But can anyone pull it out of the bag this week and jump ahead of pace setters team 4!!?? 

Participation points are going to be vital this week for final placings!! 
Our Spirit points for last week were awarded to… 
Abi for taking the lead and organising an amazing buffet!! Louise batty for completing the workout in another affiliate while away with work.. Using road signs and sand filled wall balls to get it done! 

Anna McNally for overcoming fears and going RX last min and getting a fab score finishing 5th in the WOD! Finally Tracy Davies for smashing an awesome score topping the women’s leaderboard! despite not long having shoulder surgery and more importantly only just mastering efficient RX HSPU last week! 

*LAST BIG PUSH TONIGHT GUYS! Let’s finish with a BANG!!!*

13.3.15 #16.3

The Celtic CrossFit 2 Affiliate Cup is hotting up and it was another awesome weekend for 16.3 with plenty of members hitting their first ever bar muscle ups and smashing the workout. 

Starting off with yet another action packed #fridaynightlights and then following on to Saturday and lots of our #celticwarriors getting up on a Sunday to either hit the workout, cheer on or judge. 

  

Kev Gibson, Ben black during WOD after getting his 1st the day before, Mark Yeandle, Alex Jones all hitting bar muscle ups for the first time, also Nat C hitting her first post baby muscle ups.

And always awesome to see John Stone working at the box post Heart Surgery. Inspirational

Then returning on Sunday after disappointment on Friday getting some Bar Muscle Up prior and post 16.3 fir one of our longest serving members, Jo Williams. Hitting her first ever bar muscle up Friday then go on to hit more during 16.3. Awesome stuff guys!!!

  

Tonight saw an opportunity for our #celticwarriors to test the thruster and then hit a sneaky couplet. 

Loads of pb’s tonight on the 1RM thruster. Ryan, Kelly, Rob, Nat, Nic, Leighton, Georgia, Geeves, Tracey, Maria, Vix, Will to name a few. The list goes on. Though couplet with heavier thruster than people are used to for this rep range. Everyone pushed themselves to the absolute limit. Top work by all. Little Rob taking top time of the night. Mention to Nic who made it up and over the box for the whole wod, sometimes in her own unique ‘Nic’ way.

Saturday Sweatfest & Celtic Bootcamp 

  

 Another fab Saturday @Celtic Crossfit, starting with our ever popular Celtic bootcamp followed by a very tough Sweatfest class! 

With a large amount of our Celtic community up supporting the 4 Celtic Crossfit Teams taking part in Wild West Winter Slam Competition, it was amazing to see so many of you in classes this morning! 

Bootcamp once again pushed our athletes to their limits! And in turn brought out the very best in all who participated! Especially Louis Alonzi ,who is slowly winning his battle to regain fitness after a long lay off. Another worthy mention goes to possibly our most dedicated member at present, Ryan Wilton, who has literally transformed his physique and all round fitness through dedication and determination! He very rarely misses a session and is working tirelessly to improve his skills and weaknesses at every opportunity! 

   

  

  

  

  

  
Next came Saturday Sweatfest…. Which brought PR’s a plenty followed by a very tasty Annie and Grace Mash up! congrats to Tracy and Alex who hit PR’s in Both Deadlift and Push Press and not to be out done Alex’s younger brother Laurence also hit a 5 rm push press pr! Another feat certainly mention worthy is Haith, that managed to link kipping pull-ups together in a workout for the first time! Another example of hard work and practice paying dividends 

   
    
    
 
Affiliate cup 2016

Oly Lifts & Skillz 

Oly Lifts and Skillz tonight @Celtic Crossfit  
 
Great work by Rhys Guard continuing to show ninja like skills, today was his 1st ever WOD using bar MU and destroying them unbroken in rounds of 7-5s.
He also clocked up the Fastest time of night. He just keeps on getting better!!! 

Katie Doff gets another mention for great kipping form on her pull-ups linking large chunks and getting better as WOD went on. 

Our fastest ladies time this evening went to Nat Tanner! Like Rhys, she is another unassuming athlete that continues to go from strength to strength!! 

Then we come to the barbell… Where Jo,Tracy and Aimee came to the fore for the ladies showing consistently smooth form throughout their lifts and it was great to see Kathleen cycling the Bb well after her return from globetrotting. 

Not to be outdone the boys also put a shift in with their cleans! Little Robs speedy return from his nasty road accident was great to see! as he and bully worked incredibly hard on speed under the bar and hitting full hip extension throughout every lift! 

And a final special mention goes to member no.1 Bridie for no repping husband and member no.2 Geeves on his press ups, that really is True Love!
