At MADabolic Inc. we design every workout based on a one of a kind system created in-house. Each of these workouts are built around 5 unique movement categories, 3 specific interval designs and are then applied to our proprietary programmed template. All exclusive to MADabolic Inc. Every choice and every thought has a specific place in our program. MADabolic Inc. is the perfect blend of science and experience.
The 5 Functions of MADness
Primal, these movement patterns were given to us at birth. The ability to jump, hop, push, pull, plank and crawl are all crucial in ones #MADlifestyle and also in our program. Although these may be viewed as basic, these challenging and at times animalistic traits translate perfect in everyday life and everyday fitness. Mobility driven and body weight by nature, this category allows us to bring the playground back into training.
Moving weight and/or moving objects with the primary intention being speed and power. In this category we use a variety of tools to challenge these goals. You can expect to see Medicine Balls, Battle Ropes, Kettle Bells and Sledgehammers in this dynamic grouping. Exercises in this category serve a specific purpose and deliver maximum results.
Strength + Stability
Durable, strong and stable. In this category we cycle through movements that involve establishing strength through motion. This category often involves carrying heavy loads over long distances. You will be challenged to maintain a strong posture while working through demanding and at times awkward positions, a crucial element to any fitness program. This category could be described as “Resilience by way of Strength”. We also love to get creative, adding endless variations and unique spins to old classics. The more awkward the better.
Rotational Force (aka Boxing)
The ability to generate force while rotating or generating force because of rotation. We consider this to be a very important and often overlooked function of fitness. In our program we found that boxing is the perfect way to translate this function. Even though boxing has an intense point of impact there is also certain grace about it.
Everything from short, intense bursts of cardiovascular activity to a sustained effort and/or deliberate pace. In this category we use Concept 2 Rowers, Concept 2 Skiergs, UltraSlide Slide Boards, Airdyne Bikes and basic, old school, suicide sprints to help build this Anaerobic Threshold. What is this you may ask? Simple, its your pace and how well you recover at that pace. Overtime we strive to build this individual pace which eventually will translate into a better cardiovascular system and threshold. More often than not this category will dictate the intensity of your overall workout.
THE M.A.D. THEORY
The movements in this category feed off one another causing a natural born athletic chaos we often pride ourselves on. In these intervals you can expect non stop action, and a consistent pace, lead by a consistent intensity. The intervals in this group are often a crowd pleasers, providing a feel of accomplishment fueled by sweat.
“Speed and Power” is the only way to sum up the theme of the intervals in this category. A controlled maximum effort will be the focus. You will experience explosive and dynamic movements matched by cardiovascular outputs which are all designed to push your anaerobic threshold. When approached with the right mindset, this category arguably holds the toughest intervals in our program.
Durable, strong and stable. This is the sole purpose of this category. In these intervals you will experience a slower and more deliberate pace that often utilizes awkward equipment and non traditional movement patterns. The end goal is to attack these demands while maintaining a strong and stable posture. The timed element focuses on longer intervals which are more grueling by nature. These work loads are both physically and mentally challenging adding a much needed balance to your #MADlifestyle.
