FOR THE COACH

Stimulus 
  • Workout brief: https://youtu.be/ThVYOkEnOwk
  • Resource Links:  CompTrain Gym Resource Drive
  • Today we have a classic full body and primarily gymnastics only conditioning workout. We want to recognize this workout as highly cyclical and should be able to keep moving consistently throughout all 20 minutes. Encourage your athletes to modify so that all movements can be completed in around :60. Athletes should hold DB in goblet position. 
  • Strict Pull Ups | :60 or less. 
  • Alternating DB Lunges | :80 or less. Unbroken.
  • Abmat Sit ups | :60 or less
  • Double Unders | :60 or less. 2 sets or less.

The one | Teaching Focus 
  • Range of motion 
  • Today’s teaching focus is a through line across most movements. In the strict pull ups each rep should have the chin over the bar at the top and full extension of the elbow at lockout. In the lunges, the athlete’s knee should make contact with the ground and they should complete each rep by standing tall with the hips and knees fully extended. In the sit ups, the shoulder should make contact with the floor and then pass through the hips. 

Modifications

Strict pull ups 

  • Reduce volume 
  • Add assistance 
  • Elevated ring rows 
  • Ring rows 

Alternating Lunges

  • Reduce volume 
  • Knee to elevated surface to reduce ROM
  • Add stabilizing assistance
  • Air squats 

Abmat Sit ups 

  • Reduce volume 
  • Add band assistance 
  • Hollow rocks 

Double Unders 

  • Reduce volume 
  • Single unders
  • Plate / line hops

Logistics
  • If you need to manage a large group in limited space you  can start athletes at different points of the workout. Since each station should take a similar amount of time athletes should be able to begin at different points and keep from getting jammed up at any particular station.

Mindset 

"Pain versus Discomfort"

 

There is a common misconception about pain.

Pain is not what we feel inside of a conditioning workout, or the tail end of a heavy squat set. 

 

Real pain is different.

Pain is when we are walking through the garage and stepping on a nail.

Pain is when we lose a limb.

Real pain is when we lose a loved one.

 

What we feel inside conditioning sets is not pain... It's discomfort.

Training isn’t painful. It’s uncomfortable at times, but – it’s not pain.

Let's use this as a perspective change as we enter today's training.

Today, we’ll get uncomfortable.
