Crossfit hackney training plan 2018

Posted 2nd January 2018 by Geoff Stewart


So the first week of 2018 is with us and resolutions and goals are being set. As some of our longer serving members are aware, we tend to crack on about goals, targets and personal bests a little bit too often. Remember SMART goals – specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timed. If you want some sound advice or just to air some thoughts on goals for 2018, please don’t be afraid to chat to your coaches, we are a knowledgeable bunch and have been round the block more times than a summer metcon class.

So, what do we have in store for you in 2018? Before we get to anything specific, just a quick reminder that we follow a GPP (general physical preparedness) program. This means that we follow the CF mothership’s doctrine of constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement. And on a food front greens, lean meats, nuts and seeds, little starch, and no sugar. It’s pretty simple in concept. We like to put our own flavours in there and draw from our experience and knowledge and that of our great team to give you a world class, super effective and fun training experience.

And so to the training plan. We are dividing the year up into training blocks of varied lengths (8 weeks and 6 weeks) and varied focusses: Olympic lifting, long mono-structural, functional body building and short mono-structural. We are starting with an 8 week block with an Olympic lifting focus (cleans and pressing)/ We will then be moving into a 6 week block of short mono-structural conditioning then we will flip flop through the year with longer and shorter phases with varied focusses. Regardless of what the phase focus may be, it doesn’t mean we will let all the other component parts of the program slip – there will always be a mix of strength (basic lifting), skill (gymnastic style movements), breathing (WODs) and fun in all our sessions.

It’s time to focus, put the fork down, get your ass off the couch and plan you fitness dominance now.
