Announcement: HPA Competitor’s Program

Starting August 4th, 2014 we will be offering three individual competitor’s programs (see details below) for those looking to compete in the Sport of Fitness (Crossfit, NPGL, & Alternative Fitness Competitions).

Each program is semi-individualized and will be based on the needs of the group as a whole. Consequently, we encourage everyone following to give us detailed feedback on all training sessions moving forward (this will help us better suite everyones needs).

Our Programs: HPA Gold, HPA Blue, & HPA Grid will all begin with an initial two week testing phase from which we will base the initial training priorities. Because of this it is critical that all who have intentions of following our program begin doing so on August 4th 2014, otherwise your needs may not be accounted for in the first training cycle (We will be doing follow up testing phases periodically so if you do begin following after the initial testing phase you will be accounted for in a later group avatar).

We look forward to working with you!

Program Details Below
————————
HPA- Gold:
HPA Gold if for the full time mixed modal athlete. Thusly, following this program requires full time dedication to both training and recovery (nutrition, sleep, stress etc). The HPA Gold program will utilize strategic two-a-days and requires athletes to be proficient in advanced gymnastics, variations of lifts, skills in a fatigued setting, and individual pacing strategies. Consequently, HPA Gold athletes must have a minimum of 10 hours a week dedicated to training.
The goal of this program is to peak athletes for the Crossfit Games Regionals; and the training/ periodization will be reflective of those demands.

HPA- Blue:
HPA Blue is for those looking to compete in the sport of fitness, and alternative fitness venues, but have obligations that conflict with being a full time athlete. That is not to say that you cannot be a high level athlete and follow the HPA Blue program. It simply means that volume will generally be lower to accommodate your schedule/ lifestyle (ie- one session per day). The HPA Blue program requires athletes to be proficient in all lifts and movements, but do not require a high proficiency in advanced skills and gymnastics.
The goal of this program is to peak athletes for the Crossfit Games Opens; and the training/ periodization will be reflective of those demands.

HPA- Grid:
HPA Grid is the first ever, and one of a kind, NPGL specialized training program. HPA Grid focuses on the fine tuning of skill oriented movements as well as shorter time domain workouts. While the Grid favors powerful athletes, a high degree of work capacity is still required. As such HPA Grid will train athletes to operate in multiple energy systems while concurrently developing muscular endurance and absolute strength.
The goal of this program is to peak athletes for the NPGL draft; and the training/ periodization will be reflective of those demands.

    • As of now they are scheduled to post at 10pm EST on the dot. However, we may adjust as needed and schedule the posts to go live earlier if the group prefers that.

      • Any way to integrate the competitors blog with this site? White text on black background is very hard to read.

      • The current format is a temporary solution. Eventually the competitors blog will be integrated. For now though I can change the background color to make it easier to read. Thanks for the feedback/ suggestion
