No WoDs published so turned up for 7pm session. Legs ached from walking and camping over the weekend but pleasantly surprised by the squats.
5,5,5,3,3,3 Back Squats and managed 85, 100, 110, 120, 130 and 140kg.
Am sure I could do more if I practised Pete’s bar tension technique.
The main WoD was a real sweat fest of KB swings and burpees.
Attended a damp 7am session as going camping later.
It was well attended and I managed an 80kg hang power clean, although it was more reverse curl.
Partner WoD with big James was fun. I think I surprised him with my T2B skills!
Had a good 7am session with Rudds yesterday but low on energy.
Maxed out at 130kg Front Squat and was totally crushed by my PB of 140kg.
On a plus side I managed to complete the WoD. Massive shoulder burn.
Loved seeing the photos that Jim Sefton took at the European Inferno.
Not sure sure about competing when you are pregnant though…
I remember reading a long time ago that a good male physique should have arms the same size as calves.
Whilst not exactly having skinny arms, I am pretty sure they don’t come near my calves.
Crossfit is all about functional movements but I think I need to put some time aside on my ‘active rest’ days to do some bicep work.
Too late to start tonight and I am going to the 7am session tomorrow but Thursday will be a good start. As I recall Thor didn’t have skinny arms either…
After a great warm up with Pete, managed an 85kg Strict Press. It nearly never went but locked it out. (Positive mental imagery)
Sweated bigtime on the WoD. Not sure why I find running 200m so hard but managed all 4 rounds of the 24 KB swings and 14 burpees unbroken.
Jane Crotty took the 7am session this morning.
Found the warmup tough but enjoyable.
Rack position for Front Squats was hard. 5×3 managed 60, 80, 90, 100 and 110kg.
Rich and I did well on the partner WoD.
7am session with Pete and lots of familiar faces.
Plenty of shoulder work, prior to the 5×3 strict presses. Managed 52.5, 60, 65, 70 and 75kg.
WoD was tough – Deadlifts ok but I can’t do a two footed sideways jump over the bar. Looking forward to Friday.
