What does it look Like?

Your session begins with a myofascial release technique used to inhibit overactive muscles, removing adhesions and improving range of motion. This technique os performed with a foam roller you to improve soft tissue extensibility while relaxing the muscle and allowing activation of the antagonistic muscle.

Next, we will address any necessary corrective exercises, joint mobility, activation of stabilizers and movement patterns.

Now you’re ready to train the core or abdominal region. Depending on your fitness level, you may have 3-5 abdominal exercises or just one like the Turkish Get-Up.

Power development is defined as the amount of work performed per unit of time. Power is an element of skill-related fitness that is needed to excel in athletic performance and is necessary for athletes as well as adults of all ages, unless injury is present. Power can increase through gains in strength and implementation of power movements such as the kettlebell swing and medicine ball work.

All of this leads to the functional strength portion of your training; these are full body movements like the squat, lunge, hip hinge, push, pull and carry with one or two limbs, that teach you to move as a unit. But first, mastery of certain bodyweight movements is required. I will also incorporate the use of barbells, kettlebells, dumbbells, pull-up bars, balls and bands to achieve your desired results with an emphasis on safety and technique first.

Interval Training is an excellent way to burn more calories at the end of your session, build endurance quickly and make workouts more interesting. Interval training involves alternating high intensity exercise with recovery periods.  There are a variety of ways to set up interval workouts. One option is measured periods of work followed by measured periods of rest. An example would be 1 minute of high intensity work such as a sprint, kettlebell swing or walking stadium steps followed by 2 minutes of low intensity exercise like mobility drills, jogging or walking and alternating that several times for 15-30 minutes.

RESTORATION STARTS HERE!

Flexibility is the ability to move a joint smoothly through its complete range of motion. Flexibility is determined by the nature of the joint structure, the condition of the ligaments and fascia that surround the joint, and muscle extensibility. Flexibility may also be limited by the skin, connective tissue, and bones around the joint. Flexibility is one of the main components of physical fitness and is important for optimum health. However, an athlete who concentrates on flexibility exercises at the expense of strength training may reduce joint stability and increase the risk of dislocation
