Sunday February 06 2022 -Week 2 The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.

Sunday February 06 2022 -Week 2 “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time to plant a tree is now.”

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.

**If there isn’t enough room on the rig for all the bench presses and squats, then make the squat come from the floor and have people clean it. Keep it a back squat, so theyll have to press it overhead and onto their backs. These weights will probably have to be considerably lighter**


Tabata Girth Differential:

DB Kickbacks

*Go for 12 minutes

*Every :20 round, alternate from curls to push press to kickbacks, so each exercise gets 8 rounds of :20 of work.
