The aim is to work as high up the six times table as you can in 25 minutes with every exercise. The snatches are divided in half for each hand. Well done team.

Bit of an epic ladder session this evening. One of those times that everyone really put in 100% and a bit more. I have a feeling there will be some sore bodies tomorrow though :-)

Started tonight with some presentations of Tshirts for Dave, Charlotte and Wayne. well done again to the three of you.

The Session tonight was aimed at taxing the grip and a chance to experiment with efficiency of the swing and snatch to preserve grip strength. Two minutes at the end of each round doing alternating superman to strengthen the core muscles.

We finished off with some playing about with bottoms up clean and press and bottoms up windmills.

More of a strength based session this morning with double Kettlebells.

7/7 x Seasaw seated shoulder press - 3 sets of ideally ascending weights

7/7 x Alternating bent over row starting with bells in top position - 3 sets of ideally ascending weights

7/7 x seasaw rolling chest press in bridge position - 3 sets of ideally Ascending weights

To finish off we did some swing/ Snatch technique work.

Also worth mentioning that Charlotte did her Biathlon training on her own and has been working through her programme with Annie for the last few weeks. It's not easy doing it on your own but shows her mental Strength which will ultimately get her far. Well done Charlotte.
