14 April 2019 - An Insight into CrossFit 1864's "Barbelles Lifting Class" with Coach Alice

Over the past few months, we have been amazed by the progress the ladies of CrossFit 1864 are making. From first pull-ups and toes to bar, to handstand walking and deadlift PBs, these girls are killin’ it!

To find out the secret behind their success, we asked Coach Alice to give us an insight into her programming and coaching of the Barbelles Lifting Class, CrossFit 1864’s women’s only session, held every Sunday at 11 am.

Tell us more, Coach Alice…

As a coach, my goal is to empower the people that I work with.

When I was asked to programme for CrossFit 1864’s Barbelles Lifting Class, I was honoured to say yes! I knew that playing such an active role in helping the women of CrossFit 1864 realise their full potential would be incredibly rewarding and I couldn’t wait to get started.

Looking back a couple of years ago, I couldn’t do a single gymnastics movement. Everything seemed so far away and I didn’t know where to start. I struggled with pull ups, consistently falling back to ring rows (my safety net), and laughed out loud when someone asked me to do toes to bar. Flash forward to today, and it makes perfect sense that my passion would lie in an area where I was once weak. I strongly believe that every woman should be able to perform the basic CrossFit gymnastic movements: pull ups, push ups and handstands, to name a few.

With the Barbelles programming, my aim is to share the knowledge I acquired from my training and from my coach, along with the insight I have gained over the years of my experience as a Personal Trainer.

In every Barbelles Lifting Class, there is a little bit of me.

I strive to help our members, because in every class I coach, I see myself in them. I have structured this class to not only empower participants to want more from their training sessions, but to also help them to be a more well-rounded athlete and assist with any weaknesses they may have.

The Barbelles Lifting Class isn’t just for beginners. It is for every female athlete who would like to work on their personal weaknesses. Every movement can be progressed and regressed and, during the sessions, I adjust rep schemes to cater to each individual’s needs. In addition, I also set homework that members can complete on their own. These sessions will complement your usual Classic CrossFit classes and get you well on your way to being the fittest and strongest version of yourself.

The Current Focus of the Barbelles Programming

At the moment, our Barbelles class is working on building muscle and increasing strength. Our current programming focus is back, chest and shoulders along with hamstrings and glute work. These are then broken down further into compound lifts that work across multiple joints and muscle groups, such as squats, deadlifts, bench press, bent over rows, pull ups, etc. We also supplement these movements with isolation exercises, such as lateral raises, dumbbell rows, hamstring curls, and glute bridges, which work to fix muscular imbalances and prevent injury.

Also in our sessions, we are honing in on the importance of strong ‘lats’, otherwise known as Latissimus Dorsi. The lats are the largest muscle in the upper body and have five connection points. They adduct, rotate, and extend. They stabilise our bodies during heavy compound lifts, are vital in shoulder and back health and play a huge part in nearly everything we do in the gym.

More specifically…

  • Strong lats help to minimise the strain on our shoulders during pull ups and chin ups, stabilise your spine during heavy squats, transfers force during the bench press and keeps you from rounding your back in deadlifts.

  • Lat strength helps with toes to bar! Our lats come into play during the back-swing of our kip. By actively pushing down on the bar, we are able to get behind the bar, shortening the distance in which our toes need to travel to touch the bar.

  • Strong lats also lead to higher Olympic Weightlifting numbers (think Clean and Snatch) as they are active during the entire movement.

It’s not just about lifting!

The women who attend Barbelles Lifting Class also gain a more in depth understanding of their bodies, how different muscle groups work, and how we can utilise these muscle groups to get the most benefit from the exercises we do, both in the Barbelles sessions and also in the regular CrossFit classes.

So, what are you waiting for? I’ll see you on Sunday at 11 am!
