Training Methods

by Carl Miller

 

 

What is so different from swimmers training four hours a day and going to school or work and a lifter doing the same? Not everyone would want to do this or could, but some can and will. I want to say that although we in the West are on the right track in our training methods, there are some things that should be stressed even more, and there are some things which should be thought of in a different ...

FUCK 2ND PLACE!

Posted by Sean Hutchinson on June 15, 2016 at 9:50 AM Comments comments (0)

FUCK 2nd Place: In my time as a competitive athlete in the sport of Weightlifting I have gone from being the underdog nobody chasing down the top guys to being one of the best athletes in the USA. No matter what situation I find myself in I always try to find new ways to motivate myself. Motivation is one of the key drivers to being a successful athlete in any sport you take on.


When I first got into Weightlifting I was living back home in Palatka, FL. I used to train out...

First Steps to become a great (well, maybe better) Weightlifter/CrossFitter:

1.Mobility/Flexibility:


I’m not saying that you have to look like K-star in the bottom of your OHS before you start training but it definitely goes a long way and makes progressing much easier when you can perform the movements in Weightlifting and CrossFit safely. Being able to comfortably hit these positions will make everything you do easier and safer in the long run. The biggest issue I see with new athletes in this sport is rushing to add weight bef...

Be ready for your next Weightlifting Competition: A guide for Coaches and Athletes

 1. BEFORE YOU GO...


A. GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER!

Pack all your gear in 1 bag that you will be using on competition day in 1 bag. If you don’t have one by now get a gym bag. Keep your shoes, belt, singlet, tape, knee sleeves, belt, etc. in this bag. This is especially important for those traveling by plane with more than 1 connection. I can’t count how many times over the last 13 years of competing I’ve had my bags get lost d...

Why are we squatting again this week?!

Posted by Sean Hutchinson on January 29, 2015 at 10:50 AM Comments comments (0)

So, I’ve had a few people ask me over the last few months about the theory behind the chaos that is the programming at CrossFit Towson. I figured instead of answering with a short brief response at the beginning of class I’d go ahead and put some thoughts into a blog and share it with you all.


I’ll be the first to admit, I am no master programmer when it comes to CrossFit. I am still in the learning process to this very new sport/training methodology if y...

"DON'T BE A MENTAL MIDGET!"


 “135KG on the Bar for Sean Hutchinson’s first attempt.”… “OMG, Can I make this?? I mean I’ve done it before in training and I’ve never missed it. But, I just cut weight. My legs feel week. Maybe I should have dropped my opener just to be safe. Shit…30 seconds left. OMG I made the clean, breath, breath, breath!!! FUCK, I jus...

11 Things Every CrossFit/Weightlifting Athlete Should have in their gym bag!


Well, first thing’s first…you need a gym bag.


Here is my top choice and recommendation: The KING KONG Bag by King Kong Apparel. They are now on their 3rd generation of this bag and it is top notch. I still have the original bag they came out with a few years ago and it is holding up just great. It features 2 side compartments, perfect for storing your weightlifting s...

2014: Rebuilding - The American Open

Posted by Sean Hutchinson on December 15, 2014 at 1:50 PM Comments comments (0)

So, I just got back from the 2014 American Open and have had some time to let everything sink in. I can honestly say I have met all of my post surgery goals for 2014 so far even though there were times I felt like giving up. My first official competition back was a local comp up in York, PA. I can’t even think of the name of it but it was a great experience to say the least. I was coached by one of my former rivals, and great friend, Aaron Adams. You guys might remember him being a stu...

So, I’ve come to the conclusion that there seems to be a lack of knowledge or awareness of proper gym etiquette wherever I go these days, and it’s only getting worse as the average globo gym member makes the switch to the world of CrossFit. Below I will break down some ways you can achieve better gym etiquette, specifically in the CrossFit Box.
