Ok, before I get into the specifics of this first strength cycle , let’s talk about who should be following IronGrip Strength.
Who is this program intended for?
The Iron Grid Strength program is intended for those who want to get stronger and faster. You are getting ready for a competition or just want a general strength and power training program which includes strongman.
Ask yourself this… Is absolute strength a glaring weakness in my exercise? Do I want to take the next three months to focus on getting stronger?
When are the workouts?
Workouts will be released weekly on Monday morning only for that week. The weeks work will be posted so you can adjust your schedule as needed. You may start the cycle at any time but I recommend starting the cycle from week one. The cycle is progressive and starting from the beginning will ensure the safest and most effective advancement.
12 Week Cycle details!
I’ll be using the “Conjugate Method” format for all 4 major Power Lifts (Squat, Deadlift, Bench, and adding the Shoulder Presses to the mix). This method linking special exercises or accessories will enable you to raise your lifts. I feel it will carry over into competitive sports including the competitive sport of fitness by becoming more proficient at moving heavy weights for multiple reps.
Our first cycle will take us into the end of May. Ideally, we would like to find a meet around this time to compete in. I would like to see everyone compete in a meet at the end of the cycle at the least. Those of you who already compete know that a Powerlifting Meet is coming – June 13th 2015.
