JANUARY 19th 2020 New Cycle of gains

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.

Toy Soldiers

Side Shuffles/Burpees:

*Have people line up facing you in their universal athletic position. On your que, point left or right or down. They must follow your lead and shuffle in the direction you point to. Don’t say anything. They need to keep their heads up and pay attention to your visual ques. Change the direction any time you want. When you point down, they must do an athletic burpee and then shuffle in place until you point to another direction. Have them go for about 20 seconds and to this 3-4 times.

Afterburner: Double Tabata:

Air Squats

Shuttle Run (5m, 10m, 5m)

*Alternate movements, and go for 8 mins.

*If people finish the shuttle run in less than 20 seconds, they get extra rest. If people cannot finish the shuttle run in 20 seconds, scale it to 5m/10m. If you have the available equipment, place objects at the turn arounds for the shuttle sprints that they have to pick up and put back i.e. whiteboard erasers, markers, cones, etc.
