Championship techniques to dig the deepest possible muscular inroad. These techniques are augmented with the tactic of learning how to make light weights heavy to keep the trainee safe as they explore the outer limits of strength capacities. We teach 5 sequential variations of the bench press and overhead press to ingrain technique and give an entry level start point to the program.
• Proper bench pressing is unrivaled for building and strengthening upper and lower pectorals, front and side deltoids, triceps, and to a lesser extent, lats.
• Proper overhead pressing is unrivaled for building and strengthening front and side deltoids, upper pectorals, triceps, and to a lesser extent, lats.
Periodization tactics and strategies to turn exercising into training. This practical programming knowledge can be implemented by anyone to break through training stagnation at any level. A goal without a plan is a wish.
Come join us on Saturday, February 29 for the Purposefully Primitive Bench/Overhead Press workshop to learn the methods of the elite and how this approach can take you to the next level of your physique and performance!
Anyone joining us from out of town we would recommend any of the Marriott properties at Rio/Washingtonian. They are inexpensive if you book far enough in advance and everything you could possibly need is within walking distance. ?
