My 2014 CrossFit Open Experience

Hey all, go check out my full article and all of my CrossFit Open video links over at http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/?page=article_ed_008 Read up on how the CrossFit Open went for me. This year, I was aiming at making it to Regionals. That however did not happen. I did use this year as another learning experience and right now, I am working on my weaknesses, which are primarily in the strength and next level gymnastics departments. With a 435 lb deadlift, a 355 lb full depth back squat, a 200 lb snatch, and 40 unbroken pull-ups, I still have a long way to go to get to the top of the CrossFit athlete heap. Thanks for following along everyone. Keep pushing forward and redefine who you choose to be in this world!


CrossFit Open 14.2 Video

Thanks again everyone!


2014 Reebok CrossFit Open so Far, Week 2, and 14.1 video.

Hey all, I just wanted to send out a quick update. It is currently the second week of the Worldwide Reebok CrossFit Open. Last I checked, I was sitting in 113th place (in the Northern California Region) out of  nearly 6,000 male competitors. I grabbed a screenshot when I was in 106th place! Only the top 45 men in each Region (17 Regions Worldwide) make it to the next stage of competition, but either way, I am having fun at GrassRoots CrossFit as the only Vegan Coach there, and here is the video of me performing 14.1. The 14.2 video will be my next post. Go to http://games.crossfit.com/ for a description of the workouts. Thanks for following guys! I’m excited to hear how everyone else does in the Open!
