Cycle 18 Week 2


With testing completed following cycle 17, it is now the beginning of a brand new cycle.


We will be continuing to implement the compound lifts such as the squat and deadlift every week along with some single leg work such as the rear foot elevated split squat. Both bilateral and unilateral upperbody work will also be incorporated.


The Turkish Get-up will remain in the programme as well as improving on general core strength and stability.


As usual, appropriate activation/mobilisation techniques will be used in all warm ups as well as rehab/prehab strategies.
