W ARNING!
phase 1
weeks 1 - 2  STRENGTH
NOTE: The goal in this phase is to not only find your strengths and weaknesses, but
also set the standard for the upcoming phases. As you can see, this is a fairly simple
phase so youll want to focus on form, function and getting confident in lifting HEAVY.
Track your weights and try to increase the load slightly for the second week. Even
small increments of 2 1/2lbs to 5lbs are considered good progress.

NOTE: In this phase well be focusing on the involvement of more muscle fibers
throughout each muscle group, and introduce isolation exercises to help recruit more
activation in focused areas. The volume will increase as the weights will lower, but as

increasing the load to 80% and changing the workout split.

weeks 9 - 10
NOTE: This will be the last phase for strength and well be utilizing a 5 set with a 5, 4, 3,
2, 1 rep scheme to try and get close to, if not set a new PR. Your starting 1RM percentage
will be close to 80% and youll work your way to 95 100% 1 RM. In addition to the
physiological aspect, a pyramid set can also work as a mental trick. This is due to the fact
that lowering the reps with each set will feel easier as youre not performing as many
repetitions even though youre actually increasing the weight with each set.
