Re: Extending an invitation to peeps

I watch a vlog by an English guy - Craig aka TeamRichey, been doing it for some time, now it seems that John has been watching TeamRichey too

John tagged him and contacted TeamRichey, the Craig mentioned him in a vlog, so I checked it out.

Just so happens that now and then I will check out John to see how things are, and on that day I saw Crossfit Darkside, but I follow TeamRichey as Craig has allot to offer and he is down to earth.

Re: Extending an invitation to peeps

Go and get them Alex. My coach says to focus on a 20# + pr and then your mind and body is ready for that. I was set on 275 and that is what I got. If I were focused on 285 then maybe would have done that. Was an easy 275.. go for it brother.

Re: Extending an invitation to peeps

Got some inspiration from you the other day Vic when i watched the vlog so planned a squat clean day today.... new PR from 100kgs/220lbs to 108kgs/237lbs...

Goal was 5kgs but it flew up so i added 3kgs but caught the bar a little high on my throat which put my balance off which made it hard getting it up.

The positive thing is that i know i can get under the bar fast and with me hitting the bar so high means i have the strength to go heavier which in turn means i canīt get the bar up as high but i should be able to meet it perfectly. Need to work on my front squat max to help this.
