Welcome to Episode 10 of the Obstacle Order Podcast.
This episode compliments Episode 3 “Running on Variable Terrain”. This episode focused on preparation for variable terrain.
Matt Truscott joins the show to discuss 3D movement training. Matt compared 3D movement training to traditional strength training (linear loaded movement training). How can the two compliment each other in the context of a training program?
This episode dove deep into a theoretical training program. This program incorporates both 3D movement training and linear loaded movement training. Matt discussed in detail, how to periodize in the context an obstacle racing season.
3D movement is helpful from injury prevention to improved overall structural integrity. Both of these aspects will help the athlete improve overall resilience and performance. Two topics which come up on the show all the time.
Why should you listen to Matt? Matt spent the last two years traveling the world for ViPR as an educator to ViPR’s master trainers. He has an expansive background in athletics, including college football. His NFL aspirations were thwarted by a knee injury. That injury became a blessing in disguise because Matt attained first hand knowledge on knee rehab. Combined with his continuing education at Equinox Fitness institute and ViPR, Matt is a great resource to understand proper biomechanics and injury prevention.
