How we define strength here is essential, however. For the purposes of this program, it’s not the same thing as pulling out all of the stops to load as much weight on the bar as possible. This isn’t a powerlifting program. We don’t use your body to build particular lifts; we use particular lifts to build your best body.
This isn’t to say that your lifts won’t improve, because they absolutely will. The backbone of the CORE program is just what we use for our high school athletes who need to be strong, fast, and durable. It’s also virtually the same format that we use for middle-aged trainees who want to maintain muscle, stay fit, and keep up while playing with their kids. These types of workouts have been the bulk of head coach Noah’s training program for almost a decade. Sure, the individual exercises and variables will vary, but the main thrust is the same: real, practical strength that pays dividends outside of the gym.
CORE workouts are divided into upper and lower body sessions. Within those two broad categories, you’ll encounter a wide variety of exercise variations and techniques to keep you improving for months and years to come. You can expect to encounter rest-pause, drop sets, pauses, different tempos, isometrics, and many more techniques. But we don’t include fun stuff just because it’s interesting. It’s here because, when properly implemented, it works. And as with all P/S programs, exercise demos and additional coaching content are included.
So if you’re ready to build some serious strength and feel better than ever before, look no further than the P/S CORE program.
