Skill Transfer is Sexy
We talk a lot about the lifecycle of an athlete as it refers to their training age and competency. Today, you’ll learn that the lifecycle of a D3 all star is men’s softball. But don’t worry, although Luke and Tex are balls deep in training for the men’s semi-competitive version of a women’s sport doesn’t mean they’ve abandoned their passion and expertise for training for real sports.
This week they answer your questions as prompted on IG. The topic: how to replicate sport in training. The guys touch on agility work, prowler functionality, pushing and punching, limiting factors in the military, and breaking down technique. Each answer is carefully crafted with the science of physiology as the basis. A surprisingly informative Power Athlete Radio is coming your way.
EMPOWER YOUR PERFORMANCE.
And, ahoy hoy, have you heard the news? The Power Athlete Symposium is releasing a second wave of tickets for a limited time. These tickets grant you access to all of our sick speakers including Raph Ruiz, Derek Woodske, Bert Sorin, Andy Stumpf, and many many more. You can purchase yours by heading to powerathletehq.com/symposium. Remember that all proceeds go to Wade’s Army, our charity supporting the families affected by a rare form of pediatric cancer called Neuroblastoma. And listen folks, if you can’t get down for the Symposium this year, I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed. However, you can still donate to the cause by going to wadesarmy.org. If you’re familiar with the annual Wade’s Day campaign, we are doing things a little different this year. No need to get a team involved, we’ll take your cold hard cash straight from you as an individual. Just donate as much or as little as your want and decide whether or not you’d like to rock the new Wade’s Army uniform. It will be sent to you prior to November 12 for the Wade’s Day Workout.

A strength and conditioning coach since 2009, Cali has worked with numerous athletes spanning from rugby players to cross country skiers. Almost immediately after finding CrossFit in 2010, she was introduced to a program that better suited her athletic goals. With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.

In regards to military Physical Training (PT), average 3 miles about 3 times a week, and muscular strength two times a week. Also, most try to maintain 4 miles in under 40 min. To counter this to meet training goals I try to ensure I get enough fuel (food) between PT and my evening training times.
