Q & A with JAKE
a. Where are you from?
St. Petersburg, Florida
b. Instagram name
c. What motivates you to train?
Being able to push my body past its limits, seeing where the boundaries actually are. Always trying to be better and do better. Seeing your progress is another big motivator.
d. What’s your greatest success in lifting?
My greatest success would have to be the progress I’ve made on my back.
e. What music do you listen to when training?
I usually listen to some Trap, but I’m usually all over the place. Anything with a heavy beat to it.
f. Who is your weightlifting inspiration?
Honestly, there are a ton of pros I’ve been watching, I’ve been recently watching Andrew Jacked and Larry Wheels. The energy they have for hitting PRs almost every other gym session. And the drive they have to push themselves mentally and physically is definitely something to look up to.
g. Do you have any shout outs or people you’d like to thank?
I’d like to shout my homie @el_cuerpo20, Tim, he’s been there at the beginning and gave me some knowledge to get me to where I’m at now.
