MADabolic Austin


Hey MAD family. Some friends and I are going to do an ornament exchange at the 8:30am Christmas Eve class (tomorrow). Would love for anyone else coming to join. We did a $10 limit on the ornaments or homemade. Funny, pretty, strange, whatever you want, anything goes. Just bring it wrapped and we’ll exchange after class. Going to grab a coffee near by as well. Tis the season!
How MADabolic Austin does Halloween

A new standard in strength & conditioning for the high performing fitness enthusiast.

In a culture saturated with “the next big fitness trend”, consider us renegades. No fads or gimmicks, we simply execute what works : our signature intervals are designed to increase strength, torch body fat, and promote lean athletic muscle. Come channel your inner athlete and see what it’s like to train at the industry’s premier strength and conditioning gym!

MADabolic Inc. is an innovative interval driven strength and endurance program. Everything we do is predetermined, carefully structured, and built to compliment any active lifestyle.

Fear of strength seems to be VERY real in the running world.
“What will the added mass do to my times? Won’t it slow me down? To get better at running, it seems like I should just run more, right?!”
For starters, whether you’re brand new to running or a mileage master, attacking any distance that is challenging for you will require putting in the miles. But, this doesn’t need to come with the sacrifice of cross training.
Here’s WHY strength training may favorably impact your running goals:
✅Heightened balance and coordination (important for stride efficiency)
✅Improved speed and power (consider this in relation to varying terrains and hills)
✅Improved VO2 max
✅Lessened muscular fatigue over long distances
✅Injury prevention and improved recovery through stronger muscles and connective tissue
✅Improved bone health and joint protection

Do your workouts consist of always going 100mph with minimal rest for 60mins+?
Neat-o, Karen.

Why not try pumping the brakes, focusing on what matters, and start playing the long game.
Overtraining is real. If you're always going full tilt, it's only a matter of time until that ride comes to a hard stop.

Enter: Durability Days
Expect a gritty selection of weighted carries, primal mobility and unilateral stability work that will force a slow, methodical grind to match a lengthier 3:1 work to rest period.

Don't be like Karen... Train smarter.

Ok, ok... We hear you. "More bear crawls! Give us more bear crawls!"
FINE already. We'll give you what you want. Sheesh!

The next two weeks will allow you to get your grind on via a couple of Durability-focused weeks.

Appearing on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday in the coming weeks, here's what you can expect:

DURABILITY (80% effort) – a slower pace that challenges you to maintain proper mechanics
through a longer, sustained effort. A 3:1 work to [COMPLETE] rest ratio.

If you're new to the program, or if you've yet to start, these days set us apart from the pack. Be sure to clock some time in here!

You don't need all the bands, balls, bells, and whistles. More often than not, the simplest of movements prove to be the most humbling.

Leave the gimmicks and false promises for the 3am infomercials.
Come start training with a purpose.

It’s time to look into your MADabolic app and check your attendance. Give yourself a reality check. Are you REALLY hitting your targeted number if sessions per week?!? We can’t emphasize how important it is to be consistent!! It will drastically impact your results missing that class or two per week.

Some other top priorities to see the best results:

➡️Nutrition!!!! Find something you can stick with that properly fuels your body.

➡️Perfecting your form. It’s imperative you do this. Otherwise you will put a ceiling in your results. You might need to stay a little lighter in the beginning to get the skills down.

➡️After you’ve perfected your form, safely progress yourself up in weights. If you impose greater demands on your body it will adapt. #facts

➡️Get your splits down on the Ergs. Again, to get your splits as low as possible, you have to perfect your form. Know your damper settings, know your stroke rates and push to get better each time. -You have to find it in yourself to go 100%. If you are coming off a cardio machine after pushing 100% and you're not doubled over, it wasn’t your 100%. #MoreFacts

➡️WORK FOR THE FULL TIME!!!! We are completely based off work to rest ratios. They are 1:1, 2:1, 3:1. If you take just 5 seconds off it can throw these numbers off in a big way.


"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat. "We’re all MAD here. I’m MAD. You’re MAD."

“You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”

Sunday's humbling movement brought to you by... Overhead Plate Step-Ups.


