#flashbackfriday to CrossFit Games Open 12.5

With the 2014 CrossFit Games Open coming fast, I am getting fired up for this season to kick off! I have been building up to some serious capacity in my training and I feel like my engine is firing in a big way! Today I’m flashing back to my best ever performance in the Open with the fifth and final workout in 2012. Thrusters and chest-to-bar pull ups are definitely BUTTER for me…the workout details were:

Complete as many reps as possible in 7 minutes following the rep scheme below:
100 pound Thruster, 3 reps
3 Chest to bar Pull-ups
100 pound Thruster, 6 reps
6 Chest to bar Pull-ups
100 pound Thruster, 9 reps
9 Chest to bar Pull-ups
100 pound Thruster, 12 reps
12 Chest to bar Pull-ups
100 pound Thruster, 15 reps
15 Chest to bar Pull-ups
100 pound Thruster, 18 reps
18 Chest to bar Pull-ups
100 pound Thruster, 21 reps
21 Chest to bar Pull-ups…

I finished with 147 reps which got me all the way through the 21 thrusters. My performance was good for 34th best in the world for 12.5 and in SoCal it earned me a 6th place spot. Cannot wait for this year to get going! Much butter will be spread at CrossFit Kinnick…I am hungrier than ever.

#flashbackfriday to My First Muscle Up Ever!

Taking it way back for #flashbackfriday to my first muscle up in my garage where CrossFit Kinnick began. This was about 6 months into CrossFit for me. We’ve come a long way! Check out the video and the pic of our set up! My little brother Jonathan built everything by hand: pull ups bars, squat racks, lifting platform, GHD, rings, parallettes…good times!
