Crossfit Abbotsford and the Abbotsford Whalers are offering Dryland training to swimmers to help prepare them for the summer season of competition.
What: The purpose of these sessions is to improve mobility to improve stroke technique, increase strength to improve power of stroke, starts and turns, and raise lactic acid threshold to improve on sprints. Plus, create a warm-up routine that athletes can use while in the marshalling area. All this while having fun and learning new skills. Athletes will never lifting weights heavier than their school backpack until they have the ability to show proper technique for multiple reps. Some of the movements they will learn will be a proper squat, deadlift, pull-up, push-up, and box-jump. Athletes will use bands, olympic bars, kettlebells, medicine balls and rowing machines.
When: Starting in Late February, these sessions will happen on Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. at Crossfit Abbotsford in Downtown Abbotsford.
Who: Athletes in Div 2 or older looking to be competitive in this up and coming season. Competitive could mean a goal of going to provincials or it could mean reaching multiple Personal Best (PB) times.
How Much: 12 weeks x 55 minute session = $90. Crossfit Kids and Teen sessions typically cost closer to $10 per session.
