WHAT DO THE PHASES MEAN IN THE DAILY TRAINING PROGRAM?

We use the term Phase to differentiate between the variations in training stimulus during a session. All training stimulates the body and its systems in some way. That stimulus varies throughout a session. Sometimes that stimulus is a very strong anaerobic and muscular endurance stimulus, such as during a timed conditioning workout. Sometimes that stimulus is a more gentle, more neurological stimulus such as during a mobility session where you’re including breathwork as a means of relaxing the body and tissues in order to improve range of motion.

A training session may include between 1 to 6 phases, for example,

  • Phase 1 – Pre-training, up-regulating breathwork
  • Phase 2 – Dynamic movement prep
  • Phase 3 – Strength training
  • Phase 4 – Conditioning work
  • Phase 5 – Mobility work
  • Phase 6 – Post-training, down-regulating breathwork

Or

  • Phase 1 – Pre-training, up-regulating breathwork
  • Phase 2 – Sport focused skill and drill work
  • Phase 3 – Sport training such as Short Interval Running
  • Phase 4 – Low intensity movement and mobility work
  • Phase 5 – Post-training, down-regulating breathwork

Or

  • Phase 1 – Pre-training, up-regulating breathwork
  • Phase 2 – Movement Flow or Outdoor Recreation such as hiking
  • Phase 3 – Post-training, down-regulating breathwork
