Fitness Goals: To get stronger and gain muscle mass.
Frequency: 3 days per week of weights for about an hour.
How do you train: Each day focuses on one main exercise such as squat or bench press with other exercises incorporated to assist progression of the main exercise. I use three set for every exercise because this has been shown to be optimal for strength gains.
Goal: To get stronger!
Frequency: Three days per week
How I train: I just started the 5/3/1 program by Jim Wendler which is designed to increase your strength in four lifts- the back squat, deadlift, bench press, and military press. I just finished doing CrossFit for a year and a half and felt small and weak so wanted to get back into some basic lifts.
Come to Empower in the afternoons or early evenings and you may see Chris and Paul training together! To get more details on 5/3/1, the program they follow, check it out here:
