Massive congratulations goes out to our very own MVMNT member, Matt Wilson!!!! Matt won an Eisner Award this weekend at Comic Con in San Diego! Seem like NBD?? Eisner’s are the Oscars of the comic book industry and Matt will literally go down in history.

Just giving an acceptance speech…..

We had a fun week of easy cardio, now back to the real work of developing strength and work capacity.
This four week “Functional Hypertrophy” cycle is designed to increase muscle endurance and size while maintaining strength. We are stepping back a bit from Olympic lifting AND Powerlifting. The core lifts of this cycle are Front Squat, Bench Press, Romanian Deadlift, and Weighted Pull-up. Strength training sets will be circuits of at least 2 exercises with a mandatory rest period between each movement. In the conditioning workouts there will be plenty of Power Cleans and Push Presses and other barbell lifts to round out the training repertoire. Heavy lifting days will be Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; and long metabolic conditioning on Wednesday and Saturday.
