Description

Overview:

“Foundational Strength” refers to building a solid foundation of strength, stabilization, and muscle in a “safer” rep range than max strength (aka high weight, 1-6 reps). While max strength training is great for more advanced lifters, it is important to master the neuromuscular patterns of each movement first to avoid form breakdown under heavier loads. Using unilateral strength movements will also put more focus on developing core strength and symmetry between each side of the body. The goal of each exercise in not total muscle failure. Instead focus on quality of movement and activating the right muscles. Pick a weight that you can perform all reps with but feels like an “8” on a scale of 1-10 for rate of perceived exertion . Each grouping of exercises is designed to be performed back to back for 3 rounds with very minimal rest time (10-20 seconds is fine) “e” refers to doing each side of the body for unilateral movements. Always start with your non-dominant side first as it is likely weeker.
