This 12-Week Summer Body program is designed for any guy with at least 1-2 years of consistent strength training experience (i.e., 2-3 times per week) and will be training at a Commercial Gym.
Inside the App, there is a Coaching section where you will find the following: Program Design Handbook, Nutrition Essentials Guide and a sample 7-Day Meal Plan for each 4-week phase based on your caloric needs. In the Programs section, you will find the workouts themselves (see below for details) which not only include all of the program details, but also short video clips of all of the movements, detailed exercise descriptions, coaching tips and several PDFs with Alternative Exercise Options in case you need to make some slight changes.
As for the training program itself, it is split into three, 4-week training phases in the following manner:
- Strength Training Workouts
- There is one total body, strength training workout for each phase and it should be performed three times per week on non-consecutive days (i.e., M, W, and F).
- Note: The strength training workout will change for each phase.
- The workouts should take under an hour, which includes the dynamic warm-up (i.e., Movement Preparation) and the optional, post-workout static stretching.
- Energy Systems Development Workouts
- The conditioning workouts should be performed three times per week on the non-strength training days.
- In Phase 1, there will be two days per week of medium-intensity intervals in order to develop some Aerobic Power and one day per week of lower intensity, steady-state work as a form of Aerobic Recovery.
- In Phase 2, there will be two days per week of high-intensity intervals designed to develop your Anaerobic Lactic Capacity and one day per week of low intensity, steady-state work as a form of Aerobic Recovery.
- In Phase 3, you will perform two days per week of even higher intensity intervals designed to develop your Anaerobic Lactic Power and one day per week of low intensity, steady-state work as a form of Aerobic Recovery.
- The sessions will vary in duration from 22-46 minutes, depending your current fitness level, the type of workout being performed and which week of the program you are in.
