Here at Tucson Strength we believe in the value of being strong. We believe that strength takes many forms, too, and each person has their own unique journey of being strong. It takes mental strength to be confident under a heavy weight, to finish a tough race, to overcome body image issues, to show up every training day, to work your program even if you only want to do a lot less—or a lot more!—in a given workout; to make the choice to strive for improvement every day.
IT TAKES STRENGTH TO PASS ON THESE VALUES TO OTHERS
Our community is perhaps our greatest asset. Extremely varied and endlessly supportive, it includes triathletes and amateur powerlifters and people of every age and from many professions just trying to stay fit and healthy. It isn’t uncommon to see nationally competitive weightlifters training right alongside beginning kettlebell class members here or someone squatting a quarter ton just a few feet from an athlete rehabbing from a knee injury. Everyone has a goal, is trying to improve, and supports their friends here every day.
Proper strength training creates lasting physiological adaptations like no other. Not just stronger muscles but more robust connective tissues and bones.
The ability to maintain stability while running, riding a bike, or rock climbing; the capabilities to lift and carry and push and pull and squat objects that will make any daily task a breeze no matter a person’s occupation.
THE KEY TO UNLOCKING ALL THOSE BENEFITS IS PROGRESSIVE OVERLOAD
For the body to adapt it must be constantly exposed to greater stimulus, higher levels of resistance. To lift heavier weights safely and sustainably over time is the cornerstone of our philosophy of training. Lots of things have to go right to negate the potential risks of heavy lifting, which means plenty of instruction.
Our teaching includes learning everything from proper breathing to coordination in basic movement patterns, awareness and control of the muscles working throughout those movements, and proper technique for all the exercises we use—and that will sometimes differ greatly from one individual to another.
CONDITIONING ISN’T JUST ABOUT INTENSITY
Many fitness outlets are pushing High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) as the best and only way to train cardiovascular conditioning. This isn’t the truth nor is it safe and effective. We will teach you numerous modalities of conditioning including Concept 2 Rowing, Kettlebells, and more. More importantly it isn’t about the tool, but how we train the cardiovascular system. We will teach you the methods that will carry over for long term health not short term fixes.
We would rather see sets of 5 perfect reps, each one set up and then performed the same way to build safe and efficient habits under the stress of a near-maximal weight; than messy slop for sets of 12 to 15. The last thing we want is missed reps or even worse, accidents with potentially injurious loads.
We take pride in the intelligence of our workout programs as every set, rep and exercise has a purpose and value in its execution.
Our goal is to help each individual find his or her strength in the way that suits them best. We offer numerous programs here at Tucson Strength, from kettlebells to powerlifting, mobility classes, and indoor rowing. This 8 week program will prepare you to train any of these modalities and have a level of confidence that you are doing it correctly.
STRENGTH CLUB will teach you how to lift appropriately and allow you to use many of the tools that we use in many of our programs here at Tucson Strength. You will learn the fundamentals of kettlebells. We will teach you how to deadlift appropriately with the barbell while at the same time understanding how to control your body with many body weight training exercises that will challenge you and show you some amazing results.
STRENGTH CLUB will give those new members a place to learn our methodology of strength without being shoehorned into using a tool that is not a good fit for them.
STRENGTH CLUB will teach you how to condition your body appropriately without beating yourself up with random acts of exercise and feeling like you are being yelled at by a boot camp instructor. You will learn how to utilize the Indoor rower with awesome form and technique.
The training itself will involve the same highly effective and also safe techniques that we always use for strength training. Breath control, proper core tension, detailed breakdowns of exercise form, and a combination of basic movement pattern and muscle activation awareness.
Also—it will be fun! STRENGTH CLUB will be a high energy mid-size group training environment with plenty of variety and workouts that keep you moving. Our ability to to use any and all of the tools at our disposal in strength club will mean less boredom as well as more diverse skills in the gym for you.
