Programming 02.18

Our programming will follow cycles, covering all areas of the body and all energy systems each week.


The programming will see our main training days Monday - Friday. Saturday will be our version of game day - a big team workout where everyone goes hard. Sunday will be similar to Functional bodybuilding, no conventional workout. Lot’s of unilateral strength work to iron out any in balances and help bulletproof your body. This is great for beginners looking to gain strength and stability for the main classes.


Generally, day by day it will look like this…


Monday - front squats + strict pulling + workout

Tuesday - one long workout

Wednesday - RDL + accessory lower body + workout

Thursday - gymnastic upper body / core strength + interval workout

Friday - barbell complex + workout

Saturday - big team workouts

Sunday - functional bodybuilding
