Here is our christmas break program for the UBC baseball team. Please refer back to the previous post “Tis the Season for Size and Strength” to get the full benefit from the program with proper rest and nutrition.
We only have 2-3 weeks so keep pushing each week to do more than the previous week – if you want to keep going with this program just take an easy week during the 4th week by decreasing the volume and intensity by about 40%.
If you are not a UBC player by all means try this program out but realize that they have been coached on all of these exercises because it is imperative that any program be executed with proper technique – I will post some exercise videos in case you are not familiar with any of these exercises.
This program consists of two full body workouts coupled with an upper and lower day. The upper and lower days are to be performed on back to back days followed by one day rest then full body#1 then day off followed by full body #2 then a final day before repeating the cycle.
- Sunday – Upper
- Monday – Lower
- Tuesday – Rest
- Wednesday – Full Body #1
- Thrusday – Rest
- Friday – Full Body #2
- Saturday – Rest
