Reviews from you

Since working with Aaron Slusher at Vision MMA, I’ve been not only able to lose weight at an astonishing rate, but also have been able to increase my strength, bolster my endurance, and improve my diet. I would recommend Aaron and Achieve Peak Performance to anybody who is serious about achieving results!

Matt Froehle

Aaron is the absolute BEST! He puts in the time and effort to make sure his clients achieve the results they want. With his guidance I’ve lost 100 lbs and kept it off for over a year. Size 18 to a lean and mean 2/4.

Ashley Schultz

Never had the opportunity to be apart of something like this before and to watch it grow as much as what it has and be involved an part of the team is truly an honor thanx Aaron

Tim "Ikon" Curtis

Since working with Aaron for my mma fights and grappling competitions I've noticed a tremendous improvement in my ability to push harder for longer and my ability to recover in a short time has had a huge improvement as well. If you're an athlete looking for a performance coach, I highly recommend working with Aaron and APP!

    Even without the gym, there are ways to help maintain your strength while improving your conditioning at the same time. Tempo lifting is the best method for this, because you need very little resistance for it to work.⁣

    The key reason for this is the speed and cadence. Tempo lifting is slow: two seconds up, two seconds down. Don't pause at any part of the rep.⁣

    This slow speed and lack of any pause lead to constant tension and add an additional load to your working muscles. ⁣

    What exercises can you use? ⁣

    For the upper body, simple bodyweight tempo push-ups are far more challenging than most people expect.⁣

    For pulling, you can use any sort of bar, or even a strong tree branch at the right height, for inverted rows. If you have any sort of resistance band, you can also add other tempo exercises like pull-aparts.⁣

    For the lower body, the easiest way to get the job done is with single-leg squats and lunges. If you have a training partner who you’re stuck in the house with, you can add manual resistance for leg curls and other hamstring exercises.
    ...

    Last but most definitely not least, this model is for those in the upper age bracket!

    You can see the focus shifting from more time in the "get some" zone, to most time in the warm-up and recovery zone.
    If some done with correct technique, there is still plenty of room for full body activation in the 1st and 3rd zones. it may just take a different form than the traditional heavy lifts we are use to. Look for examples this weekend!

    If you fall in this age group, notice that it looks pretty similar to the workout for someone a little younger!

    The most noticeable changes fall in the timing category. You will definitely still be able to hit some of the higher level exercise, however there is an added importance shown to the warm up and cool down periods.

    Check out this breakdown of time spent during each activity for someone on the younger side!

    Things to note:
    -Just because the warmup is shorter, Does not make it any less important!
    -Same with the cool down, do it. -You can fit a lot of really solid work in the "Get Some" block, but in order to do that, you need to properly fuel and rest your body. The other 23 hours matter just as much!

    Sometimes, feeling good involves throwing large objects around with considerable force!

    How we move changes how our muscles fire - new post coming to @theedgeu website soon! NBA, MLB, NFL and college staffs all using the website for their continuing education! Less than a dollar a day sign up now .
    EMG “Electromyography” is a way we can measure the electrical communication our muscles receive from our brain. How and what kind of exercises we perform can change how this electrical communication is sent. .
    .
    There are lots of variations of this communication, but the easiest way to think of it is in terms of “bursts” versus “ramp”. .
    .
    Burst EMG activity occurs with movements that require rapid rates of force development, ballistic actions (like jumping or throwing). These are most common in lots of prime movers in sporting actions - like your gastroc during jumping. The timing and firing of these bursts ultimately control movement .
    .
    A ramp contraction is easiest to think about in terms of a heavy deadlift (in my opinion). EMG, rate of force development are produced in a “controlled” ramping - just like how you first take the slack out of the bar and slowly apply more and more force (obviously not too slowly) to the bar until it lifts. In other words, you don’t jerk it off the floor. .
    .
    Both actions have the ability to recruit high threshold motor units and muscle fibers. Both have a time and place in training, but both are different in nature. .
    .
    Burst like activities might be deemed more “sport specific” by some coaches and often are rapid, plyometric like movements. On the other hand ramp like contractions are seen in traditional resistance training exercises like a normal tempo squat and might occur in the less sport specific movements (working on hypertrophy or strength). .
    This is obviously a little over simplified due to the word count limit on Instagram, but hopefully it helps 👍
