Sup everyone! I’m hoping you’ve all heard the good news about the new challenge we are rolling out for the summer. If you haven’t, please read Neal’s Fire it up Friday post for the big picture of the program. He mentioned that we were going to roll out more details soon, so here’s the not-so-skinny (see what I did there?).
First, we want you to get strong. Thats what this is all about. I’m not going to rehash everything that Neal already said, so here’s some more information. The cost is going to be $200 (lump-sum), or $75/month as an add on to your monthly membership. Whoa, whoa, whoa… calm down for a second everyone. This covers the cost of both hydrostatic weigh-ins, a challenge shirt (it’ll be cool, I promise), and prize money for the winner. “How do you win G2?!” I hear ya. Simply put, the person who gets the strongest while putting on the most muscle. There’s a little more to it, but that will be outlined in the handout that will be available in the gym this week.
There will be some extra work that will be assigned/strongly-recommended-that-you-complete for every week. This will be in addition to the regular gym programming and will be in the form of mobility, lifting, nutrition advice, etc. Some general guidelines for food will be outlined before the program kicks off too. You can expect to have to do some extra work every day that you come in to work out. Since this is a strength program, the volume will gradually get higher and higher, with some back-off weeks as well. Get ready to work!!
I think between Neal and myself, we have laid out most of the program. If you have any questions, leave a comment or ask a coach. I don’t know about you, but I’m super pumped for this. Strength is my favorite thing to work on! (I just got myself pumped writing that!)
