The Fit Life – 2019.38 – Building a Foundation to CRUSH your Goals
2019 has been a phenomenal year at Limitless Performance (LP) and watching the LP Members set and accomplish MASSIVE Goals has been incredibly inspiring! In addition to that, creating leading edge LP Workouts and Programming to keep the LP Members Performing at their Best has been extremely rewarding! Check out why the LP Athletes have achieved such great success in their challenges, races and events in 2019.
Strength, Endurance, Mobility, Power, Recovery
Want to stay Fast, Strong & Injury Free in your Sport?!?!? Of course your do!
Staying Injury Free and Performing at an Elite Level is a Challenge BUT the Secret is Building a Strong Foundation! Here is a breakdown of the framework used to build the leading edge LP Training Program: 💪
Without Strength, your performance will take a hit and your risk of injury will sky rocket. Strength in the gym, not sport specific, but more importantly focused on fixing muscle imbalances. Build head to toe strength and muscle balance to boost your overall performance.
- Ex – Squats, Deadlifts, Presses, Pull-ups, Push-ups, Rows, Dips
Muscular endurance, anaerobic endurance, aerobic endurance are all integral in creating the best all around athlete. Whether you’re training long or short, it is crucial to build a base of all three components in order to achieve your potential. Improving your VO2 Max (aerobic), Lactate Threshold (anaerobic) and Metabolic Threshold (Muscular) all assist in improving your efficiency to pump blood and flush lactic acid as an athlete.
- Ex – Biking, Rowing, Running, Burpees, Wall Balls, KB Swings, etc
Mobility is the perfect combination of flexibility and stability! Being too tight/stiff is a serious problem as an athlete. BUT also being unstable/hyper mobile leads to poor performance and increased risk of injury as well. Proper training will help create Mobility, to produce optimal power in all ranges of motion in your sport.
- Ex – 1-Arm/1-Leg Movements – DB’s, Bands, BOSU – Lunges, Step-ups, Core, Balance, Stretching, etc
Converting strength, endurance and mobility into power! Athletic based movements that require your mind and your body to work as one. Creating power is the last stage in building the foundation and becoming an elite athlete.
- Ex – Cleans, Snatches, Sleds, Box Jumps, Broad Jumps, Throws, etc
In order to achieve your ultimate potential, a recovery regime is crucial to your performance and longevity in your sport. Training is very demanding and takes a toll on your muscles, joints and tissues. Training also takes a toll on your nervous system and mental capacity. Building in daily, weekly and monthly recovery practices are crucial to your success.
- Ex – Sleep, Massage, Physio, Chiro, Fascial Stretching, Foam Rolling, Hot/Cold Therapy, Relaxation, Meditation, etc
Building a Plan
Turning all of the components above into a plan is a crucial next step to achieve MASSIVE SUCCESS. BUT not an easy step. Think big picture and narrow it back to your daily and weekly training regimen.
- Yearly Plan – In-Season, Post-Season, Off-Season, Pre-Season
- Ex: In-Season – 2x/Wk Foundation Training, 3x/Wk Sport Specific, 1x/WK Professional Therapy, Daily Personal Recovery Techniques
- Ex: Off-Season – 3-4x/Wk Foundation Training, 1-2x/Wk Sport Specific, 2x/Month Professional Therapy, 3x/ Personal Recovery
