G.P.P training program 25th – 31st October

Posted 24th October 2021 by Josh Schouten


As we are starting a new phase that will take us up to the Christmas lift-off we will be starting back with some technical work on the Oly lifting and some higher volume on the main lifts. I would strongly suggest knowing what your percentages are before class so when in class we can have a good idea of the weights needed on the bar. Working to our specific percentages on each lift will allow us to get more work done in the session while not overdoing it, just yet!

In particular, you will see that Wednesday, the conditioning day, will start to have some structural balance exercises in it. We don’t have much time in the other sessions to fit all this in at the moment so I would highly suggest at least trying to hit the Wednesday session without fail. If this is not possible I would suggest you check out Jenna’s BBC Add on days that you can see here and try and come along to BBC or Open Gym to get one of these done.

If you are still not 100% up to speed on the program and have questions about how to best work the program for you and your need please do come and see one of the coaches pre/during/after the class and we will point you in the right direction. Remember, there are no silly questions, we are here to help!

For now, read the program and get your numbers in order so you can crack on when it’s class time.

Mobility Class: Oct/ Nov Program

Posted 17th October 2021 by Anthony Masters

Hello guys,

Quick update, the mobility class on Tuesdays 6:30pm has been moved over to arch 325 (spin studio) where it is warmer and there is more space. For the new joiners, this is a class focused on helping our bodies move and feel better (through mobilising, stretching & strength training) so that we can show some love to our body as we continue to thrive in and out of the gym environment.

BBC Hypertrophy Add-On

Posted 12th October 2021 by Jenna Fisher

Barbell Club focuses on a strength program with supporting accessories and those who have been dedicated to this have been achieving great results. For those who would like more hypertrophy, I have created an add-on program that you can use alongside your other classes.

Barbell Club Hypertrophy Add-On

With only a 3-day per week program BBC is not able to provide enough sets each week for every muscle group to grow significant size. A few members have expressed an interest in hypertrophy over strength so this add-on program aims to fill that gap.
