Frequently Asked Questions


I just joined my local box, are the Barbell WOD programs designed to be stand alone programs or can I also include Metcon's and Gymnastic/Skill work within my training week as well?

The Barbell WOD programs are both designed for those competing as fitness athletes, and each Mesocycle is built to be done in conjunction with Metcon and Gymnastic/Skill work prescribed by your box or on your own.


What is the difference between the Barbell WOD and the Barbell WOD Plus Programs?

The Barbell WOD - Expect three (3) Strength Workouts per week built into an annual program designed to build bigger, faster, stronger athletes.

The Barbell WOD Plus - Expect five (5) Strength Workouts per week built into an annual program periodized to peak athletes for the highest level of competition.


When should I test new 1RM's?

You are always encouraged to test a new 1RM across any lift, especially if you feel that your current 1RM's are not true to your current strength levels. As the programming progresses over the course of a year, there will be organic opportunities to test along the way.  


Is there a long-term contract?

No contracts, you can cancel anytime.
