Interval training is an essential part of training. “Day Break” will challenge you to do longer intervals with minimal rest. The strength portion of the workout is a chance for you to increase that posterior chain which is critical in uphill bouts.
Train to Hunt can change your life, your outlook, your confidence…here is an e-mail we received from Jon Olson outlining some of the changes he has seen.
I just wanted to share with you how things have been going. Some months ago if you remember I sent a lengthy email regarding my physical issues and how I am using TTH to help in my fight. I wanted to let you know that while my pain levels are still the same (higher than I would like) I am getting fitter which is so helpful both mentally and spiritually. For awhile I have been doing modified Warrior workouts and recently I have been able to do many of them as Rx’d.
Last week I had a breakthrough on the Warrior 21-15-9 OH Squat, Toes to bar couplet doing it it as Rx’d in 6:57. I can’t tell you how thankful I was to be able to get a solid workout in. To follow it up I did the 50 step up, 1/2 mile pack, 1 mile run, 1/2 mile pack, 50 set up work out with a 100 pound pack and an 18 inch bench. I wasn’t fast (31 minutes) but I did it. My neuropathy and lack of feeling in my feet made my balance with that weight shakey when I tried to speed up. I also struggled with the neuropathy in my right quad and was dragging the leg a little so I took it slow ( I didn’t want to fall) but I was thrilled to do a predator workout. Again today I did the ridge workout at the predator level (I had to use a backpack with 70# instead of a sandbag since I don’t have one out here). Again I was slow (21 minutes) but I did it.
This is really wonderful for me since two years ago I struggled to run two miles in 22 minutes. It is truly hard to describe how thankful I am and I wanted to share my joy with you both.
Really this is a testimony as to how God is moving in my life as an answer to prayer from so many loved ones. He hasn’t taken the pain away but is allowing me to grow in my fitness despite the pain. I hope some day He will use this experience of mine to help inspire others who live with chronic pain to keep up the fight.
Thanks guys for the guidance and for giving me some numbers to strive for, it has helped me to keep pushing to be my best and model that for my children. I am thankful for the other fellows who work so hard through your guidance.
Grace + Peace,
I humbled and blessed to be able to help Jon…Thanks for the kind words.
