Workout of the day for Thurs 8th March – We know what 18.3 is!

This was posted by Dave Castro as his hint for 18.3. Being as smart as we are we think we have cracked it.

Two daisies that look exactly the same, a repeat workout perhaps? With gymnastics being relatively limited in the first two workouts, it’s about time we saw some more high skill movements.

Our guess…18.3 is going to be 15.3.

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 14 minutes of:
7 Muscle-ups
50 Wall ball 9/6kg
100 Double unders

What are you thoughts?

Workout of the day for Mon 26th Feb – Coach Milo is our Hero

We want to take a moment to salute Coach Milo.

Ever since Milo has taken up the head coach role he has thrown himself whole heartedly at making everything about Thames and all of it’s people better. Milo is always ready to go over-and-beyond at the drop of a hat for our members and our staff to help them out in whatever way he can. He even took on his Tribal Clash spot despite rolling his ankle so badly he couldn’t stand properly – and also continued to coach the morning sessions like a champ.

He is wholly responsible for all of the gains that have been had due to last cycle’s strength program, and for the increased interest and dedication from the members that have upped their frequency in attending to make sure they don’t miss out on the IWT funzies!

Milo is always there for us when we need him, and is always for the tribe rather than himself. We want to say a huge thanks for all he does, and has done over the past few years for us all.

THANKS MILO!

Workout of the day for Thurs 22nd Feb – Arm Balances or the Art of Flight

We’re in week 6/8 of the current cycle, which means the focus this week will be on arms & upper body again. During Saturday’s yoga practice, we’ll be flowing our way through a few progressions towards bakasana, the crow pose. Arm balances are of course an excellent – and ninja – way to build strength in the arms and wrists, but also to improve your proprioception and fine motor skills.

To allow us humans to walk upright and support much of our weight on our two legs, the hip joints are designed to be robust and stable. The shoulder on the other hand is extremely mobile, and therefore requires support from the surrounding soft tissues – muscles, tendons and ligaments. Because the joint is so unstable, shoulders are prone to pain and injury. This needs to be considered when practising any arm balance, as it’s easy to just collapse into the pose, without considering the necessity of having to lift up through the midline.  Abdominal strength is required in order to stabilise the torso and allow the pelvis and legs to come off the ground to achieve this type of posture. In other words, you’re equally going to have to work those abs in order to take flight.

Muscles are strengthened in the range of motion in which you work them, and in true CrossFit spirit, we want to keep things constantly varied – it’s good to mix things up and move in different ways, so come on down and channel your inner ninja.

Our weekly yoga class runs every Saturday, you can find further information about it here.

Non-members of Thames are welcome to drop in at a cost of £10, which can be paid either cash on the day, or online by purchasing a Yoga Pass.

Workout of the day for Mon 12th February – Testing Week Day 1


Workout of the Day – CrossFit

This is where all your hard work during the IWT days should pay off. You have put in the work now it’s time to reap the rewards.

A) CrossFit Open 15.5

27-21-15-9
Row for calories
Thrusters 42.5/30kg

Think about an appropriate pace for this workout. Setting off on the first 27 calories at your maximum pace is going to end badly.

Think back to your most recent IWT workout, what was the pace you were holding on the rower during the last 1-2 rounds? Use this pace from the very beginning of this workout, it may feel ‘slow’ or ‘easy’ in the beginning but chances are this is your max, sustainable pace.

Working at the highest level you can maintain will result in a faster time than if you go max effort at the beginning and die off.
