5th September – Team Trial with Karen

I had a fight with Karen last night and beat her arse down!

This was my Facebook status last night.

Anyone not in the know would be thinking “maybe I should de-friend Sally, she seems to have anger issues”

To all my Crossfit buddies they will know that Karen is 150 wall balls for time, 6kg medicine ball and hitting a 9ft target.

I nearly vomited but I proudly made it in sub 6 minutes (5.51)

I literally dropped to all fours and tried to breathe, my lungs felt like they were on fire and I loved it!

This was the first of the Team Trial sessions I am currently running at Crossfit London Wednesday @ 8.30pm.

You don’t need to want to be in the final team to take part but you do need to have a good skill set and fitness level as the classes are tough.

I had a small group yesterday -Ben, Chris and Kirsty.

What did we do………

5 minute double under practise followed by hip mobility to complement the wall balls.

Straight into clean and jerk drills and working up to a 1rm

Nice PB Ben!

Snatches were harder then expected so guess what I was drilling like mad today in training!

Finally all four of us smashed Karen to bits.

Male standard – 9kg ball, 10ft target

Female standard – 6 kg, 9ft target

Chris 8.02

Kirsty 8.57

Ben 12.31

Nice work people, see you next time.
