ACCESSORY WORK MENU
————————————————————

***ACCESSORY WORK IS JUST THAT, THE EXTRA LITTLE THINGS TO WORK ON TO BECOME BETTER AND MORE VERSATILE IN TRAINING AND BRING UP SOME OF THE POSSIBLE WEAK POINTS YOU MAY HAVE.

– MOBILITY MENU –

1. SEE “ALPHA MOBILITY GUIDE
2. FOLLOW @JOETHERAPY ON INSTAGRAM FOR MUSCLE RELEASE TECHNIQUES
3. CHECK OUT MOBILITY WOD ON YOUTUBE
4. DEFRANCO’S LIMBER 11
5. ASK COACH WHAT MOBILITY TO DO BASED ON YOUR INDIVIDUAL ISSUES/NEEDS

***ADDRESS YOUR MOBILITY ISSUES….THEY WON’T FIX THEMSELVES***

– CONDITIONING MENU – 

1. *SEARCH “HIIT” WORKOUTS (PERFORMANCE + FAT LOSS)
2. IF YOU’RE ON MANAGEMENT COACHING, ASK COACH HOW TO APPLY CARDIO/CONDITIONING TO YOUR PROGRAM. GENERALLY SPEAKING 2-3 HIIT SESSIONS WEEKLY WILL BE ADEQUATE FOR THOSE WANTING TO ADD IN SOME CONDITIONING WORK. 10-15 MINUTE SESSIONS IS ALL YOU WILL NEED.

MY PERSONAL CARDIO/CONDITIONING ROUTINE  :

NONE CURRENTLY. FOCUSING ON MOBILITY WORK AND RECOVERY AS I’M ON THE 90 DAYS TO ALPHA GRIND.

– CORE MENU –

I RECOMMEND TRAINING ABS IN 4 WEEK BLOCKS. GO HARD DURING THAT TIME WITH THEM AND KEEP IN MIND A LOT OF OUR LIFTS ON THE DAILY ARE GONNA YIELD A GOOD CORE ANYWAYS. SOMETIMES IT CAN BE BETTER TO NOT TRAIN AB SPECIFIC AT ALL. DEPENDS ON YOUR GOALS. ASK COACH IF YOU NEED GUIDANCE.

– NECK TRAINING MENU –

* IF YOU’RE SERIOUS ABOUT NECK TRAINING, GET A HEAD HARNESS
GAME CHANGER.

1. SIDE LYING LATERAL NECK FLEXION

*START EASY WITH NECK TRAINING SO YOU DON’T GET TOO SORE AND CAN’T MOVE YOUR NECK. MAYBE YOU DON’T WANT A THICK NECK, BUT IT WILL HELP WITH NOT ONLY STRENGTH, BUT ALSO SHOULDER PAIN AND KEEPING YOUR CERVCIAL REGION ALIGNED AND HEALTHY.
