I want to assure you that, we build our classes on intelligence, not negligence of trendy fitness. We aim to disprove bro science to make sure you can sift through what is Useful and Legitimate health & fitness information; the internet can be a dangerous place to hear every truth be a lie, and lie be a truth. You should have the right to know what is good and not so good, and that’s where we come in.
Orca doesn’t design a class just to beat you down our make you sweat. Sure, you will build strength and sweat your butt off in out classes. But that’s not what it’s only about. Sweat and strength development open the door so you can;
- Achieve weight loss and drop body fat
- Programming customized for You daily
- Develop strong, lean-and-mean muscles
- Become faster, flexible, fitter, and focused on yourself
- Prevent injuries to your Back, Knees, and Shoulders
- Real world strength & skills to Live Life Stronger
What do I mean by building our Small Group Training sessions intelligently? Aside from Coach Sean sticking his nose into any Health, Fitness, or Wellness book he can find, we also Test-Drive and then apply the methods that work into every class. We always write workouts only after we have tried them ourselves, tweaked them to make the most comprehensive and purposeful plan, and then adjust it to what you need that day. THAT is how we build our sessions with our brains first, and our bodies second; it’s a great way to ensure you stay safe and progressing forward, not doing damage control after continuous beatdowns.
Today, I’ll take you on one of our Friday Kick-Ass Conditioning workouts!
This week we chose to use a Tabata style, which is a format of set work:rest. It was discovered my Japanese Movement scientists who tested using this ‘Hight-Intensity’ method (training only 4 minutes per day) against a group training at a moderate intensity (who had to train 60 minutes per day). Over the course of 6 weeks, the Tabata training group had a large increase in their overall Aerobic (heart & lungs) and Anaerobic (muscular) Endurance, over 25% more of an increase!
Less time invested + More fitness gains + Less Soreness = Better Body & Health
- 2:1, work-to-rest ratio
- 20 seconds on, 10 second off
- Alternate exercise #1 with exercise #2 (1,2,1,2…)
- 4 sets of each exercise (8 total rounds)
- Rest completely, then move on to the next group
We build our Tabata pairs usually in upper and lower body focused exercises. That way, you are not overusing one muscle group of the body. Getting that muscle burn too early in a training session is NOT what you want! It will prevent you from lasting in a training session, and feeling ‘toasted’ with a few rounds left…meaning your coach needs to program it accordingly. Less burn equals better posture, more muscle, and good technique in each exercise.
