🤳 @crossfitkettlebell … Here's an example of some strength work you can put into play with your kettlebells using a "dead stop" approach. The following series is posted on the training page today. . 3 x 3 DxKB dead stop full cleans + 150-foot sandbag carry . We have referenced the "dead" position before. In a "dead" clean or snatch, the bell comes from the ground in a vertical path before the athlete utilizes a cross-body directional pull to guide it into position. . The difference between a "dead stop" and a "dead" style lift is the use of the backswing. The bell or bells will begin in the starting position before being hiked up into the hinge of the backswing. This is essentially a simple traditional start. The only difference is, the athlete won't continue to cycle the reps directly into the back swing. Instead each new rep will begin from the ground. . Think about this as being similar to having to reset on each rep of a set of deadlifts instead of performing them as touch and go. . Now go get some heavy bells and feel the difference for yourself. . #SlangIron #CrossFitKettlebell#CrossFitTraining #CrossFit#KettlebellTraining Demo: @hoffdawg53
🤳 @crossfit ・・・ Linda was first featured on CrossFit.com on July 5, 2003, and then was officially introduced as a benchmark workout four months later. It has been programmed a total of 31 times on CrossFit.com. - Benchmark workouts serve to measure and benchmark your performance and improvements though repeated, irregular, appearances in the “Workout of the Day”. - Linda is one of the six workouts at the 2018 CrossFit Regionals and features deadlifts, bench presses and cleans. - 📷 @rxdarkroom | #SouthRegional | #CrossFit @colleenfotsch @crossfitgames
Weight loss. Strength. Speed. Increased insulin sensitivity. Better Sleep. - No matter what the goal is, intensity will get you there the fastest. It is the independent variable most commonly associated with maximizing the rate of return for favorable adaptation to exercise. This means that performing functional movements, hitting workouts hard, sprinting, lifting heavy weights and continuously challenging yourself are the keys to getting results. - Functional movements use more muscles, move longer distances and have the potential to lift greater loads. Because of this, they produce more power, and power is equal to intensity. So there it is. Problem solved. Perform constantly varied, functional movements at high intensity and enjoy your success. —Adapted from the Level 1 Training Guide … @crossfit @amalleolo #CrossFit #CrossFitTraining
What is the athlete’s: ✔️Athletic capacity ✔️Loading relative to their 1RM ✔️Faulty position ✔️Assigned task? . These are the questions that help us determine how to coach, and when to slow people down, speed them up, or decrease/increase the weight. Sometimes, just looking at the fault isn’t enough. . Consider this scenario: Johnny, who has been CrossFitting for 6 months, is in the middle of a heavy deadlifting day. He is approaching a 5-rep max. Rep 1 looks pretty good. On rep 2, the knees initiate the return, the barbell shifts slightly away from the body, and the lower back starts to round as he completes rep 3. . How would you coach this athlete, based on the the factors presented above? ... @crossfit #CrossFit #CrossFitTraining
🤳 @crossfitgames ・・・ The muscle-up is astonishingly difficult to perform, unrivaled in building upper-body strength, a critical survival skill, and most amazingly of all, virtually unknown. - This movement gets you from under things to on them. Let your imagination run. - Though containing a pull-up and a dip, its potency is due to neither. The heart of the muscle-up is the transition from pull-up to dip—the agonizing moment when you don’t know if you’re above or below. - That moment—the transition—can last from fractions to dozens of seconds. At low, deliberate speeds, the muscle-up takes a toll physically and psychologically that can only be justified by the benefit. No other movement can deliver the same upper-body strength. Period. - “The Muscle-up,” by Greg Glassman was published November, 2002 in the CrossFit Journal. Journal.CrossFit.com - @hanne_._nilsen 🇳🇴 • #EuropeRegional • #CrossFitGames 📷 @iko_pb
The complexity and challenges associated with training a masters athlete arise because no two athletes are the same. Grouping everyone over 40 years of age into the same category is not particularly helpful as situational and lifestyle factors create a lot variability. Age by itself is a poor way to define a masters athlete. Masters athletes can best be assessed through four key variables that interact and, when understood, allow the trainer to make effective coaching decisions specific to the individual. By assessing the interaction of these four variables, we can define an archetype for the athlete. . ✔️Competitive Orientation: Is the athlete motivated by competition or general wellness? ✔️Age: How old is the athlete? Are they 40-54 or 55+? ✔️Fitness Level: Are they currently active or inactive? What is their exercise history? ✔️ Injury State: Any medical conditions or injuries either current or past that need to be considered? - Adapted from the CrossFit Masters Training Guide … To find a Masters Course near you, visit training.crossfit.com. … 📷: Krista Martin …. @crossfit @matt.swift #CrossFit #CrossFitTraining
Lesson plan for WOD 180519. Swipe left for details and strategy tips from Competitor’s Course Trainer, Austin Malleolo (@amalleolo). . All sections of the class are coach led. This couplet includes a unique twist by utilizing mixed loads to vary the stimulus within the workout. The snatch can be performed as a power snatch or squat snatch. The initial 2 rounds include moderate to moderately heavy loading, which will cause many athletes to stay short of a sprint effort to avoid failed reps. The final 2 rounds utilize lighter loads that are intended to be cycled quickly, encouraging athletes to increase the pace to finish the workout. .

Ask any teachers or coaches and most will tell you that children cannot be thought of simply as miniature adults. In order to achieve the goal of developing a lifelong love of fitness in kids, we have to tailor the approach to meet them at their level, not only physically, but also cognitively and emotionally. . How these elements are approached can vary both within and across age groups, which makes training kids an ultimate expression of the infinite scalability of CrossFit. —Adapted for the CrossFit Kids Trainer Guide … @crossfit @crossfitkids #CrossFit #CrossFitTraining #CrossFitKids
