8 Week Metabolic, Muscle & Strength Spring Program
A Fusion of Kettlebells and Bodyweight Training
The FitStrong Spring Program is a simple fusion of both strength focussed training and metabolic enhancing training using Kettlebells and bodyweight movements..
The three days that we will rotate between place demands on two different energy systems.
Day 1: One pure power and strength
Day 2: Endurance and muscle building.
Day 3: Vital ‘Other Stuff’
Now, you’re probably not going to turn into Arnie overnight or even after 8 weeks but creating the stimulation for maintaining muscle hypertrophy helps immensely in creating more favourable conditioning for increasing muscular metabolism and hopefully fat loss.
To simplify, one session you’ll lift heavy with lots of rest and the other session you’ll push a little longer and get a little out of breath.
At FitStrong we heavily promote moving better as well as developing our strengths. With this in mind, the program does include elements of mobility and bodyweight movements also.
4 x 10
This program is built with four (roughly) 10 minute sections, finishing with a 5 minute cool down (either static stretches or repeating some of the warm up mobility movements).
Why? Oftentimes I hear frustrations that, “I’ve not got time for a 30 to 45 minutes training session”.
This program is slightly unique in that you don’t have to complete each of the four sections and that if stuck for time, you build your daily routine to meet your time budget. Only got 10 minutes? I’d recommend just running through the warm up mobility routine. Yep, if stuck for time, guaranteed you’ll be slightly more stressed too. For that reason your body does not need more stress in the form of muscular stress. The body when under stress needs a reset. The warm up will offer just that.
Got 20 minutes? Do the warm up then any of the 10 minute blocks that you’d like to do. Keep it simple.
Of course, you might find that once you start, that you might find it easier to squeeze in one more 10 minute section…. go for it.
Each training session emphasises pressing and rowing to develop the shoulders and arms in general. We play with various leg movements and both days use the kettlebell swing to enhance power and fat utilisation using tried and tested StrongFirst ‘Strong Endurance’ protocols.
But here’s the caveat – I’m not a believer that exercise is a good tool for body fat loss. Yes, strength exercise helps to boost the metabolic rate but pales in comparison to dialling in our nutrition habits.
So, I will be providing just ONE Nutrition Challenge to accompany the exercise component. We’ll get to that soon.
I do have an online version of this to be released on my Teachable platform, but if you prefer a slightly more low-tech access to the program, for $20 you can have the PDF version with workable links to video demonstrations. Yep, if you print the PDF the links don’t work!
At the checkout, once you completed the purchase the receipt page will include the link to the download. But, if you don’t want to go through that, once you’ve paid and I receive confirmation from paypal, I can email you the PDF too. Your choice.
