Cluster Training for
Strength and POWER

clusters-coverCluster training is a powerful method that allows you to perform more heavy reps in the same amount of time than standard station training, by doing mini-sets with mini-breaks within a big set. This big set is called the cluster set.

If you can do 6 reps with 225 pounds in 5 minutes instead of 4 reps, you’re doing more work and you’ll get better results.

Basically, you get bigger strength gains in less time.

Not too shabby.

And in CLUSTER5, I’ve added two powerful HACKS that will get you even more efficient results than standard cluster training, which I’ll get to after I tell you how I’ve designed the program to maximize your POWER.

There’s this concept called potentiation, which basically means doing something to rev up your nervous system so that you can exhibit more power than if you didn’t do it.

Any type of warmup will do this, but when you perform a heavy lift before a lighter lift, you are able to exhibit a much greater degree of power than if you didn’t do the heavy lift.

So for example, doing a heavy squat before a vertical jump can help you jump higher. I’ve integrated this concept into CLUSTER5 to boost your power, on top of your strength.

Now, you may have noticed it’s a 5 at the end of the word and not an “S”.

This is not a typo, it’s because in CLUSTER5, each Cluster Set is 5 minutes long.

Here’s exactly how it works:

  1. You start your stopwatch and do your first heavy STRENGTH set for the prescribed reps right away
  2. At 1 minute, you do your next heavy set for the prescribed reps
  3. At 2 minutes, you do your last heavy set but this time, you max out on reps – this is one of the hacks to maximize your strength gains in the minimum amount of time
  4. You then strip weights to your approximate 10RM
  5. At 3 minutes then every 30 seconds after that until the last set at 5 minutes, you perform your explosive POWER sets

So each Cluster Set lasts 5 minutes.

That’s 5 minutes to greater strength and power.

Not bad, especially if saving time is important to you. I also prescribe different weights and reps each week to ensure you get the best results possible – this is the second hack to maximize the gains you make in 4 weeks.

This program is 2 days/week of Strength workouts and 2 CAGE Cardio workouts per week as well, one of which is a brand new NRG System Complex that is my new “go-to” for assessing an athlete’s overall conditioning.

If this sounds good to you, then join me inside powerDOJO where you’ll get access to this workout template that includes the weekly progression as well as videos of all of the exercises to ensure you’re training with proper form.

I’m currently upgrading and adding a lot of new features to powerDOJO to ensure you get in top fight shape and once I do, the price is going up, you have my word.

Right now, I charge and people pay $125 per hour of training with me.

For Program Design, I charge $500.

But right now, you can become a powerDOJO member and get my support and new programs every month for only $29 per month (or save 26% and join for a year for just $249).

NOTE: choose the monthly option and you will be billed $29 today and $29 each month thereafter. Choose the annual option and you will be billed $249 today and $249 each year thereafter.

Here's What Current Members Are Saying:

Structure is a huge benefit. I like how this takes someone from various experience and fitness levels and builds us in a standardized, yet also personalized way. The community is huge, as it gives a great perspective on personal progress and motivation to push yourself. My personal progress has been awesome. My physical prime was back in high school over a decade ago. Since then, i have let myself slip. In the DOJO I have not only caught back up, but am surpassing that level of strength and performance. powerDOJO has helped me develop the consistency and commitment to constant improvement through the community and tools such as the workout tracker.

Tim Parisi, Meza, AZ, USA

I’m just beginning my workouts, but so far I have noticed that I am more motivated to workout because I feel like I am actually doing something instead of just going to the weight room & throwing a few weights around. I like the instructional videos most in powerDOJO. I recommend powerDOJO to anybody that is serious about getting in shape. powerDOJO is well worth the money.

Jerry K, 56 years old , Arizona, USA

I’ve experienced increased strength, size and stamina & lots of fun. I love the WoM and the Forum. I recommend anyone who wants to have fun, but effective workouts and would like to be part of a fantastic community that can help you push over your limits to join powerDOJO. There’s lots of info available and Eric will answer any question promptly. I also just want to stress how awesome the community in pD is.
