I Competed at Battle Cancer

On Saturday the 20th of October, I competed at Battle Cancer alongside 3 of my CrossFit friends; Pete, Phil and Matt. The event had somewhere around 1,000 people attending to watch a range of CrossFit teams compete with one another.

I managed 14 unbroken Double-Unders

I know this isn't a massive achievement, but I have a goal to get to 50 unbroken DUs by the end of the year. The other week, I managed to get 14 unbroken which is the most I have done so far. I'll keep you updated with my progress, but for now you can check the video below and follow me for more Crossfit updates.

Turn your WordPress Website into a Progressive Web App (PWA)

Some of you may be wondering what a PWA actually is, allow me to explain. It's a JavaScript file that uses Web Sockets that performs various tasks. Tasks such as caching your files for faster page loads. Caching also allows a user to view your website even when the user is offline. This means they can still view all of your wonderful content in mobile or broadband blackspots. This does however mean that it won't be up to date until they have an internet connection, but at least they can still view something.

💪 Wodemocracy 💪

I have created a website that I hope can bring a bit more fun and community for all CrossFitters. You can submit a workout of your choice and others can vote on that workout. If yours is the most voted, then it will become the workout of the day, the very next day. If you haven't got a workout, then that's okay, you can vote on other's and encourage them to create more workouts.
