Strength at Length 2 with Scott Hagnas
Strength at Length is intense range of motion training for strong athletes.
Gain strength at your end ranges to finally improve your mobility in a way that lasts and transfers to your life & sport. Feel, perform, and recover better every day!
Strength at Length is returning to CrossFit Fort Vancouver starting June 1st. This is a 6 week training course that will cover mostly all-new material and methods from the first class earlier in the year. The class is designed for all levels, as the exercises scale just as they do in CrossFit. You don’t need to be already flexible to start! But, if you are flexible already, there will be advanced variations so you can take it to a new level.
Strength at Length will take place on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 PM from June 1st - July 6th. Cost is $200.
There will be one coached class by Scott Hagnas each week and 2 workouts that you’ll do on your own during the week. You will be able to do this training along with your normal workouts.
If you have persistent mobility issues that don’t seem to improve much, no matter what you’ve tried, this is the class for you!
Here’s what I’ll be covering in Strength at Length 2:
Scott Hagnas has been coaching for 20 years, and was the founder of CrossFit Portland - one of the first 25 CrossFit gyms in the world, back in 2005. He operated that gym for nearly 16 years, and now coaches remotely and out of his home studio. He’s studied, practiced, and coached flexibility as a specialty, and has been the mobility & strength coach for many athletes, including CrossFit games athletes, Olympic athletes, X-Games competitors, and many professional dancers, including 11 years as coach for the Oregon Ballet Theatre.
- We will start with an assessment session to determine starting points and to measure progress by the end of the course.
- Scott will go over his standards in range & strength for the different exercises so you have clear targets to shoot for.
- We’ll cover the form and scaling of the exercises in the classes, then roll up our sleeves and get down to work.
- While we’ll train as a group, it’ll be small enough that Scott can individualize some parts so you can work on your weaker areas more.
- Some new methods from the first course that we’ll be using: Lateral & Rotational Strength exercises to unlock mobility, Loaded Eccentrics, more Contract/Relax methods, and building powerful joint stability with Impulse Training.
- For coaches and those interested in continuing more of this style work after the class is done, Scott will talk about how to integrate range of strength type work into your program.
- Be forewarned - this style of training is not easy, but it works. We won’t be foam rolling, using a bunch of bands, or doing a lot of relaxed stretches.
- If you like CrossFit, you’ll probably enjoy these workouts also!
