For the rugby nauses out there.... I’ve made a TeamSolent league for the six nations. Come and get involved!

I've just left the class at 6pm. Sorry it's late notice!
Wearing my shirt here in Madison. Looking forward to dropping in again when I am back visiting in October. Always a great experience!
Happy to announce the first of the new year will be at Crossfit Solent in Southampton on 20th January 2018

The workshop run by Lee Wade Turner of Recession Proof Body (London) is split into two parts, in the morning session, basic Bodyweight exercises, (press ups, dips, pull ups and muscle ups) are the focus, working on correct technique, ways to improve overall strength and ways to build your reps.
More intensive variations of each exercise will be demonstrated and broken down where participants will explore different ways of training with them.
Challenging solo/group workouts will wrap up each instructional segment working with parallettes, parallel bars, Rings and high bar.
After a lunch break the Bodyweight movements are taken up a few notches with advanced Gymnastic/Bodyweight holds and exercises such as Front Lever, Back Lever, One arm pull ups and Human Flag are broken down with demonstrations through all the progressions needed to be worked on to actually achieving the full hold.
More modern and updated 'Street Workout' variations
The final part of the workshop will incorporate some of the new skills acquired in a fun and challenging core session where the participants will run through some drills and skills on the parallel and high bar.
Afterwards the coach will be able to answer any questions or concerns that you have regarding the days session.

Statistically, most of us will have some difficulty with our own body image at some point in our lives.

Nowadays everyone is subjected to stereotyped sizes, shapes, skin tones, body fat percentages or weight and social media often perpetuates this to a troubling extent with filters and photoshop.

But today we wanted to recognise that CrossFit Solent is a community space for athletes of all sizes, shapes, complexions, weights, and athletic abilities.

In your next WOD look around, we’re lucky enough to be part of an amazing and supportive community who are here to cheer for everyone no matter who they are no one is judged by their appearance or skills. We celebrate the spirit of our community with the mantra and work with all of our members to be an inclusive and supportive space.

And most of all remember this, what you look like doesn’t dictate who you are it’s who you are on the inside, your value is demonstrated by your experiences, your values, your emotions, your ethics, and strength of character much more than an outward image, physical shape, or bodyweight.

Stay strong , we believe in every one of you.

Today we want you to look back to when you FIRST started CrossFit (for some of you this may have been quite a while back).

What was your biggest hurdle then? Thrusters? Pull Ups? Maybe you struggled to link Burpees together?

Now, look where you are today...

Chances are, you've come a LOT further than you might think, So next time you're struggling, or ready to throw in the towel, have a look back at the athlete you were then and think about how inspired they would have been knowing where you are now.

Keep going, you've got this.

What's up Crew!

Who's ready to start a new strength cycle?

Starting tomorrow with hang snatches and over the coming weeks, we will challenge you to push yourself to be your best and start feeling stronger than ever!

So let's show the real meaning of !

The weather is turning and the nights are getting longer so if you're bedding in and looking for some inspiration we've got another book recomendation for you!

This time around we're talking 'Running Life' by Dame Kelly Holmes.

This book covers Kelly's background, gives Nutrition and Recipes, a fascinating piece on Mindset and an Exercise plan, so its got something for everyone all packaged up by one of Britain's greatest Olympians!

We really liked this one because it offers such a different perspective on training and how a positive mindset can change your whole life.

Today is World Menopause day and before you scroll past thinking this does not apply to you - think again! Half of you reading this WILL at some point be affected by the menopause. As for the rest of you (i.e. the guys), someone significant in your life will be affected by this, either now or at some point in the future.

Whilst every woman's experience can differ, the hormonal changes during this time can have a detrimental impact on her ability to exercise. Significant reductions in oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone can result in hot flashes, feeling exhausted, sleep deprived, depressed, and forgetful, to mention just a few symptoms.

These symptoms can make CrossFit (or other exercise) very challenging! Heat regulation can be challenging, and the body is likely to hold onto more fat (particularly around the midline) leading to weight gain that can be incredibly difficult to shift.

The lack of testosterone can mean trying to build muscle and strength is like fighting an uphill losing battle. A bit like trying to accumulate calories on an Echo bike lol.

An increase in the stress hormone cortisol may mean that regularly doing very intense WODs is not always a good idea as it adds to the stress on the body.

The good news is that by continuing to lift heavy and doing workouts at the right intensity, whilst giving your body more time to recover, can actually help many symptoms of the menopause. Lifting weights will help to offset the decrease in bone density and muscle mass.

Gym manager Simone -
“In the beginning I found it incredibly hard to adapt to the changes my body was going through, and I have had to physically and mentally shift my approach to my training.“

She is more than happy to talk about her experiences with any member who would like to chat about these issues.

Whilst Monday was day it's important to remember that the conversations around mental health can be extraordinarily hard to have.

However, if you are looking to open up to your friends and family we have borrowed some advice from Mind to air you in helping you start the a conversation with your friends, family and loved ones.

• Find a method of communication that feels right for you. This might be a face-to-face, on the phone or write down how you feel in a letter.

• Find a suitable time and place. There may not be a 'good' time, but it can help if you're somewhere quiet and comfortable, and are unlikely to be disturbed for a while

• Practice what you want to say. You could do this in your head or make some notes. Phrases such as "I've not been feeling like myself" or "I'm finding it hard to cope" might provide a starting point

• Offer them relevant information and examples. If you've found a useful description, or seen someone on television or in a film saying something that feels right to you

• Be honest and open. It can sometimes feel uncomfortable sharing something so personal, but explaining how your feelings are affecting your life may help others to understand

• Suggest things they could do to help. This might just be listening and offering emotional support or there may be practical help you need (see examples in our page on helping someone else seek help)

• Don't expect too much from one conversation. Understanding mental health problems can take time, and some people may be shocked or react badly at first. It's important to give them some time to process what you've told them

If you are struggling, please don't feel alone and if you'd like some support, speak with one of the coaches who will be able to provide you with some information about Solent MIND and the work they do to help those in need

Macros, a word most of us are familiar with, but what are they?

Macros or Macronutrients are the trifecta of nutrient types used to maintain normal healthy bodily functions. Some of you may be committed to a solid eating plan, but it’s often a lack of dietary knowledge that causes a downfall in people’s performance.

Simplifying our nutritional intake it makes it easier to monitor our daily consumption of food to recognise what we are potentially consuming too much of, and how to adjust our intake to be more balanced.

There is a huge variation in opinions of what percentage of each macro should be however an average of this figure is:

• 45 to 65% Carbohydrates
• 10 to 30% Protein
• 25 to 35% Fat

Now, we do want to establish that these aren’t hard and firm rules for every single person, however, these numbers do form a solid baseline on what you should aim to eat each day for athletic performance.

Many people, especially CrossFit athletes find that by tracking their macros and eating more considered meals, they can fuel themselves more effectively across the day whilst maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
