POWER ATHLETE'S AUSTERE TRAINING COURSE
No gym, no problem. Create your own workouts to keep training goals on track while away from the rack.
Austere Training is the practice of strength and conditioning in resource-constrained, perhaps harsher, environments. And no, we are not talking about the water dispenser flashing its red “need a new filter” light or the WiFi going down. We mean spaces like the wilderness, limited hotel gyms, or day one of your home gym build, where all you have is a cinder block, a bag of concrete, a bucket, and a dream.
Power Athlete's Austere Training Course provides you with an introduction to the fundamentals of movement and the necessary skills to write your own workouts using minimal equipment to maximize strength gains. Whether traveling, deployed, or locked down from your gym, this course empower you to continue training effectively by teaching you intelligent programming and a resilience mindset.
Over an hour and half of video lecture and video movement instructions!
This course is done at your own pace. Depending on your learning style, you can read the required reading then watch the videos. We have also seen success in watching the videos first, then following up with the written material.
