“Of Course it’s hard, it’s supposed to be hard, if it was easy, everyone would do it, HARD is what makes it great.”
Have you ever asked yourself “Why do ForeverStrong clients have such great success with increasing functional strength and improving functional mobility?”
It’s because of the ForeverStrong Training Method!
The ForeverStrong Training Method is nothing like anything you have experienced before and that’s exactly why you need it.
For eight weeks give this program everything you’ve got and you’ll be well on your way to new strength and muscular development as well as functional mobility. Other benefits of the ForeverStrong training method is the fact that it will not bulk you up, it creates lean muscularity, and increases your metabolism.
ForeverStrong clients get amazing results with each eight week program cycle utilizing progressive strength training focused on the full-body-five method. This method uses periodized cycles and progressive goals. Each eight week program focuses on a different area of the body.
In this article, we will reveal the results of our last eight week program cycle!
A Posterior Focus
Our last program cycle focused on the posterior chain (calves, hamstrings, low back, traps, and posterior deltoid).
Each client’s program consisted of movements that included:
- Upper body push (pushup),
- Upper body pull (row),
- Lower body pull (hinge),
- Lower body push (lunge/squat),
- Tension drill or carry (suitcase walk or plank).
Each movement or its modification was incorporated into a personalized training plan. At each training session the client focused on a number of movements to perform that day. Each client’s program was personalized to his/her goals and the sets and reps were determined based on those goals. The reps progressively increasing over the eight week period.
For the last program, ForeverStrong utilized the drop set method. Drop sets is a technique for continuing an exercise with a lower weight once muscle failure has been achieved at a higher weight.
” The daily workouts change and don’t get boring” Patty never felt bored
Liz really liked the “Personalized workouts geared to my weaknesses and areas needing most improvement. Great Stuff!
Burning the Fat
Another integral part of the ForeverStrong training method is the High Intensity Finisher or High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) component. HIIT is considered to be much more effective than normal cardio because the intensity is higher. You are able to increase both your aerobic and anaerobic endurance while burning more fat.
At ForeverStrong our HIIT Finishers are fun!
We combine many short bursts of cardio exercise with short rests. Our cardio includes anything from battle ropes to running on a treadmill. All of this is done in a small group with everyone working for a common goal – Let’s knock this out of the park!
“Diversity of the finisher made it challenging” stated Joanne
Our clients love our eight week program cycles and the specific focus of each! Because of the ForeverStrong training method, clients see results.
For the eight week cycle that focused on the posterior chain, our clients had an overall strength increase of 131%. We determined the increase percentage by strength testing (number of reps) of specified movements at the beginning of the program. We then retest that same movements with the same weight at the end of the program to see the increased number of reps. From there we determine the percent increase.
However, clients not only saw percent increases in strength, they saw increases in load (weight) throughout the program cycle, ability to move from a modified movement to the full movement, and doing movements without any assistance such as a plyo box, riser, or bench.
“I felt a sense of accomplishment & strength as the program progressed” commented Rick
