Coach Eck’s Training Session 2/26/13

by Chris Ecklund, MA, CSCS, USAW

Quick Thoughts:

  1. Early morning session as my schedule was supposed to brutal again today (turned out I had some cancelations so had more time than anticipated).  
  2. I hate working out in the morning.  Takes me forever to get going…but…at least I get to do it, right?!
    1. As such, I didn’t get much done since I got to Prevail later than I wanted and it took me a while to warm up.

Energy System Development is below:

  1. I jumped in with my Adult SPARQ group today since I’m having difficulty getting in any conditioning.  
  2. Great session.  It always makes me work harder and pay attention to my movement patterns when I train with  my clients. (thanks for letting me train with you Wolfy and Liam)

Today’s Workout…Brutal

Great workout today. Give it a shot. Quick warning…the rope climbs are incredibly demanding for forearms. If you’re forearm strength is low (like mine), you may need to add in greater recovery periods or have to rest between the climb and lowering phases.

b. Valslide Handwalks Forward/Backward 4x15yds each 30 sec recovery
2a. Rope Climbs Hand over Hand (no feet) 4x8ft

c. Swiss Ball Oblique Crunches 4x7ew 30 second recovery
3a. Rope Climbs Parallel (no feet) 3x8ft
