WELCOME TO BLUE CHIP STRENGTH, CONDITIONING & FITNESS
The basis and approach for Blue Chip is simple. It's simple because we're already programmed to perform and achieve in this natural state. Our DNA, our primal instincts are to be ACTIVE.
1) Move your body - It doesn't matter how fast or slow, just get it moving (sprint, jog or walk). Why? The sprint work takes your heart rate sky high, burning calories very fast in a small amount of time. The long walks keeps your heart rate low, keeping your “gear,” low and in the "fat burning zone."
2) Lift things up, set them down - Aka, resistance training and not just shoulder pressing 5lb dumbbells or 25 curtsy lunges, I'm talking about real workouts, hardcore weight training, preferably circuit training. Why? Again, we’re talking about re-gearing the metabolism, building lean muscle to burn fat 24/7. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen with sets of 20+, it happens with sets that fail between 1-12… so it might be heavier than you're used to, and you will be sore! Accept it early on, the soreness will fade and your body will adjust for the better. Contradicting point: There is a a time and place for 20+ reps, but not often.
3) Variety is the spice of life! - For us, this is what Primal training is all about, finding resistance movements in the gyms/weight rooms that improve everything we do. We use kettle bells, Olympic lifts, our own body weight and gravity, elements of standard weight training, and power yoga to help us tap into "tune in," and find new levels that help us become who we were born to be, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
4) If you can plant it and pick it or pull it; if you can hunt it, you can eat it - To steal a line from Mike Dolce's Cook Book, "The Dolce Diet," we believe in Earth Grown Nutrients. It means just that, natural food sources as they were intended to be consumed.
If you're interested in achieving your ideal weight and strength, then maintaining it or steering it how you like; if you're interested in building on successes, and then sharing and inspiring others, Blue Chip Strength is for you. Whether you're new to training or reaching for a D1 scholarship, the program is right here.
