Here is the rundown:
Fitness testing pre and post both training programs which will include:
Hydrostatic body fat analysis
20 minute power output test
VO2 max test
Wingate test (sprint power output)
Training program #1
5 hours per week endurance type training
This training can be any type of training you prefer from running to cross country skiing, to biking or snowshoeing. As long as you get a minimum of 5 hours per week in and you are working in a moderate aerobic intensity it will be sufficient.
Training program #2
2 sessions a week of instructed weight training (aprox 1 hour each)
3 hours per week endurance type training (same restrictions as previously stated)
If you choose the second training program, it is mandatory to lift our prescribed workout ONLY! It is also vital that regardless the program you decide, that you stick with it. 5 hours per week is a minimal amount of training if your goals are to be competitive in the spring. Flexibility will be allowed if you want to spend more hours doing endurance activities.
The testing involved is well over $300 per person if you go anywhere else. (it will cost you nothing).
We have a lot of people volunteering their personal time for this project so please consider it carefully before making a commitment.
Please contact me with any question either by leaving a comment or by phone.
