Why Our Workouts Achieve Better Results Faster!
The foundation of EVERY Wodstar program rests on the concept of constant variation. When you are performing the same workouts over a long enough period of time, you will plateau and come to a screeching halt in terms of progress in strength and endurance.
For that reason, a subscriber gets a Workout of the Day (“WOD”), where every day they receive a different and unique workout. These workouts combine strength building with aerobic activity, which not only breaks up the monotony of traditional workouts, but also leads to superior results.
We introduce different loads, time durations and movements to train muscles you never knew you had to keep your metabolic engine revving and achieve superior results in less time.
Use the Best Movement Videos on the Internet as Training Aids
Proper technique not only reduces the chances of injuries, but also maximizes the amount of weight a you can move. Many lifts are explosive and go by so fast that it's hard for the human eye to pick up on them. For that reason, we shot super slo-mo, crystal-clear 4K videos of the best movers in the business to demonstrate the proper technique.

Notice each workout has an emphasis of major muscle group as well as a minor focus. You will work out the same muscle groups multiple times per week. The idea is to create the stimulus for growth and adaptation without over exhausting the body.
Perform each workout to the best of your ability and effort. Most moves or equipment can be substituted.
There will be days that you do not feel like the workout and you can sub one of the primer or supplemental exercises to promote circulation and keep your momentum flowing. This includes your mobility routine.
Pushing your maximum effort with quality shocks the body which creates a stimulus-response to send signals for the body to get stronger and faster. The magic in this program comes from your effort and the urgency of a clock helps push you.
You get what you put out here. Making the workouts competitive and working with clock to get you out of your comfort zone.
We have a focus on effort, but quality of form and safety is imperative. We must bring a strong body awareness component to this approach. Leave your ego aside and compete with yourself. A potential injury can set you back. We’re trying to get stronger and better.
EMOM: Every minute on the minute holds you accountable to the clock. If you put out more effort, you have more rest.
AMRAP: As many reps as possible, for the given time you will perform as much effort with quality as you can. Knowing that this is a limited time and recovery is around the corner.
As Fast as possible: Just as it sounds, you’ll perform he set as fast as you can. Again, you know that rest is right around the corner.
Again: This is not a beginner program. Be familiar with your body and the movements before putting the pedal down. Correct form and execution is more valuable that volume and speed.
STRUCTURAL BALANCE CHARACTERISTICS
Unilateral focus - while we do plenty of bilateral structural balance work, this is a key place to implement unilateral training. Loads are typically lower for these types of movements do allow for clients to bring any side to side strength imbalances back into balance.
Loading implement variety - barbells are not the only way to load your body. Getting out of the traditional loading patterns of barbells and using more dumbbells and kettlebells can help your brain and body adapt in new ways to help build a more diverse strength base.
Tension variety – Some moves will focus on the concentric portion and some will put emphasis on the eccentric and peak contractions and allow your brain and muscles to connect deeply
