Punch Gym Kettlebell Seminar In Austin Texas!/event.php?eid=145497252182466

Henry Virgilio Marshall from Punch Austin has graciously set up the details.

On Sunday, everyone will work on something different, unless everyone has the same set of strengths and weaknesses. For example my front squat and press need work. So now I work them. Skill is always something to work on, but programming is individualized.

Austin is an exciting city that I've been to before! Get ready for a fun productive weekend!

Skill/Programming and Seminars

Skill comes with practice and more quickly with someone knowledgable looking over your shoulder. In the past 7 or so years I've continued to improve upon things I thought I had learned but did not.

Programming can be more complicated and different depending on the level of the athlete. With many types of programming, results come in the beginning. But after a certain point, you hit a wall.

As for some of my students and myself, I've noted that the skills are 90-99% there. So now, it becomes a question about programming. Programming is different for a bigger athlete then a smaller athlete in this game. Think about it.

If you are talking health, then we can discuss the effects of Kettlebell sport on the different sizes of athletes dealing with fixed weight.

Then comes the discussion of periodization...well I think it exists or should exist rather to some extent. Back off for a time in certain aspects to come back stronger etc etc. More specifics are provided at the seminar.

The seminar (tentative) will be in three locations and times soon that I will post definitively in a few weeks. But for now, IF you want to improve your results and train intelligently instead of guessing, consider coming to the seminar. The programming happens during and after the seminar. Let me do the guessing. This is for kettlebell sport AND cross training.

Training Camps: Get Ready

Interestingly enough I will hold training camps, on a case by case basis. If you attend the training camp we will film it and it will be sent to you as part of the experience. At least your personal instruction.
199 for 2 days
129 for Saturday

Where and when depends on you and your team.
