no images were foundHoly Schlamoly!! This past weekend was a blast, and all the credit in the world goes to Jackson and Kevin for busting their asses all weekend long against some very tough competition! From Chest-to-Bar Pullups (with a 20lb Medicine Ball held between their legs) to Deadlifts and Double-Unders, through a hellish “Fran-like” workout (with 115lb Squat Clean Thrusters) and then a Kettlebell Killer, they were awesome throughout. Photos from the event are in the Photo Gallery, and I’m working on putting together a video montage so you can all get a chance to enjoy watching them show us what CrossFit is all about.
Believe me when I say that they earned every bit of the rest they’re taking in today’s photo (which was taken immediately after the Pullups/Squat Clean Thrusters WOD). Jackson even went so far as to say that he never wants to see another blue bumper plate again in his life (they weigh 35lbs each, by the way). Well, you know me…when I hear about something that someone hates, I put it into a workout as soon as possible. What does that mean? It means I brought 14 of those blue bumper plates from the competition home with me, just so that Jackson can overcome (or perhaps deepen) his hatred for them. You’re welcome Jack.
Jackson, by the way, improved on his 34th place finish at the Mid-Atlantic Hopper Challenge in November by tying for 25th place at the SuperFit Games this past weekend. Congratulations Jack! I’ll name one of the new blue bumper plates after you!
And Kevin, who placed 17th at the Hopper, finished in the TOP TEN this weekend with an awesome 8th place overall! Congratulations Kevin! And since you expressed a similar sentiment for rowing as Jackson did for those blue bumper plates, I’m considering naming one of the rowers after you!
