A general synopsis of what’s been in the works this past month; Thanks Britt and Chris for heading this up! And to Britt for the write-up:
Open to all CrossFit Unstoppable members, CFU Barbell will be a new class focusing on the improvement of strength and technical execution of the snatch, clean & jerk and related lifts. Athletes who would like to make significant strength gains will start out with a 4-week training cycle utilizing the olympic lifts. Trainers will be available for guidance and correction but each athlete will progress through their workout somewhat independently.
The CFU Barbell program will officially start on January 6th, however we will run a beta test of the program starting December 2nd. The schedule will run as follows: Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30pm and Saturday at 10am. Please arrive early to warm-up, mobilize, and gear-up before class.
Frequently Asked Questions…
Is this program for me?
Can I still WOD?
- These workouts are designed to be a standalone program and are demanding on their own. If you attempt to do both it could be a recipe for overtraining and poor results.
Will my ability to WOD suffer if I just focus on strength for a month?
- Probably, but the technique learned and the strength gains made will set you up for significant improvements when you return to Group WOD.
What if I just want to work technique and don’t want to go through a full strength cycle?
- These classes should not be considered the same as an open gym. However, CFU members who would like to work specifically on oly technique can also attend the Barbell class for that purpose. Trainers will offer guidance, correction and possibly some accessory lifts to assist in technique development.
