Aerobic Capacity Seminar with Coach Chris Hinshaw — Saturday, July 19 2014 at CrossFit Verve
This seminar is centered around developing your resistance to fatigue. Coach Hinshaw will lecture on understanding the sources of fatigue, how it develops and limits performance. He will also cover pacing – athlete on-boarding, assessing your aerobic efficiency, manipulation of workout variables, threshold training, dynamic vs static warm-up, and personalized interval programming. Another lecture will discuss muscle recruitment and development – the transition from CrossFit to endurance and the space in-between. The last lecture will cover developing aerobic capacity – programming endurance workouts (volume verses intensity, general to specific).
There will be two practical application workouts, including a run workout that focuses on the importance of pacing based on the standard list of programming variables (interval distance, workout distance, amount of rest, type of rest) and a row / ballistic team workout. You will leave this one day seminar with a better understanding of the development of aerobic capacity and resistance to fatigue, as well as how to apply this knowledge to a workout scenario for CrossFit athletes.
