    A. Still no handstands…
    B. Worked with Kylie, she was FF and I went RX, we just finished 13 rounds. Nice to do another workout RX
    C. Stupidly followed Kirsten’s lead and went with two 15kg barbells,400m was REALLY long!

  • Steve-o says:

    A) Free standing and 1 arm play. Love the development classes!

    B) I went RX and partnered with Dave who went 50kg and we finished 18 rds just before the buzzer πŸ™‚
    I had a solo Mini-Chief in my Open Gym plan that I did on Wednesday so I think I’m well and truly squatted out today!

  • Ray Simonsen says:

    A) Just trying to get my first handstand push up. I can now lover myself down to an abmat without killing myself…Can get back up though.

    B) Worked with Sam “Five-0” Bettison at 40kg FF. Finished 20 Rounds.

    HAHA say no to peer pressure Sharon!

  • Cindyd says:

    A: Played around with kipping & strict HSPU these felt good, handstand holds & wall walks weren’t great, as abs didn’t like it.

    B: Worked with Fee, she went rx, I did the power cleans @30kgs. We did 15 rounds 5 push ups. Really pleased with how my push ups felt, compared to the last few weeks, small gains.

    Great working with Fee, we had plenty of laughs, choice words, sweat & burps. Btw if anyone wants to learn how to power clean using safety grip, give me a shout, happy to demo πŸ˜‰
