This program is aimed at developoing the complete athlete through Strength, Power, Control, & Capacity work, all built into a 3-Day lifting schedule.
Over the course of 48 total sessions, two major training cycles will be employed, with pre-, mid-, and post-assessment of all the relevant performance markers listed below.
In each 24-session cycle, a major emphasis will be placed on building raw total-body strength through the powerlifts and their variations. Simultaneously, we will develop our rate of force production, or “Power”, through a progression of plyometrics and the “Clean” movement – utilizing all its "Power" variations, from the top down. Lastly, we will consistently build durability and work capacity through a blend of active stability/mobility work, hypertrophy training, accessory strength development, and metabolic conditioning.
- 48 Total Training Sessions
- 16 Weeks, 3 Sessions scheduled per week
- Each Workout is designed to take approximately 45 minutes.
Each training session contains a brief guided warm up, stability and pre-hab work, plyometrics, max strength & power development (powerlifts and olympic weightlifting), and supplemental strength training (unilateral work, push/pull, etc).
Every other training session will also end with an intense, competitive "Pillar" workout with complete instruction.
Grades 9 – 12 – Athletes who already have a complete fundamental fitness education and wish to prepare for a sport season. They should not be actively engaged in a competitive athletic season.
