FEBRUARY 2nd 2020. New Cycle of mass inducing swolleness

FEBRUARY 2nd 2020

New Cycle of mass inducing swolleness

A magnum-sized strength and conditioning program, based on powerlifting and sports performance.

-Anyone following the 4 day routine should not do “humpday pumpday”. They should do the active rest. Whether they do the Sabado Gigante (which is the same programming as humpday pumpday) is case by case depending how they feel from the week’s worth of work. Don’t over do it. The Sabado Gigante often overlaps things done during the week. When in doubt, push or drag sleds and do some curls.

-Afterburners: These are optional conditioning pieces of the programming. Whether a person completes this is dependent on their goals and calorie intake. If actual sustained strength and mass is the goal, the afterburners should not be done. At least not without increased calorie count to accommodate the extra effort. That being said, some sustained sweat should happen at least once a week. That is the active rest on Wednesday.

Additionally, some of the movements in the Afterburners are not found in the GainCity accessory work. If a person wants to get those movements in for accessory but doesnt want to overdo the sweats, just take the movements and rep counts out of the afterburner and do them like regular sets/reps.

Pre-Flight: All burn, no breath today. Get everyone a sweet chest pump with bench, then get a girth differential dose of tricep action, backed up by some back and biceps work. Finish with a nasty overhead shoulder burn.

DB Shoulder Press

DB Bench Press

3x10 @50%

GainCity:

CT Fletcher’s Tricep Gauntlet, 200 reps DB Skull Crusher https://youtu.be/7N65yS8z9J8

*Place 5 different sets of DB’s on the floor descending in weight. Perform 20 reps at each weight. Then...go back up in weight performing another 20 reps per weight, for 200 reps total! (by no means do these reps need to be performed unbroken. Start light. It will suck as it progresses, especially because the last set will be the heaviest)

4x

Max reps rig rows https://youtu.be/lj_1QVt64bs

10, 90 degree DB lateral raises https://youtu.be/yzelh7YqEpg

:20 Bulgarian Split squat (unweighted)

20m Sprint

:20 Box Jump

20m Sprint

**2 min Rest**

One Time Through For time:

30 Burpee box jump overs

https://youtu.be/IPcDt9BVBYI **Video doesn’t show the split squats. People will use a bench for the squats and be standing behind a box. Once the :30 seconds of squats are finished, they go directly into the box jump, directly into the sprint.

*Each round of squats, alternate legs so each leg gets 3 rounds of work

*Box Jumps: Looking for maximum hip extension and opening. We’re trying not to bend our knees very much at all on the landing. A lower box than usual may be needed

*Sprint: SPrint
