Don’t miss it!
This is the second course of the OCTS course. In this one, you will learn the many training methods that Christian use in with his athletes. Eccentric, concentric, and isometric loading scheme and methods will be covered.
He will give you the precise parameters that he uses as well as when each method is used and with whom.
