Just Get Strong

I am super excited about this cycle. This program is designed to get you strong and healthy. The workouts are not designed to keep you in the gym three hours. They are designed to be totally efficient, so you can spend your time recovering. I wanted to design a workout that one could do over and over with continued results. I also wanted to design a workout that would force adaptation without excessive breakdown in the body. This is the plan that will get strong, and it will have you feeling great.

Here is what the plan looks like:

Pick 1-2 exercise from each

Basically just choose 1-2 of the exercises listed based on your own weaknesses sticking to the recommended volume. This gives the athlete a little freedom to address the issues that they feel needs addressing. I am super excited to watch the results from this program.

It is a little simpler than some of my past programs, but I believe that this one will help the majority more efficiently. Feel free to post your results on Instagram, Facebook, and/or Twitter letting us know what’s up.

2015 is going to be an exciting year for us. We hope that we can help as many people reach their goals as possible. Here are a couple ways that we can help you:

1. If you are a weightlifting purist and are searching for a team and coach, try out the Mash Mafia Weightlifting Team. I am going to keep the prices the same for the first couple of weeks, and then they will increase to reflect the quality. To check out the online team, click on the link below:
