CFVB represented at the Life as RX CrossFit Throwdown this weekend. Marco got 3rd in the Men's division and Rachel and I got 2nd and 3rd, respectively. This was Neil first CrossFit competition and he and Rob killed it, too!

The WODs were:
#1 – As many reps as possible in 10 minutes – snatch 135/95
#2 – AMRAP in 10 minutes : 250 m row, max jerks 135/95. Your score is the number of jerks you got
#3 – 3 rounds of a heavy KB swing, bear crawl, burpee, sprint, thruster, sprint, burpee, bear crawl…while wearing a weighted vest 40/20.

    Vero has a great club and a great community. Unfortunately, myself and the little Siberian would not get along due to some past issues I will not get into.
    I don’t want to break a great groups momentum. I’ll try out the Sebastian club.
