Strength and power double feature this weekend at the Chainstore!
There are still a couple of spaces left on the upcoming one-day intensive version of the hugely popular Power 101 course, taught by ADAPT level 2 coach and national weightlifting champion Kristian McPhee on Saturday 23rd May. This is a unique opportunity to learn from a coach who is an expert in both parkour and strength training.
Parkour is an incredibly demanding discipline, putting a great deal of stress on the body while requiring serious power and strength levels to perform safely, consistently and well. If you want big jumps AND a functional pair of knees, correct conditioning is essential.
This course is ideal for both coaches looking to get results for their clients, and parkour practitioners who wish to improve their power, strength, and biomechanics with measurable results, while training safely and preventing future injuries.
Areas covered include:
– The methodology of strength and conditioning for Parkour
– Physical assessments which can be used to gauge a practitioner’s weaknesses.
– Landing absorption Strength
– Jumping Power
– Anti-Injury ‘Prehabilitation’ with a focus upon knees and shoulders
– Periodised training programs for Parkour
Spaces are highly limited. Bring writing materials, and expect knowledge bombs.
