Coach Tom’s advice on the kipping pull-up. To...
Devised by ex-gymnast Greg Glassman, CrossFit workouts look to challenge he entire body and its larger muscle groups, combining moves from gymnastics, HIIT, weights training and Olympic weightlifting (such as the snatch and the clean and jerk)
The key to CrossFit isn’t that it takes you hours to complete your workout, but to put in maximum effort in the shortest time possible to achieve the biggest improvement.
We have a number of different options to get you started here at Beowulf depending on your experience. From a one hour screening to a 4 week foundation course
What is a WOD?
The “WOD” is the “workout of the day.” Each day a new WOD is posted at Crossfit Beowulf, and it’s part of a complete program designed to improve strength and conditioning. The Beowulf Crossfit program is characterized by three days of work before one day of rest, though athletes may alter this pattern. The WOD can be scaled (adjusted) to provide a suitable challenge for athletes at any level.
I haven’t been active for years, is CrossFit for me?
Yes, absolutely! CrossFit is completely scalable so every workout can be made more or less challenging, depending on your fitness level. This allows complete beginners to train with CrossFit veterans and still get an awesome workout.
To see progression, often the WOD (workout of the day) is timed. The only person you’re working against is yourself. This time will become your benchmark and should reduce each time you perform that same WOD.
I’ve never tried CrossFit before so can I join any of the coached sessions?
CrossFit is made up of many different movements that need to be practiced and performed under the watchful eye of a CrossFit coach to ensure you’ve got the correct technique.
All members new to CrossFit need to attend an CrossFit foundation course or screening first. We have different courses depending on the time scale in which you’d like to complete it.
