Unconventional Training Basics Description:
While the Unconventional Training Basics Workout Plan is intended to give beginners a starting guideline to the "Mad Methods," anyone can use it for awesome performance gains, even advanced users. The workout plan utilizes basic movements involving kettlebells, sandbags, and bodyweight to give you overall strength, conditioning, and agility.
The program involves a 2-on, 1-off schedule, meaning that you will be weight training for two days before taking one day off. This is a good way to get started in a year-long workout program because it will give you plenty of rest while also keeping you on schedule. I've found that having more than two days off while starting a long term program can easily lead to three days off, then four days off, until you're off forever! Stick to the schedule for the best results.
