New Cycle, Get on Board
Its time for another new cycle here at The Strength Shop, and not a minute too soon. Most of us are looking for a program to get us in shape for the new year. Well, look no further! If you want to get stronger, leaner, meaner, and just flat out all around beastlier, this program is gonna be for you. It's going to be a nasty hybrid of influences from several highly respected coaches, blended with my own methodology. If names such as Dan John, Jim Wendler, Zach Even-Esh, Micheal Rutherford, and Mike Burgener, among others, get you all hot and bothered, then you got bigger problems than I can help you with! But, you will love the programming I'm presenting over the next few months to all of The Strength Shop followers for free. We'll be discussing our training, nutrition, how to best stick to the game plan and any other pertinent information that is relevant to our goals. It's going to be a wild ride, with lots of blood, sweat and tears. Hold on tight to your foam roller, you'll need it.
We have a good amount of olympic lifting, powerlifting, intense conditioning and no shortage of tools in our toolbox. If you do not have every tool we use, don't cry about it, just make a logical substitution. We have an intelligent design of barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, sandbags, Bulgarian training bags, etc. to keep your mind fresh, and your body thrashed, yet ready to take on any and all new challenges that you may be facing.
The program will essentially be four days a week, training on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. You can make any necessary adjustments, but try to keep up over time. If you would like to add another day or two to your program, I recommend practicing your weaknesses, and do some general conditioning and recovery work. Good luck and enjoy your progress and new pr's!
