For this summer there is a slight difference in strength compared to previous years for two reasons:
Put 1-4 into your backpack 20-40 minutes before strength and begin your pre-strength warmup.
Throughout the summer, our goal will be to keep training groups small so there will be morning & afternoon strength sessions and location from which you can choose. Morning at the field to the south of City Track with Christi & Rachel and afternoon with Nathan at Washington Park.
There will be space for 10 people each time, please check the sheet to sign up. You can change weekly but make sure there is space. Link to Signup Sheet
We are all working through an interesting spring but that doesn't mean that you can't start your strength rebalancing! Just get out on the prairie and use those rocks!
When you find unique ways to do pull-ups post your ideas in the comments.
Natural intervals are a specific type of interval that is variable and fun!Basically as you ski you choose the intervals. You want to mix them up with some steep uphills, some flats, definitely go over the top of every hill. You can even throw in some downhill and gradual downhill for fun.
You ski around the trails and time yourself on the intervals. They can be any length but they need to add up to 12-15 minutes of total hard skiing time. So each interval can be any variation of length but in the end 12-15 minutes of total hard time.

We are now hitting series of core exercises in a row to push specific muscle groups. Some of the series are challenging but when you do these you get stronger!!!

This rotation focuses on a little more endurance as you go from 30 seconds of activities to 50 seconds of activities.
