The purpose of this video is, first and foremost; education. I want to give you a “look inside” so you can see how we design and create our circuit training system. These circuits are a piece of the complete programming puzzle and there needs to be a plan when designing these workouts.
The three most common layouts I typically use for circuits include:
- Repetition-Based Stations: this involves having each athlete at their own station and completing a certain number of reps before moving on to the next station. I rarely use this format because people go at different paces so stations may be finished at different times and then we could have a “back-up” at a certain station. I’ll only use this if I’m working with small numbers.
- Obstacle Course Set-Up: I do incorporate this format if I only have a couple athletes as well (less than 4). This involves having stations laid out and then having the athletes complete them in order for time. This is a great way to create a little competition between the athletes to see who can complete the course in the shortest amount of time.
- Timed Stations: This is the format I utilize quite a bit. I will have stations laid out (depending on the # of athletes) and then have each athlete (or pair of athletes if they are partnered up) work at their designated station for a determined amount of time before moving on to the next station.
Once I have determined my layout, I will look at the movements themselves…do I want to include all lower body movements, all upper body, just pushes, just pulls, what plane of motion should I incorporate, what energy system do I want to target? If you’ve watched a fight, tournament, or even been in one yourself; you’ll know that you utilize everything I just mentioned. So my short answer is – I include all the above.
How do I typically set them up? Usually, it’s a lower body followed by an upper body movement…prowler push to sledgehammer hits for example. I do vary it, but that’s the most common approach. If I lay out two lower body movements, I will start with a more powerful, explosive movement (i.e. jumps) then follow it with a grounded, endurance movement (i.e. prowler push). I’m not a big believer in “mimicking the movement patterns of the sport” with my strength & conditioning sessions. We’ll do them here and there, however, for the most part, I’ll let the other coaches (BJJ, boxing, wrestling) handle that aspect. I think that my goal as a strength coach is to have my athlete in the best shape of his/her life so he/she can stay injury-free and excel in all those other disciplines.
All that being said, these circuits will focus a bit more on, to use a popular industry term; “power endurance”. But really, every match you witness, you’ll see every energy pathway exhausted. You’ll see pushing and pulling, lateral movement, sagittal movement, rotational movement, and hopefully you’ll see shoulder flexion when your arm is raised in victory!
I know I’ve mentioned this a few times already, however, it’s important that you understand that these circuits are just one aspect of a complete strength & conditioning program. When implemented correctly, they will help your athletes achieve their true potential in strength, power, speed, conditioning, and mind-set!
