Age is Just a Number

That was most certainly true for the Masters competitors at this year’s CrossFit Games.  Men and women, ranging in age from 45 to 73, were doing clean and jerks, handstand push-ups, muscle-ups, and burpees. 

They were inspiring to watch and are proof that true fitness is a lifelong pursuit.  Congratulations to all the Masters competitors and to everyone else that refuses to let age limit their ability to enjoy an active life.

Tuesday’s Skill

Turkish Get-up

3 on the right, 3 on the left

Perform 5 sets trying to move up in weight each time

Workout of the Day (WOD):

4 rounds, each 2:30 long, of:

Run 100 meters

10 burpees

Max wall ball shots the remainder of the time (20#/14# ball for women)

Rest 1 minute between rounds

Score is wall ball shots in each round

Fred was so close to getting the 70# kettlebell for his Turkish Get-up.  Next time, for sure.

Michael, Len, and Urbanie all getting acquainted with the Turkish Get-up.

Oh, the joys of max wall ball shots.
