Crossbody RDL
Cleans
Reverse lunges.
6 reps of each trying to move smooth👌🏼

The @niketraining metcon free TR v8 is a great little day to wear from kettle bell flows. Newer sassy colours out too.

Best part of today was hanging out with these fellers! (And our cheerleading squad! 🕺🚶‍♀️🚶‍♂️👬👬)

We got the win for the day and I think we gave it everything which is way more important👌🏼💪🏼🧠

i didn’t. Go into this competition very prepared with a week of from 🤧 and quite a high entasis on tempo bench press... think I moaned a lot 😂, however the energy the boys put out made it an absolute blast to push along side them. Pure inspo tings

Fun to open up the lungs today and push into a few rounds of fast paced intervals.

Missed my @hy3rid_coaching boys and @chrisjillard today but managed to get some bits done single player mode. Dosed up on @noccouk and @xendurance_eu tabs. Feeling good for some competition in a few days! #nationalfitnessgames

Jumped in with @auckies2 iron man training today we ran 21.something km. chatted laughed said good morning to 98% of the people we saw and generally had a good run. Last 1/4 was tough but fun all the same. •
So this week I’ve learnt some new skills in gymnastics. Overhead squatted 160 kegs Hit 200kg for a relatively easy bs double and run a 1/2 marathon with a mate. I love training and love seeing what I can do. End of some testing now and time to build and see what comes ups next!

#xendurance_eu (big help with the tabs and the pwo shakes) #noccouk (for the buzz) #compexuk (for the recovery) #niketraining (for the kit that makes it feel easy) #life #fitnessjourney #run #lift #inspo #fitfam #fun #doitforyou

I love seeing progress but I also love the process 🏋️‍♀️ Isn’t it funny when you get a set number in your head and everything else is nothing.
160 was the goal for this test and I really wanted it. 157 or even 159.5 that’s something would have left me feeling crap.
Think i missed about 6 jerks before this lift but unlike most days I had no quit in me.
this was the first attempt at the squat (6th jerk) and managed to lock it in. Felt good. Felt fun as you can hear @mauds13 And @willjharrison58 We’re probably glad I’d finished 😂🤷🏻‍♂️ i trained pretty badly after think I spent all beans getting it done.

What’s your favourite ski erg workout?
Was going to take on one of @rhoddydavies beastie workouts today but just took inspiration instead!
100 dips 100 push ups 100 bicep curls 15 cal ski at every 20 reps completed
Love the simplicity and brutality of the strength and cardio combo.

Today’s workout a twist on a workout from @cardibro and @bridgesj3
In a team of 3
300cal bike
300cal row
300cal ski
Every 2 mins 10 burpees and then swap machines keep going until all machines read 300 or over. “Fun” 35:25 mins
Grab some mates and give it a go. Or go solo and work through 100cals on each •

Little bit of fun with the Nike chalkboards, but the serious note, in any competition or in life try to be the best you, control the things you can effect. Don’t worry too much about others or what the next person is doing, just do you! If that fails find something that gives you energy visualise a positive outcome and hit that energy boost!
1 day until the open, get after it!

Big week coming up for a lot of people. The open, sanctioned events, mo fitness. What can you do to be the best you can be?

Go with the flow like H20
Visualise the outcome if I’d doesn’t go your way visualise a positive route.
Focus on the positive
Rehearse the worse case scenario and plan for various problems in advance
Do your best and free your attachment to winning (or any specific outcome) winning is me putting it all out there!
Do your best. This can mean more than trying hard it can be a mindset and overcoming slip ups
Respect your opponent they are there to bring the best out of you
Don’t underestimate or belittle anyone, be kind, be nice, but be you,
Get used to hardship, workouts / results and things not going your way are all part of it
Train hard fight easy.
That said don’t overdo training and rest appropriately, know your body stay sharp but sound over grind your blade!
Eat, sleep, train and think right. Positive talk goals and your own language can make better outcomes
Use affirmations to shift focus on what you want. “I’m a strong mo fo that never lets competition define me”
“Once a workout is done it’s done I don’t let it affect my next move”
Let go of the ego.
Let go of attachment
SIMPLIFY

This is an adjusted summery from a nice little book I read with my eyes one time 😂🤷🏻‍♂️ #thinkingbodydancingmind #wayofthechampion #inspo #snatch #lift #bestyou #xendurance_eu #crossfitnidus #plan #prep #theopen #strengthindepth #fitfam
