9-week Barbell Training Program to Help You Get Strong, Add Muscle, and Feel like a Total Badass in the Gym.
#BarbellBadass includes 15 full-length workouts, all 45 minutes or less, designed to help you improve your barbell skills, get stronger, and build more muscle in less time.
Each week of the 9-week training plan, the rep scheme of the main lift changes to ensure you are getting stronger week to week and adding muscle.
This 9 week, 5-days-per-week program is for beginner to intermediate lifters who are interested in powerlifting but don't have 90 minutes to commit to the gym but still want the benefits of barbell work.
Delivered via PDFs for print-and-go along with exercise demos for each movement and regressions to adjust based on fitness level.
Hi, I'm Chrissy King!
I'm a strength and nutrition coach, powerlifter, self-proclaimed truth teller, and a writer with a passion for intersectional fitness. I struggled with weight and body image for the majority of my life and spent the majority of twenties focused on shrinking – in all areas of my life. Through strength training and a series of other events, I finally broke free of obsessive habits around nutrition and exercise, developed a healthy relationship with my body, and started taking up all the damn space (#TakeUpSpace).
Now my mission to empower women to shop shrinking, take up space, create stress-free and sustainable lifestyles, feel confident and empowered in their skin, and focus their energy on creating their specific magic in the world.
I created #BarbellBadass because as much as I love powerlifting (and I really, really love it), I realize that a lot of people simple don’t have 60-90 minutes to commit to the gym four to five days a week. Besides the fact, that you simply might not want to be in the gym that much, a lot of people simply don’t have the time to be in the gym for that long. Between work, family, relationships, and social life, most people don’t want to spend 8 to 10 hours a week in the gym.
To be completely honest, you don’t need to spend that much time in the gym to get the benefits of strength training.
One of the things I really love about powerlifting is that barbell work is super fun and really empowering. Every single time I deadlift I feel like a complete badass. This program will allow you to get the benefits and enjoyment of barbell work and powerlifting without the huge time commitment. You will get stronger and put on more muscle in less time.
