This is my clean break down to try to help some of you that are more visual learners.
Now that the CrossFit opens are coming to a close, a new cycle of the AWOD will be starting this Monday, April 8th. This cycle will be more of a strength bias then most are used to. This will have a lot of Olympic lifting due to the fact it transfers over better to CrossFit and the lifts are more complex than their powerlifting counter parts. It will also go off of 1RM percentages. We will start off by finding your 1RM in most lifts. Contact me (friend me) on facebook ask to join the AWOD group. The AWOD group is a private group that lets me answer any questions you may have about this programing and also modifications if need be.
The AWOD is an advanced program for people who want to compete in the sport of CrossFit, which is quite a bit different than using CrossFit as your daily dose of exercise to get/stay in great shape. You need to have a good foundation on your lifts and have at least six months of CrossFitting under your belt. When you do the AWOD you WILL warm up with the group and make space for the group class. Also the coaches will give you feedback when you ask but you should have a good foundation in your lifts so their focus is on the rest of the class not the AWODers. Also, because the AWOD is a little more of a do it yourself type program, if you have questions or need help please ask any of the coaches. Happy lifting
You take 1000′s of steps every day, there is 720 steps in a 400 m run. Do you walk correctly? Are you hurting your body by just walking wrong? If you can’t answer those questions. Watch this it might help.
“I am not good enough to compete.” “I can’t do that.” I have heard these statements far too often. Everyone is able to compete and if you have ever wanted to do so I would like to talk to you. I like the sport of fitness, CrossFit. I have competed and will again. Am I the best? NO. Did I let that stop me? NO. Niether should you. Unlike years past I will be in a coaching role for those that want to compete. I will help anyone that wants to do so. Right now the AWODs are designed around getting you ready for the CrossFit Opens which start March 6 and will go for about five weeks, more about that later. If you need loving guidance please just let me know. Talk to me or email me at Jeremy@crossfituv.com
The CrossFit Opens are coming soon and it is the time to get ready for them. The CrossFit Opens is the first step to the CrossFit Games, but unlike the CrossFit Games this step is for anyone that want to compete can compete. The Opens is a international weekly competition of one workout a week for about five weeks. Some of the workouts in the past have been: deadlift, push up , and box jump or just burpees, it is varied just like your daily CrossFit workouts.
We as a gym try to make competing fun. Last year we had mini-events to promote the competition environment, so it would be fun for spectators as well as the people competing. Good times were had by all. The next step is Regionals (years pior, some people in our gym have made it to this step on a team and some even qualified as individuals) which narrows the field down to 30 teams and the top 48 male and female in your region. Now I know that sounds like a lot but last year we had 126 teams in our region alone, but the good news is that Crossfit Utah Valley finished 32. The bad news is that we were 2 spots away from going to regionals, which is the goal for this year. I believe our gym is ready and will make it to regionals. But we could always use more help.
CrossfitUV would like as big of a team as we can get. If you have every want to try to compete or just want to give your support in the best way possible, which in my opinion is to compete with others and help push them. Ask what you can do to give you the best chance possible in the opens with CrossfitUV. Email me at Jeremy@crossfituv.com
Putting the muscle up all together. The hips have to come to the rings like we did in part one and you also need a ring dip. The transition in part two. Now you are ready to try to put it all together.
Great stretches for all your tight hip bits.
This is a video with a skill transfer movement. You need to be able to do this to get a muscle up.
One of our new toys. This should answer a couple of questions.
Yes there is a difference in you bottom position of both of these movements.
This Friday night at 6:30
Come hang out with fellow crossfitters. Watch some Ronnie Coleman, “lightweight baby,” Order some pizza, and do some Crossfit stuff (lift some weight, playing around, etc.). This will be a fun time to hang with the guys in the gym. Friends are welcome.
