Week 5 Cycle28

For the following 6 weeks we will be utilizing accommodating resistance as a new training strategy. Essentially this is using special means to accommodate resistance throughout the entire range of motion rather than a specific point. Because of some joint angles and the velocity of movement, the force of the movement is less at certain joint angles.

In practical terms for us, bands can train you to break through certain sticking points during a lift.


There will be a double conditioning piece one day per week with a longer 15min piece also once per week.


BB Complexes are back, the strategy for this will be that in the first session you do it, you start at 5 reps per exercise and at every subsequent session you add one rep per exercise.


Our new benches will be getting their maiden voyage throughout this cycle too which will add nice new variety to our training.
