How To Add Sprints & Jumps Into Lift Like A Man

Hey Joe, the other day I came across your website, after watching a video on youtube with you and Zach Even-Esh and saw you offered a program “Lift like a man.” Its got me pumped up and I love how its all about the basics because that’s my type of philosophy when it comes to training. I just wanted to ask you a question about the program before I go ahead an buy it. I was wondering if you incorporate sprinting and jumping into the program? Awesome website and thanks for your time. -Danny

Hey Danny, thanks for your email man, I appreciate the kind words. Onto your question…I did not include much sprinting or jumping into the program BUT you can absolutely add this in. It all depends on what your goals are. I created the ‘Lift Like A Man’ program for guys out there who want to focus on performance, strength and building mental toughness. The program consists of 3 workouts a week and are a blend of barbell, dumbbell and bodyweight exercises with a unique finisher at the end of each workout.

So while there is no sprinting in it and just a few workouts with jumps in it, you can certainly add those into your training . If your goal is to add in sprinting and jumping in chances are you are an athlete that wants to become more explosive.  If this is the case, I would add in 2 sprint workouts a week. When you do these workouts just make sure your legs are fresh and good to go.

If speed and power is your goal, remember that you will get faster and more explosive when you get stronger. When you gain strength, you will have a better foundation to run on and also have more horsepower in the tank. The more horsepower you have, the more potential you have to run faster.

Improving your body composition is also important for getting faster. How many Olympic sprinters carry extra body fat on them? 0…They are all ripped to the bone and this isn’t by accident. In order to run faster, you need to improve relative body strength. Aside from getting great at bodyweight exercises, another good way to improve relative body strength is to drop fat.

What about jumps? Pick any jump exercise and add it in before your main lift on the deadlift and squat days. Do 3-5 reps per set and anywhere from 3-6 sets.

Let’s say your goal isn’t improving speed and power but instead it’s fat loss. Add in sprints 2-3 days a week on off days. I would highly recommend you do hill sprints because they are less taxing on the body which means a faster recovery. In addition to doing this, you  should follow ‘The Rapid Road To Getting Ripped’ which comes with ‘Lift Like A Man’. This nutrition plan will get you ripped quickly.

Danny, thanks again for your question brother, hopefully this answered it. Let me know how you like ‘Lift Like A Man’.
