Workshop Dates To Be Announced throughout the Year
Every workshop will concentrate on a specific area, i.e. bars, rings, floor and will be spread out across sessions in a buildable progressive format.
WHAT IS CROSSFIT GYMNASTICS?
In CrossFit, body-weight movements are considered gymnastics (air squat, push-up, pull-up, etc.). We are taking skills from the sport of gymnastics and applying them to workouts. The gymnastics label is applied to any exercise in which you move your body through a range of motion (ROM) or extended range of motion (EROM) without an external load. Isometric holds are also considered gymnastics. In other words -- Dynamic Movement.
CrossFit uses short parallel bars (“paralettes”), the floor, still rings, pull-up bars, dip bars, climbing ropes, and other equipment to implement gymnastics.
The workshops will be taught by a USA Gymnastics Instructor and assistant coaches using USAG progressions and techniques with CrossFit skill transfer in mind.
We will work on many progressions of gymnastic movements and will also circuit train for body memory, strength, and skill.
Gymnastics consists of strength in shapes. It is no different than, for instance, strengthening back squats or deadlifts, you must strengthen the shapes with progressions. It can be just as, if not more, difficult to strengthen the shapes; this is why it is so important for progressions. It does work! It will take patience, consistency and perseverance, but it does work.
