First, read the blog on Masters Basic Programming. The first thing any athlete must do is learn! That’s right, learn! My goal has never been to string you along but to educate you so that your knowledge empowers your fitness, performance, quality of life and others. Read the blog!
Also, whether you are a fitness, recreational/competitive or elite athlete. The desired outcome determines the input. Assumably, if you are an elite athlete, you’re probably not following my programming here but either I coach you directly or you have a coach.
Decide how many days per week you have to train, 3x, 4x, 5x, or more. If you are a masters athlete, training more than 5x per week can be done, but it better be done right!
Next, you will be performing 3-4 barbell lifts per week to establish a strength foundation to build on, back squat, shoulder press, deadliest, and power clean. We can also throw front squats in there.
More to come!

Eagerly awaiting your programming!June 9, 2014 at 9:14 pm #899
Athletes can continue to do their box programming this week. Our goal this week is to establish 1RM of the back squat, deadlift, shoulder press, front squat and power clean. The strength cycle will be based on the baseline pure strength values of these movements. This specific application of % loads will produce the most individualized programming for strengthening and combined with more generally applied conditioning training.
Fitness level training athletes should consider a 3-4 x week training model, competitive/recreational athletes 4-5 x week for strength training.
The number of days per week that you train will determine how many strength training sessions per week you will perform.
3 x week training every other day
Mon-BS/SP Wed-DL/FS Fri-BS/SP
4 x week training
Mon-BS/SP Tues-DL Wed-FS Thurs-Off Fri-BS/SP
5 x week training
Mon-BS/SP Tues-DL Wed-FS Thurs-Off Fri-BS/SP Sat-FS/DL
Whether an athlete decides to do 3, 4, 5 or even more days per week, the design of the training frequency can be based on athlete need for recovery and scheduling. Athletes can choose 2 on/1 off, 3 on/1 off, 4 on/2 off, 3 on/1 off-2 on/1 off, etc…
Conditioning will be performed on the same days as strength training and will be simply broken down into, Short interval met cons(SIMC), Short met cons (SMC), Longer met cons (LMC), and on occasion chipper style workouts. Met cons can be a singlet, couplet or triplet or chipper. Conditioning workouts should not affect strength recovery and if strength workout recovery is being compromised, conditioning has to be adjusted.
So, after you have read the Masters Basic Programming Blog, step 2, find your 1 RM for the movements listed above. Decide on your schedule and how strength workouts will be performed.
We will be posting on a 5 day per week schedule Mon-on, Tues-on, Wed-on, Thurs-off, Fri-on, Sat-on. But if you are a 3-4 or even 5-6 day a week athlete with a different schedule, just do the next workout for strength that is in the frequency you have chosen per week.

When you say “shoulder press”, are these strict press or push press?June 10, 2014 at 2:56 pm #903

Day 1 Masters Basic Programming 8 week cycle:
Each day of training will consists of Warm-Up(W), skill(intermittent)(Sk), Strength(S), Conditioning(C) and mobility(M) components. It’s that simple. I will program on a 5 day a week training model, 3 on 1 off, 2 on 1 off. If you do otherwise, just match the work to your schedule. See the thread above for training structure.
W-Dynamic warm-up before the WOD (adequately warm-up the target areas for training)
Sk – practice DU’s for 5 min
S – DL @ 55% of 1 RM 3×5
C – AMRAP in 2×5 min, 2 min rest between sets of thrusters 95/65 lbs 10 reps, pull-ups 10 reps
M – choose one area of mobility deficiency and perform 2-3 stretches for that area. Also do this one other time in the day.

Darin… really enjoying the workouts. I have sent some Masters from my box to your site after talking to them and working through the workouts. I had to step away from the box for 2 weeks due to a hellacious travel schedule, so your program came *just* in time for me to pick the bar back up! Thanks for the time AND the commitment
