Just in case you were not aware, the athletes - and they are athletes - who race in the Isle Of Man TT are absolutely insane! They all line up ready to rock, in the pit lanes and in order, mentally preparing to propel themselves on essentially the seat that they are sat on at over 200mph. Just imagine the mental fatigue it must take to focus so much for such a long period of time.
Just a little perspective…even I was blown away by the speed that they travel and the noise caused as a result…I flew from Liverpool airport, 199miles away, taking me 3 and a half hours to get to. The Superstock Race, won by Peter Hickman (google him) was a four lap or 152 mile race. He completed it in 52 minutes. Meaning if he had left Liverpool airport at the same time as me, by the time i’d gotten home i’d have found him sitting on my sofa, drinking my beer and smoking my cigars, stoking my puppy while wearing my slippers once he’d rowed naked in my bed…for approximately 2 and a half hours until I arrived. NUTS!

Anyway, back to normality and something as cool and exciting…a heavy day!

CrossFit Cardiff WoD

Back Squat
3 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 3*

The intention is to keep the load as straight sets, at 90% of your 1RM. The load from the first set should scare you, make you consider life, and cause you to either stand up the load with a serious risk of soiling yourself or failing…or both! Get those loads on the whiteboard before you waddle home…
