I’m excited to announce the launch of a project I have been working on for the last few months – The RX CrossFit Gymnastics Course.
I put this program together because an all to common problem I see at CrossFit boxes are clients who after a few months or even years of CrossFit training still heavily relying on scaling movements such as pull-ups, push-ups, ring dips, handstand push-ups, and muscle ups.
The RX Gymnastics Course is my solution to help people progress at these movements in conjunction with their regular training at their own CrossFit box with short 10-15 minute bodyweight strength training sessions before or after class.
The RX Gymnastics program is an accessory bodyweight strength program specifically for people who are training at a CrossFit facility.
I’ve organized it so that each movement is broken down into 5 levels. Each time you complete that levels objective you can move to the next level. For example, when a person can get their first strict pull-up they move from level 1 to level 2 for pull-ups. I love this because it gives individuals clear and manageable objectives as they progress towards being able to RX CrossFit workouts that have a bodyweight movement.
On top of the course, I also spent a weekend at the gym filming a HD movement library that shows the correct technique for over 90 progressions that are used in the program.
All-in-all I am very happy with it and am looking forward to hearing success stories in the coming months. To learn more, here are some blog posts that have the first 2 levels each of the movements.
