The long awaited follow up to Program.One and pre-requisite to Triphasic.Two is now live and ready for you to get started!
Program.Two is a complete, 4 phase 12-14 week intermediate level strength & power development program. It is appropriate for the majority of athletes who have already completed Program.Zero and Program.One and are dedicated to going to the next level of athletic development. Coming off the uni-lateral based programming of Program.One you’ve taken the necessary time to build unilateral strength, power and symmetry. Now you are ready to take on heavier loads with this style of bilateral focused programming. Taking on higher levels of load and building your strength serves as the prerequisite foundation needed to start into your Triphasic journey. A great sequence of programming is Program.One for symmetry and unilateral SP, Program.Two to train your body to take on higher levels of load then Triphasic.Two to adapt to advanced training methods and continue earn that edge of over your competition.
The program has been refined over years of in the trenches practionership with our MP Athletes. The program went through its final official test run during the Boracay Dragons 2017 WCBU training preparations at MP Boracay. Check out some of the training highlights here!
Program.Two Periodization Style
You’ll journey through 4 phases of programming each phase building the necessary qualities needed to prepare you for the following phase. In Phase 1 Slow Strength you will build awareness through a focus of eccentric and isometric movements to ensure activation of proper muscles and execution of movements in alignment with our cues. Phase 2 Hypertrophy you will build capacity under load. You may gain a bit of muscle mass and that is OK! Many of you need more muscle mass but for those that feel the mass can slow you down you’ll feel confident in knowing that an increase in the cross-sectional area of the muscle improves the ability to develop strength. Therefore, you’ll use this increase in muscle mass and capacity under load to convert your adaptations into Strength in Phase 3. As you complete your strength phase you’ll are ready to reap the rewards of this your hard work with Phase 4, Conversion to Power! You will continue to get Strong in Phase 4 however the focus will shift to moving weights faster and performing higher level plyometrics. For those with only a 12-16 week off-season Phase 4 can be used as an in-season style peaking phase or can be a great way to transition into In-Season.One programming. gains in phase 3. If you do gain significant muscle mass you will have plenty of time to trim down as you work through phases 3 & 4 which will not elicit significant hypertrophy.
