Sunday DECEMBER 26th 2021 -Week 2 “A nice neatly wrapped new 2 week package of gains for you.

Sunday DECEMBER 26th 2021 -Week 2 “A nice neatly wrapped new 2 week package of gains for you, just in time for Christmas!” This week’s program will be a bit more simple to accommodate the schedules of the holiday’s. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!

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

**Programming options. Choose one of the training tiers to follow (Red, White, or Blue). Each day perform ONLY that part of the Major Lift section. Red is the foundational strength template, based on 5/3/1. White is the Powerlifting tier for max strength building. Blue is the bodybuilding tier. All other sections of the day’s training will be completed by everyone.**

-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 doesn’t want to overdo the sweats, just take the movements and rep counts out of the afterburner and do them like regular sets/reps.

**Set up training lanes. The barbell will be setup facing a 15m length lane. The athlete will perform 2 power cleans, then 1 bar over burpee which will put them in the running lane. From there, they run the shuttle. NOTE! Today the shuttle ends on the near end of the 15m. They need to sprint back to their starting positions

**To clarify, everytime a barbell must be dropped from the power cleans, 3 burpees and a shuttle run must be performed before the power cleans may be resumed.
