Final Week of cycle 02/12 – 07/12

Cycle 41 Week 6

One of the main features of this new 6 week training cycle is the re-introduction of a progressively loaded 20 rep squat routine. However, this time it will be in the form of the front squat. This will be programmed in at the start of the session 3 times per week (mon,wed,fri). If members are not in on any of those days, there will be an option to complete it on Tuesdays and Thursdays at some point throughout the programmed session.

We will also be introducing a power based, core based and TGU based warm-up as staples throughout the 6 weeks.

Things that are making a return this cycle are the likes of the timed BB reverse lunges, KB snatches, BB good mornings and wall walks to name but a few.

This program leads us nicely into mid-December and so is a great time to get some quality training in before the festive season.

Really like the look of this one folks so have at it and let’s finish off this year with a solid 6 weeks of structured training.

Final Week in Cycle – Oct 14th – 19th

Cycle 40 Week 6

This new cycle sees the introduction of the box squat with the intention of building starting strength from the bottom. This will also keep variation in the big lift. Other exercises which may not have previously been used include the crossover step up, along with varying the loading of a walking lunge. Band resisted deadlifts will be used in order to provide a different stimulus and promote further progress in strength and power.

A varince of single leg/arm, core stability and strength and conditioning pieces as always should provide for challenging but enjoyable sessions.

As a new 6 week cycle ensues, always a good time to set some goals.
