Well, the first thing is to know the difference between working out and training.
Working is usually an experience, a temporary high.
Yes, you can break a good sweat and end as a heap on the floor afterwards, if that is all you want.
Training on the other hand is a program designed with specific intent to achieve desired goals over time.
In Mace Fit® we train.
In Cave Strong we train.
Both of our training programs are covered under our Quarterly Strength & Work Capacity Tests.
Every three months our athletes go through a battery of ten tests.
The tests are standardized and work from the training journals of each person.
(Training journals are required at the Cave to be a participant in the testing cycles.)
Here’s a brief look at what we test–
long cycles (clubs)
max. sled push
Seven of these are broken down further into three types of tests depending on the last cycle’s test results.
This testing system has been reliable for over 11 years at my gym.
It gets ongoing results.
It just works.
Things that are not tested never improve.
Set up your own tests if you want to get better at what you do.
Out for now,
