MAST Summer Strength and Conditioning Program
Dear Athletes, Coaches and Parents:
We are (mostly) ready to share the first day of the MAST Summer Strength & Conditioning Program with you. (Mostly because video demonstrations are still uploading using my very, very slow wifi.) We will be posting three S & C workouts plus two aerobic workouts per week in both the @MplsAlpineSki Instagram account and Mpls Alpine on YouTube. Here are two ways you can access the workouts.
I. @Mplsalpineski on Instagram
First, if you were already following MAST and Mark on Instagram, you will already be a follower of @MplsAlpineSki. Luke and I just changed the name. If you are not already following @Mplsalpineski on Instagram, please click this link and follow our page:
The link should prompt you to create an Instagram account if you do not have one already.
II. Mpls Alpine on YouTube
You can also access the MAST Summer S & C workouts through the Mpls Alpine YouTube Channel.
All the information you need (warm-ups, workout exercises and reps, sets, video demonstrations) will be available in a spreadsheet that will be updated weekly. Each workout includes two links to two playlists. The first playlist is the Warm-Up Routine we would like you to use each day before you undertake the workout of the day. The second link takes you to the workout of the day (for instance, "Week 1. Day 1"). So...drum roll please.... here is the link to the MAST Summer Strength and Conditioning spreadsheet.
Note: Use the tabs on the bottom of the spreadsheet to access the five workouts we will be posting each week. We may not get all five workouts posted at the beginning of the week, so check back because we will be updating as needed during the week so that you do not miss any workouts.
III. Registrations for Summer Strength and Conditioning
Attached is a roster of all 39 of you who have registered for the MAST Summer S & C Program as of Sunday, June 14, at 10PM. Thank you for registering. This will allow our captains to find ways to engage with you during the summer. You should be hearing more about what they have planned soon. If you are not registered, here is a link:
Use the roster if you like to set up small workout groups. Small... keep it under 10, preferably smaller than that. Make sure you maintain proper social distancing.
If you have questions, please reach out.
Thanks, and good luck and have fun with this.
PS. Thank you to Luke for all his help figuring out the best social media platforms to use to share all this with you. Just goes to show you, you can teach an old dog new tricks but that doesn't mean he'll like them. You will still be getting long, artful, memorable, entertaining, wise, caring emails from me during the season.
PSS. Welcome back Ella Horgan. So glad you will be joining us from Michigan. You were deeply missed this year. Hope you had a wonderful year even without MAST in your daily life.
PSSS. Welcome to new MAST athletes Will Cherveny, brother of Finn, and Beatrice Moldow, a ninth grader at South next year. The MAST girls have expanded their roster. Yahoo!
