For a limited time, we are seeking military service members for a barbell-based strength and conditioning case study. You get full access to our Professional Coaching service at a significantly discounted rate for six months. That’s 1-on-1 coaching, a custom-built workout program, and accountability from a dedicated expert strength coach.

Please register using your military issued email account to verify you qualify for this offer. Space is limited to 50 spots and will close on July 31st.

You’ll find answers to the most common questions about BLOC, technology, and physical limitations below. Additional questions are answered here:

We provide individualized strength and nutrition programming and interaction through our online platform, accessed by phone or computer. You’ll receive feedback on each workout and nutrition check-in from your coach within 24 hours. You can also take advantage of our private Discord community to ask questions, discuss training, and receive encouragement and support from other BLOC clients and coaches.

After completing your questionnaire, you will be assigned a BLOC Strength Coach that best aligns with their needs. You can meet our military coaching staff here: 

Communication is handled directly through our online platform. Coaches may also schedule video conference calls every couple of months to cover any “in-person” questions such as goals and programming.

Absolutely. As long as you have access to the necessary equipment, you’ll do just fine with BLOC. Our coaches are patient and won’t put a heavy barbell on your back on day one. We’ll help you to progress at your own pace.

Yes. Difficult work schedules should not prevent you from making significant progress.

It is usually possible to continue barbell strength training through minor injuries and illnesses. For more severe injuries or illnesses, we will encourage you to seek medical advice to rule out any contraindications to barbell strength training.

You may elect to discontinue participation at any point during the case study. If you discontinue within the first 10 days, you will be issued a full refund. After the first 10 days, we will cancel your account after the current billing period.

All coaching will end after your six-month period. We will publish a report analyzing the study’s success, taking care to keep your data completely private. If you wish to continue as a Barbell Logic client, please contact Colin Slade.

Requests for extensions or expansions of the case study will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Contact Colin Slade for additional details.
