Swiss Team CHallenge 2019 @ CrossFit Basel

(English version below)

SUN’S OUT, GUNS OUT! Es ist wieder Zeit für unsere grosse Team CHallenge!

Am Samstag, 22. Juni 2019 findet zum zehnten Mal der grösste Team Wettkampf im deutschsprachigen Europa statt, die Swiss Team CHallenge (2018: 668 Teams/ 2672 athletes!). Der Anlass wird organisiert von CrossFit Basel (Ramon Gysin) und CrossFit Leman (Euan Robertson).

In allen CrossFit Boxen der ganzen Schweiz werden Teams gebildet, welche in drei Kategorien (Rookies, Regulars und Firebreathers) lokal in den jeweiligen Affiliates gegeneinander antreten. Die Resultate werden live online übertragen und ausgewertet. Die Teams bestehen aus vier Leuten, von welchen mindestens eine Frau und ein Mann dabei sein muss.

Die Teams messen sich in mehreren Events, welche vor der CHallenge bekannt gegeben werden. Zudem wird es – wie bereits in den vergangenen Jahren – wieder entsprechende Videos geben, worauf die Standards ersichtlich sind.

Die Workouts sind so kreiert, dass möglichst viele Athletinnen und Athleten egal (EGAL!) welchen Niveaus teilnehmen können. Die Athleten der Kategorie Firebreathers beherrschen 80% der vorgeschriebenen Übungen auf dem Whiteboard – die Regular Athleten absolvieren eine skalierte Version der Workouts und in der Rookie Kategorie können ALLE mitmachen. Also nochmal: ALLE können teilnehmen, alles was Ihr braucht ist ein Team und viel Motivation!

Die Swiss Team CHallenge ist der grösste Event in unserer Box und wir hoffen, dass sich dieses Ereignis niemand entgehen lässt! Es ist ein einmaliges Erlebnis, als WettkämpferIn dabei zu sein und mitzufiebern. Wir versprechen einen spektakulären Tag mit viel Schweiss, Urschreien, einer genialen CrossFit Community, Party und gutem Essen. Dabei sein ist ein MUSS!

WOD

14min AMRAP in To2:
15 KB swings
15 burpees

Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do. – Pope John XXIII

CrossFit Games Open 2019 // RECAP

It’s done! Once again.

The CrossFit Open: every year, these five weeks stir up mixed emotions. A cocktail of expectancy, high hopes, impatience and joy mixed with apprehension, respect and maybe a pinch of fear.

The Open 2019 ended with 19.5. A nasty WOD witch included 105 thrusters and 105 chest to bar pull ups!

33-27-21-15-9 reps for time of:
95-lb. thrusters
Chest-to-bar pull-ups

Time cap: 20 minutes

Looks simple and „easy“ but it was a real mindf**k. A nice grueling finisher after 5 weeks of pure CrossFit. „Constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity.“

Some people are happy that it’s over. Sleepless Thursday-nights before the workout-announcement. The fear for Burpees and Thrusters…sore muscles and pain faces all over the place.

But as tough it was, it was also a great time to grow as a person and as a community. We had 106 CFBS/Downtown-Athletes who signed up for the Open 2019! Great work peeps! The team spirit was awesome and it was beautiful to see how you guys are helping each other out by cheering and offering support. That’s what those times are about. Growing stronger – physically and physiologically as a human.

This year the Open showed the direction of how the sport is developing. Weights and skills are getting „heavier“. The first time in history we saw a strict movement at the Open! More people chose the scaled variation. But that’s not a bad thing. It’s just an option to make the experience possible for more people. It is also showing us that almost nothing is impossible and that there’s always a way to improve and „get better than yesterday“.

Now some numbers and final performance analysis:

CFBS-CFBS Downtown Top Ten Leaderboard:

 

 

 

 

 

Congrats to Markus Wellenreiter who earned the title of the fittest of the Box!

If we look at the men’s leaderboard we see Markus in the first place, Stephan Metzger second and Coach Marco and David share third place.

 

 

CFBS / Downtown WOMEN

On the women’s side, we see Coach Alice in first place. Just one point ahead of Lani Messner. Third place goes to our head coach of CrossFit Basel Downtown Pascale Herrmann.

So much respect for you all! Lifetime goals…just sayin’…

FINAL standings of CrossFit Basel and CrossFit Basel Downtowns internal Open competition:

Team Fight Clap secured the victory but the rest is very close together! Congrats to Team Fight Clap and their captains Linda Bräutigam and Lena Gebhart!

