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

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.
