Crossfit Games

5 Apr

Rick and I participated in the Sectionals of the Crossfit Games on March 27th and 28th at Mitty High School in San Jose.  Over 250 men and 150 women paticipated in the two day event.  While we didn’t qualify for Regionals, we had a great time competing and really absorbed the spirit that all the athletes and fans brought to the event.  The workouts and competitiveness was fierce, but everyone was supportive and in the end what mattered was that you gave it your all.  I know it sounds like an advertisement, but it even shocked me!  Anyway, here are the workouts we went through:

Saturday, Workout 1:

In 6 minutes, you ran 800 meters and then completed as many overhead squats as possible with 115lbs.

Saturday, Workout 2:

10 minutes, AMRAP:

7 Barbell Thrusters @ 115 lbs

12 Kettle Bell Swings @ 55lbs

7 Chest to Bar Pull-ups

Sunday – Chipper

6 minutes to register your best Clean and Jerk.

Immediately following the 6 minutes you had to complete the following for time:

25 Burpees

100 yards of Walking Lunges

5 Rounds of 15 DB Thrusters and a 100 yard Farmers Walk @ 40lbs

25 Burpees

500 m Row

450m sprint.

Only 357 days left of training until next year!

    I was lucky enough to get to both days of the competition and as a client of FIT, I have to say it was epic fun to watch Jimmy and Rick in a competitive scenario instead of a sideline position. I took my opportunity to loudly coach them and point out all their technique flaws.. 🙂 Truth be told, they did so great and I was very proud of them and our CF program. Great job Jimmy and Rick!!
