Hope your week has been great. How is the training going? Are you a runner, crossfitter, cyclist, gym junkie, yogi? I’ve been modding this week, it is my last week of modifying before I can start back lifting and squatting. I have been doing lots of strict pullups, ring dips and handstand pushups … I know this will help these movements when I get to start back properly again. Below is our Bench Press workout we did this week.
Going down to Wooloongong last weekend was so fun. You can see photos from the trip on my instagram account @fitandstyle_ or on facebook. For those of you who do not CrossFit. In CrossFit we do the CrossFit Open which is a worldwide event. From there the top 30 in the region (both men and women) go to the Regionals to compete for spots to the CrossFit Games in Carson USA. The CrossFit Games is like the World Champs for CrossFit, the best in the world come together to battle it out for the top spots. This was my first time to the Pacific Regionals (as i am coming up 2 years of CrossFitting next week) It was a great atmosphere, getting to see so many people I know and the fittest in the Pacific Region doing their best. It puts it into perspective when you watch these athletes and then go and attempt the WOD yourself … big reality check. Dave Castro was there on the friday, and he was such a good sport – stopping to let us take photos.
Met some new peeps on my travels … the lovely Kayla who was interviewing all the winners. She is a sweetheart and wore Fit and Style Kettlebell earrings
It’s great to have people to inspire you. I think part of the fitness journey is to be able to connect with people who keep you motivated. It doesn’t matter what sport you do or type of fitness, weather it is a motivational quote or following someones journey on instagram, having a source of inspiration I find is really helpful – especially on the days you are tired, sore or just have lost your mojo.
Here are the kettlebell earrings Kayla was wearing … I love them because you can wear them training too (they don’t get in the way) you will find them here
