Thanks Alex Evans!!! exactly what a success 1st Welsh Women’s Throwdown ended up being! The day had three of my favourite things… Crossfit, Welsh men and women and dogs. Hosted at Crossfit Pen Y Bont in Bridgend, Alex stated the concept originally originated from their ‘mam’. If you don’t talk welsh, this implies their mother. Thus I wish to expand my because of her. The ability for a great lot of feminine professional athletes to compete on neighborhood turf ended up being significantly received additionally the spaces quickly out of stock.

The big event had been set-up to pay for all eventualities with warm up gazebos full of watt bicycles and ski ergs into the car parking should Bridgend’s climate in November be somewhat bleak. It was really perfect though and I combined with various other females embraced the chance to warm up within the autumn sunlight.

The box ended up being set up well; making great use of the lifting platforms and rigging with all the spectators surrounding the professional athletes which made the encouragement and cheers task in surround sound quality. I spoke to some rivals who were excited as they had never really had the opportunity to raise on a suitable wood lifting system before.Welsh Womens Throwdown 2014 We were reminded that Crossfit Pen Y Bont houses some good welsh lifters and it also inspired us getting our lifting shoes on and acquire excited for 1RM Clean simply a) of WOD 2.
