After months of preparation and excitement, The Wolverson Lancashire Championships 2016 are just 3 weeks away!
Taking place Saturday 16th – Sunday 17th July, this promises to be a weekend of all out athletic excellence! Over 2 days and 8 Workouts across 2 venues, athletes will face off in challenges of Weight Lifting, Gymnastics and Aerobic Conditioning, pushing them to their physical and mental limits of fatigue, until an overall Champion is crowned!
A couple of weeks ago the first batch of Workouts were announced
- and now, the second round of Workouts are here!
Workout 1 - 'Heavy Handles'
With a 11 minute timecap, Workout 1 tarts with a 1km Run, then breaks into a Maximum Farmers Carry for the remaining time.
Workout 2 - 'Hard Labour'
Using 30kg - 70kgh Heavy Slam Balls, Workout 2 will be a floor-to-shoulder lift and flip, followed by a 2 length Prowler Push.
Workout 3 - 'Track Triplet'
Workout 3 will start with 20 'Toe to Bar' movements, followed by 10 20kg - 40kg Alternate Dumbbell Snatches, and finished off with a 400m Run, completing 3 full rounds in the 12 minute timecap!
Workout 4 - 'Fat Lunges'
Just what it sounds like, this Maximum Distance Lunge will use an 'unorthodox' fat bar.
We’re incredibly proud to be working with our good friends at CrossFit DeltaFox to be a part of this amazing event, and will be bringing you all the latest details as they emerge. Make sure to keep up with all the action over at the official Wolverson Lancashire Championships facebook page and the Official Website!
'So here we are returning for our 3rd year, linking up with Wolverson Fitness. This year we have really turned it up a notch, and will welcome the likes of Mike Catris, Stuart Trees, Barry Mairs, PD Savage, Beth Hoggarth, Fran Calvert, and Fran Palama to the mix, in a spectacle not to be missed!
In a plan that has been put together for nearly 12 months, both Jason McCarthy and Alex Morton of Wolverson have helped us build a Throwdown unlike any other. In this 2 day event, you'll start day 1 with a Strongman theme by gripping Farmers Carry Handles, flipping D-Balls, Snatching Dumbbells and Lunging with Axle Bars. Then if you make it you'll be back to Conventional Functional Fitness on Day 2.
We've stressed that no matter what category you are, you'll be completing the same workouts, just slightly altered for capabilities. This guarantees a tight yet exciting event!
All that's left to say is enjoy practicing the workouts, and no matter what, let's see if you're all up to the test of being crowned the Champion come the 17th July...
Good Luck from all at The Wolverson Lancashire Championships!'
Mike Henry, Head Coach, CrossFit DeltaFox
