WHAT ARE YOU TRAINING FOR?
The old saying goes, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.” Training is no different. If you lack a specific goal, the time you spend training may easily become a collection of random acts.
The StrongFirst Tactical Strength Challenge is a goal worthy of your efforts.
The three exercises that make up the Tactical Strength Challenge are:
- A max powerlifting deadlift (three attempts)
- Pull ups for max reps (palms forward, no kipping, neck must touch the bar) or a flexed arm hang (in the Novice Women’s category)
- Kettlebell snatches for max reps in a 5:00 time period (unlimited hand switches and different weights for different competitor categories).
Preparing requires your focus on all three types of strength training; maximal strength, bodyweight strength, and cardiovascular endurance.
