John Singleton is both a CrossFit coach and an osteopath. He started with CrossFit working out with a friend in a park.
He says there is not a real secret to become high-level athlete. Important is to create environment where everybody is getting better. John says, that a group of people is more beneficial than having one person to train with.
“It is all about small steps that have to be taken.”
He is a founder of The Progrm.
In an essence, The Progrm is a training program designed for CrossFit athletes. The idea behind The Progrm has always been to support athletes in becoming the best athletes they possibly can. The Progrm has been used by and developed multiple CrossFit Games competitors, including Sara Sigmundsdottir. It started in very small extension, then The Progrm became public and kept growing.
Singleton believes that to get to the Games an athlete has to be strong with good genetic potential and be able to pick up skills quickly. A good team is the key as well.
Over 3 years since the first Teen Camp. It is great to see some of the original athletes now throwing down in the Elite categories and the next generation coming through. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ 7 days of working to become better athletes ?. Special thanks to @crossfitriders for letting us use the gym and @jacdah for "letting" the teens win sometimes… ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Future: @oliviaskogstrand @katlaketils @manu_dobon @hinleyc124 @rakelragn @masongarrity2 – #TheProgrm @theprogrm – If your interested in attending a Teen Camp just send a message or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Another good warm-up/accessory piece for improving/working the overhead postion. "Single arm sit-up" this can be done with KB's, DB's or a Barbell. By utilising 1 arm at a time it can help identify any possible imbalances you may have it also challenges your ability to control rotation more. Just try building up to 10 each arm, a 15-20kg DB should be possible. . @TheProgrm #TheProgrm #Accessory
Excited to be traveling back to Austria and Iceland this June for @theprogrm workshops and camps. “Stick to the basics and when you feel you’ve mastered them, it’s time to start all over again, begin anew, again with the basics, this time paying closer attention.” – @cfceo . @TheProgrm #TheProgrm ? @stefanoberwalder
