This class will condition the body to manage maximal work intensities in a pre fatigued state and will superset cardio with heavy compound movements. The cardio will be done at a high intensity on keiser bikes and the resistance training will include weighted deadlifts, squats, lunges, kettlebell swing variations and pull movements. The resistance work will be multi joint movements for 1 minute followed immediately with an intense 3 minute session on the Keiser Spin bike alternating low cadence high resistance and high cadence low resistance. All this will be followed with a 4 minute recovery doing a series of body weight exercises and then you get to do it all over again and again and again!
Maximal exertion while already fatigued encourages the body to keep switched on even during intense periods of absolute fatigue, decreases chance of injury, improves balance and performance, conditions the body and improves the ability to recover at greater sub-maximal workloads. This is more specific to mountain and adventure sports.
The goal of the class is to build all body strength and strength endurance to mirror the intense physical demands of the mountain. This class will introduce some compound lifting like squats and presses to increase base fitness strength without gaining excess weight. The second part of the class will focus on work capacity/core, intense resistance cardio to gain horsepower and increase mental fitness.
Expect to be spotting fellow lifters, resting minimally and going to max effort. Train for your outside activity or adventure before you go!
