The Plan

If you are new to Tr3s Method – Welcome! And if you are wondering what it is all about before you start check out this Blog post HERE 

Now you want to get started, but are unsure of how this should fit into your current exercise routine? And if you don’t have a current routine, no problem! We’ll give you some scenarios below to help you get started.

The Beginner

If you don’t have much experience working out, or have never really had a solid plan to follow this is for you. Of course we always recommend consulting with your physician before beginning any exercise routine.

To kick things off, we recommend starting with either of these two workouts – La Tortuga or The Mountain Climber. Both of these are easy to follow, and are a good test of where your current fitness level is at for moving forward. They both incorporate a good mix of basic and dynamic exercises and as all Tr3s Method workouts go – around 30mins. The difference between the two is, La Tortuga is recommended 3 rounds max, where The Mountain Climber is 30 minutes total but do as many rounds as your level of fitness allows.

Now that you have a good starting point, and a workout picked out, let’s talk about frequency and volume. As a beginner, you don’t want to overdue it. The key to long term success and reaching your goals is gradual growth, patience, and building a solid foundation first. As excited as you are to begin a new plan that will help you reach your goals, it’s important to not go to hot out of the gate – ie. do all the workouts and not take a day off!

With that said we recommend you start with 3 days a week working out with the Tr3s Method. Stick with one of those two workouts mentioned earlier and repeat them 3x a week for 2-3 weeks before moving on.

After you feel comfortable with the style and process of Tr3s Method workouts after a few weeks, pick another, new workout and repeat. After a few months and a few Tr3s Method workouts, you’ll find your groove of tackling the new workout each week, and knowing how often you can/should be working out. Listen to your body, get proper nutrition, adequate water, and plenty of sleep and recovery.

The Intermediate

Have you been working out for a couple years at least? Do you have a plan at the gym that is just getting a little stale? Maybe you just want a new exciting workout opportunity? This is for you!

We recommend a starting workout of either The Volcano or our flagship workout The McLovin, either of these workouts will test your fitness level in a dynamic, functional movement way. These are full body, compound movement based workouts that will make your stale routine do a 180! Both workouts are 3 rounds or 30 minutes, whichever comes first.

As someone who has experience working out, and possibly following a plan already, knowing how to incorporate the Tr3s Method won’t be as new as a Beginner noted above. You are most likely already working out 4-6 times per week. If you want to completely overhaul your workout routine, tackle the Volcano and McLovin twice a week each, alternating workouts for the first few weeks before diving into new workouts.

You can also choose to supplement the Tr3s Method into your current routine. We recommend taking on the new weekly workout once to twice a week, each week, when the new one is released. This will be a nice cherry on top to your current workout plan to say the least!

The Advanced

You have been working out for many years, and hit various goals along the way and you are looking to tackle a new goal, or want another angle and another competitive edge to the competition. The Tr3s method is for you, and this is where you should start.

Since you are a seasoned veteran of the gym or working out in general, you might not be looking to overhaul your routine, and more so just adding another tool to the arsenal to make you better. Maybe you specialize in a certain fitness platform such as Powerlifting, Crossfit, Bodybuilding, etc and want something to supplement your main focus. Every great athlete follows a robust plan of many types of exercises to make sure their Mobility, Strength, Endurance, or whatever they need, is the best it can be. Even if you are advanced and want a complete change of workout scenery, this will be the ‘view’ you are looking for.

We don’t have to dive into where or how to start much with you, so we’ll just give you a recommendation of a great workout to throw in the mix – The Boomerang. This is a fun and dynamic workout that gets the heart rate up and crushes the whole body!

The Pro

If you are a professional athlete, we want to speak with you. You already have a strength and conditioning coach, and most likely do a lot of work on your own as well. You want that extra competitive edge –  iron sharpens iron. The Tr3s Method is your answer and we look forward to connecting. Please email us at tr3smethod@gmail.com
