Chapter 03: Dennis

Dennis is one of my favorite clients. He’s 69 years old and he works out like he’s 39. I often complement that his motor runs high. No matter what I throw at him, his approach to our workouts is always the same: “Ok, fine. I can do that.”
Do you know the fastest way to increase people’s heart rate? Make them go uphill. Or up stairs. Here, Dennis is doing a core component of our workout. I have him do one or two flights of stairs (sometimes with weight, sometimes without) and rest accordingly before we repeat. Sometimes I overload him and he has to rest on the bench outside the staircase. But today, he crushed this set at the end of our workout.

Those are my thoughts. What are yours?
