Viking athletes doing their thing at Momentum

Thanks Jelly for giving us a highlight of what our Vikings athletes get up to each week with their Strength & Conditioning program at Momentum. S&C is crucial for all to build power and strength. It is even more crucial for athletes and in particular sprinters as they require more lean muscle to generate explosive power to run faster! Some other great benefits of strength and conditioning in relation to improving your running - sprinting or endurance:

  • Helps to build lean muscle
  • Aids in injury prevention
  • Improves body composition (decreased body fat)
  • Helps to improve force production and explosiveness

Manning Up to dominate the Kokoda Trail

A big congrats goes out to Greg Scott who has just completed the ultimate endurance challenge in the Kokoda Trail. Greg began his Man Up journey in 2014 and since then has worked hard to improve his health, his fitness and his mental toughness to be able to complete this epic adventure. 

In Greg's own words..... "It's relentless, the hardest thing I've ever done. Its unbelievable how tough it is. Man Up and lets go for it" - this says it all. Respect for the soldiers who lived this trail all those years ago and respect to Greg for getting it done. This is the perfect way to continue to remember all who sacrificed on the Kokoda Track.

Recovery is important especially when you train hard during the week.

Looks harder than it is :) - its amazing what the body can do. Come along to Momentum yoga - you will love it.

21 Day Shred - Body Fat lost, Fitness times smashed

Congrats to all of our men and women who completed the 21 Day Shred. With a combined focus on nutrition and training we saw some amazing results. Take the above for example, one of our new men Brad managed to drop 7kg over the 21 days as well as to take his fitness test time from 21 mins 47 seconds to 17mins flat - smashing more than 4 minutes off his time.

We don't stop here, work has begun this week on our next training phase - 6 Week Prime Movers. During the next 6 weeks we aim to build the bodies 4 prime movement patterns which must be strong for us to function smoothly - these are movements we use everyday and are the cornerstones to functional human movement:
1. Squat
2. Bend (deadlift)
3. Push (bench,push up…), and
4. Pull (haha stop it… pull up, row)
These 4 movements are the foundations of this training phase - add to this our conditioning and accessory core and activation work and you have a good idea of what our clients expect to gain over the next 6 weeks.
