–> THERE ARE 14 PROGRESSION LADDERS FOR YOU TO CLIMB, BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO MASTER THEM ALL
From three types of single-leg squats, to classic moves like chin-ups, push-ups and dead hangs, to gymnastic strength moves like the Tuck Planche, the Hollow Body Hold and the L-Sit…master this lot and your whole body will reshape, you’ll be forced to get lean as hell and your abs will be strong, sculpted and the stuff of envy.
–> WE TEST MONTHLY TO TRACK PROGRESS
Test yourself on these ladders monthly, make that your sport–a ritual to train for–and you will reap great benefits. This is profoundly motivating because there is always the next test day around the corner and there as there are lots of components you’ll usually find that you’ll be better at at least one or two things every month.
–> WE FOLLOW THE STRENGTH SESSIONS ONLINE PROGRAMME
Although it forces you to train just a few moves each month, and requires just 20 minutes per day, it is carefully planned to make you better at every move on this challenge. The difiiculty isn’t getting the workouts done, the difficulty–but also the payoff– comes in having the tenacity and courage to stick to the programme and get it done well, consistently.
–> WE PLOT, PLAN, RE-STRATEGISE AND RE-MOTIVATE MONTHLY
This is how the entire system is designed: each month you’ll test and mark your progress, then you get the novelty of a programme change and us prompting you to take the time to re-strategise and re-motivate. This is what makes the programme stick, and sticking to it is what causes fundamental physique change.
–> MASTER THE STRENGTH SESSIONS…GET A BETTER LOOKING BODY.
Because to Master The Strength Sessions, you’ll need to get really strong and you’ll need to get really lean. As all the progression ladders demand you get fundamentally better at serious bodyweight strength skills, you can’t afford to be carrying any extra timber. So, it’s simple: Master The Strength Sessions…and you’ll have to lose fat, get toned and look amazing.
–> YEARS. NOT WEEKS.
This isn’t meant as a six-week novelty challenge. The people we work with aren’t going to ,aster this overnight. But then: muscle doesn’t grow overnight. Fat doesn’t permanently disappear overnight. Outstanding physiques are earned through smart, consistent training. Each month you’ll test your performance, each month you’ll edge further up the ladders. We want something to keep you striving for the longterm. Like an athlete. Piece-by-piece you’ll build–and maintain–an outstanding physique.
–> HOW TO MASTER THE STRENGTH SESSIONS
I hate to break it to you, but first you’re going to have to eat right, then you’re going to have to train a lot. First, you learn the moves (or you won’t know what to do), then we test to find out where you are now, then you follow The Strength Sessions Online Programme–either with us in the gym, or on your own (or with a frIend if you have any) at home or in the gym, then you repeat the cycle monthly: train, test, re-plan. Train, test, re-plan.
–> DON’T WORK OUT. TRAIN.
This is a mindset thing, a strategy thing and a physiological principally thing: do random stuff, keep switching what you’re doing, strive just to ‘feel worked out’ and you’ll get nowhere; Train with consistency and purpose, make movement a practise, strive to Master The Strength Sessions and you’ll get significantly better results.
–> SOME REALISTIC TARGETS
The upper echelons of these ladders are HARD. Elite athlete’s might stroll it, but for you and I, for bigger boys and smaller girls, we might never master it all. ‘Master The Strength Sessions’ may mean different things to different folk. Here are a few realistic levels to strive for.
–> RANDOM RATIONALE
Why are there so many bits to master? Why strength and not cardio? Why all the gymnastics moves? Why nearly all body-weight? Answers to all this and more, will be here. You know this isn’t a perfect programme, right? I’m happy to tell you that and I’m gonna to tell you why.
–> HOW IT WORKS
You got the basics, but let’s talk details. Each ladder has three different strength levels to hit, and you have to do it perfectly and on camera to get to the next level. Soon I’ll put more silly but neccessary details and rules like that here.
–> THE WORLD NEEDS MORE OF THIS
Theres plenty of cardio challenges knocking about. But what about those who want to re-shape, to be an effective minimalist, to train smart but still be part of something? Where are the strength challenges for those who want to re-shape? Ask any bodybuilder or physique athlete: that’s not primarily about cardio, that’s about food and resistance training.
