Premier Strength Athletes Makes Penguins

October 9th, 2010

WHO’S HOT?

Mark Letestu – Penguins center Mark Letestu came to training camp intent on earning a spot with the big club. Such a mindset allowed the 25-year-old Elk Point, Alberta native to tie for the team scoring lead with six points (1G-5A).

Mark had a great summer training at premier strength, and it has paid off earning a spot as the 3rd line center for the Pittsburgh Penguins.  One of Marks main goals was to decrease his body fat and maintain lean muscle mass.  Through a discipline diet and proper training we were able to decrease Marks body fat to under 9% while maintaining his weight at 195 lbs.

The fear when dropping body fat is that the athlete will also lose strength.  Marks Squat Max = 415 lbs, Clean Max = 235lbs, and Bench Press Max = 260 lbs.  As you can see from those numbers that did not happen to mark.
