Today’s Training The conditioning element is continuous for 5 mins (then 7 mins muscle ups) and although it may look like an easy drill, it’s not. Now the instruction was not to kill ourselves however it still can be a tough little routine. Cruising through it at a pedestrian pace is not something I’m happy […]
Today’s Training After a long slow run on Sunday, the short sharp Crossfit routine is enjoyable. 06:30 Monday’s can be quiet and today was no different but good none the less to get up and at it before most other people. I wonder how many people make a gym visit first on their list for […]
Today’s Training New Years Eve… who give a toss! There weren’t too many peeps in the gym today I tells ya! And they’ll be back in the morning January 1st 2014. I won’t mind you I’ll rest tomorrow.

This morning I crept up to 90kg on the squat and felt comfortable, next week the reps are lower so I have an opportunity to get the weight up to 100kg. I was also happy to get my first double under which I was very chuffed with.
The last couple of weeks have been about squats and in particular the last 4 or 5 days have been hard work on the legs. Today was a bit of a break from leg work but still a challenge given the conditioning element of the workout. Let there be no mistake, this is a tough […]
