Spark Compete targets athletes interested in competing in local competitions, the Open, and Regionals. We develop well-rounded, competition ready athletes through carefully planned programming, aerobic fine tuning, strength & skill development, and bias work meant to specifically target weaknesses.
1. DEVELOP CAPACITY FOR WORK
First and foremost we will aim to develop an efficient, high output engine — your capacity for work, pace and sustain must be top-notch to be a successful competitor.
We will next develop strength smartly to compliment your engine — you must have the ability move loads when both when fresh and under duress.
3. TAILORED BIAS WORK
Our programming will also involve progression and individual biases to ensure continuous growth and systematic elimination of weaknesses
4. MAXIMUM RECOVERABLE VOLUME
Each athlete is responsible for finding their own maximum recoverable volume, MRV, (properly balancing training and recovery) and develop a keen awareness of body and mind.
5. ESTABLISH MECHANICS & TECHNIQUE
The mechanics and technique of all movement must be sharply refined for maximum efficiency — if you don’t have a skill or you move poorly, you need to develop it or it will expose you
NCCompete programming consists of training 5x/week (M, Tu, W, F, Sa). Thursday and Sunday are prescribed rest or active recovery days. If an athlete needs to train on a prescribed rest day, rest as needed and complete a five day training regimen. In this case, the athlete has the option to do the Spark60 workout with class for that given day or make-up the missed day during open gym hours.
BREAKDOWN OF BIAS WORK
Daily bias work will be included to help eliminate any weaknesses in your arsenal. Athletes should choose bias work specific to their own areas of weakness and strength. A single bias should be followed for a period no shorter than 3-6 weeks then reevaluate.
Spark has a seperate huge “open gym” space dedicated to competitors and “extra work” that is open most of the day, we have all the implements you’ll encounter in competitions like Echo Bikes, Ski-Ergs, Axle bars, Competitor plates, high gymnastics rings and all the standard Rogue CF gear you’d expect. You’ll never be asked to move out of the way during prime hours and you can focus on your goals alongside other competitors here at Spark.
