The Meeting Will Cover:

  • Program schedule and commitments
  • Introduce the new Competitor group class and requirements for participation (the minimum skills list for this class is different than the requirements for the full Competitor Program)
  • Programming methodology
  • Coaches and programmers
  • Minimum skills and capacities list required for Competitor Program

Competitor Programming Methodology

Those wanting to excel at the Regional level need to have a strong base of general physical preparedness (GPP); that is the heart of the programming. The GPP workouts are classic in design and variance; they are authored without gimmicks, bias, or additions that dilute the power of intensity. World-class weightlifting, gymnastics skill work, and strongman sessions round out the programming to provide the necessary base regardless of the athlete’s current strengths and weaknesses.  Assistance work also provides strength and mobility pieces required by higher volume athletes.  

The intent is that the volume can be accomplished in one-2 hour (or less) session 5 days a week. (It is recommended to break the Friday session into two parts, when possible, however). The expectation is that the participating athletes have commitments outside of the gym.
