This Strength Training Program is developed with the concept and knowledge of cutting edge training principles needed to stimulate muscle growth and condition the body. Volume and intensity changes, rest period manipulations, supersetting, drop sets, contraction speed variations, they’re all built in here! The key to success is not only knowing what to do but when and how to do it. This is where the concepts of Periodization and Individualization come into play. Not everyone can handle the same quantities of muscle work. The sets, repetitions, exercise prescription, and actual weight in the Strength Conditioning Program is based off your accurate fitness assessments and specific strength to body weight ratio’s. This takes the guesswork out of not knowing what to do and ultimately lead you to well earned Strength & Conditioning results!
Be sure to consult with your physician before starting any exercise program.
Q: Is the Fitastic Strength Training Program for me?
A: If your goal is to obtain lean quality muscle while enhancing your overall strength, then YES the Strength Training Program is ideal for you.
Q: What equipment will I need to successfully perform the Program?
A: A gym setting will be required to perform the workouts in the Strength Training Program. A gym or studio will have most all the equipment and tools necessary to complete the designated built in routines.
Q: How much time should I expect to set aside for these workouts?
A: The Strength Training program is designed with “easy” up to “very hard” workout weeks varying intensity and volume intentionally through the concept of Periodization, thus varying the duration of each week. You can expect to spent as little as 45 minutes and up to 2 hours (on the hardest weeks) per routine.
Q: What if I don’t have the time to put into the longer routines?
A: When you come across the longer duration weeks and your schedule doesn’t allow the time, you can make personal adjustments to the routine by trimming out the single joint or smaller muscle movements. Omit the least amount of exercises to fit your progressive program into your busy schedule. Ideally you should perform all movements under the specified direction as often as you can for optimal results. There is an Express Strength Training program designed for those on a consistently tighter and limited schedule.
Q: What if the weight prescribed is too heavy and I can’t complete the set?
A: No Problem, there could be two answer for this. However, if it comes down to you coming short of a repetition or two based on muscle fatigue, suck it up and force those final reps for maximum failure!
1.) Your determined weight for each exercise is strategically calculated per your Strength Test set up. The Strength Tests are formulated from multi-joint movements and give the best indicators to how the strength of all your muscles are activated. Assuming your Strength Tests are accurate and the weight is too heavy per a weakened range of motion from a specific muscle group, perform the most repetitions at the weight given with proper form and make a note of it for the preceding sets. For future sets, start by reducing the weight by 5 to 10 pound increments, until the modified weight falls in line with the repetition recommendation.
2.) As with all variety of exercise equipment, no two machine manufacturers are alike. Exercise equipment has various levers, pulley systems, weight distribution, and age. These variables may play a role in how the actual weight comes off the end of a cable and resistance to your muscle. It’s also a good idea to assure you’re using manufactured equipment that uses POUNDS and not KILOGRAMS, as some do. For prescribed weight that is “too heavy”, again start by reducing the weight in 5 to 10 pound increments, until the modified weight falls in line with the repetition recommendation.
Q: Do I need to perform the exercises in the order given within the Program?
A: YES, each exercise selection is strategically placed to allow the designed Periodization to develop within all movements, sets, rest and tempo. If it’s a specific exercise that doesn’t fit your fancy per an injury or ailment, you have the option to substitute that exercise to accommodate your distinct needs.
Q: When Substituting an exercise, how do I know which exercise is right for me?
A: Not all exercises are appropriate for everybody, that’s why Fitastic has this custom built in feature.
When selecting a substitution exercise, you will have options that derive from the primary muscle groups associated to the original exercise. Play each video and read the detailed description attached for each replacement exercise to determine which movement is right for you.
Q: How long do I need to commit to the Fitastic Strength Training Program?
A: There is no maximum amount of time that you need to commit to the Strength Training Program, you can cancel anytime.
Q: Can I switch to another Fitastic Program to change up my routine?
A: You can switch your program at anytime by canceling out your current program and enroll into any of the other custom built programs you choose: Adipose Incineration and Metabolic Toning are the two most popular routines coming off the Strength Training Program. All of your Strength Testings will be automatically saved in your Profile for your convenience and ease of transition. NOTE: YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO HAVE MORE THAN ONE PROGRAM AT A GIVEN TIME.
