    CrossFit Games and Sport Specific Training

    Are you not not seeing the results you would like from your training?

    Preparing for sport ( Crossfit Games, specific sports) is not as simple as working on the movements that you “suck” at, or repeating the types of workouts you find more difficult.

    For optimal progress in a sport, an individual approach is a requirement. Each athlete is in a different place and responds to training in a different way. The best training program takes this into account.

    The first step is you being assessed as an athlete and then we build a tailored plan specifically for you.

    In individual programming, we do different tests to determine how to guide the training process. Here are a few examples:

    Mobility Screens
    Nearly every athlete lacks functional mobility somewhere. We’ll assess and program work to address this in the off-season.

    Structural Balance
    Another important goal is to move the athlete toward an optimal balance of strength. This includes both left-to-right and front-to-back imbalances. We’ll bring up any strength deficit in the stabilizing musculature, which will allow for greater eventual strength development and significantly reduce injuries. We also assess whether strength or speed needs priority and what lifts are lagging.

    Body Comp and Nutrition
    We can assess if more muscle mass is needed to advance, of if fat loss is a priority. Training and nutrition must address this early in the off-season.

    Work Capacity Testing
    Very few know how to assess what energy systems are lagging in development in the Crossfit athlete.

    Scott Hagnas has spent the last few years learning cutting-edge methods to assess and train this. This can take your training to the next level!

    Do you have difficulty replenishing the phosphagens required for repeated efforts at max loads? Or do you need to improve your body’s ability to use lactate as a fuel? Maybe it’s your aerobic capacity that’s lacking.

    With this identified, we can then adjust the training plan to the individual’s “essence” or phenotype.

    Recovery Methods
    WE can individually tailor suggested post-workout recovery nutrition, nutrition for each phase of training, and address other recovery methods and timing.

    Seasonal Programming
    Now that the sport of fitness has grown, the best way to continually improve performance and promote longevity in the sport is to train in planned seasons.

    Every other established sport in the world has off-seasons, times when the body is allowed some rest and where a better base can be built. There is a reason for this — failure to do this leads to burnout, injury, or at best stagnation. Each type of training has its place in the yearly plan, but the timing varies for everyone based on their needs.
