Chaos is your home – Renegade X

Chaos is your home

When I introduced chaos and imperfection training to the sport training field it was, shall we say, not received well. For the most part I believe it was considered absolute nonsense in a field that was spraying weight machines with silicone so they could lift a greater amount of weight but as time prevailed and the hardware filled my trophy case those ‘in the know’ provided me the reigns to lead athletes to championship which of-course utilised chaos training.

Unfortunately, as I would learn with time, as you spoke of such to the sport and exercise sector many would see it as an opportunity to ‘sell’ products and services. This has completely distorted its true benefit and though many an expensive training tool as been sold, athletes have very rarely enjoyed its full benefits.

Chaos training and imperfection training need not be grandiose approaches but is instead a direct relationship to athletic needs in sporting competition. Whether you are carrying logs, hoisted on your shoulders, over undulating terrain or have your arms full with groceries, it is remarkably similar, with the only difference being the level of ability.

Imperfection training, which includes non-conforming objects, has naturally has been around since the dawn of exercise and rooted in manual labour, but long since pushed aside with the mass production of weights and other mediums. This is only naturally but it forever lost the ‘real-world’ or ‘sport’ carryover as a perfect training condition merely prepares an individual for the sterile walls of a gymnasium. The carryover from gym floor to sporting arena will vary considerably but ultimately, as many studies have proven of who wins ‘testing day’ awards, is extremely low.

Simply and to the point, all active Renegade X sessions are designed with elements of chaos and imperfection work. This will vary from modest amounts at the beginning to highly volatile ‘storms’ in advanced stages but ultimately ‘chaos is our home’.
