Thursday August 15th
We are now embarking on a new 3 month cycle. We will start with a Hi Rep- Low Weight Strength Endurance protocol , utilising the 5 x 20 Method on Squat and Bench Day and the 6/12 /24 Method on Deadlift and Shoulder Day. Once complete we will move on to a cycle of Tempo Training for Functional Hypertrophy and Finish with A Strength Cycle in the third month. Once the third month is completed we will retest our One Rep Maxes and see just how far we have come having completed all three cycles. The overall curve is volume to strength but you will experience a good deal of both throughout resulting in strong, athletic, functional physiques.
