Halfway through August. Who would have thought it!

Now time for a bit of fun outside tomorrow. We'll be moving some odd objects and just having a bit of fun in (hopefully) the sun. 

We'll be updating on the beach here shortly. Right now it looks like rain, we just don't know exactly how much and when!

We have a full team for MotionBall for September 8th, but you can always help out by donating. We'll be posting a link here shortly for where you can donate.

G'day. 

Tuesday coming at you here. And can you believe it's 3 weeks until Labour Day weekend. And we all know what that means... back to school!

Could you be more excited for that!!

Stay tuned for any further announcements for the schedule come September. No drastic changes, but a few of our specialty classes will be moved around. 

Strength

Handstand Work

We will work for 10 minutes on handstand progressions.. For some people it means working on wall walks and positioning and for others it means pushing the envelope a bit with your movement patterns. The primary goal will be to get you into the correct position and then push the envelope with your movement after that. 

T2B Progressions

Conditioning

  • 25 T2B/Leg Raises/Knee Tucks
  • 50' Handstand Walk/4 Wall Walks
  • 400m Run
  • 20 T2B/Leg Raises/Knee Tucks
  • 50' Handstand Walk/4 Wall Walks
  • 400m Run
  • 15 T2B/Leg Raises/Knee Tucks
  • 50' Handstand Walk/4 Wall Walks
  • 400m Run

18min Time Cap

Lots of work upside down. We will stagger the start in 3 groups if necessary to make sure people have room to work their handstand walking and T2B. I'll be going over the progressions for what you need to show me or the coaches when making choices for what you should be working on with your movement.

G'day. 

Hope you are all well and fully enjoyed your weekend. 

Now on to a bit more work this week and then looking at a beach WOD again this Saturday, same schedule as the weekends before at the beach at the moment. 

Keep on grinding in the gym during this beautiful summer we are having and then come September we'll be in a strength cycle to kick off the fall. 

Strength

Back Squat x 3reps x 5sets

Hit a bit of volume here on your strength. We'll start the clock for 20 minutes and you have the first 5 minutes to get your warm up sets in and then the next 15 minutes to hit 5 good work sets. That means for the first couple of sets, hit a set every 90secs to 2 minutes and then during set 4/5 you want to wait a good 3 minutes between sets. Really focus on that technique and movement with some weight on your back. 

Conditioning

  • 60 WBS 
  • 40 DB Front Rack Lunge Steps
  • 20 Burpee Box Jump Overs

This is a sprint. Try to go as close to as unbroken as possible on the wall ball shots as possible. Grab your dumbbells and start moving your feet and then stay focused through the burpee box jump overs. We can run this as a stagger start or heats. Balls at the wall, lunges where the soft and hard mats meet and then boxes set up in the middle of the floor.

G'day ladies & gentlemen. 

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Beach workout was fantastic on Saturday. 

We are also looking for a few activities for the end of the summer and into the fall, like a golf tournament, a similar end of the summer party to last year, and a few more outdoor workouts. 

Strength

Kipping HSPU

We are going to work on some strength work here and then work a bit on your skill development with the kipping handstand pushup. For those still working on kicking up on the wall, work on the floor from a lunge position kicking up. And if you still building strength, work your pushups from the box. 

DU's/Skipping

We will work on your skipping technique, breathing, and efficiency. 

Conditioning

20min Ascending Ladder

4,8,12,16,20...

  • HSPU/Box Pushups/Pushups/DB Strict Press

200m Run/50 DU's or 150 SU's or 1min DU practice after each set. 

Start off with a set of handstand pushups and then get out on a run and crush out some skipping. The first few sets you can push the pace a little bit and then as you get into the middle of the workout pace yourself out so you can hit a few big sets of handstand pushups.
