Pre-Season -Summer/Fall 2021 Training Cycle
Strength Program: Week 1, Session 2
In the first week of training we take on a combination of bodyweight static and explosive compound movements. Each session is composed of four parts aiming to provide a full body workout. Exercise routines begin with moderate intensity and volume and will increase as the weeks progress. To place emphasis on anaerobic endurance we always include a conditioning component which is expected to be completed with limited recovery time between exercises. To best gauge your progress and identify your baseline use the PDF provided in each session to keep notes of your sessions outcomes.
