Double the Effectiveness of Body Weight Training Workshop
No equipment? No Problem!
Have you ever experienced the situation, where a client, despite using well designed program created by you and despite putting in a lot of effort - "doing everything right" - still does not make progress?
"Insanity" is defined as "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Many of us have learned the hard way that clients don't "magically" break through plateaus. Client's break through plateaus by either
- ceasing habits (inside or outside the gym) that inhibit their progress OR
- providing some kind of NEW stimulus (inside or outside the gym) that supports their progress.
This 8-hour workshop teaches you 8 highly effective ways to provide a NEW stimulus to the client INSIDE the gym.
Many body weight training workshops take the approach of teaching NEW exercises to provide a new stimulus. "How to Double the Effectiveness of Your Body Weight Training" realizes that most of us already know A LOT of body weight exercises; what we need to learn is how to make the exercises we already know be MORE EFFECTIVE.
Exercises are more effective if they help the client build muscle mass or strength FASTER. The ONE way to build muscle and strength faster is by increasing muscle tension and engaging more motor units compared to the "basic" variations of body weight exercises.
18 years of work with world class and Olympic athletes, as well as research of century old and brand new scientific literature has been distilled into 7 techniques that have the potential to IMMEDIATELY increase muscle tension and muscle activation:
(Most of these techniques are also HIGHLY applicable to exercises with equipment.)
Tune Up Technique #1 Dynamic Perturbations
Tune Up Technique #2 Partner Resistance.
Tune Up Technique #3 Self Resistance.
Tune Up Technique #4 Muscle Control (and friction)
Tune Up Technique #5 Tempo Contrasts
Tune Up Technique #6 Co-Contraction (Antagonist Resisted Training)
Tune Up Technique #7 Combination Exercises that combine balance dominant exercises, power dominant exercises and strength dominant exercises.
The 8th Tune Up Technique – Periodization – teaches you how to put it all together in a long-term training plan. You get two "plug-and-play" training programs that you can use RIGHT AWAY with your clients.
- A 12-week plan for the beginner: How to achieve the first pull up, the first push up and the first one-legged squat.
- A 12-week plan for the advanced client: How to Achieve a One Arm Push Up, a pistol and 18 Pull Ups.
You will learn the theory behind each technique, as well as MANY practical applications of each technique that include squatting, bending, lunging, pushing, core, arms, hamstrings/glutes and grip AND how to exercise on the floor, against a wall or a door frame.
This workshop is an expansions of the sold out 1-hour workshop at the 2011 CPTN Conference. The 8-hour workshop is expanded with.
- Many more applications of each technique.
- The best way of applying progressive overload to bodyweight exercises (when adding extra weight is not an option), including the concepts of density training and cluster training.
- Detailed rules of exercise progression.
- Notebooks, pen, pencil, paper etc...
