was able to see what effect that type of training has had.

After working up to 45 pounds a side on hanging-band squats, he was ready for conventional squats with the “big plates”. No problem! Now, we’ll stay there for a while and “own” that weight, working on range and form.

Doing just a single chin-up seemed almost impossible at one time for Joseph, but that’s no longer the case. He can do one and his numbers will just “go up” from there!

Take-Home Message: Work hard, consistently, and you’ll achieve your goals in the gym.
