Improve your upper body pressing and deadlift strength

The current cycle is prioritising Squatting and upper body pulling (pull-ups, rope climbs, muscle-ups). Now it is time to switch into Pressing and deadlifting.

If you have issues with strict handstand pushups, handstand walking or always fell short on deadlifting this is a block for you.

We will prioritise “Bend n push” over “Squat n pull” but we sure will maintain the squat n pull so you do not lose that precious strength that you built up in this cycle, we just switch priority.

What to expect

First priority

  • Lots of shoulder pressing
  • Handstand walk progressions
  • Handstand pushup progressions
  • Deadlifts and power variations
  • Lots of Dumbbell and Kettlebell exercises as assistance

Second priority

  • Upper body pulling strength in general
  • Muscle-up and pull-up progressions
  • Squatting both single legged and regular

Always a priority

  • Weightlifting
  • Aerobic capacity
  • Gymnastic skill development

This new block starts at May 13th. Head over to relentlessmethod.com and make sure that you jack those delts and erectors over the course of six weeks.
