• ballistic mb training are a favorite of mine to include as they allow our clients and athletes develop power in both the frontal and transverse planes. • upper body plyos - these add a rapid reactive contact with a surface making you absorb and produce force in a short amount of time. • contrast training - one of the most effective methods to increase 💥. contrast training is when you perform a heavy (1-3rm) strength movement followed by an explosive movement using the same movement pattern. • dynamic effort method consists of 8-12 sets of 1-3 reps using a submaximal load (40-80% of 1rm). you want to perform each repetition as explosive as possible with short rest periods (30-60sec) between sets.

Success starts from an ability to manage yourself.
quite often people burn themselves out or never get the result they want because they lack the ability to manage their time, resulting in low energy levels and stress coming out your ears.
take responsibility for your actions and pre-plan how you’re going to attack the day with your most important tasks set out first.
it’s impossible to operate at 100% all the time, so if you have a huge load of work now till christmas that you need to smash out, it is essential to schedule breaks and time for yourself to unwind.
the more you tax yourself with stress that comes from things like work and training, the more you need to plug in your own self-management strategies.
what you do with your time will show through how you feel and look.
