Variations are given to progress/regress to suit your abilities making the series suitable for all levels, with no equipment required.

BLOKstrength - Full Body Conditioning
4 classes
Build strength through tension, harness power through explosive movements and shape your physique with our BLOKstrength: Full Body Conditioning  series of classes. The four full body workouts in this series focus on strength training to support your joints, build muscle tissue, increase bone density, and promote fat loss. Each class uses a different mix of compound and explosive movements to build strength, endurance and confidence. Expect controlled compound movements like squats, deadlifts, push-ups and overhead presses; whilst a combination of explosive movements (such as sumo deadlift high pulls, snatches and thrusters) add speed and power. A mixture of up tempo and rep ranges will continue to challenge your body in every session. Every workout features a thorough mobility section and a warm-up/priming specific to the movements to come. You'll then work through sections focused on lower and upper body, progressing your strength and technique. Finally, every part has a fun 'finisher' section to work on muscular endurance, test your mental strength, and leave you with a sense of accomplishment. These workouts are suitable for all levels as movements can be modified or progressed, and weights and repetitions adjusted. Regressions are offered to suit abilities and reduce stress if needed. Each class can be done as a stand-alone workout, but we recommend you do them in order as the complexity and intensity of the movements increases as you progress through the 4 parts in this series. Ideally we suggest doing one a week, mixed with other BLOK classes like BLOKfit, BLOKcore and BLOKmove, which compliment it well.
