Instant Training Variability using Mother Nature

In the effort to be more connected to our Paleolithic roots, I often have my clients train outside and use the training objects and variability that Mother Nature provides. These include boulders for Functional Training lifts and cross body throws, logs for lifting and walk outs, hills for sprinting, and snow for extra resistance in the explosive phase, as well as to provide extra cushioning on the landing phase during plyometric training days. Instead of complaining about Blizzards, we embrace them and do plyometrics!
