And so another year goes by and the open is finally closed!!! Here's to not seeing Fran again for the rest of the year!
Moving onto better and more important things:
Well done guys and girls..t'was a brutal season this year and hey, benchmarking week starts after Easter...REJOICE!
Anyway until then we train as usual:
Snatch 5 x 2 @75%+
Clean Pulls (scaled to deadlifts for Beginners) 4 x 3 @ 110%+
Front Squat 4 x 3 @80%+
Complete in a 10min AMRAP
(teams of 2 - starting at 2 reps, increasing by 2 reps every round)
Burpee Box Jump Overs
Wall Ball Shots
That was a BOUNCE'Y Weekend. A bit thanks to everyone who came down!
Today's WOD CF Games 15.5
27-21-15-9 reps for time of:
Thrusters @ 43/29kg
If you have completed your attempt, then you will be working strength:
Pull Ups 5 x 5
Squats 5 x 5
Push Ups 5 x 5 (work on variation that gives you 5 reps)
In a movement perspective 2+2 does not equal 4. Only in a perfect world scenario would such an equation hold true. PAPOWWW! We don't live in one, so 2+2=39 (or whatever number you want). Why? @ movements mashed together can create endless possibilities? If you train with us, you know what I mean!
This is a theory I learnt from my coach Ido Portal and I'm passing onto you!
Move today so you can tomorrow!

5 Deadlifts @ 60/40kg

Now that life is normalising...me coming to terms with being a single dad (and Anita getting back this week from overseas), I am finally able to time manage better and put the WODs up online again. Phew! Looking after 2 girls is hard work when you are by yourself. It helps when they are good kids.

I'm not a man of many words. So I will keep this short.
Yuri Marmerstein was over from Vegas this last weekend at CrossFit 3039 in Moonee Ponds and here is what I have to say about it!
This last weekend was a bit of everything - enlightening, informative, aggressive, exhaustive, fun, playful and a reality check.
So in line with keeping it simple, I have outlined what I learnt over the weekend:
