REEBOK CROSSFIT GAMES OPEN 2018 18.4

Open Workout 18.4

Thursday night/ Friday morning, March 16th, 2018, the 4th WOD of the CrossFit Games Open 2018 was released.

Headcoach Ramon Gysin about 18.4

18.4 was controversy and surprising at the same time. Controversy,  because half of the CrossFit community was literally bitching and whining about the new handstand push-up (HSPU) standard. It is certainly tough, but it demands a proper range of motion, active shoulders and midline stabilization, in order to reach the required height with your heels. All of this makes it a well executed HSPU. If you trained your HSPU with a too wide grip, lack of midline stabilization and no active shoulders all year long, sure thing you are going to struggle with it. Virtuosity is doing the common uncommon well. If your form is sloppy in your daily WOD, it will certainly not help you in the Open.

Surprising, because of new movements. We have never seen handstand walks or bear crawl before.

Great stuff, I really liked this WOD! Looking forward to 18.5, which can be voted by the community. Three different WODs are in the mix, the community chooses which one is going to be thrown down.

Workout 18.4

For time:

21 deadlifts (weight 1)
21 handstand push-ups
15 deadlifts (weight 1)
15 handstand push-ups
9 deadlifts (weight 1)
9 handstand push-ups
21 deadlifts (weight 2)
50-ft. handstand walk
15 deadlifts (weight 2)
50-ft. handstand walk
9 deadlifts (weight 2)
50-ft. handstand walk

Time cap: 9 minutes

VARIATIONS

Rx (Ages 16-54)
Men deadlift 225 lb. then 315 lb.
Women deadlift 155 lb. then 205 lb.

Scaled (Ages 16-54)
Men deadlift 135 lb. and perform hand-release push-ups,
then deadlift 185 lb. and bear crawl
Women deadlift 95 lb. and perform hand-release push-ups,
then deadlift 135 lb. and bear crawl

All details here

A lot of athletes did RX, what means it was PR-time doing their first Handstand push-ups! The new handstand push-up standards were challenging, also for experienced athletes. In any case, it left all of us dizzy.

How the CrossFit Basel athletes performed

Women

Alessia Wälchli is now placed 7th in Women Europe South, she had the 6th best result (08:45) in 18.4 in Europe South. Her chances to qualify for the CrossFit Games Regionals are excellent. Alessia now shares the first place in Switzerland with Ursula Fasel and Ana C. Caldas. Also good rankings in the category Women Switzerland have:

  • 10.  Jessica Preiss (5th (146 Reps) best result in 18.4 in Switzerland)
  • 30. Lani Messner

 

Women 35+

Dora Seebacher still holds the 7th place after 18.4 in Women 60+ in Europe South, she is still first in Women 60+ in Switzerland. Instead of handstand push-ups the category Women 60+ had to do push press with 29kg. Dora fought for her repetitions – well done! Marie Lavina is currently 22nd in Women 55-59 in Europe South and  5th in Switzerland.

After 18.4 Sarah „Särri“ Mentzen still holds the 8th place in Women 35-39 in Switzerland. Gail McBride is currently 13th in Women 40-44 in Switzerland and Doene Bonina moved forward to the 18th place in the same category. Rachel Elend holds the 10th place in the category Women 45-49 in Switzerland.

 

Men

Sascha Albini moved to forward to the 2nd place after 18.4 in Men 40-44 in Europe South, he is now sharing the first place in Men 40-44 in Switzerland with Beni Bachmann.

After 18.4  Joel Wächter fell little back on the 15th place, Tom Schwander is currently on 17th place in Men Switzerland. Markus Wellenreiter is currently on the 7th place in Men 35-39 in Switzerland.

In the category Men 55-59 are still two athletes from CFBS – Adrian Gasser is currently 4th in Switzerland and David Stöckli is still on the 5th place. Esteban Pombo is 6th in Men 60+ in Switzerland.

TEAM

The CrossFit Basel Team is currently on the excellent 10th place in Europe South! In Switzerland, we are on the 3rd place.

Results Swiss Powerlifting Championship 2018 (SDFPF) – Colombier

WE ARE PROUD TO BE STRONG!

CrossFit Basel was represented by three athletes at the Swiss Powerlifting Championships 2018 (SDFPF) in Colombier NE. All three athletes won their category and they got 3 new swiss records. Congratulations!

Our lifting Team currently holds 99 swiss, 12 european and 10 world records!

