Strength Session With Jai Courtney

Jai Courtney had his first taste of the 98 GYM training when he was cast in the Water Diviner movie. The film is set in war time and in preparation the actors were all put through a military inspired 98 training camp that included multiple daily training sessions and also required the lads to dig a trench. Jai has a great appreciation for the 98 training method and ethos and returns to the 98 GYM in Sydney every time he is in town. Last week we caught up and hit Thursdays STR session from the 98 Program. Jai’s definitely goes hard and gives it his all in the gym, he fits in well down here. Below is the session we hit.
