Awesome effort from every one of our athletes this evening! First, we spent a lot of time refining our split jerk technique. With a focus on maximising power output by driving through the hips, ensuring the weight stays over midline and feet positioning in the catch. There were substantial improvements made by all athletes! In particular though, Katie Doff, Stewart and Bryn deserve a mention for efficiently generating force with full hip extension before getting under the bar and Richard Coates, Fern and Aimee worked incredibly hard on their split length and feet positioning which really helped them stabilise their landing position, when getting under the bar at speed.
Next we did a little more work on our engines, with some 800m intervals. I know many of you were dreading this! Especially those with a real phobia of running! I won’t mention any names but I’m soooo proud of you all! for not just comfortably managing to finish all three runs, but actually hitting them hard, giving your all and finishing in amazing time! Matthew and Richard Coates also need a mention here for some unbelievable fast and consistent times! These guys saw hardly any drop off over the 3 runs! Which is amazing when you realise how fast they ran!!
Finally there was a little time to get some extra conditioning in, with a short WOD. Kris Welsh and Tracy Davies took fastest times for the gentlemen and ladies respectively in this section of the class. Two competitors that have unrelenting levels of muscular endurance! Great evening everyone!!!
We also welcomed Alex, fresh out of on ramp last night to his first class today! And what a class to hit!! He did not look out of place and worked extremely hard! I hope we give the rest of our August on Rampers the same welcome when they hit classes next week! Great work Alex!!
