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.

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.
