Get ready for the Performance Series – Competition Cycle!

 

CFSA Fam!

Are you looking to work on your team, partner or individual competition skills? Do you get a pump from pushing or being pushed by others during a workout? Whichever it is, worry not because we’ve got you. The Performance Series is getting ready to kick off its next 12-week cycle.

The Competition Cycle of the Performance Series will take place between August 14th and November 13th. Its focus will be on preparing athletes in a competition environment. This will include skill prep, strength and supplemental lifting and conditioning, individual, team and/or partner workouts.

Unlike the Open and Skills cycle, the Competition cycle does not have a developmental component. There are prerequisites for registering. To qualify for the Competition Cycle, each athlete must be able to do the following:

  • Deadlift 1.5x their bodyweight

  • Squat 1.25x their bodyweight

  • Clean (power or full) 75% their bodyweight

  • Be able to complete at least 5 unbroken reps of at least one of the following skills OR 3 unbroken reps of two or more of the following:

    • Pull-up

    • T2B

    • HSPU

As part of the series, you will be tested on three Benchmark workouts that will be re-tested at the end of the series to measure of improvement.  These benchmarks are:

  • Grace

  • Cindy XXX

  • Karabel

The Cycle registrations starts August 5th and will go until August 13th or all slots are filled.  Participants in the Competition Cycle will meet on Tuesdays at 7:30 pm and Saturdays at 11:30 AM for 90 minute sessions. To ensure we can provide the detailed feedback necessary to help each athlete grow, space in the Cycle will be limited to 16 athletes for this 12 week period and available to all CFSA members. If you are ready to kick off your skill development journey, sign up here. Don’t wait!
