Such a cool effort tonight team. That workout was no time easy, but you all attacked it hard.

Scaling the bar muscle ups like that will only lead you to actually getting them. Technique first and mastery of the fundamentals is what causes you to get really fit!

75 Double Unders

If you haven't seen them, get your assess upstairs to sit those peachy behinds on the new palate sofas. They are bad ass dude to the amazing skills of Sam Price, master of the sowing machine! Man they look good!

Just still be slightly wary of getting splinters, the sanding process is still to be completed.

Thank you Sam, not only do they look legit, but Ash will be spending his days stealing the internet and sleeping on the bad boys!!

Now, even though the pallet sofas upstairs look bad ass, you will have to refrain from sitting on them for a minute or two; and for two reasons:

1. Sam Price is making super cool pillows to fit them. 

2. You will get splinters in your butt cheeks as they are yet to be sanded. However, if you do forget, don't worry...Dutch Maik has selflessly volunteered to remove them for you!

I have a request team. Beth is headed to South Africa on Saturday to help set up a charity organisation called inspire children and youth.

It is run by one lady and Beth is an ambassador. They mission is to break the cycle of poverty in the rural farms outside of Cape Town.  

We are looking for any donations of clothes toys and toothbrushes, sports things and judo kit would be amazing! If anyone has anything to spare could you please bring it too the box before your next class and I shall ensure that she gets it.

Check it out on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/inspirechildrenandyouth/

Big love to all and congrats to some many folk who PB'd their squat tonight. Mel, Stu, Matt P, Sam, Katie, Jade, Ash, and that's the only ones I saw. F**king legends! We'll need to implement the PB horn.

After a moderate load squat with a cheeky rep range, we are going heavy! 

The goal for tomorrow is to progress through the reps by gradually loading the bar with more load for each set.
The mistake would be however, to start super light...in the words of Robbie Lawson..."NO, NO, NO, get after it from the start!"

Evening all. Alongside this workout update, I write to give you guys some news which I am sure many of you have actually already heard.

For many years, Brad has been the Head Coach of Reebok CrossFit Cardiff. He has guided you through workouts with support and passion, teaching you how to perform some of the more difficult movements as well as the easier ones. He has helped many of you fulfil your fitness goals and smash training targets.

Brad is now moving on to pursue other ventures. The entire team here at CrossFit Cardiff, and I’m sure it’s members too, wish him the very best for the future. 

That being said, there are exciting times ahead for CrossFit Cardiff. Keep your eyes peeled for some big changes to your box, starting next week. You won't have to look hard...
