Historically, our coaching and programming services have been limited to a “1-on-1” arrangement, with the coach interacting directly with the lifter over the long term, managing their individualized training and form checks on a daily or weekly basis.
As our operations have grown, demand has increased dramatically- a good thing to be sure 🙂 However, 1-on-1 coaching or stand alone templates may not always be the best fit for everyone and lots of people are still in need of assistance with post-novice programming approaches for various performance goals. For that reason, we have worked to offer people more options.
Imagine a continuum of coaching with the Barbell Medicine Templates on one end and 1-on-1 coaching on the other. The templates are a set of 4, 8-, and 12-week programming templates designed for various goals that have already become extremely popular and widely utilized, These are the lowest cost and most accessible option, but are short-term options and do not come with regular contact, technique feedback, or individualization by a coach.
On the other end is 1-on-1 coaching where the programming is highly individualized (typically with nutrition guidance) and there is frequent interactions with your coach, form checks, feedback, etc.
In the middle of these two options, we aim to “Bridge” the gap between the Templates and 1-on-1 coaching with Group Programming, an option that offers long-term programming in a group setting at relatively low cost, with regular contact through with the coaching staff for form checks, guidance, and general Q&A along the way.
There are three groups that we will place Group Programming members into based on the information in their questionnaires, which you will receive a link to with your purchase receipt. Training will be delivered via email each month and billing will be automatically drafted monthly. You can cancel at any time.
Group 1: Early Intermediate The Early Intermediate group is designed for folks just coming off of their Novice Linear Progression, The Bridge, or similar. The focus of this group will be continuing to develop strength, work capacity, and technique refinement for our newer trainees.
Group 2: Power Building The Power Building group is aimed at intermediate to advanced trainees whose goals are fairly evenly split between strength and hypertrophy. This program has more “bodybuilding-type” training and conditioning to complement it’s good base of strength programming.
Group 3: Competitive Powerlifting Like the title suggests, this group is designed for those who will be going to a powerlifting meet. Most of the training will revolve around developing absolute strength as it pertains to the competition lifts with less time dedicated to conditioning, bodybuilding, and non specific training.
