"DANKO JONES"

 

DANKO JONES - one of my favourite artists, I will be sharing a different video each week of the fabulous Danko Jones.

This program is back to a prep cycle with a lot varied volume work on the foundational strength lifts of CF (back squat, press, deadlift, snatch and clean and jerk).  You will see alternating work of heavy, moderate, and light work on each cycle of all of these lifts in an attempt to develop multiple strength qualities simultaneously.  Max force development, muscular endurance and speed endurance are all touched on in this prep cycle. The total length of the cycle will take us right into the Monster Lift-Off (December 31).  What is the monster lift -off - it is a fun open gym day to complete max efforts on the following lifts (snatch, clean and jerk, back squat, press, deadlift, and max pull-up), its meant to be a fun max effort day with a strong focus on community and team.  Danko Jones will also have a strong focus on the gymnastics movements of the HSPU and the MU - each cycle you will focus on strength and strength endurance of these two lifts, EDT will be used along with basic sets x reps cycles.  Lastly you will have a high volume of "core" work to complete as well - 4-5x/cycle post workout "core" work will be programmed in this phase to emphasize a strong foundation.