Headcoach Ramon Gysin:

„#intheopen but still doing other great stuff, such as lifting heavy shit. Accompanied by Sarah Mentzen and Monika Kohler-Wiesli I competed in my 10th Swiss Powerlifting Championships straight, unbroken since 2009.

I have competed in three different weight categories over the past 9 years and I was able to win everytime, I never missed one. Even coming back from Injuries I still managed to compete and get ready for the comp. Part of it is the nature of the sport:

I hear it almost every day (the average swiss person has unfortunately no clue about physics): „lifting heavy is dangerous, be careful with your back, you only have one“. No, douchebag, it’s exactly the opposite. BECAUSE I care, I lift. In our sport, humans compete at the worlds highest level still in their 40s. There are many 80+ years old who are so much stronger than most in their mid-twenties. Lifting with correct technique has so many benefits with very little risk involved. Mass is not force. Lifting in controlled manner is very beneficial for your long term health. Crossing the street is dangerous. Lifting is healthy.

We are not born and made as desk jockeys. But here we are and sit for hours every day. Most of us have never done any real labour. Hence as a society we are literally weak as fuck. It is almost embarrassing how weak we are and how low the standards have gotten. It’s is so normal we don’t even realise it. This might sound harsh, but it is reality and I do not shy away to speak out loud about it. And the next generation will be worse. Degeneration. #rantover

“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

We are made to move. Hence this is what I try to do every day. The other magic trick I used is the following: Don’t do stupid shit! If you think you will get hurt, don’t do it. If you don’t know HOW to do it, ask somebody who knows or, if you are smart enough to distinguish good advice from bad advice, watch videos on youtube or use google. If you are in pain, do something, don’t ignore it. Find out, what it is. Heal. Train around the pain, come back, get stronger and fitter. Keep going and never stop. Just don’t stop. Don’t even think about.

“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. It’s like taking care of your car. So far as I know, I got one body and can’t renew my leasing every 4 years and get a new one. So I try to keep an eye on it. It carries my brain and my soul. 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. Not to work more and make more money. But to find YOUR thing you want to do in YOUR live. The prescription to happiness is easy, but of course it is not simple. Stay fit, take care of your body, soul and mind. Find out what you are passionate about and do it, do it right, without excuses. Share your passion with others, help and contribute by DOING and BUILDING something. And yes, the bad shit will happen anyway, inevitable. Then why worry.“

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.

The next event for our team is the Swiss Powerlifting Championship (date and location to be announced).

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 2018 18.3

Open Workout 18.3

Thursdaynight/Fridaymorning, March 9th 2018, the third WOD of the CrossFit Games Open 2018 was released.

Headcoach Ramon Gysin about 18.3

„Dave Castro announced early on before the Open started that he will destroy the „box“ in which people think about what the Open is going to test. And I think he is doing a great job so far. Given the narrow boundaries he has to operate within to make sure many people in many CrossFit Affiliates all over the world and also Garage Gym CrossFitters can execute the workouts (eg think movements, logistics, equipments), we saw new stuff every workout.

18.3 was all about one of CrossFit’s main concepts: Variance, work your weakness. Struggled with double unders last year? Still can’t do them? Struggled with any form of muscle-ups last year? Still can’t do them? Same goes with pull-ups or overhead squats. Avoiding difficult exercises will leave with you with big holes in your game. Better get comfortable with being uncomfortable and practice the stuff you are not yet good at!“

Workout 18.3

2 rounds for time of:
100 double-unders
20 overhead squats
100 double-unders
12 ring muscle-ups
100 double-unders
20 dumbbell snatches
100 double-unders
12 bar muscle-ups

Women perform 80-lb. OHS, 35-lb. DB snatches / Men perform 115-lb. OHS, 50-lb. DB snatches

Scaled: (Ages 16-54) Single Unders, chin-over-bar pull-ups                                                                 Women perform 35-lb. OHS, 20-lb. DB snatches / Men perform 45-lb. OHS, 35-lb. DB snatches

Time cap: 14 minutes

All details here

A lot of our members made the wise decision by choosing the scaled division either because of the weights  („technique first“) or because of the muscle-ups.  Nothing wrong with that! We all still have to learn and improve in many areas. Learning should never stop.

How the CrossFit Basel athletes performed

Women

Alessia Wälchli is now placed 10th after 18.3 in Women Europe South, she had the 8th best resulat (690 Reps) in 18.3 in Europe South. She is still 3rd  in Switzerland. Also good rankings in the category Women Switzerland have:

  • 13.  Jessica Preiss (5th (630 Reps) best result in 18.3 in Switzerland)
  • 32. Lani Messner

Women 35+

Dora Seebacher moved to the 7th place after 18.3 in Women 60+ in Europe South, she is still first in Women 60+ in Switzerland. Marie Lavina is currently 6th in Women 55-59 in Switzerland. Marie  had the 2nd best result in 18.3 in her category in Switzerland.

