Apologies on the lack of posts recently. Sometime hard to grab the time to get it online. Also we are now just over 14 weeks out from the Allstars competition.
So our focus will very much have that in mind. Strength can be gained by then but must start soon otherwise it won’t be there. We will post a fair bit of strength that will follow a formula to ensure we get a go at the major lifts each week. If you are interested in this make sure you keep an eye.
There will also be regular Oly practice to get volume & strength built into your technique. This is not to be rushed or force fed. You cannot force an extra 25+ kg on to your snatch or c&J overnight so let it progress naturally.
And lets not forget the Gymnastics work. Very often people only concentrate on how much can they push this or pull that but forgot the very virtuosity that CF was built on. You need bodyweight strength no question about it. you don’t want to turn up on a comp weekend squatting the world but not be able to bust out some basic gymnastic reps now do you???
We should point out too that even if you’re not in the comp we still encourage you to follow too. After all this WILL improve your CrossFitness! 🙂
As always please listen to your body. If it ain’t on, it ain’t on!! rest and mobilise!
