WHAT IS DEKA COMP

You will see that our programming revolves around the three CrossFit Games competition series, the Open, Regional and the Games. Most people will have their important competition with the Open and the Regionals. We aim to vary programming as much as possible in order to widen the margins of experience but you will definitely notice trends in training based on those competitions.

This programming also aims to excel in CrossFit competitions, therefore the core of our program is the CrossFit training method. Around this method, we add accessories and some more specific work but they will stay accessory.

FOR MASTERS 45+

If you are 45+ Master Athlete, this is for you! Our Masters programming revolves around the Masters CrossFit Games competition series; the Open, the Online Qualifier and the Games. For our Deka Comp Master’s athletes, we adjust volume, weight and gymnastic skills and add some accessory work as well as some mobility exercises.

We are among those who believe that over time, we can continue to improve our fitness, regardless of age. However, older athletes may find that it takes longer to recover and this may increase the risk of injury.

This is why we need to adapt training according to our age. To optimize results and performance, it’s important to adjust training volume, intensity and choice of exercises. Deka Comp Masters offers clients aged 45 and over the opportunity to follow our programming safely and effectively…while staying motivated!

One day programming example

Mercredi/
Wednesday
WOD Scaling/Stimulus/coaching cues
Weightlifting A. Jerk dip drives
3 jerk dip squats + 1 split jerk @ moderate to light weight
Athlete: The Jerk dip drives need thestay soft at the knees. Goal is keeping torso angle constant for all 4 reps (including jerk).
Lower Body, dynamic B. 6 x 3 heavy deads with a band @ moderate Athlete: looking for speedy reps and a tight midline. BE AWARE of over extension. Keep ribs in and think of hinging at the hip. To set up, step on band that is placed over the bar, so only one band.
Barbel Cycling C. 3 x 10 hang power clean @ medium heavy
rest 30 seconds between sets
Athlete: Barbell cycling so this needs to suck a bit (ok, a lot) but be successful
Metcon D. 3 rounds
30 calorie row
30 wallballs
30 kbs 24/16
Athlete: Unbroken.
Coach: This is the only element in the class so use time to teach the row, the wall ball and the kbs. In the row, you can talk about the s/m variable to help them understand how to better use their drive in the row. In the wallball you can focus on the squat with the correct line of action (hip going back and down) and in the KBS, focus on driving knees back as you push into the ground just like in the deadlift (slower) and push press (faster)
Core E. 5 rounds
25 ghd situps
25 ghd hip extensions
