Programming 08.05

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.

We have just finished an 8 week cycle testing and improving some big lifts. The current cycle will be moving away from maximal strength and towards higher volume, time under tension and making sure we move as well as possible.

Generally, day by day it will look like this…

Monday - lower body - squats + short workout

Tuesday - upper body - bench + accessory

Wednesday - one long workout

Thursday - lower body - RDLs + split squats + interval workout

Friday - upper body - push / pull

Saturday - big team workouts

Sunday - functional bodybuilding
