Frequently Asked Questions

What are the goals of this program?
Build a new or build on top of a foundation of strength through consistent low impact functional body weight and strength training Increase awareness of the flexion and extension in your joints from head to toe Create a deeper connection to your nervous system so you can learn how to get comfortable being uncomfortable while training Improve posture Improve mental clarity and focus
How to schedule the program into a week?
Do days 1 and 2 back to back. After a rest/active recovery day complete days 3 and 4 back to back. Let the body recover with low impact active movement in the mobility section for two days before getting back into the next week of sessions.
How to get the best outcome of the program?
With weights that regress and progress you’ll be able to provide the strain to your body it needs over time to feel internal and external change within this program. If you’re using the same weights, just make sure to have INTENTION with all movement. At the end of the day we ALL need a solid mindset to attack each and every session :)
What do I need to participate in this program?
I recommend having access to free weights, ideally a few pairs of dumbbells that are useful for smaller muscle groups and a pair for larger muscle groups. Again this is “ideal” not mandatory. Heres a list of at home items to use as a substitute for free weights: -A backpack with books in it -Detergent bottles - juice jug -Use wine bottles -Pillows -Chairs -Towels -Couch
Who are these workouts for (skill-level)?
These are for everyone! Modify if you need to when you see fit but this is meant to be a program anyone can do! No one should neglect the basics of functional strength training the #GetWright way!
Recommended weights
Medium/heavy size weights You decide what that means, we are all different. If a set has 12 reps, you should be feeling some good stress happening around the 9th and 10 rep. That’s the type of weight you’ll need :). No sweat if not, use your body weight or recommended household items to substitute
