Ahoy Brigadiers, While our overall message is just to go out to the playground and “play” we do have a number of Brigadiers and Pirates of Play that want to take their athletic ability to the next level. In order to do this you must establish a training plan. Your training plan should incorporate the Mascot Brigade & Renegade Concepts of Training, as well as encompass The Wheel of Conditioning presented in this R-World blog.
The Wheel of Conditioning works hand in hand with the Concepts of Training to establish Balance and Harmony in your development as a Mascot Brigade Athlete. Each “Spoke” in the Wheel needs to be addressed equally to enhance your total training and create true “balance”
The Hub: Drive, Determination and Dedication
A Brigadier creates a strong impenetrable hub upon which all else revolves. A Brigadier is solidly built on honor, commitment and loyalty and knows no earthly boundaries.
Range of Motion:There are two forms of range of motion work. The first is Static (long relaxing stretches), the second Dynamic (ballistic movements to assist with the hip, shoulder, and spinal rotation). To be strong you must be soft. To be powerful you must be graceful, and able to fold effortlessly and explode easily.
Strength: This is a broad topic, but our strength work is done to improve postural alignment, force generation & acceptance and most importantly reduce the incidence of injury.
Agility & Linear Speed Development: A Brigadier must be able to handle the many reactive environments in R-World. Movement patterns must be perfected so you are swift and nimble as a deer running through the forests of Mascot Island.
Sport Specific Work: Exactly what it says. Spend time on the mechanics of your sport. Establish what sport are you focusing on and seek out a credited coach to aid you in obtaining the knowledge specific to that sport. Work Threshold: This is simple GPP which stands for General Physical Preparation. You must establish sufficient levels of fitness. We don’t want you getting winded or fatiguing early. The work here is tough, but to be a true Brigadier you must do what must be done and that is GPP.
