NDM Circuit training principles
1. Move well
Maximally raising the heart rate at the expense of quality of movement is risky, especially with weights. Quality movement is the foundation for the long-term.
2. Movement > Strength > Power
Once we have great movement, enough stability and mobility, we can develop strength through exercises appropriate to our level enabling every rep to be full range, full power!
3. Progressive overload
The body adapts, so we must give it reason to adapt! We increase strength and power qualities through varied 4 to 6-week programmes.
We find a ‘happy’ medium. Too slow and we won’t force the body to adapt and we won’t need the rest! Too hard and the rest isn’t enough to allow us to repeat the effort. More on blog
5. Warm up and cool down
Walking it off immediately afterwards for a few minutes or jump on the spinning bikes to help you feel fresher for whatever you are doing the next day!
- Increase your capacity for muscular endurance and the anaerobic systems
- Make weekly gains in a motivated group – get fitter and stronger all year!
- High quality general training relevant to all sports of all demands
- Uniquely programmed, developed though years of NDM’s work with sports teams
