BODYBUILDING

"THE WHY"

The hybrid of CrossFit and Bodybuilding is a sweetspot in training methodology. Programmed just right to target each muscle group for growth without losing track of movement magic, the excitement of CrossFit workouts and cardio.

Increased muscle mass is related to lower body fat. In other words: looking good naked. 😎

FBB is also a great tool to build a strong base. Improving in movement is important for injury prevention in complex exercises.

Assess & Biometrics

We measure prior to starting the program, to know the starting point. We'll repeat it to evaluate progress.

"THE HOW"

Workouts

5 Workouts / week done personalized. Building functional mass. Muscle. 💪

Functional Splits with full body movemets and smaller accessory movements, like Front Squats, Pull-ups and Bicep Curls in one workout.

We'll bake in conditioning so both strength and cardio actually feels exciting.

The overall program cycles through periods of different workout themes, so that adaptation doesn't plateau.

We'll give you clear and simple guidelines. It'll help boost the results from your workouts. A. Lot.

Functional movements are great to keep the body in good shape AND growing stronger at the same time. We don't want to sacrifice one for the other.

Frequently asked questions

Functional Bodybuilding

Is there any contract time?


This is one of our most personal programs yet, so we know you'll love it. But if you don't we don't want to bind you either. You go one month at a time. We do cycle the program with a three month periodizing model, with re-testing in the end.




What's the prerequisites?


Since we adapt the workouts to training background - and with exact measurements we'll know exactly what we can do - you don't have any prerequisites. What you like matters more: if you don't like a social environment, or working with a coach, you probably won't like this. And the FBB is also not a group class, so you want a degree of personal freedom at the gym.




When does the program's start?


The next one starts at June 1-7th, with initial assessments.
