Gus continues to steadily improve. Just like the younger folks, being consistent pays huge dividends over time, even though progress is slower. Training is a priority in Gus’s life. She very rarely misses a workout and it shows in her progress.
She’s using weight now on her box squats and is starting to move the weights on her bench presses and rack pulls fairly quickly. More important, she moves much more confidently, her stride is much stronger and she seems happy.
Here’s a short video of her training this afternoon at the gym. Note how she’s just blasting through the reps!
In addition to these exercises, she does rack pulls, pushes a modified prowler, practices getting up from the ground, and does weighted carries around the gym – up and down platforms, around obstacles.
