The warrior has returned

Rowing towards the north west Reading The warrior has returned 2 minutes Next Crewroom is on tour!

Friend and high-performance coach, Paul Gascoyne, has returned to Crewroom on a Saturday morning to put budding warriors through their paces with a cross training session that will get the heart pumping and those calories burning.

Paul is a competitive triathlete, seven-times Ironman, Xterra competitor and Adventure Racer. All this makes him the perfect host for Warrior training here at the Crewroom Hub on Putney Embankment.

Sessions run from 9.30 – 10.30am every Saturday, newcomers get a free taster session and it’s £7 thereafter.

Warrior training, also known as Agoge training, is so called because it was used by Spartan warriors to prepare for the battlefield, and it is a mixture of bodyweight exercises and running.

Participants complete 10 reps of an exercise (which may be Kettlebells, Clubells, Gym Rings or Battleropes), then run 1km. The next round is a further 10 reps of the first exercise and a new exercise, then you run 1km again. You add one exercise each time and keep running the 1k after each group. In short 1 exercise 10 reps 1 run, 2 exercises 10 reps of each, 1 run, 3 exercises 10 reps of each 1 run and onwards until you finally complete 10 reps of all 6 exercises and finish with a run!

“This training gives you a good functional base, plus it’s perfect for all sports. It will make you fit and less prone to injury,” explains Paul.
