Last night was Crossfit night. Tuesday night seems to be purely weightlifting training (which I love) and last night we worked on front squats, starting at 5 reps and progressing our way to 1 rep. As I didn't know what my 1 rep max was I had to feel my way a little bit and ended up at 40 kg which I was pretty pleased with as I still had good form. I asked the trainer to keep an eye on me when I did the lift to ensure I was okay. The best part of the night was watching one of the other girls in the group. Every time I have been to a session she has had to modify her lifts and I have never seen her use a bar for squats as she normally scales her workouts with dumbbells. Last night she achieved a PB of 17.5 kg, with a 15 kg bar and 1.25 kg plates and she was so excited. The best bit was when the trainer high-fived her. There was as much excitement for her achievements as there was for the boys lifting much more. It's great to be in such a positive environment.
