22JUL13 – Week of Programming

You Will Overhead Squat..and You Will Like It

This cycle our lower body movement will be the overhead squat and upper body movement will be the split jerk. These are most advanced movements in the macro cycle (close to year’s worth of programming). Go ahead and take 2 minutes to get your bitching over with about the overhead squat..we know it’s not your favorite and we know you don’t like it…and we know you have (insert any excuse here) why you “can’t” do them. We don’t care..you’re gonna do them anyways.

The good news is that you’ll have 6 weeks to practice them and get better on them. It’s important that you get in on Monday/Wednesday to get your training maxes established. Of course you can skip every Monday if you want. Then again you’re the one who has to live with yourself …just saying.

The biggest problems you don’t like the overhead squat is your lack of mobility (especially in the thoracic/hip areas). We’ll be teaching you all mobility drills to get these areas prepped for lifting. So stay with it and spend the necessary time getting prepped and warmed up. This cycle you’ll have the opportunity to see HUGE increase in your PR with this movement if you stick to it.
