Check out this above video from Matt Chan for more on COMPETE
The TrainFTW TRIBE Program is intended for the general gym population that wants to improve their fitness. It’s designed to share programming similar, if not identical, to parts of the new TrainFTW COMPETE Program. You will notice the WODs are almost always the same (occasionally upgraded in style), but there is more within the training session for compete than tribe. Compete is a 90 minute training block. The Compete version is NOT held within one of our class sessions, but is a programming option for athletes based on the competitive individual. Here’s some more info below:
COMPETE is a NEW add-on we are currently trying (testing out) with some of our CF Open athletes that already perform Tribe workouts as Rx’d within the intended times. It’s designed for for athletes in need of a program for competition within an Rx Open. TrainFTW optimizes their training sessions in COMPETE to fall within a 90 minute window (longer than the general 60 minutes).
COMPETE TrainFTW is intended to be a year-long training program that develops capacities that require more training time, earlier in the year. As the Open approaches, conditioning is refined, as are skills anticipated to be incorporated into the competition.
If you have questions on COMPETE feel free to see me. We have a recommended list of minimums that you should be able to do before taking on the compete version of the programming, for example~
In the past few months have you performed all of the TrainFTW Tribe workouts as prescribed (as Rx’d) within the intended time frames? If yes, then see us and we can check on some other minimums before adding on to this additional programming team.
Other benchmarks (suggested by our programmers) would be:
Clean and Jerk: 225/155
Back squat: 275/185
Strict pull-ups: 5/3
Muscle up: have them
“Fran”: sub 4-5 mins
“Diane” sub 6 mins
“Cindy” 15+ rounds
The Compete programming is also revolved around performance in the CF Open. Do you do the open as Rx’d? And..do you have the required extra time to devote into your training sessions to add in more work?
We are keeping this programming group small, and at this time, it’s just a trial to see how our bodies adapt to it and if we want to keep this new add-on.
We hope you’re all loving the general TrainFTW Tribe program and it’s new changes. And to those of you trying TrainFTW COMPETE, please let me know your feedback on this new program. As always, see us with any questions.
Thank you everyone!
