Metcon

Make sure you are ready and warm for both movements. Start at about 50-60% effort (not 1RM) and start to CLIMB! I am only looking for a heavy single today on the 1 reps, but if you are feeling good you can go for the max effort. Your goal is no failed lifts today.

Tuesday 28/08/18

Weightlifting

Single Arm DB/KB Push Press (4 x 10 )

Try not to lean left or right. Rather keep your core as tight as possible and fight to stay center. Do a shallow dip and drive the DB up like you would with a barbell push press. Start with your weaker arm and try to get 10 reps. Match however many you got on the other side.

immediately following your set, complete a 1min. plank hold on your hands with a plate on your back.

Rest 1min. and repeat for 4 Rounds. (Warm up sets on the press do NOT count)

I want to stress the hard factor on this. If you choose one of these weights and begin to fail, then scale it to 2s, don't take the weight off. If you must go lighter, that's fine, just make it something challenging.

I Am Too Unfit to Do CrossFit

I Am Too Unfit to Do CrossFit

CrossFit has gained many misconceptions over the years. A popular one is thinking you are not fit enough to start and will struggle to keep up in class if you do.

But when people realise CrossFit is for them, regardless of their current fitness levels, they begin on a road to a happier, healthier, fitter, stronger and more balanced lifestyle.

One of our members (Nicky) Joined us well over a year ago now. Nicky was dragged down to the gym by one of her friends and a great member of ours.
