The newest members to our Celtic Crossfit Community completed their final On Ramp class this evening and are now fully fledged Celtic Warriors! You will all now have the pleasure of meeting and training with these guys in class and I’m sure you will be looking forward to introducing yourself in true Celtic Crossfit style! I hope our new members enjoy the rest of their first month with us and make the most of learning from and working with our inspiring coaches and members!
You have been a pleasure to induct into our community! Now the real fun begins!
Today also saw us welcome back Newport Schools U 15’s for their weekly pre season strength and conditioning sessions. These boys have progressed at an unbelievable rate over the past four weeks. Witnessing them master physical literacy along with substantial betterment of movement patterns, core strength and work capacity has been a pleasure! And there is plenty more to come in the remaining few weeks with us! Great effort today boys! (Don’t forget for more of the same, our teen classes are available to all of you, Monday, Wednesday & Friday 3-4pm)
(Sorry backs your pic didn’t come out 😢)
As for classes …..
Tonight had an in depth mobility focus on one of our problem areas, the overhead squat. Coach Ross utilised a variety of mobility exercises to, in many cases drastically improve foot and hip position, during the squat, as well as upper back, lats and shoulders in the overhead position. This again proved a huge eye opener to some and once again highlighted the importance of core strength and mobility to conquer this movement. (This will be an area of focus in our up coming mobility seminar, don’t forget to sign up at the box, ask a coach for more info.)
Top time this evening went to Sam, who continues to impress! Even superman had his cryptonite, but we are yet to find anything to slow this guy down!! Sam was closely followed by the ever improving, hard working, Matty. There was also Awesome work from Hannah completing the workout under cap including 10 rounds of un-assissted pull ups!!! An Amazing achievement!! Our final shout out goes to Claudia. Claudia is an athlete that likes to fly under the radar, but I’m afraid, when putting the first class, hard work that she has of late, not only RX’ing nearly every workout these days, but demonstrating amazing resilience and perseverance to ensure almost flawless form throughout each workout, she definitely deserves a mention. Keep it up Clauds!
B) 10 Rounds
X5 OHS, x7 pull ups, 100m Sprint
C) 3x max effort banded pull downs
