Another great episode that will help you train for your next OCR event. In this one I discuss the two big concepts that should be the focus of your training program right now. This is testing and programming. I discuss different ways to set your baseline and then how to use that information to create a better program.
In my research review I found a cool study that compared massage versus cold water immersion. This study wanted to see which one had a bigger impact on recovery. Check out the results in todays episode.
And I had an awesome chat with Coach Paul Christopher, owner of Gravity and Oxygen Fitness. Paul Christopher has been an established fitness professional, operating in the Boca Raton area for over 20 years. A graduate of the University of Central Florida in 2000, Paul possesses credentials as a Certified Athletic Trainer (NATA-ATC), Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach (NSCA), and Certified Personal Trainer (NASM). His experience variety is a blend of orthopedic rehabilitation, sports performance, and personal training.
In 2009 Paul founded the fitness brand/concept Gravity + Oxygen, as a grassroots off-season conditioning program for South Florida’s professional beach volleyball players, as well as a freelance FitPro locally. During these years, the trial and error of enhancing the group exercise experience was fostered. Fast forward to Feb 2015, to when Gravity + Oxygen Fitness opened its tangible doors for the first time. Located in East Boca Raton, the 5000sq ft “GO House” aims to provide an experience that exceeds customer expectations. In over 5 years of existence, G + O has helped hundreds of clients reach their desired fitness goals.
I wanted to chat with Paul about his experience with the Deka. He has a lot of experience from both running an event to competing in them, so I thought he would be the perfect person to interview on this topic. If you are planning a Deka event this year, I highly recommend listening in to this one.
