The intensity was turned up a notch this week, where we challenged all our members with several strength sequences💪🏻, core burners🔥, endurance EMOMs and conditioning workouts! 🤸🏽♂️ Quality and technique is still very much the focus 🔑 - even under fatigue! We continue to educate 👩🏼🎓our members on this, by making sure they keep to the correct progression (based on their ability) as well as helping them understand what they need to do to progress👍✔️ It's been great to see a lot of our members really show significant improvement across their foundational work (especially core strength & mobility).
Get this 'Timer' drill right and you'll be on your way to some nice efficient kipping ring Muscle-ups👌 - It's all about pushing those rings down in front of you as you come from through the bottom of the swing and then connecting with the hips to add some bounce (and ultimately land higher in the dip position)👍 Don't get caught up with kicking your feet so high to the front - get that angle right pull down the rings with your arms and strong lats😉

Thursday 6:30pm class getting stronger 💪🏻 through a challenging isometric hold workout (involving dish holds, chin up/inverted hang holds and squat holds🔥🔥). ✔️Isometric holds (with good technique) are a great way to build strength and connective tissue in joints👌
|| Chest to Bar Pull-ups || Helping the crew @crossfitrushhourryde with some butterfly chest to bar technique. Having done many workshops and PTs over the last year (across many boxes), the one theme that really stands out is how many people struggle with the old chest to bar pull-ups (singles or usually stringing them together), although are usually fine with regular kipping pull-ups🙈. So what makes the chest to bar pull-up that bit more harder 🤷♀️? ✔️ Timing - it needs to block, snap and pull a lot more aggressively vs a regular pull-up. As we are bringing our body further up the bar, we need to get up and down as quick as we can whilst maintaining a smooth constant rythem ✔️ Body Tension - squeeze the crap out of your glutes to help create more tension and hence get more whip and lift to the bar. Remember that the quicker you get up to the top the quicker you get down to maintain that constant rythem which will prevent that annoying awkward swing (that results in you coming off). Work on your core strength too👍 ✔️ Co-ordination - every rep must be like the first. Just like Dubs, keep a constant rythem and start and finish each rep and the correct end points with body in the right position Underneath all this, some people still require a stronger level of strict pull-up strength and others need more mobility through their thoracic. If you have descent range of motion through your thoracic this can be used to your advantage when pulling to the bar (you'll be able to arch your upper back and scrape your chest without the need to pull too high above the bar).
||Sunday outdoor session😎|| Awesome session this morning - great to be out in the ☀️getting strong and fit💪🏻🤸🏽♂️ ▶️ http://www.handspringgymnastics.com.au
||Awesome Results || Same girl - almost 11mths apart (Awesome work @emivorymua!! ). These amazing results (not only in body composition) but overall strength, fitness and mobility have been incredible to watch unfold! Consistent training, hard work, following the program and good diet can yield great results over time. Gymnastics strength is a great way for getting lean and working that core🔥😉💪🏻 ▶️http://www.handspringgymnastics.com.au
