Helen and Press!

A catch up from the last couple of days. We have been packing up, getting our container booked and working out.

Yesterday Donna, Jason and Celeste hit "Helen" 3 rounds for time of Run 400m 21 Kettlebell Swings and 12 Pull Ups.

Donna: 13:09 - 1 Pood KB, Blue Band Pull Ups (PR 1st time using 1 Pood)

Jason: 14:23 - 1.5 Pood KB, this should have been about 2 minutes faster, but Jason had to keep taping up his hands.

Celeste: 12:32 - 12kg KB, Jumping Pull Ups. Great first day with Kettlebell Swings :-)

I did a nasty little thing that CrossFit 603 sent me, a workout that is easy on your hands, mine is still recovering from the weekend.

"Crouching Tiger"
30 Squats
15 Push Ups
30 Pistols
15 Push Ups
30 Walking Lunges
15 Push Ups
30 Box Jumps (I used an 18" box)
15 Push Ups

Time: 6:38 - very hard on the legs, by the end of the lunges they felt a bit like jelly!

Then today Donna and I hit the gym to get some pressing in. First 5 sets of 3.

Donna: 65-70-70-75# x 2
Matt: 95-11-125-135-145#

Then a protocol of 12-9-6 (We both started too heavy and had to back off)

Donna: 60 (x11)-57-57
Matt: 115 (x9)-105-105#

Now we are both looking forward to a weekend of Oly lifting and mountain biking :-)
