You'll get the most out of your training by focusing on one goal at a time and cycling through your goals. But many of our programs are complementary. While you focus on one, you can use the others to warm up and keep your body's capabilities primed.
Here's an example of how you can combine Integral Strength training with other programs like Elements, Vitamin, and Focused Flexibility:
- Warm up with 20 minutes of Vitamin to work on movement quality (or 20 minutes of Elements to keep your foundation solid, or 10 minutes of each).
- Then spend 30 minutes on your main Integral Strength practice for the day.
- Finish with 20 minutes of stretching from Focused Flexibility.
As you continue to work through multiple programs, you can adjust the time spent on each section accordingly. :)
Because of the level of intensity of our Level One (F1, R1, and P1) and Level Two (F2, R2, and P2) programs, we don't recommend combining Integral Strength with one of these programs.
Some of the movements in these programs overlap, which can hurt your recovery time and might lead to overuse injuries. Integral Strength also builds up in intensity over the course of the program, so good recovery is key.
Additionally, all of the programs have different goals and focus on different skills. We think it's best to really focus on mastering one program at a time. Then, when you're finished, you can cycle to the next program and focus there.
Integral Strength is a fantastic building block for developing strength and skill for more challenging programmes, such as our Level One's and Level Two's. If you're unsure of where to start, drop us an email and we'll help you out. ;)
