Week Commencing 08052017

Another nicely varied week!  Hit 15 snatches @65, most volume I have done at that weight, and had an epic strongman session on Friday with ‘atlas stone’ (heavy slam ball) work, farmers carries and yoke walks.

Picking up and moving with heavy stuff is so good for you – try it out, pretty much everything will benefit!
