Summary

Includes Structured Workouts

Structured Workouts automatically sync with compatible devices and guide you through workouts in real time.


Learn More about Structured Workouts.

The purpose of this phase is to improve the ability to lift heavy loads.
Only some exercises are done in maximum strength routine (check in the description of the exercises).

During the early part of this phase endurance performance will suffer as the legs may feel heavy. This is a temporary setback that will fade away as you adapt to heavier loads.
