Level Up Method
Intelligent fitness programs and progressions for bodyweight, calisthenic, and barbell movements.
Level Up Method
The Level Up Method is a organizational framework to systematically progress people through bodyweight and gymnastics movements. It is the methodology that powers my crossfit programs and progressions.
The Level Up method starts from a high-level all the way down to the micro view for each movement. For example, a primary movement pattern would be inversions.
Within inversion their are foundational movements. Such handstands, handstand push ups, and one-arm handstands. With each foundational movement there five-levels to become proficient. Each of those five also have micro-levels. Each micro-level then has specific programming to help you progress.
As you can imagine, this starts getting pretty complicated when taking into account multiple primary movement patters, programming templates, and mobility.
From 2006 to 2013 I lived and breathed CrossFit. I competed in the CrossFit Games, Regionals, an Open. I competed in Olympic Lifting and Powerlifting. I coached CrossFit full-time. This included group classes, clinics, personal training, and weight loss programs. All this while finishing up an undergrad in Exercise Science. This is also when I built my crossfit programs.
Since 2013, I’ve been in research mode. Figuring things out again. Not coaching. Not earning a full income from fitness. Experimenting. Having fun. Getting injured. Not embracing a single paradigm. Moving away from calling myself an expert. Shedding pretense. Getting coached, not being a coach. Being a beginner again.
It’s 2018 and I’m starting to come out the other end. I’ve learned a lot. I’ve changed my ideas about movement event more. I have a new vision and am building something new. The Level Up Program.