THANK YOU!

Now it’s time to say thank you to everyone who was involved and helped to make all this possible.

Fist I want to thank the Team Captains. You managed your team, where there if needed, ordered and designed shirts, answered thousands of questions and organized some team events outside of the box! 

Thanks for your effort Lani Messner, Jolanda Holzherr, Tabea Jandt, Linda Bräutigam, Lena Gebhart and Francis Fink. Without you the Open like we know it wouldn’t be possible!

Next are our photographers Lucie Pfändler and G-Jay. They came late at night or at the weekend to the box to capture these magical moments at the box. Maybe they captured someone’s first muscle up, outstanding performance or just some pain faces. Still, we are very grateful that you were there and took these cool pictures.

At the last Saturday, we had CrossFit DACH visiting us. Thanks a lot to Marcus Mcclain for coming over, do a lifestream on crossfitdeutschland Instagram account, bring some shirts and meat for the party later! In this manner, I want to thank Bejtula Jasari as well. He organized some or rather a lot of beverages for the party!

We must not forget the coaches. They did a lot of overtime in these 5 weeks, had to manage the special classes on Friday, answered all the questions about the Open and still had to perform when they did the WOD themselves. Thanks a lot for your extra effort over this exhausting time!

Last but not least we want to thank everyone who participated in this years CrossFit Games Open. It doesn’t matter if you are a veteran, master, teen or first-timer, all of you have done your best and earned the title of a survivor of the Open! It was every single time a pleasure to come to the box and see each of you perform, struggle or succeed. The atmosphere over this time is different and breathtaking. So much energy, support, laughter, sweat in one place – that’s just great!

I’m really looking forward to the next CrossFit Games Open which takes place in October already. Now it’s time to recover and get back into training as soon as possible. There is no time to waste. Take the energy from the Open with you into every single CrossFit Class and try to become the best version of you.

Foundation is key!

Coach Marco

——————————————————————————————————————–

Some „deep thoughts“ at the end:

The Open are always my favorite time of the year, when we live and breath CrossFit. The Open’s essence is the community and high intensity. The simple beauty of CrossFit. 

Teaching CrossFit at Trainer Courses we would always joke, that in a globo gym nobody would cheer at you doing bicep curls. And it’s true. During the Open so many new personal bests get achieved because of the support of others. People cross barriers, become better athletes, overcome weaknesses and perform well over their expectations simply because the crowd is cheering them to do so. The Open is a catalyst of the possible. People doing things they thought are not possible for them, mentally as well as physically. Hard work pays off. 

Personally, I love the thrill of the Open workouts, the set-up, the late night nervosity. I love to do the workouts in one of the official heats with other members. Bit of shit talk here and there. But I also want to perform well and I will go well beyond my comfort zone, something I would not do so well being alone with a judge.

I want to thank all participants and the captains, Marco and all the coaches for their help, their support but also for their great effort. It was a fantastic five weeks!

Stay strong and keep going. 

Headcoach Ramon

REEBOK CROSSFIT GAMES OPEN 2019 19.5

Open Workout 19.5

Like every year, there are no CrossFit Open without thrusters and chest to bar pull ups!
This year we had to manage 105 repetitions of each of them. Not an easy task. Only a few members were able to finish all this reps within the 20-minute time cap.

Congrats to everybody who was able to finish this WOD!

Workout 19.5

33-27-21-15-9 reps for time of:
95-lb. thrusters
Chest-to-bar pull-ups

Time cap: 20 minutes

All details here.

Our box owner itself showed us how it is done. Ramon finished the WOD in 16 minute and 44 seconds – first place of the CrossFit Basel and CrossFit Basel Downtown. Also our Head coach from CrossFit Basel Downtown Pascale Hermann showed the girls how to handle the thrusters and chest to bar pull ups. She finished the WOD in 17 minutes and 41 seconds!

After this WOD the overall CFBS-Top-Ten-leaderboard looks like this:

The Top 3 Men for 19.5 at CrossFit Basel and CF Basel Downtown are:

The Top 3 Women for 19.5 at CrossFit Basel and CF Basel Downtown are:

This week the extra points for Team spirit go to Team Jolani. The two captains did the WOD late in the evening after Jolanda came back from the Olympic Lifting competition while everybody was already drinking beer and had BBQ. The updated and final leaderboard looks like this:

Congrats to team Fight clap! With a nice team spirit and some team events outside of the box, you definitely earned this title.

