With gyms closing all over due to COVID-19, and athletes not having training facilities at their disposal, we are providing the following 3-day program for those with access to little or no equipment. The workout addresses Speed and Power, the two training residuals that dissipate the quickest (7-14 days).
FYI, don’t get too crazy worrying about max strength losses at this time, you’ve got approximately 30 days before they start to fall off. Hopefully this will help manage training residuals until all systems are “go” again.
The following full body programs should be performed 3 days per week with rest in between. Stay safe everyone and see ya’ in the gym soon…
