New Class! StrongCon

Posted 15th October 2019 by Jenna Fisher

StrongCon is a new class that will be starting on Monday 4th November.

The class will be half strength and half conditioning. Think barbell club meets metcon.

The weightlifting element will be a scale-up from regular metcon by replacing dumbbells with barbells for the main lifts*. This will give you the opportunity to add some weight to your squat, deadlift, bench press and overhead press. (*All movements will be fully taught to any beginners and scales will be given where necessary). This will be followed by accessory exercises with dumbbells and cables for stability and joint health.

The conditioning element will be traditional metcon: assault bike, rower, running, ski erg, sled pushing and so on.

The classes will be programmed and published on the blog at the start of each cycle.

 

How could this class benefit me? A few examples: 

-Beginners can learn movement patterns in more detail than in Metcon classes.

-Metcon-only members can progress to a barbell without the complication of learning the highly technical lifts required for CrossFit. (StrongCon will be included in metcon-only memberships).

-Barbell Club members can add some fitness without losing the gains.

-CrossFitters can get that extra chest and arms day without losing the metcon fix.
