Awaken Training Series 2.1, newly updated for the July 2019 cycle, is the next step for participants who have been along for the journey of the past three months and want to continue to love your training. (If you are not in this group please start with 1.1 over here.) Functional bodybuilding can be a year-round base for training and supports health, strength, and performance. It builds transferable strength to the more dynamic movements found in other training methods and functional fitness programs. For a growing portion of the population, it serves as a way to train the way we love, functionally, while maintaining longevity and avoiding burnout.
Here’s what you will see in the 2.1 program:
You’ve sweated out lots of reps and lots of sets of foundational movements, intensifying toward the end – classic periodization. Now it’s time to reset and return to the beginning principles within a new cycle. This is critical for athletic development within training to avoid over stressing your body and give it a chance to heal and adapt.
In 2.1, you’ll see different movement patterns on different days of the week and a focus on incorporating patterns that didn’t get a lot of attention in 1.1. Time to hit that Front Squat! The body part pairings will also change on several days of the week, and the conditioning pieces will have a slightly different look to them but will still be challenging and fun (it’s ok to admit it – we know you love the Assault Bike in that weird twisted way). You’ll be developing the conditioning skills you’ve built in the 1.1 program and trying them out in new conditioning scenarios.
2.1 will continue your Olympic lifting development with the Snatch as well as lots of work with the barbell overhead to get you comfortable and strong. As before, you’ll get a mix of complexes, pauses, and training approaches that are slightly different than simply hitting the traditional lifts. We’re all about giving you touches on traditional movement patterns (push, pull, bend, and squat) in non-traditional ways. This allows you to develop awareness, activate and awaken muscles that may have been asleep, and be beginners again.
Since the original program, 2.1 has been updated with the latest Functional Bodybuilding progressions to rethink the way you warm up, strengthen, and condition progressively week by week. We are doing research all the time on exciting new ways to challenge ourselves through Functional Bodybuilding. As we uncover new movements we incorporate them into the Awaken Training Series programs. Be on the lookout for some new moves and revisiting some of the classics from your previous ATS experience.
As with 1.1, we’ll share answers to questions with the group on the website. You will continue to get programming and videos through TrueCoach, including warm ups and rest day homework and inspiration to keep you tuned in to your “why.” We are so proud of all the 1.1 participants and can’t wait to train with you for the next three months.
