The last ever Saturday WOD in the old Blackboard Gym. A small part of Crossfit London UK’s rich history. Lots and lots of fun memories. Made some great new friends and learnt a ton of stuff about everything, not just Crossfit. Thinking back to my nervous excitement of taking my first class here seems ages ago and how time has flown by. But as always looking forward to what the future brings in the new gym.
Today we worked the back squats in the strength session. 2×5 then 1×5+. We looked to maintain good depth and fought against the temptation to go shallow as we got tired.
Then on to the WOD
Thrusters and box jumps. Don’t you just love thrusters. 10, 9, 8, 7 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 reps of 40kg/30kg thrusters coupled with 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 of box jumps. So each set always added up to 11. The world record went to super mum to be Sally with just a tad over 7 minutes, err wow! And she brought chocolate brownies in! So forget paleo and protein shakes, eat brownies and get pregnant. Lads just eat brownies. Anyone getting under 10 minutes was amazing and anyone in the 15 minute mark was excellent.
The two Kates, big kudos for fighting hard to finish, impressive.
