On ramp beginner class handouts?

I am starting a beginner class next week. Decided on a 4 week, 3 x/wk class to teach the 9 movments and introduce scaling, terminology, equipment, etc... Does anyone have any written support materials for this type of thing that they have used and wouldn't mind sharing?

Bill

Re: On ramp beginner class handouts?

Ok, do you know how sometimes after you do something a long time you kind of forget what you did in the beginning? So, for anyone just starting out here is what I did. I made up a handout list of the equipment I have in place; plyo boxes, kettlebells, sandbags, pvc pipe, pull up bar, gymnastic rings, rubber bands, agility ladder... I started by introducing the students to the equipment; "these are called Kettlebells - we will be using these for...." while demonstrating. Next "these are called plyo boxes - we will be using these for jumping, stepping, doing dips on, scaling push-ups, for getting to the pull up bar..." etc... Put them through some warm up movements. Then reviewed cues and the points we were going to cover on the squat; weight on heels, stance, butt back, etc... This was class one. For class two; while they were doing some warm up movements, I went to the white board put up WOD and explained what it meant, wrote out "constantly varied functional movements at high intensity" and used that to explain safety, technique, etc...Also on the first day handout I included this from Melissa Urban: “CrossFit is a fitness program designed around the things you do in the real world. Every day you bend down and pick things up, put things over your head, squat down, stand up, run after your kids or jump over a puddle. CrossFit prepares you for all that and more by performing those exact movements in our workouts. We borrow exercises from things like weightlifting, gymnastics, and track and field, and we mix them up a lot, so your body is always adapting, getting stronger, faster and better conditioned. And the key to the whole program is that you work really, really hard… so you get fit really, really fast.” After our first day squat work, I had them do a short 8-6-4 triplet. They were done pretty quick but got a little of taste of things to come.

Re: On ramp beginner class handouts?

I've uploaded our docs (w/fs) to a page for anybody who wants to use them. As is or modify at will, have at it.

I hope this is what folks are asking about here. Bill, you're looking at the Elements journals and such. They're general use docs, a couple logs, a waiver, that kind of stuff. Pass it on if you find them useful.

Thanks to everyone who's let me borrow and modify their stuff to get these together. Big help.
