We're all excited about Shuan's remarkable mid-transformation progress from last week's body composition assessment. Did you see his photos? The guy's got abs! But, there's still a lot of work to get done before his final reveal at week 8 and it's back to the grind for Shaun and his trainer Rob Sulaver in week six. This week, Rob tasks Shaun with a strength-oriented 5x5 routine. "Basically, we're trying to amp up Shaun's strength in order to help his hypertrophy along. The first block is strength development. The second, all about hypertrophy. It's a win, win," says Sulaver. All the work appears to be working.
Note Shaun's lift increases: 35-lb. DB Bench (45 degree) in week 1 - 60-lb. DB Bench (90 degree) in week 6. 132-lb. Trap Bar Deadlift in week 2 - 220-lb. Trap Bar Deadlift in week 6.
