WHY THE NEW PLAN IS SO EFFECTIVE
The long and short of it is that the progressive overload training method used in the new Weight Training Plan is so effective at focusing on workout-to-workout and week-to-week progress. Our bodies quickly adapt to the challenges we set, making them less effective with each encounter. I not only build progressions into the actual workouts but take you through how to track them and apply them to help ensure greater progress.
This feature can’t be conveyed through the sample workouts because I outline everything on the pages before each week, but you’ll get a tiny dose here.
WEIGHT TRAINING PLAN 2020: Sample Workout
This preview workout comes from Week 2. It may look like a normal workout but you need the full plan to understand how to set up your baseline in Week 1 because in this workout, we are increasing the volume.
VOLUME = SETS x REPS x WEIGHT
^an increase in any of those variables will increase the volume, which is a progressive overload technique we are working on in week 2. You will see and feel this increased challenge.
In the week 2 workouts, I’ve programmed in an increased volume through sets and reps. When you have the full plan, you would have already recorded your Week 1 foundational movement numbers to build on in this workout.
