Plan Description

This is a 6 week plan to develop maximum strength before starting higher intensity work on the water. The phase combines low-intensity base cardio, with a building pyramid of strength work. It includes 4x a week weight work! There are 2 build weeks for every recovery week. At the end, you test your new maximum loads. If you cannot get to all of the cardio workouts, then follow just the strength components in your winter training.
