Event 6 of the South California Regional last weekend. The Australasian Regionals are on this weekend in Wollongong, south of Sydney. We will be doing some of the workouts at CFB over this weekend, if you’re keen to join in let me know.
Jack pictured getting ready to compete at Zealous CF comp on the weekend. Not sure of his placing but saw him get 4th in his heat for the second workout. Was a well run comp, congrats to the Zealous crew.
Richie competed in the Auckland Champs Weightlifting comp on Saturday, finished second with a 92kg Snatch and 115kg Clean and Jerk, congrats Richie!!
Back squat 5 x 5 rep
1 set max rep knee to elbow
Score = total K2E
Hang on the bar as long as you want, as soon as feet touch ground the set is finished.
A bunch of CFB Zombies competed in the 6km O Rock off-road obstacle course on Sunday. Not many of them are regular runners and were surprised at how easy running 6km was without any training other than CrossFit. Ahhh Crossfit is awesome!
That death by clean and jerk workout seemed easy for a good few minutes, then nek minnit…
W.O.D. ‘Team Workout’
I did this workout at a CrossFit cert a few months ago, it’s lots of fun. 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.
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.
