Are you an intermediate who is most interested in improving conditioning vs. singularly improving strength? If yes, then this is the template for you.
Overall, this template is a practical example of how I would blend conditioning and strength training for general physical development after the novice phase. I wouldn’t run this template over and over again without some pure strength work breaking it up (with less conditioning), but I find a block like this to be a great way to mix things up for trainees with no impending competition or who are focused on weight loss.
