How To Create The Perfect Program W/ Ryan Fischer— Real Chalk #65

This week’s episode is all about programming.

Picking the right goal, manipulating frequency, volume, intensity, planning for adaptation, choosing mass or strength, making your exercises match your goals, how many days per week, sets and reps, tempo movements, rest breaks, gym programming, and much more…

This is probably one of my most passionate subjects and it’s what I’m known for around the world as an individual and a gym owner. It’s a lot of info to cram into 1 podcast, but I cover each point just enough to make you dangerous and understand what’s most important. No fluff, just the meat and potatoes. I hope you love it.

  • Hi Ryan,
    What type accessory lifts would you recommend after the squats? If any at all!
    I’m recovering from a bicep tendon surgery at the moment so I’m going to use this program to jack up my legs!
    I’m thinking twice a week for 6 weeks, with some leg exercises after the 20 reps. Any thoughts?
    Keep up the great work.
