In this mini burst series, Smitty and OB are breaking down program design into four episodes: Assessment, Warm Up, Strength, and Conditioning. Each category will be its own episode and you will hear Smitty and OB program for two different clients and think through the considerations for each and give their advice on how to apply it to yourself.
Todays episode is all about how to program and progress strength training. Everyone knows “exercises,” but exercises alone are just like notes in a song. It isn’t until one has a profound knowledge of adaptation that those notes can be composed into a song.
In this episode, we attempt to elucidate some of the overcomplicated aspects of programming in order to put some of our tools into your hands.
