“The Road to 2011”
After an epic weekend in California, the 2010 CrossFit games are over. There are new title holders, and now a pack of athletes planning on dethroning them. Whatever happens, I will guarantee CrossFit DC will field an Affiliate team!
After a skill session on the rings, our workout was based on one of the workouts from the Affiliate competition.
RUN 250 M.
15 JUMPS OVER BOX
15 PUSHUPS (HANDS MUST LIFT OFF THE DECK EACH REP)
15 DB SQUAT CLEANS
30 DOUBLE UNDERS
15 KNEES TO ELBOWS
30 M. WALKING LUNGE
Affiliate Cup: Yes
Any Competition 2 Mos Before: No
I was definintely pumped to try at least one WOD from the Games this weekend, and since we didn’t have any wheelbarrows or stadiums around, Affiliate Cup WOD#2 it was. Had a great team with Erica, Ami, Reggie and Andrew, and tried to apply a few tactics used in L.A. to our own version of the workout. The surprise for me, as always, was just how bad the DB Cleans are – I hear 45lbs and think “easy” only to have them hand my ass to me. As you can see in the picture, I tried to use a little mental persuasion to get them to move on their own, but sadly, they did not comply.
