CrossFit Gymnastics – September 2017

Posted 6th September 2017 by Jenna Fisher

Hippo in tut gif - Sept

Well done for continuing to produce some beautiful strict muscle ups.

When put to a vote it was decided that this journey should continue. The first 15 mins of class will therefore remain allocated to practicing this movement (or an alternative gymnastics movement of your choice). Find a new friend, team up, explore and enjoy. 

The remainder of class has been designed to honour one of our members who completes Murph every Remembrance day. (After this phase perhaps some of you might want to join him?).

The ‘gymnastics’ part of Murph involves 100 pull ups, 200 push ups and 300 air squats.

The next four weeks will be spent learning your body’s strengths and limitations to discover the most efficient way for you to complete this (or an adapted) workload.

Take an interest in yourself and find out how to get the best out.

Well done for making it through the 14, 11, 9 x2. Due to this high volume the focus will lean towards strength for the next month.

This means that you should find yourself a training buddy (hats optional) and learn to spot and encourage. Keep it safe. Achieve your best.
