REEBOK CROSSFIT GAMES OPEN 2019 19.3

Open Workout 19.2

WhatsApp Image 2017-02-25 at 17.40.59

Thursdaynight/ Fridaynight, February the 22th 2019, the first WOD of the CrossFit Games Open was released. Some woke up at night to check their phones. Everyone was excited to see what’s going on.

And there it was: …

Workout 19.2

  • 10 DB

Men 50lb dumbbell /24 inch box
Women 35lb dumbbell /20 inch box

All details here.

Looks quite easy but it was a real Sucker. 

With the Dumbbell Snatches also a new equipment and movement has been introduced.

I would like to quote Ramons‘ words about the Open:

One year ago I already wrote:

„First week down. The box is literally vibrating. Five weeks in which everyone is nervous and the air is full of tension.

I love the opens and I hate it as well. I love it, because people seem to be more alive. They want to achieve something – they have goals they want to reach, they compete against each other and training with equipment as weights and an amazon exercise ball really help them to fulfill this purpose. I love to see their smiles if they did much better than expected.

I also love to see their fear cause I know this experience will teach them a lesson in life as well.

I hate it (sarcasm right there ;)) because it is extremely time consuming and it’s hardly possible to get any other work done during these five weeks. Our team invests plenty of extra time and effort to make this happen for you!“

Well, this did not really change! It’s one of my favourite times of the year, people are alive, they share there success, they suffer together, workout together, have fun together!

120 athletes registered for our two boxes! Amazing!

After that nice suckfest the overall CFBS-Top-Ten-leaderboard looks like this:

The Team is currently sitting on place 81 in europe but we have to wait till the deadline is over. CFHQ seems to have big IT-troubles and they extended the period to submit your score. We’re still wondering how many Re- and Re-Redo’s happened…

But for now we have 7 Girls in the Top 20 in switzerland:

Alessia Joy Wälchli (first place!), Jana Sollberger, Sarah Mentzen, Aline Seebacher, Nora Jäggi, Jessica Preis, Katrin Luethy.

The Top 5 at CrossFit Basel and CFBaselDowntown are:

  • Alessia (11:41)
  • Jana (13:24)
  • Sarah (14:11)
  • Aline (14:15)
  • Nora (14:24)
  • Ramon Gysin (15:04)
  • Sascha Albini (15:06)
  • Joel Wächter (15:28)
  • Tom Schwander (16:13)
  • Benoit Luthy (16:16)

We want to give a special mention to our masters! There are 16 Masters from division 35-59 (!) which belong to the fittest Top 20!  Respekt!

F.ex. Sascha is on first place in the 40-44 years group and Jana (2.) and Katrin (4.) are Top 5 in the 35-39 division in Switzerland. Way to go!

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

Very close! On the third place: The Bomb Squad with the best Spirit, marketing and merchandising.

The Bully-Buddies aka Team Tizi are second. Quietly hidden but successfull.

The DT Outlaws are at the top! Maybe also because of the power of the powerbelly himself? Anyway: Slothfit for life!

Let’s see what next! 17.2 is near.

Headcoach Ramon Gysin:

„The event went very smooth, a big thank you goes out to all volunteers who helped setting up the stage on Friday night and during the competition day! Thanks to the judges and congrats to all fellow athletes!

I am very happy with the performance of our team, they did a great job. Plenty of personal bests and records being achieved!

The youngest athlete was 17, the oldest 60. 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

We are made to move. Hence this is what I try to do every day. The other magic trick I use 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.  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.

RESULTS SWISS TEAM CHALLENGE 2019 @ CrossFit Basel


-DE- English below-

#STCH2019 #workouttogether #havefuntogether

Das diesjährige Motto wurde voll erfüllt!

Zum 10. Jährigen Jubiläum der Swiss Team CHallenge nahmen rund 766 Teams (über 3000 CrossFit-AthletInnen), in über 80 Boxen schweizweit die Challenge in Angriff.

