Another batch of noble beginners, decided to kick their training up to another level by starting their level 1 classes, where, uniquely in a group format, Crossfit London teaches you all those “difficult moves” that leisure centres avoid, using a step by step method mixed with lots of kindness .
Often, difficult to master ground based moves, are limited not by flexibility but by balance. In our classes we get our clients to start working on the balance problems with safe, effective, supportive drills , that work. In 1.1 we look at the air squat, the front squat and overhead squat, along with a bit of hanging work such as basket hangs and toes to bar . Along the way we start to discuss some of our abbreviations like WOD ( Work Out of the Day) and AMRAP ( As Many Rounds as Possible) and start introducing you to moving around the gym ( actually called a Box) safely.
Here is a useful drill that fixes your squat
Most sessions end with a mini WOD, but its not set to be challenging, merely a light rehearsal of newly learned principles. In our sessions we focus on teaching skill, so whilst a flexibility drill may feature we don’t waste 15 minutes of your time on aerobic warm ups and endless stretching . We use the skill progression to warm you up for the full range of motion skill you are about to do. Jogging around is a great warm up if you intend to run. Squat drills are the best warm up for squatting. Long term , for those serious about flexibility, we have some fantastic flexibility classes that really push your range of motion along.
