Awesome Team Comp

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Thank you to everyone who turned up and participated on Saturday for our annual team comp. It was a great way to get to know more members and throw down together. Thank you to everyone who helped out on the day. It takes a team to get everything running smoothly.

This is our third year running this comp and it keeps getting better. Our next in-house comp will be an individual comp later in the year with both RX and Scaled Divisions for Open and Masters athletes (40+). If you feel you missed out this time around make sure you sign up for the next one. We will have heaps of info around it.

We also have our Fittest flat in Dunedin coming up makes sure you keep your eyes out for way more info on that. And get your friends and flatmates involved in that.

Toes to Bar Progress

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

How is your month of TTB going?

Ask yourself if you are:

Better at keeping your legs straight during linked TTB?

Closer to linking TTB?

Getting your toes closer to the bar?

You should be able to say YES to at least one of these questions depending on what level you have been doing during our skill session. If you are still struggling to make progress ask the coach for new progressions next time you are at the gym. Another important thing is you use the progressions you have learnt, in every TTB MetCon you do, not just during the skill session.

Remember a nice strong TTB kip can be used for many other bar skills not just TTB. The reason we picked TTB first is because the ability to control a big kip will carry over to all other bar gymnastics we do. It all relates back to the Hollow/Arch. Keep it simple and you will see improvements faster.

Skill of the Month: Toes to Bar (TTB)

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We are starting up our Skill of the Month Segment this month to help all members get through some gymnastic plateaus. This month we take a closer look at the Toes to Bar and some progressions and strength work that will help this movement. There will be three levels to choose from and the coach will help you with that decision based of your current skill level.

Level one will focus on keeping good technique under moderate fatigue. Level two will focus on improving ability to string together reps of TTB. Level 3 will focus on developing core strength and getting your first RX TTB. As you improve through the month you will have the ability of going up in levels and see real progress. There will be a second time every week where you get to practice, in a wod, what you have learnt.

Reminder: I still have a few bits of apparel which haven’t been collected yet. Please bring cash or pay into bank account with apparel as reference.

We have sorted a date for our Team Comp. Saturday 18/5 Briefing is 9am Be on time please.

Teams will consist of 3 girls or 3 guys from 3 different decades so start asking around now to get your team sorted. When you have a team sorted contact us straight away so we can put you on the list. In case you want to do the comp but are struggling to find a team we can help you out. Lets get as many teams as possible for this one.

All workouts will be team based and the work will be shared which means if you for example struggle with pull ups let the rest of the team do them and you can do more of the other exercises. Don’t avoid signing up for this comp just because there is one exercise you can’t do. This about having fun with the rest of the community and throwing down with members from other classes you may not see.

Remember this is Dress Up so get your team together now and start organizing your costumes. There will be a cost of $15 per team and all money goes towards prizes on the day.
