Weightlifting – APRIL

Posted 31st March 2019 by claudia clarkson

This month sees us following a similar structure to last month’s programming. Percentages are slightly higher each week in comparison to last month. We still have a de-load week in our 3rd week, sharpening up our movement pattern and resting those legs for even bigger numbers in Week 4!! So much fun to be had over the next month.

I have added a few different drills, particularly with a focus on a few pausing in our catch position in both Oly lifts. Getting comfortable in the catch and strengthening our core. Thursdays will always alternate between Snatch and C&J drills, just to spice things up a little bit.

Again, everyone is welcome to the Oly classes, so if you don’t know your numbers, it doesn’t matter, it is about learning the movement and using what you learn in the Crossfit classes.

Looking forward to coaching you all over the coming month and just having a right old laugh!

Peace Out

Crossfit Program – 01/04/2019 to 07/04/19

Crossfit

Welcome to April, yes, we’re a quarter of the way there already. With a new month will bring some new strength and a slight change in the CrossFit programming, as always. A few things to note about this month will be in further inclusion of the major lifts and also some set structure or the energy system days. Wednesdays will be a little more challenging and filthy with Sundays sessions being some of the benchmarks and named workouts for those who like to test themselves and get some little notes in those black books. Be sure to look out for these. Always remember to pick and choose your battles as we need to make sure that we keep our efforts are kept in check. We aren’t built to go hammer and tongs every day. We provide you with a program that has it’s days to kick the so-called bucket and some days that are just moving and keeping things ticking over. We will give you the information, it’s your chance to learn. Enjoy the month!

This is an advanced class. The main lifts are with barbells. You must know how to perform these movements without instruction and be confident in holding form whilst under fatigue. Other than that, all are welcome!
