Monday adventure

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.

Wednesday am

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…

Operation Big Guns

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…

Up early

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.