Davon 9 Firebreather, 26 Regular und 5 Rookie Teams die in unserer Box, CrossFit Basel antraten. Wir freuten uns auch dieses Jahr wieder über den Besuch von externen Teams und senden viele Grüsse an Reebok CrossFit Augsburg, CrossFit Barbell Bros und CrossFit Lörrach! Großartig, dass ihr da ward!

Schon um 8h startete die Registration und der erste Kaffee wurde an der Bar gezaubert und um 8:45h konnten wir alle Teilnehmer und Zuschauer begrüssen. Die Aufregung vor dem ersten Event um 9h stieg langsam…

Event 1/WOD 1 & 2 war ein klassischer Auftakt für die Swiss Team CHallenge. Eine Person stehts auf dem Rower und die anderen drei kämpften sich durch Double Unders, KB swings, KB snatches, Handstand push ups, sowohl strict als auch kipping, und box jumps. Wer es soweit schaffte und das Ende erreichte, wurde mit AMRAP Partner Wall Balls belohnt. Absprache und Zusammenarbeit waren gefragt. Danach waren alle gut aufgewärmt und endgültig im Wettkampf-Modus!

Event 2 bestand aus 3 separat gewerteten Teilen. Wod 3 war ein 5min AMRAP Barbell Complex, bestehend aus jeweils 5 shoulder to overhead, 5 frontsquats und 5 power cleans. Ohne Pause gings dann in den heavy Teil der Swiss Team CHallenge. 10 Minuten hatten die TeilnehmerInnen Zeit um ihr 1 RM Clean and Jerk des Tages zu finden, es durfte nur eine Stange verwendet werden. Das Stresslevel stieg kurz an um Gewichte zusammen zu zählen und die Stange richtig zu beladen. Im Anschluss folgte wieder ein 5 Minuten AMRAP bestehend aus Ring Muscle up oder ring pull ups, Handstandwalk oder bearcrawl und Pistols oder Box step ups. Hier konnte man seine Skills zeigen.

Vor Event 3/WOD 8 & 9 wurden die bisherigen Ergebnisse ausgewertet und die letzten Heatlisten erstellt. Ausreichend Zeit um sich etwas in der Sonne zu entspannen, sich zu stärken und mit einem kalten Shake oder anderem Kaltgetränk an der Bar zu erfrischen. Bei dieser Gelegenheit ein fettes Dankeschön und Respekt an alle Helfer und Judges für die tolle Arbeit! Bereits zu diesem Zeitpunkt hattet ihr schon Grosses geleistet!

Event 3 bestand aus burpees, snatches, pull ups, thrusters, chest to bar pull ups, HEAVY partner deadlifts und bar muscle ups. Die Firebreathers durften einiges davon sogar synchron ausführen. Was für eine Stimmung zum Schluss!

Ein Time Cap von 26 Minuten war gesetzt. Für einige war früher Schluss, einige mussten bis zur letzten Minute kämpfen.

Das Geschrei und die Musik waren laut, die Stimmung war bombig und danach sah es auch so aus. Als hätte eine Bombe eingeschlagen. Grosses Kino. Alle waren erschöpft aber zufrieden als auch das letzte Heat gegen 18:00 durch war.

Im Anschluss wurde die ganzen Ranglisten schnellstmöglich erstellt und die Rangverkündigung begann.

Unsere Ranglisten für CrossFit Basel sieht folgendermassen aus:

Rookies:

1. Platz – Rock it out Rookies

2. Patz – Barbell Bros Rookies

3. Platz – Master Mix

Regulars:

1. Platz – MaMa RoSa

2. Patz – Mittagstisch

3. Platz – intimimteam

Firebreathers:

1. Platz – Traktor-Panzers

2. Platz – IKARUS

3. Platz – Obelix und die Lauchs

Wir sind stolz auf euch ALLE! Es war toll zu erleben, wie motiviert ihr seid und wie der Sport uns verbindet. Bleibt dran, habt Spass und es wird spannend sein, zu sehen, was wir noch alles gemeinsam erreichen können.

