Programming Update

Happy Coach

As I sit here programming your next phase I just wanted to explain the programming focus from the previous weeks.

My main goal for the past few weeks was to improve your movement mechanics in your Squat, Press and Deadlift. 
Using the CrossFit Totals and some benchmark WODs to retest the past 6 weeks of training we have seen an increase in work capacity across a broad time and modal domain.

Although PBs in your lifts are always nice, an improvement in basic mechanics (Squat, Press and Deadlift) opens the door to so many more movements. This has been seen with members achieving PBs in lifts and gymnastic movements through an increase in range of motion and stability within those movements.

It is very easy to lose track of your progress and how far you have come, but as these past 6 weeks have showed us if you stay true and focus on the basic movements your broad fitness will improve.

Massive well done to everyone that has been able to increase their weights within WODs or do the harder gymnastic variation, your hard work is paying off.

We now move into a weightlifting focus using our Olympic lifts to build strength and power whilst still developing coordination and flexibility. 

Just remember we're always working on our Three Headed Monster (Strength, Gymnastics and Engine)

Expect the unexpected but expect to be a sweaty mess at the end of each session...
