Crossfit Program -9th January – 15th January 2023

Posted 8th January 2023 by Geoff Stewart

Week 1.

A new training plan. It’s time for a new plan and we are going in Hot. As with all the new training programs I crack in with the usual blurb about Momentum Being a GPP program, General physical preparedness. Which in layperson terms means.  “GPP is intended to provide balanced physical conditioning in endurance, strength, speed, flexibility, and other basic factors of fitness.”  with that said you’ll be lifting weights, jumping on stuff, throwing things, hitting some cardio and doing some CrossFit gymnastics you’ll be getting hot and sweaty but always safely and with fun.

 

A little bit of detail. You’ll start your basic lifts building with an adaption period, lower sets higher reps into a more intensification period, higher set lower reps and hunting out those strength and muscle gains. Your Olympic lifting will start will a good mix of technical drills and lower percentages lifts for your main sets to make sure we are drilling in that form and getting you ready for the juicier stuff coming later.  All the above will be offset with a good mix of accessory work to make sure the structural balance and pre-hab bases are covered.  We will be looking to put in some longer stints on your engine work to build that breathing capacity as well as mixing in skills but as always having some fun, enjoying your training and making safe steady progress. Bring on the gains.
