This week at Moving Mountains- Sept 8th

Happy Labor Day Week! We hope that you enjoyed an extra rest day and got to play outside before our beautiful weather turned rainy. See you Tuesday!

The Power Block is here! We have been preparing for this all summer. We are balance. We have the strength. Now we build the POWER! Here we go! This block is based on a concept called contrast training. We have introduced this in our prep weeks. Now, we add a little more intention and focus.

Contrast training uses supersets consisting of high-load resistance exercises followed immediately by bio-mechanically similar plyometrics. Combining the two brings about post-activation potentiation, as the strength exercise stimulates the nervous system to recruit more motor units, so more muscle fibers are activated during the plyometric exercises. Load to Explode. The load is "heavy" and the explode is BIG! Go for it!

The contrast training is paired with the mountain conditioning sets that you love!
