Week 2 Cycle 25


For this new 6 week cycle we will be alternating, week to week, between front squatting twice per week and deadlifting once per week OR Deadlifting twice per week and front squatting once per week. In this way, every 2 weeks members will have a chance to both squat and deadlift on 3 separate occassions. For both exercises, one of these sessions will be focused on going heavy, one will be lighter but utilizing different training techniques such as eccentric focused/ isometric work, and one day will be a combination of heavy and light in order to promote some increases in mass.


Two days of the week we will be doing an extended warm up allowing us to work on some extra plyometric training where the focus will be on moving more explosively. A barbell complex will be a mainstay for one of the days with the focus on being adding a small amount of weight to the bar each week.


Obviously, we will be keeping up our single leg/ single arm work with the RFESS being kept in the programme. As always plenty of effective core strengthening/stability exercises will be seen as well as much loved conditioning tools and hill runs.


After a satisfying test week we have a challenging but fun 6 weeks ahead!
