Great Work Ladies!!


So the open is over and back to business as usual at the box. Everyone did extremely well over the last 5 weeks. Sarah Finishing just outside qualification at 66th and the team so very close just 1 spot out at 31 out of every CrossFit box and entered athlete in europe! If you had said we would do so well we would have been more than pleased with those placings in our first entry to the Open. Having said that being so close but yet so far I’m sure everyone will agree at being gutted not to be going to regionals in Copenhagen!

The little things and a few more reps and a bit more practice of what we suck at and next year we can go that final inch or two. Well Done everyone it has been great at the box for the last 5 weeks onward and upward. Bring that extra focus to the box over the next year and let’s see where that takes us?! Fantastic place to be a part of and thank you guys for making it what it is.

So very close

Movement Standards

Double unders:
Any rope may be used.
Rope must pass under the feet twice.
Only complete reps to be counted, not attempts.

K2E to Pull-ups:
Start at a full hang from thee bar.
Knee’s must make contact with the elbows simultaneously.
Athlete must then return to a fully locked out position at the elbow hip and knee (can pass through during a kip).
Chin must then pass above the horizontal plane of the bar.
If an athlete completes a K2E but ‘misses’ the pullup they do not have to do the K2E again, they may do one pullup to complete the rep.
One rep = one K2E + one pull-up

Bar starts from the hang.
The bar must halt between the knee and hip before starting the first rep and on redrafts of broken sets.
The bar may be caught above a squat a ridden down until the hip crease passes below the knee.
Passes through a full squat (crease of hip below knee) with the bar locked out overhead.
Bar must be moved stood to a position locked out overhead, with hip and knee extended with feet inside shoulders and head neutral.

It’s been a tough but awesome week at the box with a great buzz about the Throwdown WODs. We as coaches have really enjoyed them in our classes and personally as WODs with some very impressive scores to date. Hit up any you missed at open gym tomorrow or in Saturday mornings class 11-12. Love CrossFit Love the competition against others. Keep a look out for the next competition and hopefully a ROAD TRIP in mid February to the London Throwdown with individuals and a team?!
