World's Toughest Mudder Training Volume 3

Well, here we go again! Some things have changed since Volume 2 of my training schedule.

Phase 1 - Hypertrophy/Strength

Phase 1 will be all about gaining some size and strength, not to mention putting on some weight! I will be doing a LOT of training over the next couple of months, so I will want to up my weight a bit before it (naturally) starts to fall back down again.

*Strength Routine
This will consist of 3 compound exercises, done "5x5" (5 sets of 5 repetitions). This will include: Squats, Bench Press, and Barbell Row
 
Phase 2 - Performance
As the title implies, this phase will be all about taking my size/strength gains from Phase 1 and transitioning my muscles to perform better. This means making them less injury-prone, as well as increasing their endurance capabilities. Recovery time is just as important as training time here, as I want to allow my body full recovery after each intense training session!
