18th September – The 5’s

Getting to the end of the 5’s and the weights are getting tougher!

I can’t wait to see where this takes me, over half way through now.

Today saw me Back squatting and Bench pressing.

Working weight was 85% and the target was at least 5 reps plus some.

In between each move I inserted pull ups and double under practise, using time effectively.

Phillip has given me a few pointers with my double unders, which I am finding frustrating!

I am trying to make the double under move efficient by bouncing through my ankle and not my knees and hips. This is defiantly less taxing but as a primary school break time skipper use to bouncing through my knees and hips its hard to switch them off.

Aware that I need to add more met cons to my routine I tried out my Monday night Crossfit London WOD.

AMRAP 3 Minutes

10 Box jumps

15 Ball Slams

1 minute active rest of max pull ups (as I need to work on Push ups I did them instead)

This was a lot harder then it appeared. Ball slams and Box jumps are exhausting at the best of times but together they made a killer combo.

I did 5 rounds.
