Happy Friday! Welcome to the Iron Made Gym Newsletter. Our goal with this production is to share information with our unique community that will help you reach your goals.
First, we want to wish our man Frank Shaffer a very happy birthday! We appreciate all he does for the Iron Made Community. Our family here is a better place because he is a part of it.
Second, we have the honor of training the Mohawk Soccer team at our facility this summer. For the last two years we have done off site training for the team and have yielded great results. However, implementing specific strength exercises such as JM Press, Box Squats, and Bench Press (all things we could not implement on the field the past 2 seasons) have had an ever greater result thus far as numbers have increased substantially in the past three weeks. We look forward to seeing it transfer onto the field. Their training is constructed as follows: Day 1 – Maximum Effort Lower Body (45min.) and Dynamic/Speed Upper Body (45min.) and Day 2 we flip it to Maximum Effort Upper Body (45min.) and Dynamic/Speed Lower Body (45min.).
Third, so often we (myself included) completely neglect rest/recovery. I can’t stress this enough; treat your body like a high end car, make sure you put the good fuel in it and don’t run on E. This would translate into eat well, sleep efficiently, and actively recover. I want to share an article from elitefts by Clint Darden. He lists his three favorite tools used to recover. You can read the article and watch his video here: https://www.elitefts.com/education/watch-the-three-best-recovery-tools/
