Our Mission

Horsepower-1.jpg

We have one mission at Horsepower Strength and Conditioning, to build people. I care about one thing, you as a person. I care about helping you become stronger, mentally and physically. I care about helping you reach your goals and making you better when it is time to compete. I care about you feeling good enough to live a strong life, a passionate life, and a life where you will not be broken.

Athletes have choices with their limited time, the time they do have needs to be spent doing the things that it takes to be the very best person/player that they can be. This summer every single High School is going to run a  strength and conditioning program. This summer almost every single football player will sign up for these. These programs are better than doing nothing at all, but in the end you have to ask yourself what are my goals? Are you goals to stand out? Are you goals to improve? Are your goals to move up on the depth chart? To be all conference? To be all state? To get a scholarship? If you want to stand out, you have to be willing to do more than the people you are competing with. You have to be willing to do something different to get bigger results. This is what the HP Football Big Man Training Camp is all about. This program will transform you into a stronger, faster, more skilled, and mentally tougher lineman than you have ever been before.

This program is not your cookie cutter football strength and  conditioning program. This is hands down the best football strength and conditioning program in Minnesota for lineman. The proven results are shown with the athletes that we have trained. Horsepower athletes have played in the NFL and division one football. We are going to do the things that will make you a better lineman. Are sole focus is to build brute strength, quickness, athleticism (Mobility), and toughness.

The Difference – HP Warrior Conditioning

Any person on the planet can make you tired… Period. So what makes the HP Warrior conditioning program different than everybody else? Why does it make you better and not just tired?

  • We train all appropriate energy systems required for competition
    • ATP-PC High Power/Short Duration
    • Glycolytic Moderate Power/Moderate Duration
    • Oxidative Low Power/Long Duration
  • We work all 3 elements of conditioning
    • Speed – Moving fast and being explosive
    • Heavy – Moving heavy weight for a set amount of time or distance (Strongman)
    • Extended – Longer duration
  • We build mental toughness and an unbreakable attitude

We use a progressive system that builds over weeks and years. Every single fight camp goes through 3 phases, with 4 progressive steps within each phase.


 

Here is a look inside one of our conditioning workouts that follows our strength work. This is a workout done in week 10 of a fight camp. (Phase 3, Step 2)

  • 5  Minutes Moving Battle Ropes
  • 60 Second Rest
  • 6x Gassers – 75 Seconds to Run and Rest
  • 60 Second Rest
  • 5 Minutes 15 Scissor Rope Slams + 2 Round Trips on Agility Ladder

Every person is a Warrior, this program will unlock your ability to push through personal limits and grow stronger physically and mentally. You can start this program wherever you are physically. Everything is based on progressions and becoming a little better every single training session. Horsepower is an environment where athletes support other athletes, athletes push other athletes, and every person that is in the gym wants you to succeed. The only way that you fail is by staying in the same place you have always been. The HP Warrior program will not let you stay in that place. The HP Warrior program is 100 percent committed to building people. You can not grow physically without building mental toughness, confidence, and belief in yourself. This program is all about making you the most powerful version of yourself. Progress happens when you push yourself and set new personal limits. The coaching, environment, and program are set up to guarantee that these goals are accomplished. This program will allow you to become a warrior.

The Warrior Program is 3 weekly training sessions over a 12 week period.


 This is what you get:

Pre-testing and Post-testing

Everything we do is measurable and progressive. We want you not only to feel the results but see the results of your hard work.


 

1. Strength Development

We will work with the core lifts that the Warrior program is built around. Clean, Jerk, Snatch, Squat, Deadlift. It is ok if you don’t have experience with these lifts. We will build your lifting technique from the ground up.

2. Speed Development

A Warrior needs to move fast. We will build speed with sprints, change of direction, and plyometrics.

3. Conditioning

We combine sprints, explosive movements, and strongman into a conditioning program that will change you physically and mentally. We have multiple conditioning blueprints that you do each week in order to properly train and maximize all three energy systems. You will become an unbreakable warrior.

What it takes

mikerMike Richman fights his second career fight at 135 pounds vs. Nam Pham at Bellator 131 this Saturday November 15th.

This is what it takes to be one of the best in the world. Mike trains strength and conditioning with me 3x per week, this is an inside look into what he did in one of those workouts.

This was a workout from his first camp moving down a weight class (Previously fought at 145). The goal was simple, keep strength, increase speed and power, and make sure that his work capacity and recovery time where better than ever. He finished the fight with a first round KO. Mission Accomplished.

 The Workout

  • 5×5 Box Jumps – Height
  • 5×10 Box Jumps – Speed
  • 5×20 Lateral Jumps – Speed

  • 5x Sled Sprint/Forward
  • 6x Cone Complex 5, 5, 15
    • Sprint/Sprint
    • Sprint/Back Pedal
    • Around the World
  • 5×300 Yard Shuttles – 105 Seconds Run and Rest


The Sled Sprints were a 15 yard sled drag at 150lbs. release and sprint 20 yards.

We did 5 dragging the sled back words and opening up to the left into a sprint

We did 5 dragging the sled back words and opening up to the right into a sprint

We did 5 sprinting forward with the sled releasing it and continuing to sprint.


 

Cone Complex is Sprint 5 yards, change direction, sprint 5 yards, change direction, sprint through 15 yards. Then we sprint 5 yards, change direction, back pedal 5 yards, change direction, sprint through 15 yards. Then we sprint 5 yards, circle around the cone, and sprint through 15 yards.


 

300 Yard Shuttles done in 25 yard increments. Sprint 25 yards change direction, sprint 25 yards change direction until he covered 300 total yards or 6 round trips.

Testimonial…

I have been a trainer/ coach for the better part of a decade.  I came to Matt Miller to get stronger after I had been a member at a Cross fit facility., and felt that something was lacking in my strength gains!  I could not be more impressed with the culture that he has created in his facility!  His dedication to his athletes and clients, while setting expectations to get better every day are un- matched!  Through his Powerology Programming I have reached and exceeded my personal goals and am stronger then I could have ever imagined!

A few months ago I decided that I would use Powerology to help clients of my own!

The approach of progressive loading and has sent the strength gains for my clients through the roof!  Using this programming and periodization has helped me retain my clients and attract new ones.  I can’t say enough about the programming and the results that occur in my own clients results!

I would highly recommend this programming to any trainer who is looking to train anyone to get stronger, faster, and build more power in any of their clients athletes, to soccer moms.  Matt is a patient coach who is always striving to deliver nothing but the best to his people!

Warrior Conditioning

1476890_10151836616704576_1198354118_n

 

Every Week I will be posting a conditioning workout specifically designed for combat sport athletes. You will get what you put into these workouts. The harder you push the better your conditioning will become. It is better to burn out giving 100 percent effort than to pace yourself through. Push the limit and get better.

The Workout:

Battle Ropes

  • 5 Minutes Continuous Movement – Arms and legs

This means slams, alternating, use a variety of movement so you can push it hard and keep moving the entire 5 minutes. This is what the rope work should look like

Take 60 Second Break

  • Run 4 300 Yard Shuttles 

A 300 yard shuttle is 25 yards down and back 6 times. Give yourself 2 minutes to complete the run and rest before starting the next shuttle.
