CaptureOn September 22nd, Alex Viada of Complete Human Performance will be presenting a 4 topic seminar on the fundamentals of hybrid training:

  • Specific and systemic adaptations to both resistance and endurance training
  • Maximizing speed and power production
  • Program design considerations for combination endurance and strength training
  • Improving specific work capacity- building endurance and volume tolerance

Alex has been a coach and trainer for over ten years, specializing in building simultaneous strength and endurance in his athletes. His client list includes former and current Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, SOFD-Delta operators, Police and Fire personnel, high level CrossFit competitors, Ultramarathoners, Ironman Triathletes, Powerlifters, Bodybuilders, and Fitness/Figure competitors.

He practices what he preaches, deadlifting over 700 pounds while maintaining the ability to run a sub 4:30 mile and compete in both Ironman Triathlons and Ultramarathons at a bodyweight of 225.

    Post corrected to reflect the boys work. Good stuff Thomas!

    One the smartest things we do at CrossFit Wilmington is reach out to athletes and coaches from specific sports and disciplines. CFW was only a few months old when Will Kuenzel came to CFW and presented a powerlifting seminar. Will is an Elite Level Powerlifter and at the time he knew (and probably cared) very little about CrossFit. It didn’t matter… it didn’t matter one bit. I learned more about lifting and mobility (before mobility was cool) in one day from Will than I’d gained in all my training years prior. It was my job to take what I had learned from Will and apply it to my CrossFit programming. CFW doesn’t have some the strongest athletes by some chance, much of it can be traced back to that first seminar with Will. About the same time, we began hosting Coach Chris Wilkes and his sons for seminars on Olympic Lifting. They helped improve our already productive weightlifting program. Since, we have brought in POSE Level 3 running coach, Ed Bugarin, Advanced BioSig Practitioner and Strength Coach Jared “Jrod” Olsen, and others to further our knowledge base. And unlike many certificate producing courses that have inflated prices, courses with coaches like Will, Chris, Jrod, and Ed are affordable to our members who have no aspirations of building a fitness resume.

    In the coming months, CFW will host Alex Viada for a seminar on hybrid strength and endurance in September, Will Kuenzel for a Lifting course in October, and James Tatum will return home in November to tune us up on the training and techniques he’s gained since joining Team Muscle Driver USA.

    We urge all and any of our members, and anyone reading this that is not a CFW member, to attend any or all these seminars that interest you. Furthering your fitness knowledge can only better your training in the long run.
