This Saturday we will be having a coffee morning to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Care. It would be great to have as many of you there as possible to help raise money for this amazing cause and, of course, have a fun team WOD and eat cake!!!
Everyone is welcome to join.
We hope you can all make it!
Ever thought about trying CrossFit? Now is your chance…
For the month of September, we are offering you the opportunity to have a trial week, free of charge. We want people to see what CrossFit is all about and to get the full experience here at CrossFit Central Lancaster. No obligation to join, simply a chance to trial a week with us.
Here’s what is happening with Base in September…
September we will continue with our Back Squat cycle and with the Pull/Push movement days. The Back Squat days are leading into our 5RM retest in early October. There is not a huge amount of Olympic lifting this month but next month we will start our Barbell Cycling sessions so will have more of a focus then.
Quick recap of this month and following months:
Phase 1 started on August 18th and run till October 6th. We are running a Back Squat cycle and then second to that we are having sessions where we focus on Weighted Pull/Push movements and Bodyweight Pull/Push movements. This combination will be the majority of our strength training.
Phase 2 that will start directly after on October 7th until November 25th will have another Back Squat cycle (continue from Phase 1) and second to that will be Barbell Cycling sessions.
September’s ‘PEAK’ program will be focused on a deadlift and bench press progressive overload cycle as well as increasing kipping handstand push up and muscle up efficiency under fatigue.
Last weekend, CFCL went down to Devon to participate in Tribal Clash. This is a team event which took place on Blackpool Sands beach over two days. The team was made up of 6 members and they were tested to their limits through some challenging workouts including log carries, rope climbs, beam walks, trail runs, atlas stone lifts and open water swims. CFCL came out the other side in an amazing 43rd place out of 168 teams! A huge well done to all who competed and a massive thank you to those who showed their support either by attending the event and cheering on the sidelines, or with messages of good luck. Team work is definitely what made this weekend such an awesome one.
Well done to everyone and roll on Tribal Clash 2017!
Happy Monday everybody! Don’t forget we have changed our morning class times to 6:30am-7:30am, hopefully this changed will better for everyone wanting to train early doors.
