It’s the first week of our new training cycle, and we have some great tips over on our Instagram account: “This cycle’s standardized warm ups include a Kettlebell Press variant. Check out this video of Coaches Fox and Whit discussing proper technique on this novel lift. Give it a shot and ask your coaches if anything feels off!”
Register Now for the Active Life Bulletproof Workshop at CFSBK!
Where: 608 Degraw
When: Sunday, July 16th from 2-7pm. A 20 minute snack break will be included.
Who: Hosted by Coach KHarpZ and other members of the Active Life staff
What: At a Bulletproof Workshop, Active Life doctors and coaches take you through the Athlete’s Hierarchy of Needs to identify flexibility, mobility, and strength balance limitations that can lead to injury or are currently limiting your performance.
Flexibility and Mobility
At the workshop we assess:
- Where your flexibility and mobility is limited
- How limited flexibility and mobility impacts training and can lead to injury and reduced performance
- How to modify workouts based on flexibility and mobility limitations
At the workshop we test:
- How balanced your lower body is
- How balanced your upper body is
- How strong your legs are working together vs. working alone
Based on these assessments and tests, we can tell you which (if any) Bulletproof Programs are appropriate or if you need more advanced 1-on-1 programming from one of our doctors.
Come Ready To Train
This is a hands-on workshop with lots of lifting, mobility, and flexibility testing. You do not need to be strong or flexible to attend. This workshop is for athletes of all levels.
Come prepared to:
- Perform bodyweight movements
Our goal is not to smoke you; however, the assessments are challenging and you will be tired when you leave!
