Being in a new space can be intimidating, the equipment is almost always different, bars can be slippery, but I find it great to challenge myself and see other athletes. This particular box was underground with a night club feel. It had all modern equipment and the coach got straight into the workout (my kind of coach).

3,2,1 go…..Wallballs felt fine. I did sets of 10. Snatches took forever with sets up 5. They felt very heavy and I was moving slow but stuck to my plan. Toes-to-bar I did sets of 8. This movement felt very challenging, my grip on the bar was the main issue and I struggled to hold on. Overhead squats sets of 10, I finally felt more warmed up at this point. Lateral bar burpees just got my heart rate up so I tried to say steady. Keep moving but not push too hard because the bar MU was next.

This is when the workout started to kick my ass. I failed my first 2 attempts at the bar MU. My body was beat. With the pressure of the clock ticking away I finally got a set of 2 MU after one solid minute of rest. Feeling more confident with a few MU under my belt I began to chip away until I was done. Bar MU have never felt so hard, I definitely need to do more of these under extreme fatigue like this.

Overall a fantastic workout and a great way to start the day before site-seeing, eating and drinking my way through London.

It was hard to get going on this morning workout. I felt like I was resting too long after my short set, and I was. I broke the sets into 5-5-5, 4-4-4, 4-5 on the power snatches and unbroken on the Overhead Squats. Everything else I was able to move right through.

Both pieces took around the same time a little over 6 minutes. Next time I will build up to a heavier Snatch and Overhead squat to open my shoulds up a little more.
