This week we will start a new strength cycle. This cycle will last for 12 weeks. The goal of this strength cycle is to establish a solid level of strength and at the same time allow for some fixes both neurologically and physiologically.
Our main objectives of this program are:
1. Get Jacked! – these sets of 5 live in both the worlds of CNS efficiency (raw strength) and hypertrophy (building cross sectional size of muscle). Girls- please don’t worry about this. building some muscle will give you a more “toned” look. Not huge! Lol.
2. Be Bulletproof! – (movement) Posture and position will take priority in these reps.
3. Get Fixed! – Fix our weak points in our movement. If we have some issues in glutes, ankles, knees, upper back, or trunk – we will force the fixing of these movements by learning how to position to get these limiting factors out of our movement and challenging those positions with increasing load.
4. Get Mobile! – This piggy backs on to the above. By putting ourselves in to the “perfect” position then challenging ourselves under load, it will be a load forced stretch. Even better than 10min of stretching. Yep, pretty much!
