Stength and power where it counts
Deadlift, bench, and squat. Oh my!
Launching a 10-week cycle: VashonStrong Power with Coach Lucas.
M/W/F @ 6:45pm
Starting September 13
A little more about the program
The program is unique to Vashon Strong and is designed by NCFIT. It is intended to help members of our functional fitness community build toward their strength goals. The VS-Power program takes three definitions of strength into consideration, and we will help athletes reach their potential in all three…
1. Increase your contractile potential: At a physiological level…you will get ‘stronger’.
2. Increase your functional capacity: From a work standpoint…you will accomplish things you’ve never accomplished previously.
3. Illicit a biological response: From increased time under tension, hormone-wise, you will enjoy the benefits of strength training.
The programming will be based around a combination of time-tested principles of traditional powerlifting (squat, press, dead), conjugate/Westside method (mix of max-effort and dynamic efforts), bodybuilding (hypertrophy and accessory work), and a few of our other favorite elements (odd objects, heavy holds, overloaded bodyweight movements, etc). If nothing else, this program will be a heck of a lot of fun!
The cadence for the course is Monday Backsquats, Wednesday Bench, and Friday Deadlift. If you simply want to put in some extra time on building one movement, this is a great opportunity , and you can simply attend on the days that make sense for you.
"Improving your squat and deadlift will help you with nearly every exercise in a WOD. Fly through your box jumps, get the next heavier kettlebell, even rowing will start to seem easier. This is in addition to the awesome feeling of smashing PR´s in your Back Squat, Front Squat, and Deadlift. And with the help of a strong Bench Press, your pull-ups, T2B, and overhead presses will also improve."
