Conditioning for Competition

Section 1


Competitors’ camps and fight training camps are for those looking to compete in events which involve activities we love to do. And also professional and amateur sporting events.

This can include things like competitive combat sports – kickboxing, Muay Thai, boxing and grappling – which was why I created the course. It can also include traditional sports basket like basketball, baseball, tennis, and other ballistic sports. It can further include activities such as sports shooting, fishing, and mountain climbing and is basically anything where you’re active, ballistically moving and using your body meaningfully.

In this section, I introduce myself, coach Johann, CSCS, and talk about qualifications later. We’ll talk about how to break up a training season into many different cycles, including macrocycles, microcycles and more we’ll perform an honest assessment of strength and conditioning.

We’ll move on to how to set quality fitness goals, how to mark them and measure them, including testing

Section 2 Goals

Let’s talk about goals, why we need them and how do we assess ourselves and our trainees slash athletes that we work with. Again, setting goals can be done for other people, or we can set goals for ourselves.

The methodology which we use to set our goals has to do with hard data and standardized testing. We’ll talk about periodization and the multiple types of cycles that go on with inside of a training year.

It’s important for us to talk about this because it’s the crux of all training and this type of periodization helps us avoid burnout, which is a huge inhibitor in the lives of athletes. And those of us who train constantly, know this style of training avoids injury and keeps us active for long stretches. Furthermore, we’ll talk about increasing training volumes when to jump in and out of our cycles, get into the BASE training pillars. And lastly, we talk about bodyweight flows and kettlebell flows here. We’ll detail, multiple types of bodyweight flows, the reasons we do them, and similarly with kettlebell flows.

Section 3 – Endurance

Endurance systems training has to do with high reps and low rest.

Section 4 – STRENGTH

Strength training systems have to do with medium intensities, including rep counts rest, and we do 90 seconds on and 90 seconds “off”, of active movement.

Section 5 – BURST

Burst in the BASE system refers to power and has to do with low rep counts, high active rest, a little bit of passive rest included. Typically we’ll do 30 seconds by 90 seconds by 60 seconds per working set.

Section 6 – unloading

Unloading week is different in that we incorporate BASE styles from the other weeks. We might do high reps, but get a lot of rest. And we do a 30 by 90 by 60 set and work agility. Mostly this is designed for ourselves and our athletes to keep performance high, not lose gains and still perform moves that are not overly specific to the sport, which we’re performing competition for.

SECTION 7 – Tapering

Getting into tapering is important when perform competitions, we need to power down the overall workload to prevent risk and injury by tapering and using Tabatas.

We bring ourselves and athletes and trainees closer to competition without sacrificing much in the way of performance and cardio.

SECTION 8 – Prep for battle

Mindset training and preparing for competition is covered here. “Soul strength & conditioning” is what I refer to as the techniques and tactics we use to jump over internal and mental barriers to get through competition successfully.

Let’s analyze briefly cognitive thought patterns, which might inhibit our performance using our techniques such as countering negativity and using mental imagery in order to have positive mindsets about training.