REEBOK CROSSFIT GAMES OPEN 2019 19.4

Open Workout 19.4

Our prayers were not answered! No Open without Burpees.
And not too few of them.
With the muscle ups or chin over bar pull-ups in the second part, the gymnastics skills were also required.

Headcoach Ramon Gysin (Host, Secretaire SDFPF):

„I am very happy with the performance of our team, they did a great job. Plenty of personal bests and swiss records being achieved. Thanks to Marco who was in charge of the event, thanks to all volunteers for their hard work, thanks to the judges and my fellow SDFPF comitee, congrats to all fellow athletes, we spent a great day of lifting together.

The youngest athlete was 15, the oldest 79. Everybody can compete in Powerlifting. Strength Training is important for Health and the Sport of Powerlifting is all about showing control over the loads you move, the rules are very strict. Try it! Lifting weights is not dangerous, not doing anything IS dangerous.

“No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.”—Socrates

“Don’t cheat the world of your contribution. Give it what you’ve got.” —Steven Pressfield

Body, mind and soul, all needs to be in balance. To function, the body needs some sort of resistance training, otherwise muscles will become weak, you are more vulnerable. A fit body gives me more options. And a fit body is necessary for a fit mind. So I strongly believe in being fit to be able to contribute more AND LONGER.  Happy lifting!“

What is Powerlifting?

Every athlete has three attempts in the following three exercises (Powerlifts). The total of the best lifts count towards the total.

Backsquat:

275.5kg Backsquat 2 – Ramon Gysin @99.3kg – Powerlifting WC (WDFPF) 2014 Chisinau Moldova from CrossFit Basel on Vimeo.

Bench Press:

170kg Bench Press 3 – Ramon Gysin @99.3kg – Powerlifting WC (WDFPF) 2014 Chisinau Moldova from CrossFit Basel on Vimeo.

Deadlift:

WR 207.5kg Deadlift 3 – Nora Jäggi @74.3kg – Powerlifting WC (WDFPF) 2014 Chisinau Moldova from CrossFit Basel on Vimeo.

You can also compete in Single Lift Competitions where you choose to compete in one, two, or all three lifts, but get ranked separately in each lift.

There are raw competitions where only a belt is allowed and there are equipped competitions (single ply => one layer of suits/equipment and multi ply => several layers of equipment) where athletes wear assistant suits, briefs and knee wraps to be able to lift much more weight.

Team CrossFit Basel is competing raw.

What is the WDFPF?

The World Drug Free Powerlifting Federation was established to give drug free lifters a home as in most strength sports there is no or little drug testing. In fact there is no other sports federation (including ALL olympic sports!) in the world today that knows such severe punishment like the WDFPF. If an athlete is tested positive he or she will be banned FOR LIFE and all past results will be erased.

The WDFPF is also an inclusive federation, all athletes, no matter what age, are competing at the same venue at the same competition together, ranked in their respective weight and age classes.

REEBOK CROSSFIT GAMES OPEN 2019 19.3

With 19.3 we got a new movement in the open. The STRICT handstand push up.

50 strict handstand push-ups
200-ft. handstand walk

This hard WOD wasn’t easy to manage. Even the „scaled“ version included strict HSPU and 50 DB box step ups. But when the hair is still on point and you can still smile – the world is all right!

After this repeater the overall CFBS-Top-Ten-leaderboard looks like this:

The Top 3 Men for 19.3 at CrossFit Basel and CF Basel Downtown are:

REEBOK CROSSFIT GAMES OPEN 2019 19.2

Open Workout 19.2

19.2 was a repeater of 16.2, so some knew the struggle already.

Did you improve your score?

Workout 19.2

Beginning on an 8-minute clock, complete as many reps as possible of:
25 toes-to-bars
50 double-unders
15 squat cleans, 135 lb.
25 toes-to-bars
50 double-unders
13 squat cleans, 185 lb.
If completed before 8 minutes, add 4 minutes to the clock and proceed to:
25 toes-to-bars
50 double-unders
11 squat cleans, 225 lb.
If completed before 12 minutes, add 4 minutes to the clock and proceed to:
25 toes-to-bars
50 double-unders
9 squat cleans, 275 lb.
If completed before 16 minutes, add 4 minutes to the clock and proceed to:
25 toes-to-bars
50 double-unders
7 squat cleans, 315 lb.

Stop at 20 minutes.

All details here.

The combination of weightlifting and gymnastics offered something for everyone. Some had trouble with the double-unders or the toes-to-bar, others with the heavy lifts. So everyone has still room for improvement.