Man kann es nicht oft genug erwähnen: Ein grosses Dankeschön geht an die Organisatoren und das Team von CrossFit Basel und CrossFit Leman, an die „Ganztageshelfer“ beim Scoring (Pedee und Nicole!), an der Registration (Maike, Franziska), beim Auf- und Umbau (CrossFit Basel Coaches, Samuel, David, Alice, Pascale) und allen (!) Judges – einfach an jeden Helfer für jeden noch so „kleinen“ Handschlag und geplanten oder spontanen Einsatz! An Jaz für die Unterhaltung. An Nane Sele und an Döne für die top Verpflegung, Meat and Greet die mit ihrem Foodtruck vor Ort waren und uns mit Burgern versorgten und die Jungs und Mädels an der Bar. Ebenfalls ein grosses Dankeschön geht an unsere Sponsoren Nocco und Marcus Mcclain von CrossFit DACH und crossfitdeutschland. Last but not least natürlich auch an die starken Teams und an das fantastische Publikum!

SWISS TEAM CHALLENGE 2019

#STCH2017 #Teamup #evenbigger

I think this year’s motto has been fulfilled!

For the tenth anniversary of the Swiss Team CHallenge, 766 teams, over 3000 CrossFit athletes, tackled the challenge in over 80 boxes throughout Switzerland. Of these, 9 firebreathers, 26 regular and 5 rookie teams competed in our box, CrossFit Basel. We were also happy about the visit of external teams this year and send many greetings to Reebok CrossFit Augsburg, CrossFit Barbell Bros and CrossFit Lörrach! It was great that you were here!

The registration started at 8am and the first coffee was conjured up at the bar. Nane Sele set up the stove for the hungry pack and at 8: 45h we welcomed all participants and spectators. The excitement before the first event at 9am rose slowly.

Event 1 / WOD 1 & 2 was a classic prelude to the Swiss Team Challenge. One person is standing on the rower and the other three fought their way through Double Unders, KB swings, KB snatches, handstand push ups, both strict and kipping, and box jumps. If you made it to the end, you were then rewarded with AMRAP Wall Balls. Agreement and cooperation were required. After that, everyone was well warmed up and finally in the mode!

Event 2 consisted of 3 separate parts. Wod 3 was a 5min AMRAP Barbell Complex consisting of 5 shoulder to overhead, 5 front squats and 5 power cleans. Without a break we went into the heavy part of the Swiss Team Challenge. For 10 minutes the participants had time to find their 1 RM Clean and Jerk of the day. The problem here, it was only allowed to use one barbell. This was followed by a 5 minute AMRAP ring of ring muscle up or ring pull ups, handstand walk or bearcrawl and pistols or box step ups. Here you could show your skills.

Event 3 / WOD 8 & 9 the previous results were evaluated and the last heat lists were created. Enough time to relax in the sun, fortify yourself and refresh yourself with a cold shake or cold drink at the bar. On this occasion, a big thank you and respect to all helpers and judges for the great work! Already at that time, you had done a great job! Event 3 consisted of burpees, snatches, pull ups, thrusters, chest to bar pull ups, HEAVY deadlifts and bar muscle ups. The Firebreathers were even forced to do some of this synchronized. What a mood at the end! A time cap of 26 minutes was set. Some had an end earlier, some had to fight until the last minute.

The screaming and the music was loud, the atmosphere was awesome and after that it looked like that. As if a bomb had hit. Big cinema. All were exhausted but satisfied as the last heat was around 18:00.

Afterwards, the whole rankings were created as fast as possible and the announcement of the rank began.

Our ranking lists for CrossFit Basel are as follows:

Rookies:

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:

CFBS / Downtown WOMEN

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

Congrats to everybody who was able to finish this WOD!

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!

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