Gymnastics – Feb programming
Hello everyone, as we go into February a new gymnastics phase starts. Here is what to expect for the next couple of months.
CrossFit Gymnastics (PM class): 8 week Handstand phase begins (Feb – Mar)
Gymnastics (AM class): 8 week spine & ring routine phase (Feb – Mar)
Crossfit Gymnastics (Tues & Thurs PM class); Warm ups will be focused on handstand preparation and practice, this will include shoulder mobility, hand balancing and strengthening to help get better at staying still & moving on your hands. The strength section will combine exercises to help with the pull up and the same for the handstand. For those wishing to continue with their ring / bar muscle up practice they can implement it here. The accessory work for the next couple of months will involve abdominal drills & exercises for the handstand.
Gymnastics (Thurs AM class); Mobility will be on improving the ability to move the spine & shoulder blades better and unlocking more strength and movement freedom as a result. The strength work will involve spending time working on various ring routines of choice to help build overall upper body strength and endurance. I will explain and guide you through this section so that you are all comfortable working to your level whether beginner or advanced. To finish off will be accessory work to target small areas that help keep us in one piece.
See below for programming.