Life is not a marathon. It’s a series of peaks and valleys. It can be both an uphill climb and a downhill sprint. Life is an interval. Train accordingly!

Strength is our No. 1 priority.

Come learn how to build strength and how to do it safely.

"The full squat is not only safe for the knees, it is the best exercise for knee health you can do. Furthermore, the “deep” squat (hips below the level of the knees) is an anatomically normal position for the human body. It is used as a resting position for millions of people everywhere, and they squat into it and squat out of it every time.
If you look at the knees and hips for a second, you’ll notice that they seem suspiciously well-adapted to doing this very thing. Infants and children squat down below parallel all the time, and this should indicate to the thinking person that there is nothing inherently harmful in assuming this anatomically-normal position.
The fact that you haven't been squatting is no reason to seek justification for not having done so." - Mark Rippetoe

In other words, the only way to get better at squatting is to squat well and squat often. Good news... You'll find plenty of squatting in the MADhouse!!! 👍👍

It takes a hell of a lot of focus & determination to hit your max target numbers for 60 seconds.

Were you able to do it?

Yup. Still sore.

The path to results is pretty easy as long as you're consistent. That’s it.

Some keys to even better results:
- listen to your trainers' cues
- work for the entire time
- prioritize quality of movement vs quantity
- fuel your body with the FREE nutritional blueprint (available on our website)

It ain't rocket surgery.

Body Saws for the win, amirite??!!

Let’s talk about flexible macro tracking!

This is when you focus ONLY on hitting your overall calorie and protein goals, and allowing your carbs and fats to shake out more flexibly (within the scope of your calorie goal).
With this strategy, the two most important components of your macros are managed (total energy balance + muscle-supporting protein), and you can enjoy a little more breathing room with your fats and carbs.

This can be a very beneficial approach for those of you who may be newer to macro-tracking and feel a little overwhelmed with all the moving parts of the Blueprint.

If this is you, we recommend starting out with this flexible tracking strategy until you feel comfortable nailing your calorie and protein targets. Once you’re a pro in those areas, you can easily upgrade your focus to include the specific carb and fat goals that your blueprint suggests!

Not this year MADones..DON’T QUIT 🚫 ⁣⁣
Research conducted by @strava determined that today, January 19th, is the day you are most likely to drop your New Year’s resolutions. Here are some trends @strava found to help you stay strong past “Quitter’s Day."

✔️ Club members (like those at @madaustintx) are 46% more active

✔️ Working out with friends leads to 22% more activity ⁣⁣

✔️ Among athletes who set goals (I.e. sticking to our MAD Protocol), 92% were still active 10 months later ⁣⁣
So, stick with us, workout with friends, and set goals. 2020 is your year!

The Nutrition Blueprint encourages macro-tracking…but WTF is a macro?
“Macros” refers to the 3 macronutrients that comprise everything we eat:
🥩 PROTEIN - the primary component of pretty much everything. Adequate protein consumption is vital in preserving muscle, organ, and all-around cellular health. When training regularly at MAD, maintaining a high and steady protein intake in both repairing your muscle tissue and building upon it.
🥨 CARBOHYDRATES - we need ‘em. MAD’s signature intervals are a glycolytic exercise modality (translation: a training style that demands glycogen - aka carbs that are stored in your muscles and liver and serve as the primary source of fuel while we train). In addition to enabling a well-balanced diet, eating enough carbs is necessary so you can preserve and build muscle/strength.
🥑 FAT - dietary fat plays an important role in nutrient absorption, hormonal balance, brain health, and a hell of a lot more. It’s also the most energy-dense macronutrient, coming in at 9 calories per gram (whereas protein and carbs each carry 4 calories per gram).

Slow it down & Grind out.

MyFitnessPal, Cronometer, or MyMacros+ are good options. Deactivate any exercise-tracking features (as the Blueprint already accounts for your activity).

Helps gauge portions and is the best way to ensure accuracy when prepping food/meals yourself. We prefer weighing vs. measuring (grams/ounces vs. cups) to eliminate margins of error and tracking under-estimations.

These include: bi-weekly or monthly photos; body composition assessments (ex: InBody, BodPod, DEXA); and biofeedback (pay attention to sleep, energy, mood, and performance). 4. FACEBOOK GROUP
