  • The Benefits of Time Under Tension Training

    The Benefits of Time Under Tension Training

    The Benefits of Time Under Tension Training Have you ever hit a wall in your strength training progression? Have you been bench pressing the same weight for months? Years? Maybe it’s time to incorporate a new method of training, time under tension. Time under tension, or TUT for short, is the amount of time that a muscle or a group of muscles is under stress. Muscles under stress for long periods of time will have greater muscle fiber recruitment resulting in muscle growth. Slow vs Fast The two most common methods of performing reps to an exercise are slow and controlled or fast and explosive. Each method has value. A controlled slower tempo elicits a lower risk of injury as well ....

    Check Out Our New BFP Athlete of the Month!!!

    This month I wanted to give a shout out to Jack MacDonald for being the athlete of the month at BFP! Jack has attended a few of your summer youth camps in the past, but he is now gearing up to head into high school. He has been training consistently this year and has shown some serious improvement with his speed work and lifting. Jack is a hard worker and gets his workout done without me ever getting onto him. He is super coachable and has a good athletic skill set. He currently plays hockey in Wilmington, but I would bet he would be a good athlete at any sport he participated in! His mom, Anne MacDonald also works out at BFP and is setting a great example for Jack on maintaining ....

  • BFP Running Guide

    BFP Running Guide

    Running is defined as the “fastest” means for an animal to move on foot! This complex and coordinated process we call running, involves the entire body! When running, there are two systems that are primarily used: aerobic (oxidative) energy system and anaerobic (anaerobic) energy system. The aerobic energy system is typically used for any form of physical activity that lasts longer than two minutes. For example, a distance runner or long-distance cycler. The anaerobic energy system is typically used for quick, explosive bouts of activity. A great example of an anaerobic exercise is sprinting! Now that we understand the different energy systems that will be primarily used when ....

  • Race Day Readiness Pt. 2

    Race Day Readiness Pt. 2

    Race Day Nutrition One would hope that your nutrition is fairly healthy in general, given the amount of time and effort that goes into training for a Spartan Race. In general, you should focus on lots of whole foods, lots of lean proteins, very few processed foods and sugars, and very little alcohol consumption. Carb Loading What is carb loading? Is it necessary? In general, if you are running a Sprint (3.1 miles + 20 obstacles) or a Super (6.2 miles + 25 obstacles), you shouldn’t need to carb load unless you are planning to run both races in a single weekend. Carb loading becomes necessary when you plan to run the Beast (13.1 ....

    Race Day Readiness - Spartan SGX at BFP

    RACE DAY READINESS PART 1 - GEAR If you’re like me, you have a million questions and anxieties about what to bring, wear, eat, and do for a Spartan Race. So I thought I’d do my best to answer as many frequently asked pre-race questions as I could. What started as a half page blog quickly turned into several pages of advice, tips, and tricks that I have picked up over the past years and through my SGX training. So we decided to split my blog into parts. In this part, we’ll talk about race day gear. Before we get started, let me say, you can race in anything. You do not need to spend an exorbitant amount of money on gear. I showed up to my first Spartan ....
