NW Regional!

This weekend marks the Reebok CrossFit Northwest Regional! If you want to see CrossFit in its finest form showcasing some of the fittest athletes on the planet right here in our own backyard, clear your calendars for this Friday, Saturday and Sunday! The throw-down will take place at the Americraft Showplex at the Puyallup Fairgrounds. Favorite CFS athletes include Jesse Disch our honorary fire breather and my sis Jenny Olson of CrossFit Redmond. Both will be giving their all and will need our support. All the details you need to know are here. If you are not able to be there all three days follow the real-time score board for up to the minute results.

Weighted pull-ups 2-2-2-2-2-2-2 reps

Post loads to comments.

then…

5 Rounds for max reps of:

30 seconds of CFS 2012-style push ups

30 seconds of unbroken ring support (use a band if necessary)

Rest 1 minute

Post reps completed on the push ups and any scaling of any part of the WOD to comments.

For the push ups and ring support we are looking for external rotation of the shoulders. That means at the top of both movements it is like you are trying to turn your arms out. On both movements your are also looking to keep the shoulders back by pinching the shoulder blades together.

    245/255/275
    65 push-ups
    Unbroken on ring supports but it was really difficult.

  14. Now being at CFS for closing on a year I “want” to blab a bit about Steve’s comments and other’s improvement on these elements in the WOD. I find it VERY exciting to see the newer people than I improving similarly and seeing their frustrations change to satisfaction with the first after doing so much sub’ing and/or injury recovery effort. We’re all there (well maybe not Jeff or Charity) and as we see the improvement in others it gives us (me) encouragement for all the skills and stamina that are still goals.

    It’s also fun to look back at some of the top people (now) a year or two ago on the blog to see them struggle similar to how I do now.

    I still think it impossible to be up to the skill level to compete at regionals but this year I’ll watch and maybe next games I’ll consider training for it…

  15. Thank you for all of your support. Excited to see all you CFSers down in Puyallup.
