There's just nothing better if you want to get yoked and stoked for elk hunting.“Muscle confusion”
I can’t help but laugh everything I hear someone use that phrase.

But everyone needs to remember that to optimize muscle confusion you need to Keep Hammering. These 2 concepts are the top things you can practice to ensure success this fall IF and only IF you add in your Mtn Ops products. Otherwise you're just a truck with no fuel or a Tesla with no charging station.
Flat bill is key to unleashing the confusion. Mtn Ops and spandex also help.I’d just love to hear or read a thesis that explains how it is that muscles, the vast majority of which only perform one single function, can possibly be (or get) confused. Is your quad screaming, “I’m so confused about what it is that I am supposed to be doing even though all I literally do is extend the knee!”
Maybe you have to wear a flat bill hat for muscle confusion to work?

The "science" of the muscle confusion is to train the body in different ways, so that it can never adapt to the the training, which means your training will never “plateau”
You see? NEVER PLATEAU!
You just gotta TRUST THE SCIENCE
Don't shoot the messenger here. P90x has taken the world by storm and could be the cure for Covid too. The science will be settled soon if you just ask an expert.Is that really what the “muscle confusion” argument hinges on? No adaption?
That’s kind of funny considering that adaption is the actual result of training. No adaptation = no progress.
I drag a tire a LOT. Used an old piece of tow strap and a chain to eye bolt to the tire. If on asphalt I weight it. On grass I don't. I usually alternate sprints or running with up to a mile of dragging per workout. Great workout.The best training for hiking around the mountains with a heavy pack is hiking around the mountains with a heavy pack. A friend of a friend swears by dragging a tire behind you around the neighborhood. I bet you would get some funny looks.
@beejwest by "great workout", you mean "death"; right? In all seriousness, I've found little that compares to weighted pack progressions (look up Mike Prevost's ruck plans) and weighted tire drags. They're both miserable and insanely effective.I drag a tire a LOT. Used an old piece of tow strap and a chain to eye bolt to the tire. If on asphalt I weight it. On grass I don't.
