The next phase of their programs incorporates more plyometrics, medicine balls throws, sports specific strengthening movements and of course their weight lifting. The weight lifting is pretty unique this phase. When maxing out I found many flaws that were in everyone’s Olympic lifts. So, this next round will be more complex with lighter weights emphasizing their receiving(catching) of the weight. As for upper and lower movements, they will go as planned. This bench routine is magic and it is something I used in high school which resulted in a bench press of 440lbs at 17 years old. Their bench should go to the moon! The results for that will be posted the week of Thanksgiving. In correlation with their lifting is there sport. Most of the names you see above are high school throwers and yes, their technique and distances are improving!
