Great workout. My quads are fried. now I know I can hang power snatch 65 lbs. If I can do that, why can’t I snatch more than 90lbs.
Great job to all at the superfit games and congrats to Tom A and daughter for there performance at the rowing event.
Busy weekend – kudos to everyone who competed and put themselves out there. That’s the important thing and it makes you better for it. It’s a privilege and pleasure to train with all of you. Thank you.
Congratulations to everyone who competed in one way or another this past weekend, and, more importantly, many, many thanks to all the “supporters” who accompanied the competitors.
I apologize in advance if this is a bit long winded, but I really wanted to share a few thoughts with everyone who has not had a chance to attend a CF competition yet. These thoughts are reflective of similar conversations I had with at least two people this past weekend, one of whom I knew just slightly before this weekend, and one of whom I met for the first time.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, CF is host to a different breed of athlete, and no where is this more apparent than at CF gatherings, such as this past weekends competition. That CF can be both competitive and supportive at the same time is singularly unique. I cannot think of another activity where your competitors will try like hell to beat your time or your reps, and then turn around and cheer you on once they finish. I cannot think of another venue where members will cheer and support athletes from other gyms with as much fervor as they do their own teammates. Nor can I think of another sport where your judges can also be staunch supporters, cheering you on as they simultaneously require perfection. If anyone can think of any activity which remotely compares to this sort of atmosphere, please let me know. More importantly, if any of you have even considered attending a competition, I urge you to act on it, you won’t be sorry. Being sore never felt so good.
Very nicely put Chris. As the competitive aspect of CF grows, its imprtant to keep that spirit!
Chris, those are beautiful honest words about CF and the CF community. I can’t begin to count how many people were cheering me on and encouraging me even though I had only met them a few minutes earlier that day.
I enjoyed this workout. Even though I competed in the SuperFit games on the previous day and had to drive back in the snow (no big deal there), I felt well enough to come in and do the workout. I’m glad I did. 🙂
I used 50kg (111 lbs.) for the power snatch and OHS. My right knee felt a little “funny” so I decided to do step-ups instead of box jumps.
Congratulations to Sara, Collin, Jason, Lou, Josh, Salty, Steve, Dan, Tom A., and Sophia on a job well-done! Thanks to Jenn and Stephanie for “being there” with lots of support and photography. 🙂
@Salty: Amen, brother, amen! I feel the same way.
For those of you who have been doing CrossFit for a while and haven’t competed, your time is coming. 🙂
C’mon, get out there and compete…it really is a lot of fun (once the workouts are over)! 🙂
