The following program was designed to help members supplement their daily WODs with additional skill and strength based work. The program includes olympic weightlifting, basic barbell strength, body weight push/pull skill work, along with posterior/anterior core drills and additional sprint based cardio. All additional work has been provided to help members of all skill levels to improve their WOD times over the course of the next year through additional strengthening exercises and skill improvement. The program was meant to be performed after a WOD or during dedicated open gym sessions. For athletes of all levels, the program is a great resource to be used at least 2-3 times per week. For higher level athletes the program is designed to be used the full 5 times per week on top of normal WODs. The goal of the program is to perfect movement patterns in complex strength and power exercises. Focusing on perfect technique is crucial and many times more important that the amount of weight being used. Ideally the athlete will perform all days prescribed in the program for the most balanced results. The program is the building blocks for improving strength and work capacity that will lead into the next program and propel any athlete to a higher level than they currently are.
