How do I sign up?

Click through below to find out which Barbell WOD program fits your specific training goals!  Both variations of the program are available by subscription on TrainHeroic. 

Where do I start?

Anchor dates for the Bwod are open and regionals. If you intend to compete and do well at these competitions the BBwod calendar is designed to taper and peak you for success at those two events. If those events are pa priority, jump into the current cycle. If those events are not a priority for you, the most effective way to implement the program is to return to the first cycle in the program, the Jacked and Tan. To get a better idea of how the BBwod calendar and mesocycles are programmed, refer to the chart below:

What is the Barbell WOD?

The Barbell WOD is the perfect solution for structuring your strength and technical gains. Just 3 times a week with workouts that are completed in less than an hour, the Barbell WOD is a annually periodized program that takes into account YOUR calendar and fitness needs. It is designed to be undertaken alongside any other athletic pursuit or sporting activity, programmed to build the strength you need to make you faster, more explosive and perform better.

The Barbell WOD combines the metabolic conditioning of CrossFit style workouts with the most effective principles of both Olympic weightlifting and powerlifting programs and movements. It is an annually periodized plan that promotes strength in squatting, pressing, posterior chain and the core while improving muscle balance and symmetry through assistance lifts.

The Barbell WOD combines scientifically backed principles in Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, metabolic conditioning and core stabilization. It truly is the next step in programming for the ultimate athlete.  

Is the Barbell WOD right for me?

The Barbell WOD was specifically designed with the competitive fitness athlete in mind. However, the principles carry over to any kind of athlete looking to increase their performance with a structured strength program that won’t interfere with their athletic training schedule.

Are you an Olympic weightlifter who is looking to dramatically improve your competition PR’s or are you the competitive fitness athlete who is looking to add strength and stability to rival your aerobic fitness? Either way, the Barbell WOD is the program for you!

What is the difference between the Barbell WOD and the Barbell WOD plus?

The Barbell WOD is a 3-day a week program while the Barbell WOD Plus is our more advanced program.  At 5 workouts a week, the Barbell WOD Plus is a commitment that if adhered to will yield powerful results.

Can I do my metcons alongside my Barbell WOD workouts?

You can work in your metcon however you like but we suggest following our sample plan demonstrated below. (Insert graphic)

I want to workout on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday… yet the workout is scheduled for M,W,F… is this a problem?

The Barbell WOD can be adjusted to fit your schedule by maintaining the same 3 day a week spread to ensure that there is enough time in between workouts to recover.  

If the box or gym that you currently work out at has an interest in becoming a Barbell WOD Chapter, their CoachHeroic account will give them the freedom to adjust the Barbell WOD calendar to fit your gym’s schedule. If this sounds like something your box would benefit from, please contact us.
