Building Strength - 8 Week Program

Optimize performance, increase resilience, and develop constant readiness for the physical demands of sport and the adventures of life.

Building Strength is an 8-week program* (with two training days/week) that's scalable to everyone and can be completed by all training levels. This is intended to be a foundational program with the goals of acclimating to a balanced weight training regimen, preparing the body gradually for greater training loads, and establishing a solid mechanical foundation.


This program would fall into the "GPP" category aka "General Physical Preparedness." In this phase, strength coaches emphasize proper mechanics, movement quality, volume, and general athleticism. In general, we want to avoid building strength on top of dysfunction, so our initial priority is to develop a solid foundation of movement quality and resilience.
