SATURDAY – 090425



Relaxin’ before the big day….

So the first day is over. It was a long day. So much competition out here. The first WOD went great with Elisha placing 13th overall. Zach was 11th overall after the first WOD pulling 31 deadlifts in 3 minutes at 275 lbs! Chris placed 69th with a solid run and 14 Deadlifts @ 275 lbs.

The Second WOD would be a deal breaker for so many. Elisha and Zach gave amazing performances but didn’t meet the 15 minute cutoff time for the Double Under/Wall Ball/Rope Climb WOD. Chris finished first in his heat with a time of 6:01!

After the second WOD, Elisha bowed out because of shoulder issues. It just wasn’t worth potentially putting her out for months. Zach and Chris had solid showing at the 3rd WOD which was the 5 Clean and Jerk (135 lbs)/ 10 Chest to Bar Pull ups, as many rounds as possible in 8 minutes. Chris finished with 4 Rounds + 5 C&J, and 8 PUs. Zach finished with 4 Rounds + 2 C&Js.

At the end of the day, Chris is placed at 53rd, Zach at 56th, and Elisha at 37th. This first day proved to show us a lot of things that we will work on this year. It’s been an amazing learning experience so far.

The Sunday WOD was then revealed today:

Chipper WOD:

Row 1000 meters
25 Overhead Squats (135 lbs for men, 95 lbs. for women)
Run 100 meters
50 Kettlebell Swings (53 lbs. for men, 35 lbs. for women)
Run 100 meters
25 Burpees
Run 200 meters to the finish line

Should be a great day tomorrow. We’re pretty beat up but all is good! The videos are extremely large so please be patient with those being uploaded. Thank you all for your support! We couldn’t be here without you guys! We love each and everyone of you like family. Wish you could all be here to see this amazing Qualifier.
