Based on the articles and conversations with Mark Bell I will provide a sample of what a training program may look like over a 3 week period.

Note: At Elite Performance Center we follow a nearly identical methodology with some minor deviations.

 

Week 1 will be an Underloading week followed by 2 weeks of Max Effort training.
