What does the PPG Strength Sports Program Involve?

The process for entry into the PPG Strength Sports program depends on your level of experience.

For the complete novice:  Programming is always specific to the individual and a preliminary assessment of your strengths and weaknesses will dictate the type of program you will follow.

The first, most crucial task is to achieve technical mastery and a decent level of strength in the basics: squat, deadlift, bench press and overhead press.

For the strongman enthusiasts technique coaching in the Strongman specific events is introduced as and when the coaches feel you are ready but usually begins early on in the process.

For the More experienced strength athlete: We have a variety of options available to those with some experience of strength training, from fully coached programs and nutritional support to custom programming without instruction.

 Novices are encouraged to join the more experienced lifters in team training sessions where they can pick up valuable hints and tips.
