So Fit 2021.1
Another 12-week program to start the new year off right! Perfect for all levels. Whether you're new to fitness, getting your fitness back, or just looking to change things up, this program is for you. Each workout has a warm up, strength session, and conditioning session which is the way I like to train, build & maintain lean body mass and burn fat. Love ya guys! Cheers -Derek
This program was intended to be possible at a "normal" gym.
The required equipment is: Treadmill, Squat Rack, Barbell (w/ weights), Dumbbells/Kettlebells, Bench (adjustable preferred, especially if you don’t have access to a cable machine), Pull Up Bar, Jump Rope
Not necessary, but nice to have additional equipment: Plyo Box (can use the bench), Rings/TRX Straps, Rower (substitute is 500m rowing = 400m/ ¼ mile run, 20 calorie row = 200m/ 1/8 mile run), Cable Machine (can be substituted with dumbbells, if necessary), Assault Bike/any bike that tracks calories, Ez-Bar can be substituted with a normal barbell
What ya get:
Your next 12 weeks of strength and conditioning are planned out FOR YOU in advance. There are 11 weeks of training and a test week at the end to see how you've improved!
After you purchase the program, you’ll be sent a link via e-mail to download your files. You get a .pdf to print out and write on (if that’s what you’re into) and 12 .jpgs to put on your phone so that you have that week's workouts where you need them in the gym. Save those to your camera roll and get to work! There is also a file that translates some of the acronyms we use.
Been a powerlifter my whole life and this program was a good change. I'm a firefighter and most of the firefighter world believes CrossFit is the answer and I fucking hate it. A lot of them have no strength. This program uses strength lifts so you stay strong and has a little CrossFit in the conditioning portion to keep up on Cardio. In other words best of both worlds. Your not gonna turn into a shrimp dick but your going to get strong (or stay strong) and get into good shape. I see people not liking there aren't percentages for the lifts. I guess I just know what weights I can do for what rep scheme. You can definitely take it easier if you want (wouldn't recommend) or you can pick a weight that you know will be heavy and push yourself through the workout (recommend). Like I said before this program is best of both worlds and I've gotten some guys to buy it and they love it as well. Great program! Stay Strong!
Helping me become less of a b****. Thank Oden.
Highly recommend this program if you’re into Olympic lifting and hiit and just about everything in between, cause it’s got it all. I only just started week 3, but if this doesn’t get me in shape, nothing will
Nice mixup of strength and cardio. Good stuff. Seeing immediate results. Semper Fi!
Derek, thank you for providing overall great programming at a very reasonable cost. Post COVID shutdown & then, my CrossFit gym shutdown, I had start my own programming. Just as I was completing that cycle, a friend suggested "So Fit". So Fit programming continued to keep me on track & focused without having to spend extra time to program my own workouts. I had to adjust few workouts to fit the equipment I have; but, overall I like that this program combines traditional lifting w/METCON and core. I used Derek's core program combined w/another one on alternate days. Apart from this program, I tried to run 3 days a week as my work schedule allowed.
**Note to ladies in my perimenopause age group (LoL): I was getting bummed to see no weight change on the scale; so, I focused my energy into building muscle instead :) This program kept me motivated as I started lifting heavier; resulting in seeing more muscle definition. I look forward to starting So Fit 2021.2. Cheers.
