Pre-Sleven Social workout

30 Aug

photo (16)Sleven Social Special WOD

In teams of 2 complete the following for time:

10 rounds in total (5 per team member) of:
10 single arm kettlebell clean & press (alternating) (L3: 24/16kg, L2: 20/12kg)
200m sprint

10 rounds of ‘Cindy’ in total (5 per team member):
5 pull ups
10 push ups
15 air squats

60 pistols (alternating) in total (partitioning doesn’t have to be equal between the partners)

200m dash carrying the ‘pet’ whilst the partner performs 15 burpees, then swap

Overhead squat a total of 800kg for every male in the team, and 550kg for every female e.g. two men would need squat a total volume of 1600kg, so if they choose to do this with 40kg they would perform 40 reps, with 20kg they would perform 80 reps (partitioning doesn’t have to be equal between the partners)

400m run per team member

*during the workout one partner (the non-working partner) must hold either in the hands or on the shoulders a ‘pet’. This pet object will be determined by the coach.

*if the pet touches the floor during the workout, the team gets a penalty each time of one minute added to their final time. If the pet stays on the floor for a prolonged period of time (determined by the coach) then further 1 minute penalties will be incurred.

*one partner working at a time.

*one bar per team on the overhead squats, so for different weights it will need to be changed each time.

Starting CrossFit in London: a beginners guide

27 Aug

There are two places in London where its probably best to start your CrossFit training. And that’s us here in Vauxhall at CrossFit SE11

There’s a variety of reasons why you might choose us:

1. We are well located. Minutes from a tube and with memberships that are good for either location. So if you work more east but live more south, you get the best of both sites. Both are fully equip facilities with showers should you need them too.

2. We have the space for you. Many smaller CrossFits are at capacity. In fact, we often hear that you may well do your beginners training with other gyms but then find out that there is no space for you in their regular classes. In Bethnal Green we just recently invested in another 2000 sq foot of space just so  you don’t have to go on a  waiting list as well as opening CrossFit SE11 so that we can cater for our members who wanted us in South London.

3. We have a very structured logical and flexible approach to your beginner training. We understand  that it’s not viable to say “every Monday at 5pm for the next 6 weeks”  and so have  beginner lessons floating through the schedule so you can pick and choose when you want to attend.

4. But, blog copy is “cheap”.  Anyone can talk big on the internet.  In fact, CrossFit London UK has been going since 2005, we can boost to be the 1st ever affiliate outside of the American landmass, in fact, CrossFit London UK were the 20th CrossFit affiliate ever. And now you get all our experience at CrossFit SE11 too.

5. We can offer you much more than just CrossFit. We have a number of other classes that compliment our core CrossFit sessions. From adult gymnastics, boxing, rope and aerial, Olympic lifting, strength to regular workshops and masterclasses. How can we offer such a range? We employ the best coaches in London with a variety of backgrounds and specialties.

So CrossFit beginners,  did you get the message?