After 18.2 Sarah „Särri“ Mentzen still holds the 8th place in Women 35-39 in Switzerland. Gail McBride is currently 13th in Women 40-44 in Switzerland and also Doene Bonina is actually on the excellent 20th place in the same category.

Current standings of CrossFit Basel and CrossFit Basel Downtowns internal Open competition

The Lima Sailing Team Linda Fahrni (CrossFit Bern) and Maja Siegenthaler from Team Downtown Outlaws performed their Open Workout 18.3 in Palma de Mallorca.  Since a week they are in Palma de Mallorca to prepare the coming sailing season. The first competition will be the European-Cup 2 -7 April 2018 in Mallorca.

Maja says: „For us, CrossFit is a balance to normal strength and endurance training. We have also been persuaded to participate in the Open. We thought that this would not fit anyway, because we are never five weekends in a row in Switzerland. But this excuse did not count… so we were allowed to do 18.1 and 18.3 in Spain.

Let’s see what’s next! 18.4 is near (published Friday night 16th March 2018, 2am (am zwei am Morge unseri Zyt!) CET @https://games.crossfit.com/open) We’re still waiting for the „Repeater“…

Stay healthy and strong people!

Open Workout 18.2

Thursdaynight/ Fridaymorning, February 2nd 2018, the second WOD of the CrossFit Games Open 2018 was released.

Headcoach Ramon Gysin about 18.2

18.1 tested the aerobic system. 18.2 was short and fast. In the first half transitions mattered. Going from one movement to the other without loosing time in the transition. In the later rounds you needed the guts to keep executing the movements as fast as possible.
18.2a was right in our wheelhouse. I placed 6th in the region and our team as well. The team is now sitting in 17th position, close to a qualifying spot. We keep going.

Workout 18.2:

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 reps for time of:
Dumbbell squats
Bar-facing burpees

Women use 35-lb. dumbbells | Men use 50-lb dumbbells

Workout 18.2a

1-rep-max clean

Time cap: 12 minutes to complete 18.2 AND 18.2a

Men use 50-lb. dumbbells, women use 35-lb. dumbbells

REEBOK CROSSFIT GAMES OPEN 2018 18.1

Open Workout 18.1

Thursdaynight/ Fridaymorning, February 23rd 2018, the first WOD of the CrossFit Games Open 2018 was released. Some woke up at night to check their phones. Everyone was excited to see what’s going to be the first workout.

And there it was: Workout 18.1

Complete as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of:
8 toes-to-bars
10 dumbbell hang clean and jerks
14 / 12 cal. row

Men use 50-lb. (22.5kg) dumbbell / Women use 35-lb. (15kg) dumbbell

All details here.

Headcoach Ramon Gysin about the start of the Open:

„It’s this time of the year again! First week end down and I remember why I love the Open. For the third year in a row we are celebrating our community by building our own internal Open.

This year we have a new record in participation: 132 athletes divided in 4 teams over both of our affiliates meet for friendly competition. From Friday to Monday we meet at the Dreispitz Box to throw down Dave Castro’s WODs.

This is my 9th year of participation and I am still excited hours before I do the WOD. The Open are just special. I want to give my best, no matter how prepared I am.

Hey, this is CrossFit. Be prepared for the unknown and unknowable. When life is throwing challenges at you, you can’t step back and tell life, wait 3 months, I need to train for this. (besides, it’s the Open, same stuff different mix)

Like my old (he is old) friend Rob Powell would say: Harden the fuck up. JUST DO IT.
Just do it, suck up the thrill and ENJOY the community aspect of it.
The Open are the special time in the year, where people really show emotions.

“The magic is in the movement, the art is in the programming, the science is in the explanation, and the fun is in the community.” Greg Glassman.

Too many people are focused on the numbers. I get it, some have big goals, they work their ass off to get to the next stage. Others work their ass off to get their first pull-up or Double Under. We all work hard. But let’s not forget that the biggest thing CrossFit did, was bringing people together to work out together, to suffer, smile together and cheer each other. Few people grow on their own, most do it as part of a community, which leverages each other and people grow together. In participating in the Open, we honour the community.

18.1 was all about finding your pace and not wasting any time in the transitions.“
