Program Design: 8 Week Cycle
Students begin the course by learning how to operate each piece of equipment. We begin exercising on our Precor machine lifts until the students are ready to advance to free weight movements.
Dead Lift (Hex Bar or Straight Bar depending on their skill level)
The fist week is a test week to see where each students strength abilities are in their 1 Rep Max. This will place them on a percentage chart for the program starting in week 2. Each student will perform their 1 Rep Max for each core lift listed above.
This will begin the actual program phase and exercise routines for the next eight weeks. At the end of the eight week cycle students will then re-test on their 1 Rep Max. Once they have tested in each core lift, they will be given new percentages based upon their results.
Daily grading procedure is based upon studetns being appropriately dressed for class and actively engaging in the exercise routine for the day.
Proper attire consist of athletic shorts to the knees, sneakers, and T-shirt with sleeves.
Participation is engaging in the activity for the full class period and registering results based upon the percentage chart started in Week 2
