Words from Head Coach Ramon Gysin:

„We spent a great time in Boston seeing old friends and making new ones. I love competing in the WDFPF because the atmosphere is very friendly.

It is two days of lifting and everybody, Teenagers, Seniors and Masters, men and women, competes together on the same platform. Athletes are cheering for each other, helping each other out. Our federation is very inclusive and the community is strong.

The anti doping rules are the most strict in the world. Cheaters get banned for life. They are not allowed to come back, unlike other sports or federations. Hence it’s the drug free federation, not only drug tested. Nevertheless, last year, 10 people have been caught using illegal substances.

Being abroad is always a great opportunity to see other CrossFit Boxes.

Powerlifting is a very safe sport. We rarely have injuries happening at our competitions.

The benefits of strength training are well documented and established. It’s not unusual to have athletes competing into their 80s in our federation. You build muscle which supports your skeleton. Strength training is the practical application of basic physics. You learn to control external objects, being aware of optimal body and object position.

Powerlifting is a very healthy sport. More people should lift. In fact, people working an office job should lift. Most people don’t think about it, but you move into a nursing home once you are not strong enough anymore to fulfill everyday activities. The longer you are strong, the longer you will be independent.

Consistency, listening to your body, patience. Respecting the process will make you strong. Being strong (and fit in general) gives you more opportunities in life.

Start easy, only 2h of training a week can lead to great results already! Try a Powerlifting or CrossFit class at our box.

Finding time to calm down before a competition is crucial. The Boston area is beautiful!

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.

Headcoach Ramon Gysin about this week of competition:

‚WOW. Muscle Ups as a first movement in a WOD during the Opens. What a nightmare. That is so mean. Blabla. No, this is not mean. This is CrossFit. It’s a challenge. Face the challenge. Have no Muscle Up? You have one year to work on it. And you know what? THIS is fair. YOU have one year to learn that skill. If you really want it, you will have your Muscle Up by next years Games Open. Here’s a detailed analysis and description of how many people managed their first Muscle Up within this years Games Open.

Back to our performance:

I am pretty proud of our girls – they did a fantastic job and overcame their fear of doing Muscle Ups. We had a bunch of girls who managed to absolve several rounds. Fantastic. Unfortunately, the guys weren’t able to keep up this time. For the teams, it would have been so important to have guys coming into the third or even forth round with Wall Balls and Double Unders.

Rank 42 in this WOD allows us to stay overall on rank 35. Everything is possible but we have to perform extremely well in the last two WOD’s. We will do!!‘

Reebok CrossFit Games Open 2015 – let’s do this!

It is THIS time of the year again!!

The season 2015 begins with the worldwide CROSSFIT GAMES OPEN – on February 26 2015!! Our ambition is to qualify for the CrossFit Regionals Europe where we were part of since 2011 – challenge accepted!!

 

What are the CrossFit Games? 

Anyone can sign up to compete in five workouts over five weeks and post their scores online. Last year, the Open reached more than 209,000 athletes from around the world. The next stage of the CrossFit Games season are the CrossFit Regionals. Competitors need to finish near the top of their region’s Leaderboard. The top five men, five women and five teams at the end of each three-day regional competition will receive invitations to the CrossFit Games in the US, where the fittest person on Earth will be crowned.

Judges will score the performance and you will have to submit your results to the Games site online. A new workout will be released every Thursdaynight within these five weeks (end of Open Games: March 30th, 2015). A scaled option of the Open workout will be released each week of the Open too. With reduced loading or less challenging movements, the scaled option will be designed to make the Open even more accessible.

CrossFit Basel at the CrossFit Games Regionals Europe since 2011!

Let’s take a quick review on CrossFit Basel’s performances at the CrossFit Games Open/Regionals:

The first time we sent athletes to the CrossFit Games Regionals Europe was back in 2011. Coach Claudia competed in the category Women Individuals and placed 18th. Read the article from back in the days here!

We did not miss out on the Regionals in 2012 and competed as a team and individual. The team placed 18th and Ramon Gysin who competed as Individual won Event 5, the ‚Snatch Ladder‘. He made it to the final and finished strong with a 15th place out of 60 athletes!

Also, see the ladies team in action!

2013: Tom Schwander (ranked 47) and Nadine Steinger (ranked 33) entered the Regionals as Individuals, plus we sent two teams!

This time the teams finished with a strong 19th and 23rd place.

2014: Again last year, a team of our best athletes travelled to Copenhagen to take the challenge of the CrossFit Games Regionals Europe. This time they came in 15th!!

We are certainly proud of our qualifications 4 times in a row and will give our best to be part of the Regional Games in Copenhagen this year as well. Also important to point out is that the teams of athletes varied from year to year. Overall, we sent TWENTY different athletes to the Reebok CrossFit Games Regionals Europe during these four years. This shows that we follow a concept and strategy that works. Considering that the qualifications get tougher each year, we can be proud to be well in the loop with the fittest people on Earth.

Become a Judge!! 

In order to keep up with the international standards, all workouts must be scored by certified judges. Anyone who is interested is allowed or better asked to take this course and become a judge! You can simply take the course of six modules here. This course includes general information on competition rules, regulations and common movements. If you already absolved the course or have any questions about it, contact us at email at web@crossfitbasel.ch.

You can watch two videos of the three qualification rounds here.

6 of the athletes absolved their first international competition (Alessia, Jessica, Basil, Denise, Benaja and Sascha). Sascha and Denise represented the required master athletes of the team. Jessica travelled along as a cover up athlete, and kept the team in good spirits.

All in all, 9 events and the final event had to be absolved within these two days. Saturday was covered by events 1-6, whereas the remaining events took place on Sunday. Have a look at the programming of the events here.

To start off the competition right, our team won event 01A: 1 max rep Snatch, 1 max rep Frontsquat with a total weight of 1305kg. Event 5, which consisted of 10m sprint / Med Ball Throw-Over Shoulder (75kg/45kg) / 10m sprint was dominated by the ladies of the team who placed first – as a full team, they finished in second place. Here’s the video of the male’s performance!

They came in 7th in the last final event and stayed persistent with their power and strength all the way throughout the two competition days. Despite a minimum of preparation for the competition, the team reached a fantastic fourth place overall with 251 points.
