The Ground-Zero program is designed for athletes who have no history of training and who are looking to get started on an easy-to-follow program which can be performed at their own pace. It includes basic lifts and techniques using equipment which can be found in most gyms. It's focused around building strength and developing your energy systems.
The format is set out so that you can train everyday or spread them out to make sure you can recover prior to the next session. You will need to perform 1 rep-max testing on most of your lifts because the prescribed weights are a % of your 1RM. We recommend you consult your nearest physical training professional on learning the correct movements and techniques.
The program pack includes: i) Suggested warm-ups; ii) the program; iii) a training journal; iv) a list of No-gear Workouts; v) the list of required equipment; and vi) a list of acronyms and abbreviations used in the program.
