Since the finish of the crossfit games victory that I was fortunate enough to be a part of with my team Ute Crossfit there has been a peaked interest in people wanting to train with me here at Apex. With the influx of athletes I have begun to see the deamand for different services. The newest element that we have started at Apex is a strength and conditioning class geared particularly for fighters in the northern Utah area. I am no fighter myself, and have never even competed in wrestling in high school (uhm...you have to lose weight? No thanks.) Fortunately enough, even though I have no particular experience in the field, the fact that we can look at a sport and understand the demand it puts on the body and the energy system that we need to focus on in order to allow an athlete to be successful, I can find a way to program success. Right now we are building a foundation for the program and it is in its infancy. The training is scheduled to take place Tuesdays, Thursdays at 1:00 PM and Fridays at 11 AM.
What does fight training consist of?
1. Strength work with barbells and dumb bells (olympic lifts and foundational strength movements front squat, back squat, OH squat, step ups, bench, push press, lunges, step ups etc.... you get the picture.)
2. Gymnastics strength (Focusing primarily on body weight strength,midline stability, and shoulder development)
3. Speed training for lower and upper body. (treadmill, agility work....training overall athletiscm)
4. Interval training/ Conditioning (Rowers, Airdynes, Running, Rope jumping, sled push, Rope work)
Sean Powers(Below) is one of our current athletes enrolled in the program and will be a great reprenative for what we do in the "fight training" Program.
He's got just over a week of training under his belt, a good baseline of numbers to defeat in the next 6 weeks and is on his way to unlocking a whole new level of potential. If you feel like you may want a taste of the training or know someone who does email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
