The All-Terrain Conditioning™ course teaches Strong Endurance™ principles and the movements needed to complete the protocols. This course is built for everyone from new kettlebell users to advanced Obstacle Course Racers, CrossFit Athletes, and Special Operators.
Dr. Fred Hatfield described an endurance challenge of carrying twenty beer kegs to a second-floor pub as quickly as possible. This general endurance task would be tough for many individuals. It is the type of general conditioning that most athletes need before the specific conditioning needed for their sport. How would you do on Dr. Hatfield’s challenge?
All-Terrain Conditioning is an in-depth two-day event that teaches the theory behind our Strong Endurance™ event and the movements that you will need to build your endurance the StrongFirst way. The course curriculum utilizes the Strong Endurance™ plans developed by Pavel Tsatsouline. You will also learn the most fundamental kettlebell skills needed to complete these protocols. This seminar provides 3 months of protocols to build your oxygen transport system (cardio) and develop more power. We will also provide a short peaking cycle before an endurance event. This peaking cycle utilizes glycolytic conditioning to prepare people for competitions. We will discuss when and how peaking should be used as it should be used sparingly.
The course provides the general endurance that athletes from many activities can use, including:
- Obstacle course racers
- Crossfit athletes
- First responders
- Special operators
The materials you will learn in this course have been extensively tested and refined. At the course, you will learn the following movements:
