Progressive Conditioning

In Mental Mastery, Strongman Mastery by adminLeave a Comment

An important part of a complete training program is to do some sort of conditioning work. Of course, this can come in many shapes and sizes.

Sprints, kettlebell swings and snatches, skipping rope, and high rep bodyweight exercises are a few of my favorites.

And just like in any other training, your conditioning work should be made progressive. The thing is its not so easy as just adding more weight like you can with a barbell.

In these cases you’ll most often be working with volume and time. That is to do a certain amount of work (no matter the exercises or tools used) in a period of time.

If you can do the same work in less time, or more work in the same amount of time you’re doing better than before. Since this is a conditioning based activity progress means you’ve improved your conditioning.

You can change up what you do to condition yourself from session to session as long as you have a ‘test’ workout. That’s a specific workout you come back to again and again to see if you’ve improved.

I’ll share with you what I use later on to test out my conditioning levels, later on. But for now just make sure you do progressive training when it comes to strength AND conditioning.

In strength,
