MADCAMP II. Making Freaks

 

MADCAMP II was so awesome I can barely put into words!  Our goal was for everyone to leave with so much information overload that their heads were spinning, and maybe a few PRs.  These amazing athletes of all levels from a newbie CrossFitter to a CrossFit Games athlete all leveled up their fitness.  We brought in the experts…

Dr. Mike Tillman who emphasized that “tightness inhibits strength” as he showed us individual mobility patterns needed for each athlete.

 

Coach Nikki Isbell, CrossFit games athlete and competitive nutrition guru broke down the pre contest wod meal, post wod meal and every meal for every other day to a scientific calculation.  She even told us when the evil dreaded sugar could turn athletes into super athletes.

 

Coach Wladi and Sammye Montoya dished out some super swim techniques and a great swim wod.  The even gave a few newbies some much needed swim lessons and when they were done everyone swam in their swim wod.  Smooth like a baby dolphin!

Newly added and newly voted “Best Run Coach in Austin” Valerie Hunt brought her Master Pose techniques and great enthusiasm to the camp.  She put the video screen on every single athlete and every single athlete improved in their run technique.  Yes, even the fastest ones!

 

Chad and Jodi Vaughn broke down the technical aspects of each Olympic lift and skill transfer exercises.  They applied the movements to a lighter weight metcon as well as that 1 rep max.  It was truly awesome.

I went over the programming and how to incorporate that strength into year round work as well as a few “secrets” to improving your core and overall strength.  Plus I got to inflict some much needed pain on a few willing athletes.  All in all we had a blast and everyone leveled up and learned a ton.  Just in time for the CrossFit Season.  Next MADCAMP will be in June.  Keep checking in here and Facebook for tips and strategies on how to level up your fitness.  Keep an eye on some of our MAD ATHLETES in the region also.
