Games Throwback Highlights

July 8, 2020

Team,

 

Every now and then I like to look back at previous CrossFit Games highlights.  They show us how exciting this activity can be when competed for at the highest level, as well as how far we have come.

 

Each year athletes are stronger and more skilled, with more capacity to do intense bouts of work.

 

With the 2020 CrossFit Games still aiming to be held in September, we still might get to see this year's fittest battle it out. But until then, here are some highlights from back in 2014, when our very own Lucas Parker competed at the Games:

 

 

 

TRAINING WEDNESDAY - THURSDAY

 

WARM UP:

 

2 rounds - 5 lying thoracic rotations per side, 10 double leg glute bridge, 2 spiderman lunges  

 

Then

 

2 rounds - 20 air squats, 10 T rotation planks, 5 back roll to straddle stretch

 

 

WOD:  SPICE IT UP

 

This is a tough combo of two amraps with a pretty short rest in between.  You'll want to almost pace this as a 16 minute amrap as opposed to two 8 min ones.

 

The weight should be on the lighter side so that most of your reps can be unbroken.  

 

Good luck team!
