The elegance of CrossFit: Simple & Effective
Okay peeps it is time to push on and bring all the different modalities of CrossFit together. A quick reminder of what is CrossFit?
CrossFit is Functional:
CrossFit will transform the way you think about fitness. It will do this by exposing you to functional movements. Functional movements in the gym are those that replicate movement in real life or sport. For example, nearly every day in life, you bend over and pick something up.
CrossFit is for Everyone:
CrossFit is an effective way to get fit. Anyone can do it. All the movements we do in CrossFit are universal in their ability to improve your performance. The workouts are structured so both beginners and experienced athletes can train safely and effectively. For a beginner we often reduce the total reps, weight, rounds or distance, or eliminate the clock. For more advanced athletes we also provide scaling up options.
CrossFit’s definition of fitness, being functionally capable across a broad array of fitness related skills is of primary importance. These skills include strength, flexibility, endurance, stamina, speed, power, agility, balance, coordination and accuracy. Any athlete from any sport can use CrossFit as a training method, and return to their sport better, faster, and stronger.
Lifting and Gymnastics coming together
Starting on Monday the next phase of the cycle will be bringing a broad array of functional movements together. That means we will be changing some of the workout formats to get more skill work in that will get you going with double unders, kipping pull ups & ring dips and ofcourse (Olympic) lifts. The program is focused on broadening your strength base and at same time work on your conditioning. There will be short & sharp workouts but also some classic couplets & chippers. There even might be a visit from a Hero or a Girl!
We hope you have enjoyed the ABS Challenge and surely you will be reaping the benefits. Next Challenge will be "hanging on the bar" starting next Monday. More details will be posted later this week.
