Day 1/360: Wolf Brigade Subversive Fitness
My goal for you is the same one I share with trainees at my gym: wide-range adaptability, physical proficiency, mental acuity, above-average durability.
I use a specific set of movements and lifts to develop and train the patterns we use the most in life, leisure, profession, and sport. You can find movement videos here and they will be continuously updated as we go along.
Rest as needed between sets. If sets of 5 require interruption, decrease weight for max rep set to 60-70%. When scheme is listed as “2 x 5″, it always refers to “Sets” x “Reps”. Reminder: Position and range of motion always govern weight, and a break in either ends a max rep set.
Move powerfully and deliberately. There is no designated rest- if it is needed, keep it short and specific (3-5 breaths) and stay focused on what’s next. Rest during conditioning is brief recovery to fuel the finish, not extended reflection on what made you tired.
And then, for max calories:
Breathe, focus, and drive. This is a sprint, not a jog- no pacing. Goal is matching output from earlier in the week; Matching effort should go without saying.
And finally, “Time under tension”:
Work to “True” failure (loss of physical positioning) not “Relative” failure (loss of mental endurance). If time reaches two minutes, you may stop if desired. If time is under two minutes, do it again, and accumulate at least two total minutes.
