“Nobody said it would be easy but everybody said it was worth it.” –Steve Prefontaine
Today is a strength day with two elements happening at the same time. Athletes had five attempts to find their 5-rep max deadlift and heaviest 5-rep pull-up. For some, it meant dropping down in elastic band strength and trying to pull more of their body weight. For others, adding to their body weight by using a weighted vest, clenching a dumbbell in between their feet or whatever creative method they came up with to add to their body weight.
The last element is 500m row. It is amazing how an event lasting 2 minutes or shorter can totally smash you. We had a guest CrossFitter join the 5:30pm class today from CrossFit Solano. He snagged the fastest 500m row with a blazin’ 1:26. He wasn’t as excited as we were for him. His PR is 1:23.
