This was an interesting night, we were doing workouts that the full CrossFit class were doing for the affiliates cup.  I looked at the board and then I stared in disbelief, there were about 5 or 6 workouts on the board. There had been no WOD posted to...

We did a 400m run as a warm up and then did some interesting warm up tabata exercises. After doing some dynamic shoulders the first one was a dead hang alternated with kettle bell overhead walking. Tabata is 20 seconds work and 10 seconds rest for 8...

CrossFit Lite | Tuesday 23rd October 2018

The WOD started with a plate carry for a warm up, which I found pretty hard to keep the 10kg plate overhead in the air, didn't come in too far behind so that was a bonus. We spent some time warming up the shoulders and doing some dead hangs.  I still can't take my...
