Today we covered nearly 2 plus hours going through the ins and outs of fat loss program design: 1️⃣ total tonnage per session 2️⃣ total ### of reps 3️⃣ total # of sets 4️⃣ exercise selection 5️⃣ rest intervals 6️⃣ # of exercises per session 7️⃣ building a 12 week block 8️⃣ determining average intensity 9️⃣ selecting appropriate repetitions 🔟 time under tension and session length The devil is in the details. All of these factors intertwine and influence one another when deciding how to plan and progress a program. Ensuring that a program appropriately builds from session to session and phase to phase is a skill that requires hard work and diligence from the coach. One thing that I always thought was missing from many of the courses I attended was the thought process that a coach puts into each of these tiny details to craft a great program. Today’s session we did just that. I broke down step by step, and we even experimented with several ideas to troubleshoot inconsistencies that could creep up if you aren’t monitoring all your clients data. These teaching sessions are always one of the highlights of my week! @therackapc #therackathleticperformancecenter #strengthsensei #robertcjacobs #charlespoliquin @jr.hough

5 months post surgery! This arm suffered a distal biceps tendon tear just before @zack__kay started working with me. I am so incredibly proud of this guy and his work ethic coming back from this surgery! 5 months of no non-sense bull shit free, balls to the wall training, and this is what you get! We have used several awesome tools like the @bandbell bars and the @tsunamibarbell bars! Incredibly valuable tools for your tool box! @therackapc #therackathleticperformancecenter #robertcjacobs #strengthsensei #charlespoliquin #biceps #armday

Single Arm Barbell Scott Curls. First time doing these since 2011. Brutal, but worth every second. This phase I’m using them in my PM arm session, in homage to the Boss (CP) Trying to make the old man proud. 8x2-3; 80X0. #strengthsensei #charlespoliquin #therackathleticperformancecenter #gainzunitatl #robertcjacobs @therackapc

This past week @jr.hough and I spent a full 2 hour session discussing the history of Vertical Intrgration, Conjugate, Westside (NOT the same as Conjugate!), how and when to use Jumps in a program and all things energy systems! Time flies by during these sessions! #strengthsensei #charlespoliquin #therackathleticperformancecenter #gainzunitatl #robertcjacobs @therackapc

Had a great training partner today! Jordan was kind enough to work on this janky shoulder of mine with his F.A.T. Tool and soft tissue skills. @jordanclarke.ak thank you brother! #strengthsensei #charlespoliquin #therackathleticperformancecenter #gainzunitatl #robertcjacobs #fearthemoose

Boom! 120kg for 3. Hit my goal. 18kg improvement from last year. Looks far less terrifying on the video than it felt in real life 😩 #strengthsensei #charlespoliquin #therackathleticperformancecenter #gainzunitatl #robertcjacobs #emaxx @bandbell
