Results Ramon Gysin, BW 101.8kg/-110kg:

Backsquat: 275kg (Swiss Record)
Bench Press: 160kg
Deadlift: 295kg (Swiss Record, personal life time best)
(Unofficial total: 730kg)

HEADCOACH RAMON GYSIN: „Very unexpected, this was my second best competition in Powerlifting/Single Lift EVER. I will not compete international in Single Lift this year due to having further education scheduled at the same dates. Today was more like a test day for the upcoming bigger competitions in two (Strongman) and three (European Championship in Powerlifting) weeks. 275kg Back Squat is my 4th best Squat ever and for the first time I got 295kg in the Deadlift.
Taking away best lifter trophies in Squat and Deadlift was the big goal for today. The race was very tight and I am glad I made it. I had a good friendly fight with Daniel Velarde in the Squat and Dario Dorizzi in the Deadlift, being separated only by merely one point in each movement. They definitely helped me to achieve these big lifts today, thanks for the motivation and challenge!“

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.

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!

Strong(wo)man: Swiss Championship Log Lift & Axle Bar Deadlift 2016

On Saturday April 2nd the Swiss Strongman Federation hosted the swiss championship in Log Lift & Axle Bar Deadlift in Lucerne at the GO-Active fitness exhibition.

CrossFit Basel was represented with four athletes, Vanessa Grosdanoff, Bogdan Krumov, Bruce Phillips and Headcoach Ramon Gysin.

In a last (wo)man standing style contest athletes competed in two different events. Athletes could skip a weight or jump in whenever they wanted. It was a short but intense competition. The ranking in each event was added to one final ranking.

All CFBS athletes did extremely well, here are their results:

Reebok CrossFit Games Open WOD 15.5 and Recap

And it’s over!!

Despite the Opens being over for a couple of weeks already, our team had to wait until past Wednesday to know wether they were qualified for the CrossFit Games Meridian Regionals or not: The team leaderboard had to be re-sorted as the the individuals dropped out of their teams (this sounds more complicated than it is: 30 men and 30 women will go to the Regionals, their scores do not count anymore to the teams score and therefore the team leaderboard looks much different now than right after the Opens).

Long story short: This year only 20 teams from Europe qualify for the newly created Meridian Regionals (new super region, including Africa, read more here). We jumped from Rank 31 to 23 and therefore missed the qualification by 3 spots only.

Here is the re-sorted team leaderboard:

Final Team Leaderboard 2015 CrossFit Games Open

Final Team Leaderboard 2015 CrossFit Games Open

CrossFit Basel’s Headcoach Ramon Gysin recaps the CrossFit Games Opens:

„The 2015 CrossFit Season looks like it is a transition season for us:

Half of our last years very successful Regionals Team dropped out either because of injury or private decisions. But as we are known for a very broad competition class (bringing 20+ different athletes to the European Regionals since 2011) producing high level athletes from the scratch, this was just a normal challenge for us. New athletes stepped into the game and for example on the girls side two new athletes would have gone to Regionals in case we made it.

As CrossFit evolves as a sport, it gets harder to qualify for the most competitive events. Despite being better ranked than last year (31 before the adjustement of the team leaderboard compared to 34 in 2014), we did not qualify due to the change of the qualification mode: Only 20 Teams from Europe qualify, as opposed to 30 the last couple of years.

So we clearly missed our goal to qualify a team for the Regionals. But there is no reason to be mad about this. It is what it is and it gives us an important information: We have to do more, invest more, work harder. Nothing else. Very simple and also easily to manage. What has to be done is very clear.

We will find the most motivated athletes and will start focusing on next year already from next week on. There will be goal setting workshops to identify individual weaknesses, discussion about lifestyle and schedules.

As our foundation is very broad, we now need to work more on the top end. It’s simply not enough anymore to be a bunch of cool guys and girls who love to throw down with each other. As individual competition was already super tough the last couple of years, it seems to be the same with the team competitions now and for the future. We need 6-10 highly competitive athletes to qualify for Regionals 2016, we will find and build them. It is gonna be hard and dedicated work both from athletes and coaches. I am very much looking forward to it, bring the grind, don’t forget the fun of it!

Another change to previous years will be our presence in local european competitions. We are planning the season right now and will most likely show up in one or the other place.

Preparation for 2016 starts right now“

The Training Plan – the conception, our contribution

Back in our post about the year in review 2014, we mentioned Ramon’s contribution and support of a concept called The Training Plan. Now that he spent a weekend in Manchester at the Athlete Games, working as a coach and supporting TTP’s owner, Jami Tikkanen’s work with the athletes, we would like to introduce you to the idea behind the Training Plan.

The Training Plan is a movement based SPP (Specific Physical Preparedness) template designed for CrossFit athletes. The goal is to help them achieve their full potential in Sport and Fitness. Whether the goal is to compete at a local level or to stand on the podium at the CrossFit Games –  The Training Plan’s commitment is to provide a Plan that will get the athletes there. The foundation of the plan is built around movement patterns regardless of the type or duration of the challenge the athlete is facing. Investment in good mechanics won’t only allow an athlete to fully express the physical potential on the Game day but also to have a long and healthy career.

Several components are involved in the concept of The Training Plan:

Movement-based Programming 

Skill development

Energy systems development

Ability to produce and sustain high power outputs both aerobically and anaerobically

Strength development

Various methods of training ranging from strength aerobic to maximal effort to address all the components of strength

Mobility work 

Working on a sufficient range of motion and making mobility part of the daily practise

Weightlifting

Emphasis lays on good form based on solid practise for Snatch and Clean & Jerk

Gymnastics

Building the required strength, developing the skill to carry this strength and then applying it to specific techniques

Restoration

Programming specific restoration to support the training across the season to ensure best performance every day

Nutrition 

Recommendations for a sound foundation of nutrition and hydration which can be adapted to individual requirements

As for Ramon’s role in the Training Plan:

Jami’s concept is followed by quite the impressing list of athletes such as Annie Thorisdottir, Frederik Aegidius, Björgvin Karl Gudmundsson, Simon Mäntylä and Lukas Högberg. All athletes receive programming and guidance from a fine coaching team which includes Jami Tikkanen himself, Chad Vaughn, Ramon Gysin (CF Basel), Darren Ellis (CF New Zealand) and Nate Helming (SFCF, Helming Athletics).

Ramon supports Jami in programming for individual athletes and for TTP in general, particularly in the area of strength. Via phone Ramon and Jami hold weekly meetings to discuss thetrainingplan.co plus the athletes (such as Annie Thorisdottir, Frederik Aegidius) programming.
