Hunter Labrada Reveals Eight-Week Training Split That Will Lead Into 2022 Olympia Prep

Eight-Week Training

Hunter Labrada shares an eight-week split that will help him get close to the Olympia title.

Hunter Labrada celebrated the Fourth of July by sharing his newest eight-week split in the gym. Labrada finished fourth in the 2021 Olympia last year and is looking for a better result this time around.

Labrada took to his YouTube page to share a video of the eight-week split he will be using to close out the summer. Once this split is complete, Labrada will fully enter his 2022 Olympia prep to put the finishing touches on what he hopes will be a championship come December. In 2021, Labrada finished behind Brandon Curry, Hadi Choopan, and reigning two-time champion Big Ramy.

This split features compound movements on different days, including legs, to “build work capacity.” He also decided to get rid of cable presses as he felt the weight was causing a difference in form. Labrada decided to substitute additional incline and shoulder presses.

Over the course of the next eight weeks, Hunter Labrada will work legs once every nine days. This is supposed to take pressure off his knees in an attempt to keep them healthy.
