It was squats (5-5-5+) again on Tuesday morning and deadlifts (5-5-5+) and weighted chins (5-5-5+) today.
So I do enjoy my mobility drills (been a bit of a Starrett fan for quite some time as many of us are) and I’m always banging on about rest too. If you can rush back into your second, third or whatever set after a minute then it probably isn’t a proper working set. For strength your rest should be somewhere in the region of 3 to 5 minutes. So why not combine both these things… and that’s what I did today.
Cue my new Lacrosse balls – or ze balls of pain. Everyone had a go with them in between sets to hit knots and adhesions in those tight little muscles of ours. They look pretty unassuming don’t they? But a world of pain awaits you.
Sally also made it to the Thurs session – make sure to check out her blog as she continues to comment on training through her pregnancy. Also make sure to check out the CrossFit London Flickr account, I’m trying to regularly post all the photos from my sessions there. Go TEAM!
