Viking Training System
The Viking Training System has evolved from our experience as a CrossFit affiliate from 2011 to 2018 to provide a down to earth training environment where everyone progresses but away from the shiny, fitness competition image . We have improved and refined since 2011 and place a stronger emphasis on camaraderie and individualised progression.
We believe in developing all round fitness built upon a foundation of Strength, Power and Endurance.
No area of fitness is neglected and crucially we believe in training ALL planes of movement and moving at different tempos.
We use a variety of objects. Barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, sandbags, bodyweight etc to develop strength. Rowers, ropes, sledgehammers, running .. with and without loads)... Body weight , Macebells to develop our conditioning.
All sessions are in a supportive, group environment and are closely coached. Everything is gradeable to suit all fitness levels.
We base every session around building strength and power primarily with a fully developed strength programme divided into Hip hinging movements, Pushing and pulling, Squatting movements and standing presses.
All conditioning workouts are based off the strength element.
What we don’t do –
Deadlifts in conditioning workouts!
Complex, technical moves under fatigue!
Build the aerobic capacity and brute strength of a Viking Warrior!
