Welcome to week two of the Building Blocks Series Volume 1 powered by BridgeAthletic. Each week you and your athletes will work on mastering the fundamental exercises that build elite athletic performance. Yes, these exercises will seem familiar, but without a firm understanding of the basics there is no path towards greatness.
Volume 1 consists of four exercise progressions: the pushup progression, the squat progression, the body weight pullup progression, and the advanced pullup progression. Each week a new exercise will be introduced, followed by daily variations that add complexity while building strength, power, speed, and mobility.
Exercise Progression Introduction:
This week I would like to introduce the squat. It is an integral part of any athletes development because it provides the foundation to lower-body stability, mobility and strength. We will progress from body weight exericises that focus primarily on stability and mobility towards a more advanced, strength focused barbell squat by the end of the week.
Join us on our mission to master the squat and build better athletes.
