Thursday July 4th - One Class at 9am Friday July 5th - Crossfit Classes at 8am, 9am, and 10am (NO REDLINE) Saturday - Normal
CFT Lift Off - Saturday July 20th (8-10am)
Super Informal Olympic Weightlifting Meet
In place of a normal class, you'll have the opportunity to flex your 1 Rep Max muscles.
The RULES are simple:
1 men's bar and 1 women's bar.
When the weight is at your liking, step up and take your attempt. You only get 3, so use them wisely!
The first hour (8-9am) will be dedicated to the task of getting the bar from the ground to the overhead position in one motion aka The Snatch!
During the second hour (9-10am), the objective is the same, however you must stop at the shoulders on your way up overhead aka The Clean and Jerk!
There will most likely be beer, loud music, and your most adoring fans!
MOBILITY with JEN - Coming end of July
We are adding a new offering to our class schedule.
Mobility with Jen will feature our very own Jen Hauge as your mobility instructor. You'll be taken through a yoga flow focused on moving through some better ranges of motion for your hips, back and shoulders.
The Class will be popping up later this month. If you are interested be on the lookout for more information.
Over the next 6 weeks in class we want you to focus on a few things in particular:
- Lower Body Push (Front Squat): On Monday you had the chance to set a 1RM Front Squat. For the next 6 weeks, we are going to work specific percentages off that number. If you miss a squat day and really want to make it up, ask as coach on one of the later days that week and we'll fit it in for you!
- BENCHMARK Fridays: If you've ever gone to the bathroom at the gym, you've walked by our CFT BENCHMARKS board. This is a fun collection of Physical Feats of Fitness and the top 5 performances in the gym. You'll be seeing these pop up on Fridays over the next 6 weeks.
- Olympic Lifting Technique: at least once a week, there will be an intentional focus on continuing to master the olympic lifts (clean and snatch). There are few fitness related efforts that depend more on technique than the oly lifts.
Virtuosity: Do the common uncommonly well
Another golden oldie from the archives of the Crossfit Journal. Here CrossFit Founder, Greg Glassman, talks about mastering a physical training discipline and the pitfalls along the way. (5 min read time)
"...The novice’s curse is manifested as excessive adornment, silly creativity, weak fundamentals and, ultimately, a marked lack of virtuosity and delayed mastery. If you’ve ever had the opportunity to be taught by the very best in any field you’ve likely been surprised at how simple, how fundamental, how basic the instruction was. The novice’s curse afflicts learner and teacher alike. Physical training is no different..."
