Wendler Classic, Anchor

Strength and Conditioning

3 weeks / 2 days per week

The Wendler Classic is a strength training program that focuses on the four major lifts: squat, bench press, deadlift, and overhead press. It's a variation of the 5/3/1 program that uses a lower training max and a slower progression to allow for more time to build strength and perfect technique. Wendler Classic is a good option for intermediate lifters who have already built a solid foundation of strength and are looking to continue making progress in their lifts while also focusing on improving their form and technique.
