What does success look like?
The entire purpose of this program is to get you strong enough to RX the daily WOD’s. that have barbell movements. That’s the goal. Actually, it’s the only goal. This is done by adding on an ancillary strength program to the training that you are already doing. This program focuses on developing the following:
- Back Squats
- Front Squats
- Overhead Squats
- Push Press
- Push Jerk
- Power Snatch
The idea is that if you are proficient in these movements, you’ll be able to RX most WODs that come up. Sure, there may be some exogenous movements that come up and throw you for a loop, but by focusing on these core movements you’ll be able to RX most WODs that come up in standard programming.
As you develop through the levels and complete lessons you’ll be able to easily track your progress with your own barbell strength progress bar that goes from 0 to 100%. This provides a simple yet effective way to keep motivation levels high as you work through the program.
HD MOVEMENT VIDEOS
Not sure how to perform the proper technique for a movement? We have you covered with a full library covering all movement progressions that you’ll always have access to.
DIGITAL COURSE FORMAT
You’ll have your own username and password to access your personal digital course where you can track your progress through the levels. In addition, there is no expiration date for the course so you can access it for however long you like.
BEFORE OR AFTER WOD
The training goal for RX Barbell is to quickly and efficiently progress you to the point where scaling is no longer needed when doing barbell movements for Cross-Training WOD’s.
We use tried-and-true linear strength progressions that allow for consistent progress with compound barbell movements.
For each of the movements, you’ll be ranked as beginner, elementary, pre-intermediate, intermediate, or upper-intermediate based on your age and sex. Each movement and each strength level will have specific instructions on how to progress through that level.
We broke down each movement into 5 Levels. Each time you complete a level you gain access to the next. For example, when you reach your first strict pull-up you go from the level 1 pull-up phase to level 2.
BEFORE OR AFTER WOD
The RX Barbell Program was built to be done in addition to your current Cross-Training training. You’ll only need about 15-25 minutes before or after your class to work on your gymnastic progressions.
