We ran through a lot of the moves I had previously learnt, and also introduced a new move called the 'clean', which was basically, beginning in a deadlift position, shrugging your shoulders as you bring the bar up, and then dropping down into a squat position and bringing the bar up to shoulder height, how you would have it if you were doing a front squat. We spent ages on this move, I found it hard to get my head around, but managed eventually. Need to keep working on my technique though. Also tried double-unders again, and I just couldn't do it! I was getting more and more frustrated. I'm going to do it some day soon.
I then did a fitness test which I will do again at some point as a measure of how much my fitness has improved. My muscles were really aching from my PT session yesterday, so I did struggle and I know I could have performed a lot better had my muscles been okay. I was also really tired as I stayed up half the night preparing for my seminar, but enough excuses haha.
This was what I had to do:
50 air squats
40 sit ups
20 press ups
10 pull ups
30 KB swings with 12 KG
I did it in 11:03 minutes. I have no idea what other kinds of times people manage to do this in, so not sure how pathetic my attempt is in comparison, haha. But I want to keep exact track of every measurement so that I know exactly how I have improved.
Tomorrow, I will do my first session, which I will write about after. I am either going to do the kettlebells or abs class, I haven't quite decided, as they are both on at the same time. What crossfit abs class entails I slightly dread to think, but I'm excited. I then have my second PT session friday morning, so oh what joy he has in store for me then, we'll see.
