Shoulder Workshop

Shoulder Workshop - Tuesday, March 4th at 6:30pm

Our shoulder rehab/prehab/mobility/stability/activation seminar will be Tuesday, March 4th from 6:30 to 8:30pm at our 13th Ave gym!

If you have trouble kicking up into a handstand without using your head, your chin up or pull up is not improving, or you display poor ROM with pain, then this is for you! We will work on activation and stabilization for the scapular region. We will also discuss pain management and anti-inflammatory protocols. I will also give you movement drills that you can do at home. 

This workshop is free to all Flux members! Please register for the workshop by signing up on the MindBody calendar.

Bring a pen and paper and wear your training gear.

I look forward to seeing many of you there!

Flux Coaching Team - Spotlight #2: Featuring Coach Luke Rossmo

Flux has been one of the most important things to happen in my life. It has afforded me a spring board to dive into the world of movement. Since the beginning of my coaching career the acquisition and application of ‘movement knowledge’ has become a leading focus in my life. What follows is an account of my journey so far.
When I think of movement I think of Odelia Goldschmidt. She is an inspiring mover whom I have had the great privilege of working with on two occasions now. The first time she came we spent about two weeks together moving. Moving in this sense encompasses acrobatics, mobility, gymnastics, floreio and capoeira. The breadth of material was vast and looking back now it seems overwhelming to think of what was covered in our time together. Luckily, Odelia is a gifted teacher. We slowly and methodically unboxed the world of movement. We would always begin with the simplest and most basic progression. This was important because while the basics often seem relatively simple or even easy, this is rarely the case! Further, movement is the sum of different working parts and so to move well and efficiently we must have a strong grasp on each and every part. This lesson has proved valuable to my own practice as well and especially in the way I begin to teach a movement. The progressions, both with strength development (pulling or pushing, etc.) and also with ‘movement’ also always seem to take one to the precipice of current limitations, but the exciting thing is that what you have done thus far is always opening a door to something in the future.

The second time Odelia came to Flux I was even more fortunate. I got to spend 2-3 hours a day in private training with her (alongside Coach Darci and Coach Mieka) and another 2-3 hours in the evening with a larger group of Flux athletes. This went on for two weeks. During this time we added layers to the foundations set in previous sessions and were also subjected to new material. Some highlights of my training include learning to back and front tuck. I was also able to achieve my first high bridge rotation. I estimate that I have spent 150 hours with Odelia and in that time I have learned how to systematically and safely teach different ‘movements' and movement patterns. 

The Bulgarian method of weightlifting is the system that Darci Anderson uses to train her athletes. To understand this system and its benefits Darci sought out the best. Darci has spent several years developing a friendship and mentorship with Coach Alex Varbanov, who holds 10 world records and an Olympic medal in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting. Learning under Coach Alex has been a unique and exciting opportunity. This summer I will travel to Bulgaria for a 2-week training camp supported by the Flux Coaching Education Initiative. We will be training 6-hours a day and on top of that there will be daily lectures on the science behind Olympic Weightlifting.

Another individual I’ve had the great pleasure to learn from is Dr. Andreo (Dre) Spina. Dr. Spina, who works with several Major League Baseball Teams, has developed a system used to acquire and strengthen ranges of motion. I attended his FRC (functional range conditioning) certification and it has proved invaluable.  I continue to spend many hours  bolstering my knowledge of the system and its practical applications.

Charles Poliquin is highly regarded in strength and conditioning circles and I have begun education through the Poliquin International Certification Program. I have completed the level 1 theory and technical components. Each component requires the completion of a test. To complete the first two tests many hours of study were required. Thus far the information has given me a working understanding of how to best select which set, rep, tempo and rest combinations are best for producing desired results. I look forward to completing the practical component next week (February 14) in Rhode Island.

The things that I have mentioned above have very little value if the concepts and movements are not practiced and explored. I get great joy watching and practicing movement. Movement here encompasses everything expressed above. I am so fortunate to be surrounded by like-minded people at Flux. I spend between 6-10 hours being coached and mentored in lifting by Coach Darci Anderson every week. I often spend several other hours a week playing with movement and hand balancing under her guidance. I estimate my time training under Flux Principal Coach and Owner Darci around 400 hours in the past year. This does not include time spent coaching alongside Darci, which adds many more hundreds of hours in my study of the art of coaching.

I also get to play with other coaches at Flux. I spend many hours a month in ‘movement play’ with Coach Mieka, Dallas, Sandi and others. Each coach as an athlete brings a wealth of personal experience, tips, advice, cues and energy. Being part of this experienced Flux team that thrives from the exploration of movement, ideas, and play is an incredible experience.  Having so much feedback and the opportunity to explore movement has been integral to my personal coaching career. 

I am eager to continue on this journey of knowledge, exploration and play at Flux - School of Human Movement!

Not sure if you should do the CrossFit Open? Here is the very first workout of the Open from 2011.

Coaches: Spend a solid 25 minutes on the warm up for this one, with 15 minutes allocated to the snatch.  Advanced folks should simply warm up the snatch as usual and start earlier than the beginners. 

A. Workout 11.1 - If you are competing in the OPEN I suggest you scale as little as possible (as long as the snatch weight is not too heavy for you).  You should also have a partner count your reps for you.

INTERMEDIATE:
If you are NOT competing in the OPEN, or you are NOT Advanced, do the following:
reduce Double Under reps
reduce power snatch reps and/or weight. 

BEGINNER:
10 power snatches
either 60 sec of double under practice or 60 single unders
rest 60 sec.
5 sets


 Workout 11.1
MENincludes Masters Men up to 54 years old
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 10 minutes of:
30 Double-unders
15 Power snatches (75lbs / 35kg)
WOMENincludes Masters Women up to 54 years old
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 10 minutes of:
30 Double-unders
15 Power snatches (55lbs / 25kg)
MASTERS MEN - includes Masters Men 55+
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 10 minutes of:
30 Double-unders
15 Power snatches (65lbs / 30kg)
MASTERS WOMEN - includes Masters Women 55+
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 10 minutes of:
30 Double-unders
15 Power snatches (45lbs / 20kg)

Monday, February 3, 2014

A. Advanced: I expect clean and perfect reps. No sloppy back on the pull and no arched back on the jerk. If your coach doesn't feel you are ready to do advanced, just accept it and work on technique and strength. 
AMRAP Clean and Jerk in 90 sec 95/145 lbs
Rest 3 minutes
repeat

Rest 10 minutes.

B. 3 Rounds for Time: NO DROPPING EMPTY BARBELLS!!!
thrusters x 20 35/45 lbs
kipping chest to bar pull ups x 20
burpees x15

A. INTERMEDIATE/BEGINNER:
 This is you if you have trouble keeping your back tight and shoulders open.

This is also you if you were planning on doing PART A at 75/115 lbs or less.

This is also you if are very new to the clean and jerk.  

7-10 reps of very Pretty Clean and Jerks  (No Clock). Intermediate folks, try and go a bit heavier than the numbers I gave in the above scenario, but ONLY if your form is solid.

Rest 3 minutes.

Repeat

B. INTERMEDIATE:
  The weight on the thrusters is very light so should be a quick and unbroken pace for the first round. If you can't imagine doing 1 round unbroken, reduce the reps.  You can also do chin over bar instead.  You may use a band if you have a 30 sec eccentric on your chin up.  IF you are doing the OPEN now is a good time to reduce the band size.  Yes, it will be more difficult, but it will help get you to an unassisted kipping chin up/pull up.

B. BEGINNERS
3 Rounds. No Clock, simply move through the movements with a focus on form.  Rest as needed. 
thrusters x 10
30 sec eccentric chin up with a 10 sec hold at the top.  Or, if this is too tough, 5 ring rows @ 31x1
