Strength & Conditioning: Vic Verdier, Week 1, Day 3

Vic Verdier’s “Explosiveness Is at the Root of It All” four-week program trains your body to respond effectively when you need it most.

EDITOR’S NOTE: “The Big Bang” workouts are written by Vic Verdier, aka “Man In Black,” who has been a training instructor for over 25 years. He began his coaching career as an officer training French Commandos. Vic holds more than twenty certifications, including MovNat Master Instructor.

I strongly believe that the two most important qualities you can have when it comes to physical attributes are mobility and explosiveness. This four-week program includes movements and drills to improve both areas. It focuses on ten of the thirteen MovNat fundamentals: walking, balancing, running, jumping, crawling, climbing, throwing and catching, lifting, and carrying.

This program is purely empirical, based on real life experience and common sense. Give it a try and see how explosive you are and you become. The training sessions post on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
