Fighters trained by Brighton Kettlebells sweeped the board at the last ZT Fight Night- Night of the Champions at Hove Town Hall last Friday!
Amongst them was Ivam Maciel, a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner who’s signature triangle choke caught out his opponent Matt Plock. Ivam has been attending the Kettlebell Fighter classes and believe me he kills it during the long rounds of kettlebell and body weight exercises! Some circuits last up to 8 minutes!
The full-to capacity crowd saw a great spectacle of fighting, ending with a glorious win by ex-Strongman Oli Thompson, who defeated his opponent with a furious ground and pound. Well done also to Laura Howarth who must’ve looked so mean, her opponent did not want to fight her and pulled out! Nice job!
Awesome night guys…now lets get back in the gym and kill it!
Waking at 7am, my whole body was sore and tight in all the wrong places! Man this was gonna be hard! Hopefully you read the report from Day 1 (below), Day 2 also had some nice little surprises up its sleeve!
The format was similar, learn some moves and the theory behing them, then practice them in front of your group till you get it right! The cherry of the day was the four station circuit: Pull ups, then snatches, then ring muscle-ups, then a monster workout involving some med balls and push ups! (see pic below!) You had to do 7 med ball cleans (10kg), run to the far end of the hall, then do 7 press ups, run back to the ball and repeat over and over….for 10 minutes! Let me take this opportunity to thank all the professional Crossfit Cert team, who led with inspiration and true professionalism. Thanks also to Sol and Alex for sharing this wicked weekend with me…now let’s go kill some clients!
Day 1 is over and Christian, Sol and Alex are well and truly mullered!
What a day it’s been! Baking 28 degrees conditions, squatting, pressing and deadlifting in an exposed Army Air base is a hell of a day to spend the day! We’ve loved every minute…lot’s learnt and plenty of inspiration to take back to our classes. The format is great…learn shit, read about shit, absorb shit, then get out there and do the shit!
The cherry on the icing was having to do the FRAN workout. For those not familiar with the pain, here it is: 21 Barbell Thrusters (squatting then pressing the bar overhead) 21 Pull ups 15 Thrusters 15 Pull Ups 9 Thrusters 9 Pull Ups
This is done without rest..and for time! I achieved a 5.01 time, with bad form, light weight and jumping pull ups. Its a killer..gonna work on this one!
