Crossfit is all well and good but I had a few sessions where my WL suffered as a result and that was enough to make me aware of my real priorities.

For the foreseeable I shall be focusing solely on my WL total. I'm determined to give everything to get 240 in the upcoming Northern open and qualify for the English champs next year as a 94. After that it's all about qualifying for the British Champs, a goal which I would be incredibly proud to achieve.

My plan can be found here:

First session is tonight and I'm excited! It's going to be a lot of work but I have to give it a proper shot.

Good stuff!

Plan looks sweet, very similar to Cleggys! Did he give you a bit of help with it?

Good luck.

He had a look at it and said it was ok.

Shaun's recent training really clicked with me and it's basically a better thought through version of the training I do already.

Biggest thing is I'm snatching every session and I'm going to have to be cautious with how much volume I hit so I don't break myself. That's 30 sessions of snatch compared with the 12 I would normally do in any 6 week slot! High risk, hopefully high reward...

Thanks Andy!

Good move!

I'm aiming for a 240kg total on Sunday at the northern masters and I'll be in the 94's as well so the challenge is on!

Of course, I'll probably get a 200kg total and be really pissed off!

PS. That routine would just kill me! Heavier and heavier for the next 6-7 weeks. Ouch....but Shaun's done it so there's absolutely no reason why you can't mate.

70 2
90 1
