The Training

On Day 1 of the camp, during the 1st conditioning session, we will asses your current level of flexibility (both passive and active levels), joint mobility, bodyweight strength, kineasthetic awareness and general level of fitness.

Based on these assessments and your feedback during the first session, the group will be split by ability for the gymnastic conditioning and handstand training thereon. We will be able to focus on improving your current strengths and building up your weakness in a targeted manner.

Handstands will focus on building good alignment and a solid free standing handstand first, for those of a higher ability Press Handstands and one arm prep are on the menu.

For the conditioning we will be building upon basic preparation of bodyweight strength as well as utilising complementary weight training drills. For example, for those unable to perform pull ups, beside the use of other bodyweight progressions, we will build the necessary strength using a range of weight training exercises. For those of a higher ability, we will focus on more specific lever movements as well as Rings strength.

Each day will start with a morning movement session outside by the pool before breakfast. After breakfast we’ll head over to the indoor fitness centre for our main 2 hour conditioning session, after which we will break for lunch then relax and recovery by the beach, pool or spa. At 4pm we’ll meet outside either by the pool or on the lawn, for our flexibility and handstand sessions and see the wonderful Algarve sunsets.
