FUNDAMENTALS: PHASE 1
The following program is an introduction to creating stability. The main objective is to begin to create stability in the hips, scapulae, and spine. Creating stability in these three areas will lay the foundation for subsequent exercises and moves. By learning to stabilize the hips, scapula, and spine we can greatly reduce our risk of injury while drastically increasing the amount of output we can produce. More risk-free output equals more results.
In this program, we will rely heavily on machines and exercises with external stabilizing factors in order to focus on the most fundamental aspects of stability. In phases 2 and 3 we will move into more and more self-stabilizing exercises as we progress.
Seasoned lifters will also benefit greatly from this program. Because of the external stability aspect, target muscles will have the ability to do the most work especially if one is already pretty familiar with form.
NOTE: TAKE MEASUREMENTS AND PICTURES
If you have not taken measurements or pictures, do so. This style of training produces rapid results. If you don’t take them, you’re going to wish you had.
