The dog days of Summer Swolstice
Is it weird that I’m linking to an article that’s linking to another article? Does it feel like some sort of Inception, or, Fitception, if you will?
Sorry, that was awful. It just sounded really funny in my head, so I had to type it.
Anyway, they guys over at CrossFit Impulse have devised a strength program based on advanced German volume training. Not familiar with regular German volume training? Click here. For those looking for a shorter explanation, it’s essentially supersets of 10 sets of 10 reps (or 6 reps for lower-body exercises) at the same weight, with minimal rest between sets. Yep, tough doesn’t even begin to describe this kind of training.
The guys at CrossFit Impulse decided to give German Volume Training a shot, but weren’t all that happy with the results. So, they started looking at more advanced versions of the training and came up with a 10-week strength training program they’re calling “Summer Swolstice”. Check it out here. In addition to designing the program, they’ve also created an easy-to-use template to help you along the way, should you decide to give it a shot.
Check it out.
