CrossFit Pi in Exeter is the most spacious and well equipped gym I have seen in a long time. The owner Martin Uttley studied at Brunel University and was a high level rugby player before opening his gym. I am not sure what I like best about this facility, the coffee dispenser, or the platforms! But I do know that it is far nicer than most CrossFit facilities in the USA and both Martin and his staff seem to be great coaches and totally dedicated to making this facility the best that it can possibly be.

I flew into Bristol Friday April 14th and I have been doing seminars in the UK for the last two weeks. The first one was at AFS CrossFit inAndover which was a pretty big seminar with 31 people attending. AFS is a nice gym and quite a few good lifters were in attendance. Chris Murray was probably the best, he is moving to 77 from 69 and was weighing about 74 on the day of the seminar. Very quick lifter who was also very consistent with his movements the whole day. He was able to snatch 125kg and tried 133kg for an all time PR but missed. He still had a hell of a day. Quite a few people also attempted the Pendlay certification with several passing. Overall a great introduction to the UK!
Snatch up to max. Allow up to 3 misses.
Clean and jerk up to one single with 80%.
post weights. For most of you, only 8 days till competition day!
Our competition is in about 13 days, the saturday after week 8 of the program. But there is only about one real week of training left, as the last week will be much lighter to taper down for the meet.
snatch, attempt a PR double.
clean and jerk, a ttempt a double at 95% of your best double.
squat, attempt a PR for one set of 5.
back squat a new PR for a set of 3
push press a new PR for a set of 3 (something more than you did for a PR set of 5 last week)
we are getting close to meet time!
