You Don’t Need Different Genes, You Just Need a Different Regimen:

The Workout Curriculum in DreamBody School.

.

.

Why, hello again!

 

There are 10 workout phases in DreamBody School. 

.

All phases are six weeks in length, with the exception of the initial phase. This initial phase revolves around home-based workouts and will last until you have access to a proper gym.

.

If you have gym access upon enrolling in DreamBody School, you may begin with the first or second phase. I will be happy to advise you if you need help determining whether you should begin with the first or second phase.

 

Immediately below, I provide an overview of the 10 phases.

.

Below this upcoming section, I provide some additional information about the workout program, before moving on to the following slide.

.

.

Workout Phases

.

The 10 phases are named and sequenced based on the path that queer / gay people walk in life.

.

Additionally, the name of each workout phase encapsulates what you’ll experience physiologically during that period.

.

I. Home

(A robust menu of strength-training options including upper body, lower body, total body, cardio, and abs.  There are workouts that can be done in any space, requiring zero special gym equipment

Also included are more dynamic workouts that can be done with a combination of bodyweight exercises, dumbbells, small and large resistance bands, etc. – for the aspiring superhero already building a tidy home gym.)

.

II. Endure

(Heavy emphasis on core engagement. Builds muscular endurance foundation through workouts focusing largely on repetitions above 14 reps, with short breaks between sets.)

 

III. Fortify

(Continued focus on core activation. Weightlifting sets develop muscular strength foundation by decreasing repetition and increasing breaks in between sets, allowing for much heavier weight to be lifted.)

 

IV. Bloom

(Still more emphasis on core utilization. Medium repetition range and one minute breaks help establish muscle growth foundation.)


 

V. Equality

(Focuses on single-limb exercises to diminish physique asymmetries and reduce muscular imbalances.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

.

.

VI. Reclamation

(Maintains strength and muscle already built, while focusing half of each workout on reclaiming natural postural and structural alignment. This allows you to avoid injury and grow faster in subsequent work.)

     

 

VII. Lust

(Activates testosterone and growth hormone, essential components of furthering your superhero body, courtesy of workouts that incorporate heavy barbell work.)

 

VIII. Liberation

(Enhances functional strength by freeing the student freedom from conventional weightlifting, opting for new exercises utilizing the dynamic “landmine” – a barbell with weight added to just one end, instead of both.  These exercises would have been too complex earlier in the journey.)

 

IX. Synthesis

(Triggers a fat-loss cascade by tapping into each of your body’s primary three energy systems.)

 

X. Lineage

(An elevated experience focusing on bodybuilding-centric workouts that blend advanced exercises with classic weightlifting staples, like the 8-12 rep range and 45-75 second break periods.)

Miscellaneous information on the workout program

.

What happens if I fall behind or travel?

.

The prescription laid out on this page details the fastest possible way to make it through the 10 phases.

.

If you feel the phases are progressing too quickly or intensely, or if for some reason you wish to pause your engagement with the workouts but remain enrolled in the School, it is easy for me to adjust your calendar on my end to accommodate your individual needs. We can adjust your calendar as frequently as we need, so you need not ever miss out, or feel overwhelmed. I will gladly take care of you regardless of the Level you select.

.

These next two sentences are very important. And since you can’t see my face while I’m saying this, I’d like you to know that I’m saying it with warm earnestness:

.

There is no such thing as falling behind in DreamBody School.  You will complete your curriculum in the exact timeframe you are meant to. 

.

Similarly, if you need to travel while in the midst of phases 2-10, you will have access to your workouts from phase 1, Home, which can be completed with little-to-no equipment anywhere in the world.

.

What happens after the 10th phase ends?

.

When a student reaches the end of their first round of the DreamBody School physical curriculum (early in their second year, at the earliest), they are able to repeat it starting from the beginning. You would now be able to use heavier weights and a slower lifting pace (where appropriate), both of which will spur more muscle growth and fat loss. You will build on the foundation you built during your first round.

.

Important features of the workout app

.

As explained in an earlier slide, the app you’ll use highlights and celebrates personal bests at the end of each workout. It also facilitates the uploading of personal progress photos and measurements at six week intervals.

.

As the student begins accumulating multiple sets of progress data, each new set of data is easily juxtaposed with the entire catalogue of the student’s historical data. This helps facilitate the student’s understanding of their own progress. Additionally, all of this data is visible to myself, the teacher, allowing for data-informed, individualized coaching for those students electing to receive it.

.

If you’d like an audiovisual demonstration of how this app works, I got you! I’m including it again at the bottom of this page. 

.

The DreamBody School physical training curriculum  contains an in-app calendar which spells out the recommended cadence for completing the workouts. Each week students have the option of completing up to five distinct weightlifting workouts, as well as cardio and warm up activities. If a student seeks a less demanding workout schedule, it is easy for the student to delete certain workouts from their calendar.

.

A few more good things to know

.

Every exercise contained in your fitness app contains either detailed instructions, or a model demonstrating the exercise. Most exercises feature both. Most videos feature a fitness professional other than myself performing the exercise. The snapshots of myself on this page are for illustrative purposes. All other photos below – of workouts, descriptions, app features and other models – are exact screenshots of the current DreamBody School experience.

.

All 10 phases include designated cardio, warmup, and ab / core workouts.  These are in addition to the traditional strength training components of the phases, which make up the majority of the work assigned.
