Silverback Workout Program
Training Protocols for Athletes with Injuries
Silverback is for master’s (older) athletes who still train hard but have accumulated a few injuries over the years. The protocol limits spine-loaded exercises, overhead pressing, high-impact conditioning, and unnecessarily high training volume. Just because it’s joint-friendly doesn’t mean that it’s easy. The program is up-tempo with frequent supersets and tri-sets and utilizes challenging high-intensity techniques like drop sets and cluster sets. Every session finishes with punishing high-intensity interval training (HIIT) to torch body fat and slow the aging process.
At age 40, skeletal muscle mass and skeletal muscle strength start to decline, with up to 50% of muscle mass being lost by age 80! The good news is that this age-related loss of muscle and strength can be almost entirely prevented with progressive resistance training. It’s the classic “use it or lose it” principle. By repeatedly producing high muscular force, you signal to your body the need to keep and even build more muscle tissue. Remember that old silverback gorillas, sensing the end, are at their most fierce. And they always go down fighting!
