Spring Break Beach Body has come and went.
Again our focus shifts. We want to continue to push the pedal and keep our focus on the end goal in December. Each new phase has it’s purpose, but training can’t stay the same forever.
Full disclosure, the beach body program was just a high volume, medium to low intensity workout phase. Those types of workouts are especially good at helping you gain size and build a good foundation for what the next phase. On the one hand, you can gain some size and feel like you are getting bigger. But size doesn’t always mean strength. Although, it does create a foundation that allows us to add weight to the bar and THAT is what will build strength.
So this next phase is what will really make an impact on your athleticism. Where the beach body program would build the size of the engine, a good strength program is what increases the horsepower of the car. A good strength program will allow you to go from being a Honda Civic to having the physiological capabilities of a Mustang. So think of this next phase as the point where you start to add horsepower to your frame. The major framework of this program will be based around three lifts:
- The Back Squat
- The Bench Press
- The Deadlift
We will go into more detail about each exercise and why they are so important. For now, get familiar with each of these and comment below with any questions you have about technique and drills to improve.
It’s time to build some strength!
