Audio Interview with Jason C. Brown

Taku and I did an interview with Jason C. Brown of Combat Sports Conditioning recently.  We grilled him on everything from kettlebells to periodization to who would win in a battle between the Power Rangers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Seriously.  The information we covered will only be available through our website!

We’ll have the clips available on very soon.  In the meantime, go to Hybrid and register your name and email in the upper right hand corner of the main page, so we can notify you when things are ready to go.  Trust me, it’ll be well worth your time.

Just for the record, no one gets your email address except us, so there’s absolutely no spam involved, GUARANTEED.  Just great info and lots of it.

Until then, keep training hard.

Jason K.

Long term progress

Most of us know that we can not train as hard as possible on every single workout for weeks and months at a time without burning out, getting sick or injured, or in a worse case scenario, all of the above. If you are being proactive about your training then you plan cycles of varying intensity which may cover several weeks or months at a time. Those who just sort of free-style their training may naturally cycle training intensity as they intuitively recognize that there is a limit to how often they can push to the max without over doing it.

Regardless of the approach you use to intensity cycling (logically planned or just winging it) keep in mind that some flexibility must always be present to account for or take advantage of unexpected energy highs and lows. In other words it is good to have a plan but don’t get so rigid that you force a hard day when you could really use a rest, or stick with a planned easy day even though you can tell your energy is at an all time high.
