I can’t believe it has been weeks since I’ve worked out. I did a few deadlifts and some box carry during my recent move to North London but that really doesn’t do much. I was a bit scared signing up yesterday for Tom’s class as he is a know ball buster with his team and hero WODs. But I figured I can always scale down and get some proper work done.

I realized that my head was not screwed in properly and I had still a bit of a problem with the ankle during the snatch barbell gymnastics. But I’m looking forward to getting that skill sorted, I hope it will get programmed in more. I was not disappointed with the workout though, heavy deadlifts a burpees. I knew I couldn’t do Rx at 140kgs (my 1RM as it stands is 120kgs) so I opted for 90kgs which felt heavy enough. In retrospect, I think I could have gone 100kgs as my form didn’t really go ape shit and I could bang out good sets and managed to get up to 7 of 12 burpees. In fact I really don’t feel sore today, I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not but at least I’m back and hopefully I can go balls to the wall soon.
