We spent the day in Illinois at CrossFit Barrington today (it’s still Saturday right?) at a Pressing workshop with Brian, Chris, and some of their trainers and members. Everyone did great and as we pulled up, Chris was just finishing his Squat portion of the CF Total. He was saving the press for our session and ended up with a 20# PR after adjusting his technique. Afterwards, we benched and played with their Logs with more PR’s being set in the Log clean and press. Thanks to everyone at CF Barrington for having us out again, we look forward to the next time and have some exciting events in the works for the future. OH! I got a little nervous when I saw Tony walking up to Chris as he was pressing. Cuz we don’t spot the press ya know. Ever. But he was just getting into position to help Chris walk the bar in afterwards. All’s well.
While we were busy actually working, the big boys in Columbus were finishing up the 2013 Arnold Classic Strongman contest. Congratulations to Lithuania’s Vytautas Lalas for his win; Brian Shaw for his 2nd place finish and Misha Koklaev for his podium finish in 3rd place.
Sending strong healing thoughts to Americans Derek Poundstone with a bicep tear and Adam Scherr with a muscle belly tear.
