The workouts are crazy this year.
My guy guido Trinidad just secured a spot in the games, he's a beast.
For what it's worth, Jaime Gold uses my products .
Are you guys going to be at the mid-atlantic regionals?
Back Squat 435lbs
Shoulder Press 195lbs
Bench Press 315lb
While all the second events look brutal, that first one makes me absolutely cringe. I have rowed 2000m once and was so dead after, I can't imagine trying to do all that stuff too, rowing sucks all the energy I have out of me.
Deadlift - 475, Front Squat - 320, Back Squat - 405
Some fun looking workouts! Sometime I will have to try that workout #2. That is the only one that might break me. I might well hit a brick wall on those hang cleans. Maybe I'll get a little stronger first . . .
One of the girls from my affiliate made Mid Atlantic regionals. Pretty impressive imo for a box with less than 100 members. She's tough!
My god Rich Froning is a BEAST! I just watched him live on the internet in event 2. He destroyed everybody and looked like he could have done the workout for a second round.
People say Crossfit makes you good at everything and great at nothing, but I guarantee nobody on this board could hang with him in any kind of event (except belial). He sets the standard of what Crossfit can do.
When I grow up, I'm going to be rich froning.
I was at the Mid AtLantic Regionals on Sat. Saw Gretchen compete. She was awesome! Actually, there was much awesomeness on display!
Some of that looks tough, but stuff like handstand pushups is what makes people scratch their head when it comes to crossfit. The 2011 finals in on ESPN right now. Two of the events they showed at a softball toss and walking handstands...

"Now we're finally getting to the chicken or the egg question," I grinned. "Did I eat all that food because my size gives me more of an appetite, or did I get to be this big because I've been forcing myself to eat like this for years?"

i knew you were a beast but not that kinda of a beast that eats grown men and children.. lilmase
The softball thing was stupid, but one of crossfit's principles of fitness is to go and play/learn new sports regularly.
Handstands are a big part of gymnastics, which plays a big role in crossfit. But I do agree that whole 3-part event was kind of a waste, but still fun to watch imo.
Oh ya that's right. I read about him doing that, I say he still needs to add 5-10 more.
Guido Trinidad was at mid atlantic, I'm happy he finally made it to the games. I watched him miss out at last years regionals. That guys a beast.
Anybody watching what Jason Khalipa and Neal Maddox are doing? They are training partners.
So far out of four events, Jason placed 2nd, 1st, 2nd, 1st.
And Maddox - 1st, 2nd, 1st, 2nd.
That's insane, and cool because they're good friends.
Long live the sport of exercise. Impressive strength on display at tyhe regionals.
Move heavy weight, eat, sleep, repeat.
Geniuses make complicated scenarios simple, morons take simple concepts and complicate them.
Handstand push ups are pretty much over head presses... so why would they be considered strange?
Also, I watched a lot of regionals... can't wait for the games.. seems like some of the usuals will be at the podium though... both good and bad.
I agree. The competitor field is increasing dramatically but the legends are still in top form. I hated to hear josh bridges couldn't compete this year. He was phenomenal last time.
