Are your goals performance related? Are you looking to finally Rx the class workouts for both strength and skill? If so, one great way to help propel you towards achieving those goals is by performing extra accessory work outside of the class workouts. However, accessory work is often misunderstood, implemented in the wrong way, and many times actually becomes one of the causes that hold people back from achieving their goals. For instance, if your goal is to squat 300 pounds when your current best is 225 pounds, are you going to just keep putting 300 pounds on the bar and attempting it until you finally get it? We hope not! You will be stuck for a LONG time.
So how do you know what movements to do? That is the more complicated part, but luckily for you, we have recently developed comprehensive Accessory Work programs designed to help you reach your goals; whether those are to get better at gymnastics movements, gaining strength, or improving your endurance, we have designed specific programs to help improve each one of those specific areas. Each of these would be separate programs that would include two extra training sessions to be performed in addition to the scheduled class workouts each week. Each of these sessions may take anywhere from 20-40 minutes to complete, but the small increments of time invested each week are what make the long-term difference. While we do not advise performing multiple programs simultaneously (4 total extra sessions), hybrid options are available in which we would prescribe one day of two different sessions each week (ie. one day of Gymnastics accessory work and one day of Endurance accessory work). If you are interested in starting one of these individualized programs be sure to get in contact with one of your coaches to figure out more details and how to get started.
