Periodic training cycle - July

The spring term has finished, and we are ready to start our summer break. Some of our members will be attending the IKGA Canada Summer Camp in Edmonton, but for most that will be the last bit of Karate until we start again in September.

In the Spring term we started a cycled training program to improve our members' overall athletic capacity. For everyone that has kept up their attendance has seen vast improvements in just one cycle! An important aspect of cycled training is that it is consistent, and regular. With that in mind, our next cycle starts in July, even though we are not actually at the Dojo for classes. 

To help keep everyone on track, I will be posting weekly exercise programs to follow along with. They will be posted right here for easy access, as well as on a Facebook page for our members to check in and track their progress. Details of that will be posted soon.

Each workout will only take 15 mins, twice/ week. July's focus is on overall strength, and won't take up much room...and no equipment to achieve. Hopefully all our members will be able to keep up this small aspect of their training throughout the summer, as September will be month 3 of a 4 month cycle and may be fairly challenging if you take the whole summer off. 

Watch this space for the first workout of the Summer, and for details of how to track your progress.
