Accessory work: This is any type of movement that will get the body primed and ready for exercise. Some accessory exercises include glute bridges, DB rows etc.
Weightlifting: Now that the muscles are primed and ready for overload, we will start working on the specific exercise of the day. Each day we hit a specific exercise to perfect the movement and progress further in range of motion, technique and complexity. Some examples of weightlifting exercises are Snatch, Clean and Jerk.
Conditioning: The last component to any great workout is a conditioning session. Using the core weightlifting exercise we just learned, combined with progressive or supplementary exercises we will move into a circuit style routine to promote advancements in strength and conditioning.
The compound movements will serve as your foundation of strength – enabling progression and strength, while the supplemental exercises will assist in greater range of motion, workout deficiencies and lower rates of injury.
Weightlifting is all about form and function. The two work together to create powerful, progressive and heavy lifts.
