The amount of muscle Bryan has gained, in such a short period of time is nothing short of staggering. When you take into account that he did it while simultaneously losing a huge amount of body fat AND becoming stronger than ever, it becomes almost unbelievable! At 43 years of age, he is the living embodiment of the rejuvenating benefits of strength, I think you will all agree that he looks much younger!
Lets talk about strength for a moment, when Bryan came in, his max on the Military press was 45kg, at the end of the Amazing 12, he was pressing 60kg for sets of THREE! 15kg (33%) over his old max, for multiple sets of multiple reps, in just 12 weeks. We are testing his new max next week and, from how easy that 60kg looked, I’m predicting close to 70kg as his new max, a potential 55% increase in 3 months of training.
Not bad right?
Lets here what the man himself has to say:
Since turning 30 (13 years ago), I had gradually gained a kilo of flab per year. I had never been on a diet or enrolled in any fitness program, so when I met Ben, I explained my goal was to simply lose weight and maintain strength. The first task was a strength test, followed by a “before photo” – it was a sobering experience. Head down, 12 weeks later, I have dropped at least 2 stone of flab, 5 inches off my waist, can run 5 by 7 minute miles and am a lot stronger.
An absolutely incredible transformation from a man who deserves every part of it
