Other/Mixed Mountain Strong

Other strength modalities (e.g., Clubs), mixed strength modalities (e.g., combined kettlebell and barbell), other goals (flexibility)
Bier et steakfrites is a great option.

On another note I’ve been thinking of A&A plus a short Iron Cardio session as a way to address multiple fitness needs or maintain strength/power if I’m focusing on mostly endurance of late.

Addendum: This came from looking through my old programming from the past year. Lots of slow barbell grinds. Now gotta work on power via A+A or Q+D starting in October to see how that goes.

A very interesting account from a former East German Judoka and a training camp which included a mountain bike ride thru the Austrian Alps. Reminded me of how I’ve thought of Mountain Strong and Combat Sport Strong in past events.

Given Mountain Athlete was one of my earliest inspirations for S&C this jumped out at me fifteen years later.

Took my take on MTI’s Aerobic Base test (linked) where I ran for an hour and recorded distance covered whilst staying at Zone 2 heart rate (for me under 159 BPM).

I elected to use the Zone 2 metric versus MTI’s Maffetone method as I’ve been using Zone 2 governed training for most of the last year or so.

I wound up covering 4.3 miles/6.92 kilometers with an average HR of 137 BPM and a maximum HR of 155 BPM.

I intend to repeat the test every three months to gauge progress.
