Here is a sample week from a month long strength training block. Designed to use nothing but a few bands, dumbbells and a pull up bar to allow athletes to train at home or in a gym. Intended to give you a framework to build a program off of specific to your needs.
If you’re a runner, you’ve probably heard of them. An FKT is a timed attempt to complete a particular route or trail faster than anyone else has done it before. They may be done alone or with a partner or group and can be supported or unsupported. In recent years, FKTs have become increasingly popular among trail runners to push themselves to their limits, sometimes in lieu of organized races. FKTs are a wonderful way to test your ability while also connecting to the wilderness spaces we all love.
