MPC2021 Introduction — Booklets

 

Ready to get reading? We have a lot of introductory information for your perusal.

The Training Introduction booklet is your go-to guide to understanding the MPC2021 style of training. In it, we introduce some terminology, discuss the importance of warming up and cooling down, and provide a general overview of the kinds of movements and movement patterns Peakers will encounter as they work through the MPC2021 training program. You will also find helpful information about selecting a cardio option, understanding which movement patterns recruit which muscle groups, and guidelines for measuring progress, including a chart where you can keep track of various body measurements throughout the year.

The Nutrition Philosophy booklet explains how and why MPC built the meal plans the way we did. It introduces the MPC way of thinking about food, instructs about macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fat) and explains how to balance them to fuel a healthy lifestyle. If you want a deeper understanding of MPC’s approach to food or are looking to adapt the meal plans to your own personal dietary needs or preferences (or want to build your own), here’s your guidebook.

Got a challenge in mind? Great! Use the printable Challenge Planning Worksheet PDF to get your thoughts down on paper. Brainstorm the steps you need to take to reach your goal, plan for any obstacles that might show up, and develop a motivational mantra to keep yourself working hard!
