THIS WEDNESDAY 10/1 WE WILL BE CLOSING THE GYM AFTER THE 5:30PM CLASSES FOR OUR QUARTERLY STAFF MEETING!
That means the 6:30pm and 7:30pm classes are cancelled at both Foundation CrossFit and CrossFit SLU.
BAFF was a blast! I hope you guys have VERSUS IV on your calendars: Saturday 11/15
Registration is open now and you can only participate if you register! In the past it was “come and play”, but with the sheer number of athletes we’d receive, it’s time we set up some official roster of athletes.
Here’s the first event:
for max total points:
– shoulder-to-overhead, no rack (kilos)
– hang clean 1RM (kilos)
– deadlift 1RM (kilos)
Athletes will have 15 minutes per effort.
This past weekend was the Battle of Admiral at all four of our teams placed Top 10 out of 25! (3rd, 4th, 5th, and 10th)
Big thanks to everyone who was out to compete and support! Especially Amy, Ann Marie, Anastasia, Bobby, Brian, Colin, Hannah, Isaac, Jenny, Liz, Mark, Sarah, and all the friends we got to hang out and throw down with!
Come hang out with Coach Nate Helming of Helming Athletics and San Francisco CrossFit.
Strength and Conditioning for Runners. Spend a half-day (4 hours) with Coach Nate Helming at The LAB in Seattle, Washington learning how to apply strength & basic movement concepts to run fast, efficient, and without injury. The course is appropriate for athletes, coaches, and trainers of all levels looking to learn how to integrate functional movement, skill development, and its application to better running. No previous experience in the weight room is necessary. However, attendees should have experience in and desire to take their running to another level. Everyone should expect to move a lot and to try some new things. Attendees should be prepared for an initial lecture covering the framework and philosophy followed by practical sessions with short discussions in between. Topics will include: what it means to be strong as a runner; the concept of mechanical efficiency and locomotion; and programming guidelines. In the practical sessions, attendees will learn functional movement and progressions for squats, single leg pistol squats, pushups, and jump rope, and how, through skill development and transfer, these movements connect to and improve our running mechanics. Interspersed throughout, attendees will learn running-related drills that drive home just exactly why all endurance athletes should strength train, and exactly how a program can bridge your current abilities with your future goals.
