The Professor Project gives you a program, community, and training system that will make you stronger, faster, and teach you how to move like the pros.

With thoughtful programming, you will keep hitting new PR’s while also moving more efficiently throughout your journey with us.

Your membership gives you 3 daily training options:

  1. Fikowski Training: Giving you exactly what I do each day
  2. The Daily Essential Training: A condensed version of my programming designed for those that want to train like me but only have 60-90 mins each day
  3. Premium Home Training: An at-home variation with CrossFit® roots to keep you fit when you don't have access to the gym

As your goals, circumstances, and (time) commitment vary, you can change which program you're following - at no extra cost.

Whether you're a 6x Games competitor or brand new to the sport of CrossFit®, you should expect to get the best coaching and training in the game coupled with a supportive community of folks that train just as hard as you do.

PM SESSION Warm-Up

H

10 Minutes @ Warm-up Pace: 10 Calorie Row 5 Goblet Squats @3011 Tempo 5 Push-up to Downward Dogs 5 Step Down Box Jumps Coach Notes: Move slowly through this. Get the heart rate up (140ish+ is a good target), respiratory rate up, and the body feeling warm. The first round might feel a bit slow and tight but it will get better as you move through the 10 minutes. Promise!

Strength Superset

I

3 Sets: 10/8 Calorie Row 3-5 Thrusters - building to workout weight 1 Sandbag Clean to Shoulder Rest 45 seconds Coach Notes: Get all logistical issues resolved during these prep sets.

J

For Time: 21-15-9-6 Burpees to 12” Target - Last Chance Qualifier Standard Double Dumbbell Box Step Overs @ 50lb per Arm & 24” Box (male) / 35lb per Arm & 20” Box (female) Sandbag Bear Hug Squats @ 100lb (male) / 80lb (female) Coach Notes: There isn’t really anywhere to push the pace in this workout. Find a slightly uncomfortable pace on the burpees and aim to keep the rest of the workout unbroken, using the transitions to recover the breathing and knowing that the reps decrease each round.

Pressing Accessory Work

K

3-4 Sets: 3-5 Strict Ring Dips @21X0 Tempo (add weight if needed to make this tough) Rest 20 seconds 10-15 Dumbbell Skull Crushers @31X1 Tempo Rest 20 seconds 20-30 second Back to Wall Handstand Hold Rest 90 seconds Coach Notes: This will create a big old pump in the triceps as you work through the 3-4 sets. Make the dips challenging for your ability level but keep the dumbbell weight on the skull crushers light to allow you to maintain the tempo across all 10-15 reps per set - this time under tension is key. If you aren’t feeling 100% comfortable being inverted with the tired triceps please scale back to a FLR hold and push down hard through the hands as if you were upside down.

FAQs
What does it mean to be part of the team?
When you join the Professor Project, you're truly joining a community. We all train together, doing the same session on the same day. And, just like joining a gym, you'll jump right into today's training so that you're training in lock-step with the rest of the team.
How do I get my training plan?
Click the button to Start your FREE 7-day trial. You'll then get an email to download the app and log in to your account that you'll create when you start your trial. All of our training is delivered through the TrainHeroic app so as soon as you download the app, you're ready to get started!
I’m part of the military/first responder, can I get a discount?
