- Strength Phase – this is similar to the “Mastery Phase” of P90X, it is just that additional ROM (range of motion) exercises are added of higher intensity. This phase will last between 3-6 weeks, concentrates on functional training, plyometrics, strength training and upper and lower body post-activation potentiation (PAP). You’ll feel much stronger and a suppleness feeling of the muscles at the end of this phase.
- Lastly the Performance Phase – after all the hard work done with Phase 1 and 2, you’ll find yourself, jumping higher, run faster and produce more force in every move you make. A robust look and great vibes felt at the end of this phase. Last for 3-4 weeks.
