As a hedge fund manager, Jordi spends most of his day at his desk – save for his weekly soccer and volleyball sessions. He started personal training at Level in March with the goal of preventing injury during his soccer games. He also wanted to increase muscle mass and increase strength in his posterior chain.

When he first started training with Jeff Chuang, Jordi had good agility, but needed to work on his strength and endurance. With this in mind, Jeff developed a personalised programme for Jordi, with bi-weekly session focussing on different aspects. The first session would focus on compound lifts, like trap bar deadlifts and barbell back squats, while the second session would focus on unilateral movements, such as step ups and lunges.

Jeff noticed that Jordi’s shoulders tend to round forward, and included more pulling exercises, such as dumbbell rows that focus on posterior pulling strength.

In just 6 months, Jordi can now deadlift 80kg (from 50kg) and can now complete 5 reps with good form. He also does his kettlebell step-ups with double the weight he started out with.
