Rowing & Bar Muscle Up Clinics - THIS Saturday the 17th of February!

The Open is coming!

As usual this is a very exciting time of the year for us CrossFitters, we are about to enter 5 weeks of a test we know little about. What we do know however is that a bigger engine, better skill level, and focus on the little details can definitely get us further in the WOD's than we could imagine!

For that reason, we are offering our members 2 epic workshops THIS Saturday the 17th of February 2018, one is lead by a World Class Rower and the other by our Head Coach (who's been doing bar muscle ups since the early 18th century or similar...). 

10.00-10.45 - Rowing workshop with Mechiel Versluis!

 

In 2013 Mechiel was part of the Dutch team that took home the Gold medal at the World Championships!

  • What: Rowing Clinic
  • When: 10.00-10.45, Saturday the 17th.
  • Where: CCF HQ, Gardens.
  • For Who: ALL CCF MEMBERS, no real prerequisite.
  • Cost: NONE, it's for Free!
  • Sign Up: Mandatory, through [email protected]

This will form part of a 2k Time Trial that Mechiel him self will be doing to qualify for the Masters World Champs and the flow will set you up nicely for your own 2k Row PB!

The clinic will contain a technique part from Mechiel's side and then you will help him reach his target time when we set him up in a big heat against the participants!

PS. If we get enough "Teams" of 2-3 athletes that prefers to do the 2k in that setting we will set that up for a second heat as well!

11.15-12.00 - Bar Muscle Up Clinic with Coach Chris!

Where not sure, but in 2013 Coach Chris was probably doing Bar Muscle Ups in his garage, he didn't win any Gold medals at any World Champs, but he knows a swing or two.. ;)

  • What: Bar Muscle Up Clinic
  • When: 11.15-12.00, Saturday the 17th.
  • Where: CCF HQ, Gardens.
  • For Who: ALL CCF MEMBERS, pre-requisite: 5 unbroken Chest To Bar Pull Ups.
  • Cost: NONE, it's for Free!
  • Sign Up: Mandatory, through [email protected]

We all know how much those higher gymnastic skills can stop us dead in our tracks when the evil genius of Dave Castro decides to put them in an Open WOD, and make no mistake, the higher skills will be showing up every year.

No matter if you have a Bar Muscle Up already or if you are still hoping to get your first one, Coach Chris will take you through progressions to get you there.
For those that have the muscle up already this will be a great chance to focus on how to minimise the waste of energy in a set, how to get up on the bar quicker, and also how to save your hands from ripping..

Give us a shout if you have any questions, but we hope to see as many of you there as possible to help you improve on both your engine and your gymnastic skill set this Saturday!
