New Training Program

For the past few weeks, I haven't been following any set program or tracking my workouts in my log. I've been doing some lower volume, full body workouts since my mom has been in the hospital, and I don't have a lot of time to spend in the gym.  I'm excited though to get back on a program and back to trying to progress on my weights!

Today I'm starting a 16 week program by Jason Ferruggia, called "Uncaged". It is pretty similar to the upper/lower split I've been following, with just a little less volume. It will be a nice change to have something to follow instead of coming up with my own workouts!

I love that it has a mix of heavy lifts, gymnastics skills, and also a conditioning day with sled pushes. It is periodized so that the sets and reps change each week, and you eventually work up to your RM(5,4,3, and then 2 rep max).

The first month will look like this:

1) 1 Arm Dumbbell Snatch

2a) Push Press

2b) Parallel Grip Chin Up

3a) Close Grip Bench Press

3b) Front Lever Hold

4) Handstand Hold

1) Standing Vertical Jump

2) Back Squat

3) Deadlift

4) 1 Leg Bench Squat

5) L-Sit Hold

1a) Parallel Grip Inverted Row

1b) Suspended Pushup

2a) Eccentric Only Handstand Pushup

2b) Front Lever Hold

3a) Hammer Curl

3b) Power Wheel Rollout

1) 1arm DB High Pull

2a) Heavy Sled Push

2b) Medicine Ball Slam

3) 1 Arm Swing

4) Farmer's Walk



  1. Looks intense. I love sled pushes. I can not do handstand hold. lol

    1. Oh, trust me-it took me about a year just to be able to hold myself up for a few seconds! Lots of practice and still practicing! :)

  2. This looks awesome! I love that it has some gymnastic moves in there :)

    1. Yes, me too!It has a combination of everything I love. :) And it is a 16 week program, so I don't have to worry about coming up with my workouts for 4 whole months, woohoo! :)

  3. Looks like a great plan. Some of these moves are gonna be killer! I look forward to hearing more about it as you go along.

    1. I did the modified front lever holds, and I did not expect 4 sets of 10 seconds to be so tough!

  4. This looks awesome! I can't wait to continue to hear about your progress. Please keep us posted... Your blog helps get me motivated to get started in my workout each day :)

    1. Thanks! I will definitely keep you all posted on how it goes! I'm excited to be back on a structured plan. :)

  5. looks like uncaged isn't available anymore, do you know any way I can get it?

    1. Yes, I did see that. I think he now has a new workout program called Renegade Strong.
