Why Settlage Size & Strength?

This Settlage Size & Strength Program is a programmed designed to build some big, quality, dense, muscle, and use those bigger, harder muscles to get even bigger, and most importantly stronger! This is a long journey. Six months is a long time. Quality size and strength does not happen overnight. It takes time to make such a serious change in your body. There are many myths, misconceptions, and mistakes, people make when trying to bulk. Ever heard of a dirty bulk? Or have you heard anyone say, “I’m going to bulk”, but they still do hours of cardio so they can keep their 6 pack? I have made all these mistakes. My first bulk I stuffed my face with food, not always clean food, and gained 30lbs in three months and a substantial amount of body fat. Not to mention, I didn’t make as many strength gains as I wanted either, and I lost all the conditioning and endurance I had developed previous to the bulk. Since then I have several more bulking cycles, each better and more productive than the last. My mission with this program is to help you get BIG without gaining a crazy amount of body fat, and get STRONG.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED?

To do this program, you will need a weightlifting belt, or a powerlifting belt, shoes for squatting and deadlifting (flat soled shoes like Chuck Taylors will work great for both squats and deadlifts. If you prefer a Olympic weightlifting shoe with an elevated heel for squats, that’s fine. I use Reebok Lifters 2.0 Plus for squats, and Chuck Taylors for deadlifts) and a gym with the equipment necessary to do squats, bench presses, deadlifts, pull ups, dips, plenty of dumbbells, and cable machines/access to resistance bands of varying resistances.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I SHOULD DO THIS SIZE & STRENGTH PROGRAM?

If you are someone who looking to gain size and strength this program is for you. If you feel like you are fresh out of your beginner gains, and want to continue progressing in your lifts, this program is for you. If you are looking to get bigger for football, or put on some size for a future bodybuilding show, this program is for you. This program is designed to help those “hard gainers” and people who want to bulk up without gaining too much bodyfat.

CAN I DO THIS PROGRAM IF I AM A HARD GAINER?

Again, YES! I was what you would call a hard gainer. I couldn’t gain any weight when I was wrestling no matter how hard I tried. It wasn’t until I completely changed how I was training and how I ate that I slowly began to gain more weight.

Week 8 of Settlage Size & Strength. Body weight: 163lbs.

WILL I GAIN A LOT OF BODY FAT?

If you stick to your nutrition plan and follow the workouts as they are perscribed, you should experience minimal fat gain. Notice how i said minimal, not zero fat gain. Gaining weight means you have to gain some fat along with all the muscle you are building. Don’t worry, *SPOILER WARNING* there is a leaning out phase that will be available just about the time this program comes to an end.

WHAT IF I’M A BEGINNER AND HAVE NEVER LIFTED BEFORE?

This program is scalable for all fitness levels. Whether this is the first workout program you choose, or you are a seasoned lifter looking for something new, the workouts can be scaled up or down to meet your fitness needs.

Why #SUBMISSIONSHREDDED?

#SUMISSIONSHREDDED is a training program made for wrestlers, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and submission grappling athletes, made by a former high school wrestler, current BJJ and submission grappling athlete and life long lifter; Me. I have tried many sports, but my one love always came back to grappling focused combat sports. Through the seven plus years of training, I have utilized many different strength and conditioning programs to achieve different goals throughout my grappling career. I constructed this program based off of how I have prepared for the weight cut and conditioning training of my last two competitions earlier this year and had great success. My main goals and big focus for this program were to get stay strong, build on my conditioning, and have an easy weight cut where I can be the biggest strongest competitor in my weight class.

Why #SUBMISSIONSTRONG?

#SUMISSIONSTRONG is a training program made for wrestlers, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and submission grappling athletes, made by a former high school wrestler, current BJJ and submission grappling athlete and life long lifter; Me. I have tried many sports, but my one love always came back to grappling focused combat sports. Through the seven plus years of training, I have utilized many different strength and conditioning programs to achieve different goals throughout my grappling career. I constructed this program based off of how I prepared for my last two competitions earlier this year and had great success. My main goals and big focus for this program were to get crazy strong, keep most of my conditioning, and not get too big to the point where I wouldn’t make weight. In this program you can expect to get big, strong, all while still being able to make weight.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

To do this program, you will need a weightlifting belt, or a powerlifting belt, and a gym with the equipment necessary to do squats, bench presses, deadlifts, pull ups, dips, and plenty of dumbbells.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I SHOULD DO SUBMISSION STRONG?

