This program directs its efforts towards improving efficiency and capacity necessary to improve your barbell cycling capabilities. This program works very effectively as a 3, 4 or 5 day routine.
This cycling template follows a periodized approach to ensure maximal physiological adaptation. This change in your body's capacity dramatically improves your ability to move a barbell in high rep situations.
You will also receive video analysis during your entire time on the program! We currently have 2 National Champions and a USA Weightlifting World Team Coach on our staff that will be reviewing your videos and giving helpful feedback and encouragement.
All video analysis is done on our Team Facebook page which you will have complete access to!

Here is an overview of the sample workout listed below.
Most workouts in this program contain 2 components each day. In the first part of the workout you will work up to an unbroken max Snatch, Clean or shoulder to overhead variation for a presribed number of reps. In the second part there will be either an EMOM or AMRAP based barbell conditioning piece.
