27.8.15 #Cleans&PBs

Today saw another great day of sessions at the box. With PRs to start the day at DP another 2 sessions of Strength and Conditioning from their pre season summer block. With plenty exiting opportunities and developments to come for our promising youngsters.

PM classes carried on the standard set by dawn patrol with lots of PRs being chalked up.

In class 1 it was the youngers (Max, Alex and Euan) who were demonstrating superb technique in there cleans. Can’t wait to see some of them in the upcoming Welsh teen throw down. 

In class 2 Abbi nearly surpassed her 1RM for a triple and bully and Sam hitting some big numbers. 

Class 3 carried on the theme with Claudia, lorna, Hannah and Ami hitting new PRs.

2.7.15 #grippy

Tough mental game tonight. Lots of #celticwarriors hitting a new version of an unpopular movement (lunges), with superb technique and form, and then going hard on a very grippy WOD, with most deciding to just shake out there arms, whilst Hannah K deciding to very agressivly punch her forearm to get it going again. Big shout out to Abbie and Katie Doff who’s partnership pushed each other to the limit, with both of them hitting the RX’d weight for the cleans in the WOD. Liam cycling a heavy barbell as quickly as possible whilst maintaining excellent form. 

In addition a big shout out to Stuart who has been pushing himself every session, and is one of the most coachable members we have. Thank you Stuart, it has been a pleasure to coach you and see you develop so much in such a short period of time, keep it going!

Firstly I would just like to say what an amazing community we have at Celtic CrossFit, an amazing atmosphere this evening in hot and sweaty conditions. 

A tough couplet tonight for the Celtic Warriors. Surprisingly GRIPPY!! 

Big shout out to Sam who went to that dark place hitting the fastest RX’d time of the night, Kelly M who’s movement allowed her to smash all her T2B and young Rose, Katie and Jo demonstrating age is just a number.

Another packed day at the box, with yet more significant progress made by our amazing Celtic Warriors. Today, saw us hit Muscle ups, one of the show piece movements that every Crossfiter aspires to achieve. This skill does not come easy and requires a sound foundation of strength and plenty of practice on the transition from below to above the rings. Every one of our classes managed this today, now have a clear understanding of how to build strength in order to be core successful or more efficient at this skill

Athletes that showed particular promise on the transitional phase included, Kira, Hannah, Maria, Michael, Stuart, Tracy, Georgia and Rob Hoff

We also got Rhys to string together his first ever consecutive muscle ups

Also in a very nasty workout we saw Jess get her first ever Toes 2 bar and Kira and Dave Vigar making real progress in their efficiency of this very tricky movement.

Great night again everyone!! More next week. We we will hopefully get some more of us moving to those big boy rings!

Big Milestone for her already breaking down barriers thanks to the help and Celtic Warrior spirit shown by our lovely Warriorettes.