Some question for you: Do you lose most of your matches by pin? Do you have a hard time escaping from mount? Do you have a hard time finishing takedowns or maintaining position? If your answer is YES to any of these questions. Then YES this program is for you! Strength is essential to finishing pins, as well as not being pinned. Someone can be a better wrestler than you technically and expose your back for some near fall points, but if you are strong enough to defend and keep moving, chances are you can get back to your belly and stay in the match. Of course we never want to even get in the situation in the first place.

Being a stronger wrestler will allow you to fight harder for advantageous positions and stay on the offensive. Strength in crucial to finishing a takedown. You can have the most amazing takedown technique, but if you are unable to produce the force behind it, forget about it. For you BJJ and submission grappling guys, if you can’t finish a takedown, you can’t engage fight. Even if you’re someone who plays a heavy guard game, you need the strength to hold your opponent in position and control his/her body.

IS THIS PROGRAM JUST FOR BJJ/SUBMISSION GRAPPLING ATHLETES?

No it is not. This is an inclusive strength program designed for ALL grappling athletes. Wrestlers in competing in both collegiate, freestyle, and greco, as well as traditional Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioners, and the No-Gi submission grappling crowd. The athletic demands of all these grappling sports are relatively the same despite different techniques and rule sets.

CAN I DO THIS PROGRAM WHILE IN SEASON?

There are going to be two version of #SUBMISSIONSTRONG. One for the off season, and a slightly different one meant for in season training.

I DON’T WANT TO GROW OUT OF MY WEIGHT CLASS. CAN I STILL DO THIS PROGRAM?

Of course you can! Through proper nutrition and training, you can still get crazy strong without having to grow out of your weight class. Although, this program is best used for someone who is already small for their weight class and is looking to get stronger for that weight class.

CAN I USE THIS PROGRAM TO CUT WEIGHT?

You can, but it wouldn’t help you cut weight at all. If you are looking for a program that is for a weight cut and /or conditioning, peep #SUBMISSIONSHREDDED.

WILL I LOSE THE CONDITIONING I

GAINED FROM #SUBMISSIONSHREDDED?

If you follow the workout program, stick to the nutrition guide, and recover well, you shouldn’t lose any conditioning. That goes to say you might not necessarily PR your mile time, but are you trying to run fast or get strong to win matches?

WHAT IF I’M A BEGINNER AND HAVE NEVER LIFTED BEFORE?

This program can be easily tailored to your experience level as a lifter. If you are someone who is just getting into sport specific strength and conditioning, you can choose the scaled version of the workouts.

Why #COLLEGECUTS?

#COLLEGECUTS is a training program created for college students who are struggling to balance the responsibilities of being student and living a healthy lifestyle. I was not originally thinking of creating this program, but after several people asking me about a program for college students with goals of leaning out/losing that freshman 15, it came time to create #COLLEGECUTS! I am college student myself and have had to learn how to balance being full time student, while having three jobs, and finding time to train for a bodybuilding show, and jiu jitsu tournaments. It was not easy, but it was doable, just like how it’s going to be doable for you! I have been training since I was in seventh grade. At the time, I did not understand how people did not have time to be healthy and workout. It wasn’t until I reached college, I realized the balancing act many young adults go through while being in school. Health is often left at the bottom of the priorities list. We are young now, our bodies bounce back like nothing else, although that time will end. If we don’t make the right decisions now, we will pay ten fold in the future when our health leaves us.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED?

You will need access to a gym, or at least some workout equipment. Honestly, any gym will do. It doesn’t need to be anything fancy as long as it has a squat rack, dumbbells, barbells, and a few machines/access to resistance bands of varying resistance. Most college campuses have rec centers you can join and train at during certain hours. You will also need some solid training shoes. This program is not for someone who is going to train in their slippers.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I SHOULD DO #COLLEGECUTS?

Here are a few questions for you: Once high school athletics were over, did you let yourself go a little bit and gain some “Freshman 15”? Are you someone who has never really led an active or healthy lifestyle and are looking for somewhere to start? Do you just want to stay lean throughout the semester now that summer has ended? If you answered YES to any of these, then this program is for you. The focus of this program is to help you get healthy and lose body fat.

WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE TIME TO WORKOUT?

You never have time. You must make the time. Not having time to train is a lazy excuse. Trust me, if you are focused and getting after it, training hard, you will be out of the gym in an roughly an hour. Get in the gym. Train. Leave. No texting, checking Instagram, working on homework, or socializing by the water fountain allowed.

WHAT IF I’M A BEGINNER AND HAVE NEVER LIFTED BEFORE?

This program can be easily tailored to your experience level as a lifter. If you are someone who is just getting into exercise and working out, you can choose the scaled version of the workouts.
