I didn’t post yesterday as things were a bit manic. So here’s what happened
We took the Hartpury College Girls Rugby Academy for a session at Reebok CrossFit Glevum. THEY LOVED IT! They ran through a 2 round chipper of:
20 burpee box jump overs
20 pull ups
20 wall ball shots
20 jump squats
They just put their heads down and did the work in teams of 5. PROUD
I visited Twickenham today for a conference based around strength training for adolescent athletes. The 2nd half of the day was far better than the morning with Matt Lovell talking through diet and hydration, then Neil Taylor talking through lifting and then some wrestling with LJ, a very strong female rugby player and MMA fighter from Bristol. Fun afternoon.
My training from yesterday and today looked like this:
Wednesday 7th November
Snatch/Hang Snatch – 60-70-80-90-95-97.5-100kg
Shankle Complex – 100-110-115-120-125-130kg (5kg PB)
Thursday 8th November
5×2 Hang Power Snatch – 70-80-90-95-100
I didn’t really feel up to much after 5 hours of driving and knowing I have to max out tomorrow, so I kept the volume really low…REALLY LOW! Stoked with a double at 100 too!
