Welcome to our 6 week, get strong program. Not only is this series a great way to skyrocket your strength and break through plateaus, it’s just plain fun to GET STRONG! Want to reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass and burn calories more efficiently? Strength training to the rescue! Strength training is a key component of overall health and fitness for everyone.
We will meet once a week, where we will focus on the following three lifts, the deadlift, press and front squat with some assistance work sprinkled in. Class is limited to 6 athletes.
Each athlete will get a customized program based on what their current 1rep max is in each lift, all the percentages and calculations are done for each athlete. We keep a record of your numbers and your personal performance will be tracked every class.
Strength training also helps you:
Develop strong bones. By stressing your bones, strength training increases bone density and reduces the risk of osteoporosis.
Be a better athlete. The stronger you are, the faster you can run, the higher you can jump, the more weight you can lift, and your chances of injury decrease, which all lead to better performance in your sport.
Control your weight. As you gain muscle, your body begins to burn calories more efficiently.
Increase your confidence. Strength is freedom to do things independently.
Boost your stamina. As you get stronger, you won’t fatigue as easily. Building muscle also contributes to better balance, which can help you maintain independence as you age.
Manage chronic conditions. Strength training can reduce the signs and symptoms of many chronic conditions, including back pain, arthritis, obesity, heart disease and diabetes.
Sharpen your focus. Some research suggests that regular strength training helps improve attention for older adults.
