Swiss Team CHallenge 2017 @ CrossFit Basel

(English version below)

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

Am Samstag, 24. Juni 2017 findet zum achten Mal der grösste Team Wettkampf im deutschsprachigen Europa statt, die Swiss Team CHallenge (2016: 449 Teams/ 1796 athletes!). Der Anlass wird organisiert von CrossFit Basel und CrossFit Leman.

In allen CrossFit Boxen der ganzen Schweiz werden Teams gebildet, welche in zwei Kategorien (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. 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!

Wer uns gerne als Helfer oder Judge unterstützen möchte, darf eine Mail an sarah@crossfitbasel.ch schreiben. Danke im Voraus!

Achtet auf die Plakate, die in der Box aushängen, auf welchen ihr euch und euer Team eintragen müsst.

Wir bieten Platz für 48 Teams – first come, first served.

Ausländische Teams nehmen auch dieses Jahr wieder (zum zweiten) Mal an der offiziellen, schweizweiten Wertung teil (sofern sie in einer Schweizer Box antreten) und können sich per Mail anmelden (siehe unten).

Die WODs und STANDARDS werden vor dem Wettkampf publiziert. Unter anderem findet ihr diese auf der offiziellen Facebookpage:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Swiss-Team-CHallenge/225674454288557?fref=ts

Zudem schreibt der Captain eine Mail an sarah@crossfitbasel.ch mit allen Namen der Athletinnen und Athleten, sowie deren T-Shirt-Grössen und Mailadressen.

JUDGES: Wir suchen noch Judges – meldet euch bitte bei: sarah@crossfitbasel.ch
Man kann auch judgen UND als Athlet teilnehmen.
Das Judges Meeting findet am Montag den 19.Juni , 20:00 – 22:00 Uhr in der Box Dreispitz statt.

Wenn ihr nicht teilnehmt, kommt zum Zuschauen und Anfeuern! Je mehr Unterstützung unsere Teams haben, desto besser.

Results Swiss Powerlifting Championships (SDFPF) 2016 – Lausanne

26389240985_d6f490c17f_z

WE ARE PROUD TO BE STRONG!

On Sunday, March 20th, the Swiss Drug Free Powerlifting Federation (part of WDFPF) hosted their annual Swiss Championships in Lausanne. 30 athletes participated. The Committee thanks all volunteers and all participants, congratulations for the great results!

CrossFit Basel was represented by seven athletes and won 6 gold medals, took 9 swiss and 2 european records!

Monika, Sonja, Aline, Nick and me (Ramon) qualified for the World Championships in November.

Our lifting Team currently holds 78 swiss, 3 european and 5 world records!

Find detailed results and videos on the bottom of the post.


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 is the Swiss Single Lift Championship in Colombier (Saturday April 23rd).

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 will be banned FOR LIFE and all past results will be erased.

Headcoach Ramon Gysin’s recap of the first round of this year’s CrossFit Games Open:

‚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. 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!

Enough philosophy, back to the numbers – basically the main task during these five weeks – leaderboarding. It’s all about the numbers in the end.

CrossFit is getting  more and more competitive and the qualifications toughen up every year. That is a good thing – we don’t want to get lazy or stand still, do we? This year, CrossFit Headquarters designed super regions. Only twenty teams from Europe will go to the Regional Games this year, together with ten teams from Africa!

The individual athletes will drop out of the teams AFTER the Opens. This way, it is very hard to predict which ranking has to be striven for to be qualified in the end. Last year, the leaderboard changed dramatically! Currently, we are sitting on place 26 in Europe out of over 400 registered teams. Together with the team from our friends of CrossFit Turicum we are the best teams in the german speaking area.

Part 15.1a (1-max-rep C&J) brought us rank eleven, which is actually the second best Open result ever. Technically, this means we have some of the best CrossFit weightlifters in Europe at our box. Obviously, the work in our very successful olympic weightlifting club, lead-managed by uncle Tom pays off!

Personally, I must say that I am very happy with my results – I was close to some of the youngsters and CrossFit specialists from my box.

IMG_8687

IMG_8681   IMG_8736

Let’s see what comes up next? Quoting my friend Jami: ‚It’s gonna be CrossFit.“

 Workout 15.2 is out!

For as long as possible:

0:00 – 03:00 – 2 rounds of:

10 Overhead Squats (95/65lbs)

10 chest-to-bar pull-ups

03:00 – 06:00 – 2 rounds of:

12 Overhead Squats (95/65lbs)

12 chest-to-bar pull-ups

06:00 – 09:00 – 2 rounds of:

14 Overhead Squats

14 chest-to-bar pull-ups

Go ALL OUT!! GOOD LUCK!!

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.

Whether you are a beginner, an advanced athlete, junior or master – the CrossFit Games Open are accessible for anyone. There is already a whole slew of athletes from CrossFit Basel who are currently prepping for the competition. Join them and let’s compete side by side!!

Are You Tough Enough 2014

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.

Let’s DO THIS!! 

CrossFit Basel offers Workout Times at the box. These are as follows:

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.
