The Very Best

As Los Angeles residents, we are in a very fortunate position in that we have the opportunity to attend some incredible CrossFit competitions.  This weekend, on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, at the Pomona Fairplex, is the SoCal Regional competition.

The best individual athletes and teams in southern California will be competing for a few precious spots to compete at the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games, where the best of the best will throwdown for title of being the World’s Fittest.  There will be some amazing performances this weekend as the southern California region is stacked with top CrossFitters.  I encourage everyone to try to make it out to at least one day of the competition.

Jose, enjoying the top of his heavy deadlift.

Erik was on his way to setting a deadlift personal record.  His consistency is really paying off.

And Alyssa set a PR on her deadlift with a 155# lift.  Atta way!

    Intermediate and Beginner

    Back squat

    5 – 5 – 5


    15-12-9-12-15 reps of:
    thrusters (95/63# or use Fran weight)
    toes to bar

    Beginners will substitute v-ups for toes to bar (no knee raises) and dumbbells if they cannot clean the weight

    Power Hour

    5 sets, increasing the weight each round of:

    5 dumbbell deadlifts
    5 dumbbell hang cleans
    5 dumbbell push presses
    5 dumbbell front squats

    Go as heavy as possible. Setting the weight down constitutes a failed set.
