Course Content

This seminar is appropriate for coaches, trainers, and athletes of all levels who are familiar with CrossFit and/or training using functional movements. The main takeaway from this seminar is Coach Carl’s “Position-Movement-Purpose” framework, which you can use to analyze and dissect all movements, no matter how complex. Learn to train and perform all movements safely and efficiently to improve and expand on foundational movements, develop your own progressions and skill transfer opportunities, and perform higher-level movements adaptable to any type of training or sport.

 

Specifically, Coach Carl will use the framework to demonstrate the interrelationships between achieving ideal Positions, quality functional Movements, and performing for a Purpose. Coach Carl will also provide a number of concepts, tools, and lenses within the framework to help you analyze movements and break them down into basic progressions appropriate for athletes of any level.

These concepts include:

  • Understanding global vs. local motion
  • Training strength vs. skill
  • Pushing and pulling mechanics
  • Jumping and landing mechanics
  • Bilateral vs. unilateral loading
  • Changing orientation in space
  • Changing in points of contact
  • Changing base of support
  • Identifying mobility and flexibility issues
  • Training by blocking movement

Course Instructors

Depending on the location, size, and schedule of the seminar, Coach Carl may bring along an assistant or intern to help with the seminar administration and proceedings.

 

To effectively learn how to utilize these concepts and tools, all participants will have an opportunity to go hands-on and apply the framework and experience key progressions with the 4 most complex and challenging movements currently found in CrossFit training and workouts:

 

  • Handstand Push Up
  • Pistol
  • Muscle Up
  • Burpee

 

As a testament to Coach Carl’s movement framework, the hands-on component of this seminar is appropriate for participants of all ages, skill levels, and experience.

 

Newer athletes will practice Carl’s movement progressions starting with the most basic drills.

 

Experienced athletes will use Carl’s progressions to identify weaknesses in their performance and learn how to maximize their efficiency.

 

Coaches and trainers will learn how to coach, spot, and cue their athletes for a broad variety of movements and scenarios.

Preparation

No prior experience with gymnastics or body-weight training is required. However, the more exposure you have had to the gymnastics movements found in CrossFit, the more constructive this seminar will be for you. You should have some knowledge of these movements to help inform your questions for Coach Carl and help you grasp the concepts more quickly.

 

We recommend that all participants have taken an on-ramp or foundations course at their local CrossFit gym and spent some time viewing and trying the relevant progressions and workouts on GymnasticsWOD.com as preparation for the seminar.
