The Savage Ox – September 2017

September 2017

Yo Team,

I'm going to keep this short and sweet.

As always lots going on in the business, above and below the surface. We are always striving to be better then yesterday, and pursuing that very same goal in our athletes. We hope you (our athletes) are enjoying your journey with us and feel supported in that journey. We also hope that you feel like we are giving you the opportunity to be honest with us. Tell us about your high and lows so we can do our very best to support you.

On that note, you're awesome and you should check out all the awesomeness that is to come below.

— Coach Josh Hromis

2017 TRAINING CYCLE 3 Explained

 

Its that time again! New Training Cycle is in play as of the 4th of Sep. With that also comes the Spring Schedule, not much has changed, except for Gymnastics being swapped out for Ox Box Barbell - 'More Power' as Arnie would say.

For those that committed to Gymnastic we are super proud of you, a massive shout to Sarah Fardy, her journey has not been easy, it was very impressive to watch her commit to her gymnastics development in her time of rehabilitation.

We highly recommend you read Head Coach Josh explanation on Cycle 3 and Ox Box Barbell in the link below. If you really want to achieve you goals, become the best version of yourself, it helps to know why your doing what your doing, and how you can optimise your performance with that knowledge.

CROSSFIT TEAM SERIES DUO WOD 

 

Partner Up and Work out! CrossFit Collingwood Team Series 2017.

Two person team taking on Two sets of WODS.

WE ARE ADDING A TWIST!!!!

You and your partner MUST PICK A FAMOUS DUO THEME!!!!!!

COSTUMES AER HIGHLY ENCOURAGED INFACT SLIGHTLY COMPULSORY.... DETAILS:

The CrossFit Team series is a similar beast to the CrossFit Open (if you dont know what that is, dont freak out). It is hosted every year through CrossFit HQ and is open to the world to compete. Allthough the Team Series won't qualify you for the CrossFit Games, you could win a ton of cash. That being said, that's not why CrossFit Collingwood encourages our members to join.

This is an awesome opportunity to train with a mate, or find someone that is equally eager (or in need of encouragement) to take on the unique experience of working out as a pair.

Pairs will be able to choose between the Rx'd and scaled version of each workout. Choosing scaled for one workout will not prevent a team from doing the next workout as prescribed.

The partner workouts will be released with a live announcement on WOD 1, Sept. 21, and WOD 2, Sept. 28.

We will be attaching the Link on our Newsfeed for each announecement.

EVENT DATES: We will be offering our Members only TWO WOD dates to participate in this event.

WOD 1 - Saturday 23rd 7am Kick off

WOD 2 - Friday 29th 7am Kick off (Grand Final Eve Public Holiday)

*We unfortunately cannot offer times to reschedule the WODs. Sorry not Sorry, we simple don't have the time or space. If you really want to do it, you will be free. If you can make it to one and not the other, that is acceptable, you can just do one, but you still need to meet the participation requirements.

PARTICIPATION:

RSVP 18th SEPTEMBER

To participate your Team Captain must email info@crossfitcollingwood.com the following:

- A screenshoot of your receipt from CrossFit Games. Admission is $40 USD. (PER TEAM) Simply click here to log in. - Your Team Name (Must be a famous DUO) - If you are coming to both WODS - RX or Scale - Your Partner (Including last name)

If you're in need of a partner, write your name on our Whiteboard in the studio, and we can play match making service.

Article of the month

COMPETING VS TRAINING

 

A word from Coach Kevin, some great training advice!

“If we practice and train the movements everyday, we will be training our neurological pathways to move better, with better technique, allowing us to move more efficiently with good mechanics without compromising technique. This will lead to better testing results due to better neurological adaptations to the movements, allowing you to move heavier loads more efficiently at a faster rate with good technique.” (Yun 2017)
