Mobility class – September

Posted 24th August 2020 by Anthony Masters

Hello all,

As many know during lockdown mobility classes were running online which eventually moved to tuesday evenings in the park. We have now decided to move these classes back into the gym and will run every tuesday from 6:30pm – 7:30pm. I realise that we have many new members that have recently joined Momentum and so i wanted to briefly explain what the mobility class is about and provide the itinerary for the next month. (more…)

StrongCon – Aug/Sept

Posted by Jenna Fisher

The new StrongCon program begins this week, Tuesday 25th August.

Now that your muscles have got used to training again, the StrongCon workouts will rotate their day as previously done before lockdown.  This means that if you attend this class on Tuesdays, for example, you will do workout 1 for two weeks, then workout 2 for two weeks, and then workout 3 for two weeks. Note your performance in the first week and try to improve it in the second week. You will then have a new workout challenge to overcome the following week.

The workouts and the full rota can be downloaded here:

StrongCon workouts and timetable

For some exercises, alternatives are given so that no-one has to share equipment. With guidance from your coach, you are welcome to choose an appropriate alternative for any movement should you need to for this reason, or due to an injury etc.

The workouts and rota are also provided below:

G.P.P. training program 24th August -30th August 2020.

Posted 23rd August 2020 by Geoff Stewart

How was last week for you?

Another solid week of training coming your way. This week we will be following the same format as week 5 and looking to bed in the basic lifts and Olympic skills with a smorgasbord of breathing and WOD to keep you guessing.

We regularly get asked why we repeated the foundation movements and general lifing patterns for a few weeks. This is to allow you guys to get use to and drill in these movements as well as make some positive adaptions to the loads your lifting and shifting.

Week 6. Embrace.

Monday. Cleans

Tuesday. Squat and Pull

Wednesday. Snatch

Thursday. Other programs

Friday. Deadlift and push

Saturday. Heavy breathing

Sunday. Other programs

G.P.P. training program 17th August -23rd August 2020

Posted 16th August 2020 by Geoff Stewart

Starting off with a huge thanks to all members old and new who have really helped get us back up and running filling the arch with sweat, laughter and in some cases tears and the odd trip to the alley. Thanks for embracing social distancing and cleaning everything they can get their hands on. Moving forward, our current timetable, layout and rules of play will remain the same for at least the next six weeks.

Enough of that let’s talk training. You have a good solid 5 weeks under our ever reducing and firming up waist lines. There have been some highs and lows in terms of training.  The highs being we are training, getting fitter, seeing friends and the lows been unable to get of the toilet, walk up the stairs or put thing back on any shelf above eye level.

Our GPP program over this next block will moving up a notch, as a member said to me last week “we are back in then”. Yes, we are!  As well as covering all the GPP training bases. We will also be looking and checking in with your basic foundation lifts with a focus on squats, deadlifts, pull ups and bench. There is a good amount of BB skill work enough breathing and capacity work to keep all happyish.

Week 5. Let the games begin.

Monday. Cleans

Tuesday. Squat and Pull

Wednesday. Snatch

Thursday. Other programs

Friday. Deadlift and push

Saturday. Heavy breathing

Sunday. Other programs

G.P.P. training program 10th August -16th August 2020

Posted 8th August 2020 by Geoff Stewart

Another great week under our training belts and glad to say that we are getting back in the groove and those welcome back aches and pain seem to have eased up a little.

This week’s training program is very similar to week 2 and 3 with a few twists in there to keep you guessing.  We would like you to focus this week on form over weight as always but taking note of what weight you have on the bar, RPM and calories on the screens and begin to build a mental foundation for our new phase of training.

Week 4. Good luck.

Monday. Cleans

Tuesday. Squat and Pull

Wednesday. Snatch
