Fitness:

CF

As you know I joined a new crossfit gym. ¬†It is pretty small and the max amount of people allowed in each class is 8! ¬†I like it because there is a lot of one on one attention and the other day we worked on “cleans” for over an hour…which I still haven’t mastered!

I’ve been doing crossfit for about a month and a half so I still consider myself a “newbie.” ¬†I feel like “cleans” and “snatches” are two of the hardest moves, and to be honest the “snatch” kind of scares me!

Here are some crossfit tips for beginners that I really like:

CF tips

The Power Clean

Learning how to do full snatches

Snatch Balance Tips РI have never been that great with balance and if you can sympathize with me on this then you need to read this article.

Here are a few tips when performing the snatch balance:

  • Brace before you dip and drive under. ¬†Say tight throughout the lift until you stand back up.
  • Keep your hands loose so you can press under faster. ¬†A death grip will slow down the bar when you dip and drive.
  • Focus on pressing¬†under¬†the bar as opposed to pressing the bar¬†up.
  • Try to receive the bar at the point at which the bar is weightless. ¬†Don‚Äôt drop down and let the weight crash on you.
  • Go only as low as you can maintain good shoulder position.

Monday – 3 month fit test!! ¬†Let’s see what kind of progress I’ve made: ¬†Also Biceps + Cardio– Push Up Challenge

Tuesday-  OFF

Wednesday-  Crossfit

Thursday – Crossfit

Friday-   Gym (depends on what we do at crossfit during the week)- Push Up Challenge

Saturday – Crossfit
