How to Train at Home (banded workout day one and two)

Its 2020, you can't get the gym, we are here to make it work (for free) because we don't think anyone should charge for this.

 

Overall principles

  1. Weight/resistance is way less important than volume/time under tension. All work sets are to failure. We can use tempo here to our advantage.
  2. The rest is as short as possible (aim for 90 seconds). We need to accumulate fatigue
  3. Some stuff is set up in supersets, because we need to accumulate fatigue
  4. Lots of warmup tactics will make this effective for prehab and rehab

 

Set-up - 4 times per week, training at home

  1. Chest and Back
  2. Shoulders and abs
  3. Legs
  4. Arms and function day

 

The Rep Scheme

It will either be 30-8. There is no dramatic change in hypertrophy in the rep range from 6-30 - long disproven is that you need to stop at 12 reps (feel free to google)

  1. Warm up – 30 reppers
  2. Your last set should be below the rep 8-12

You are going to do a varied amount of reps, and a bunch of the volume is at a pretty low intensity – but we will accumulate a lot of work.

You need to use tempo to control failure. Go as SLOW as you need on the positive and negative to make the rep count prescribed. For instance, for 8 rep pushups - I will do 20 second down 10 second up for 8 reps - its hard.
