Developed by 6x CrossFit Games athlete Marcus Filly, the Base Camp eBook offers a proven, non-boring program for building foundational strength, spaced out over 8 weeks of workouts (60 minute sessions, 3x per week). There are 3 versions of the program (all included) that are interchangeable based on the equipment you have available for loading: (1) barbell/plates and dumbbells or kettlebells, (2) DBs only, or (3) KBs only. You’ll also need a box or bench, a pull-up bar, dip bar or rings, and a couple bands.
“Designing a strength program that’s effective and also varied enough to be interesting is harder than it sounds,” Filly says. “So how about a way to put on muscle that won’t require endless podcasts to distract you from how much you’d rather be home eating popcorn?”
All workouts include warm-up, strength, and conditioning, with specific instructions. Strength training is pieced out to tackle a full range of movement patterns – bend, push, pull, squat, etc. – instead of leg day or chest day. The workouts are structured to keep your session challenging while avoiding overtaxing any one part of your body. Demo videos are available for every movement. Simply click the name of each movement to open the video on YouTube.
