workouts for ultimate

Review: The Foundation & F.U.T.U.R.E.

If you haven’t heard of Tim Morrill, you should take a few minutes and familiarize yourself with who he is and what he does. He’s an innovator and has been influencing and changing the way players train for ultimate.

I have been lucky enough to have a look at both of his products  – The Foundation and Future 1.0 and what follows is my review of both products.

The Foundation

Tim is a student of his craft. He doesn’t just teach it but he also learns it. The Foundation is based on the 4 athletic qualities of: Strength, Power, Speed and Agility. He’s taken all of his learning and has outlined how each quality is defined, measured, conventionally trained and how each quality can be trained without implements.

Grip & Wrist Strength Series

Adding in weights as part of your regular workout routine is crucial to being a better ultimate player. In addition to doing power movements like squats and deadlifts, it’s important to add in some balancing work and small muscle work.

Part of that small muscle work deals with wrist and grip strength.

By increasing your grip and wrist strength, you will see 2 main benefits:

  1. In the gym, you will be able to push and pull more weight by having a stronger grip and wrist and you will therefore see more benefits from your workouts.
