An update on the Pepperdine Sports Medicine class- Neuromuscular Adaptation to Training (SPME 440). Over the past week, students have done some work with programming of high-intensity workouts. They have been playing with task vs time priority training and looking at various movements programmed within 3 day cycles of training. We have been working experientially with couplets and triplets to develop a FEEL for how they provide a very potent stimulus that accesses intensity very well. With this understanding, they will be more prepared to put together their own WODs to experiment with the protocol!
Today’s SPME 440 WOD was 3 rounds for time of: 300m row sprint, 25 sit ups and 20 KB swings (20/16kg). Since YOU have far more experience than any of the students in the class… I am interested in hearing your perspective on how you think the above workout played out: what was the time domain, how the natural pace ebbed and flowed, and how it FELT, and any other intuitive ideas? Please comment below!
