The Rec Player

This athlete participates in their local city leagues, playing games on multiple weeknights throughout the year. They don’t really have an “in-season” or “off-season”, as they compete year-round!

They use our workout of the week for general strength & conditioning once a week at their gym. These workouts continually work on their strength & stability, mobility, and overall fitness to keep them on the field year-round. Occasionally, they’ll use our club running workouts to work on their ultimate-specific running technique. They also use exercises from our soft tissue and mobility clinics to maintain their range of motion on days they don’t have other commitments!

The New Lifter

This athlete participates in the club season and series and recently started lifting to train for ultimate. Because they’re relatively new to lifting, they don’t need to lift several times a week to get the benefit from their workouts.

They use the club ultimate lifting and running workouts to train for ultimate. During the season, their team practices twice a week. They make sure to lift once a week and do the weekly sprint workout. They only do the longer, work capacity-focused running workout when they don’t have a tournament or a hike with friends planned for the weekend.

They make use of the daily core and mobility homework on any day they’re not already training and to help warm up for practice and games. In particular, they focus on improving their ankle mobility since they sprained an ankle last fall.

The Multi-Sport Athlete

This athlete balances ultimate with other sport endeavors, for example climbing a few times a week. During the season, they focus on a balance of lifting and running workouts to prepare for the club season, and attend weekly team practices in addition to keeping up their climbing skills.

Because of the demands of ultimate and climbing, they make sure to complete their daily homework to build core strength and maintain mobility so they can perform well in both sports!

The More Experienced Lifter

This athlete participates in the club season and series and has been training for ultimate through lifting and running workouts off and on for a couple of years. During the season, their team has a long practice once a week, one smaller pod workout, and they go to goalty pickup once a week.

Because they’ve been lifting for a while, they make sure to lift twice a week. They balance their overall workload by combining the technique portions of their running workouts with other playing opportunities, and decide how much conditioning and work capacity running to do based on what they have planned for the week.

They do the daily core and mobility homework every day of the week when they wake up to start their day off. The 8 minutes of core makes them feel prepared for the day, while the soft tissue and mobility work helps them recover better from the previous day of training. In particular, they focus on maintaining hip mobility, since their hips tend to get bound up over the course of the season.

They love using the workout-specific core prep designed for warming up to play tournaments, and have even convinced some teammates to do the core warmup with them!

The Very Experienced Lifter

This athlete has been training for ultimate through lifting and running workouts on a consistent basis for several years, and was starting to plateau in their training improvements until they started doing Advanced Programming with us.

During the season, they lift 2-3 times a week and do 1-2 running workouts outside of practices. Their team practices only on the weekends, meeting for several hours at a time and do “mini-camps” over a whole weekend about once a month. They manage their overall workload based on their practice schedule.

They split up the daily homework, doing the core work in the morning and soft tissue and mobility at night. This makes them feel ready to charge forward into the day, as well as calms them down before bed.
