Top Notch Training Revealed: Extraordinary Work Capacity Yields Colossal Strength Gains!
Have you earned the right to workout with intensity? Unleash your hidden potential for unbelievable strength and physical expression! With consistency, patience, and an unrivaled training program, you can begin making substantial progress with your training.
At the core of GymnasticBodies Training is an incredible amount of high-quality training in a set period of time. This is most commonly referred to as work capacity and, when it comes to Gymnastic Strength TrainingTM, everyone could surely use more of this powerful workout component.
Here is how you can maximize your time in the gym by acquiring a high work capacity, and reach your full potential!
Mobilization and Work Capacity Training: The Ultimate Blend
Your muscles adapt at a much faster rate than your joints, which is exactly why GymnasticBodies puts a strong emphasis on building more strength through your tendons, ligaments, and other connective tissues. We want you to be healthy and remain injury free before all else!
This is why Coach Sommer structures beginner workouts with short, active rest intervals. This active rest is used to mobilize your body and teach it to keep moving as you recover for the next strength set.
The extra work and blood flow will help strengthen the smaller tendons and ligaments while simultaneously increasing your work capacity. You’re literally covering every base by mobilizing your body, strengthening your muscles, and continuously increasing your ability to do greater amounts of more difficult training in the same amount of time.
Your body will thrive on this system and ultimately develop strength as a byproduct.
Gymnastic Work Capacity Reigns Supreme
Be sure to note that work capacity is somewhat specific to the activities you do. If you’re a runner, for instance, then you might have a relatively high work capacity when it comes to endurance related activities.
However, that does not mean that work capacity will transfer over to other activities like handstand training since handstands are a combination of strength, mobility, and skill.
In fact, when it comes to handstand training, your ability to perform a certain amount of work in a session may be limited severely by your body's range of motion. This is another reason why the GB Online Courses contain integrated mobility drills in between strength sets: most adults need to spend extra time on their mobility, and alternating strength and mobility thus increases the amount of work done in a shorter amount of time.
Luckily, when it comes to GSTTM, work capacity more easily goes the other way. Since gymnastic strength and abilities are so complete and well rounded, once you have earned yourself a high degree of gymnastic work capacity, you will own whatever other activities you decide to undertake!
In fact, upon mastery of the GB Foundation Series, you will have attained the perfect balance of mobility, full-body power, core strength, coordination, and control. Plus, you will be able to safely perform a massive amount of demanding exercise in a short period of time.
You can then choose to transfer these remarkable abilities and dominate other activities or pursue more advanced gymnastic skills. Your physical possibilities become endless after you’ve secured the supreme work capacity of a gymnast!
Maximal Strength as Digging a Hole
To get a sense of what work capacity entails, we need to first discuss the concept of maximal strength. Consider the analogy that the stronger you are, the deeper hole you can dig into the ground. Beginners, by definition, have a relatively low level of maximal strength, and thus they can only dig themselves a shallow hole. As such, it does not take them that long to recover from their strength efforts, simply because they just are not that strong yet!
For example, if you tire easily from beginner level GSTTM exercises like V-ups or bodyweight rows, then you qualify as a beginner. As such, you do not require a lot of rest between sets; you did not dig yourself that deep of a hole. It also won’t take long "climb back up" out of the hole when it is still very shallow.
On the other hand, when an elite level gymnast is training world-class ring strength, then they absolutely do play by a different set of rules. If iron crosses are on your workout log for the day, then you are strong enough to dig yourself a very deep hole. As a result, your body physiologically requires more time to recover between sets.
Not sure where your GST work capacity stands? The GB Foundation Series will help you gauge exactly where you’re at all while emphasizing efficient, productive workouts designed to target injury prevention, joint mobilization, and improved Gymnastic Strength TrainingTM work capacity.
