How This NHL Draft Pick Added 192 Pounds to His Lifts in 13 Weeks

"What kinds of results can I expect to achieve following your training program?"

That's a question I hear often.

So here's a real, meat on the bones "case study" for ya.

Over the 2017 off-season, my boy Kasper Björkqvist - Providence College sophomore and Pittsburgh Penguins draft pick - followed the 4x per week, upper/lower split laid out in Next Level Hockey Training.

In 13 weeks of off-season training, his 1RM improved:

* Power Clean from Hang 105 kg / 231 pounds -> 132.5 kg / 291 pounds

* Front Squat 140 kg / 308 pounds -> 165 kg / 363 pounds

* Trap Bar Deadlift 205 kg / 451 pounds -> 240 kg / 528 pounds

Total improvement = 192 pounds in three key lifts measuring lower body strength and power.

(Funny thing is, he added 55 pounds to his front squat and 77 pounds to trap bar deads by performing both lifts only six times all summer)

I should also mention that he ranked #1 in physical tests at the Penguins' 2017 prospect development camp.

Exceptional results, I should say...

Moral of the story?

No program can add nearly 200 pounds to your lifts overnight.

But a smart training program will help you get significantly stronger across the board in a single summer.

Thing is, you gotta work your ass off for those results.

If you're willing to put in the sweat equity...

... and if you're ready to experience gainzzz like Kasper...
