Our strength training small groups have been pushing the 3-5 day splits for 6 months. We all love strength training, but sometimes we need to kick it up a notch. We need to specifically focus on improving our conditioning. What is “conditioning”? I like Joel Jamieson’s definition:
maximum amount of power output that can be maintained over a given time
Let’s do it!
Starting August 29th and continuing for 8 weeks, our Tuesday 5:30am and Saturday morning 10am groups will be METCONS (metabolic conditioning). That is, we’ll challenge your conditioning. These work outs will include three phases:
- Strength: one compound exercise where you’ll challenge yourself to lift heavy.
- Conditioning: a timed interval where you’ll push yourself to go fast.
- Core: a high-rep exercise where you’ll reach failure.
