Our Xmas BBQ is on this Sunday at 1pm at Little Shoal Bay. Friends and family most welcome. Just bring a plate of salad etc. We’ll supply meat for the BBQ, eating utensils, condiments etc. A couple of members have organized some fun and games…I promise no surprise workouts though!
The HPU Playoffs are on Today from 1pm. Event starts at Waitakere Trusts Stadium Lincoln Rd Henderson then from 3.30pm Event will be back at CrossFit HPU at 86 Victoria St West Auckland City.
We have 2 teams entered, Rx and Masters. Come down and support our teams!
100 Pull up
200 Push up
Partition the pull ups, push ups and squats as required.
Because the volume of reps is so high, ‘Partnering up’ is an option for this workout.
One day soon, double under skips may be considered the ‘scaled’ option. We’ve started a triple under leader board and guess who’s at the top with 9 consecutive….Much easier to judge when you have a slow motion camera on hand! Watch the video to see.
20 Double under or 5 burpee in remainder of minute
Congrats to our competitors at CrossFit Hibiscus Coast’s first birthday celebration comp on Saturday. Another great CrossFit event with a great bunch of supporters cheering on the CFB crew. Congrats to John, Que and Chris for such a successful first year of business, seems like only a few months ago they were down here training with us!
CrossFit Hibiscus Coast is celebrating their one year anniversary tomorrow with a competition named ‘Battle of the North Shore’. We have a bunch of members entered so come support if you can. Comp starts at 10.15 and planned finish time is 4.30.
Overhead squat 4 x 3 rep
3 members to a team, everyone cycles through the exercises. Switch when the runner returns. 1 person must be in a prone hold for burpees to count, score is total burpees completed by the team.
Med ball partner throws looked like fun on Saturday. The classes were set up in a line and at the start I was tempted to ‘Run the Gauntlet’ (or Gantelope if you’re super old school) I’m sure some people would have been too tempted to throw a low ball…
Lydia’s initial weighted push ups…You have to start somewhere! World records in weightlifting are won and lost with as little as 1kg, so any improvement in weight is good. Constant improvement is the key.
I have been a member at CrossFit Birkenhead for the last 2 years and prior to that, CrossFit Birkenhead coach Paul Davies had been training me using CrossFit methods in one-on-one sessions. CrossFit workouts are unparallel to any other workouts in the New Zealand fitness industry today and it is not a new fad that is going to disappear anytime soon. In a CrossFit class members are always educated on best practise and technique is always taught and monitored. As a physician, I have been impressed by Paul’s ability to scale workouts to appropriately suit individual needs. Each CrossFit workout is always different and your body and mind is continually challenged. I have referred my own family and friends to Paul and many of them are now also members of CrossFit Birkenhead.
