Heavy Metcon 12/12/2018

Posted 12th December 2018 by Geoff Stewart

This is an advanced class. The main lifts are with barbells. You must know how to perform these movements without instruction and be confident in holding form whilst under fatigue. Other than that, all are welcome!

I have set up this session so you can hit the main event nice and warm and really put the peddle down. Don’t be tempted to go to heavy in part 1 and don’t be scared of the weight in part 2. When you get to part 3, go light but keep moving.
