We are making the assumption that no one is planning on coming in to workout on Sunday, due to the Super Bowl. If you were intending to come in, please comment on this post to let us know. Otherwise, if no one is planning on missing the game, we will be closed.
I just wanted to let you all know that there were a total of 81 pints earned in January.
Fortunately we had a new gym member added with “Dump Truck” (7 Rx) and unfortunately we memorialized lost CrossFit community members with Harper (11 Rx) and T.U.P. (15 Rx.) These three workouts accounted for 33 pints by people who Rx’d these workouts for the first time.
21 Pr’s were set in the Overhead Squat!
8 people had PR’s in the workout 300!
5 members had a PR in their max box jump height!
4 members did there first newbie shuffle!(1 PR reshuffle)
4 people had Deadlift PR’s which wasn’t even in the programming for a max! (That is scheduled for Feb.)
2 people had Double under Pr’s (two of the most hard fought PR’s I might add!)
Two members had a gymnastics PR for their first Skin the cat to muscle up
Two members set cardio PR’s in the Airdyne 30 / 30 for 20 minutes.
One member did their first Rx Filthy 50!
One member had a PR in the Back Squat breaking 300 lbs for the first time
Great Job & “Stay Thirsty” my friends!
We had 3 athletes represent Alternative Athletics at the Yellowstone CrossFit “Best of the Mountain West” competition yesterday. Drake Deigert, Deseree Reid, and Byan Grotjohn all competed in the intermediate category. They did us proud! They represented our gym with strength and determination.
Event 1 was 25-15-10 Pullups and Power cleans.
Event 2 was 6 minutes to find 2 rep maxes for both front and back squats.
Event 3 was an ascending AMRAP of clusters and bar facing burpees.
Bryan took 4th in the Men’s Intermediate division – this was his very first competition. He got huge PR’s in both of his squats, and put in a solid performance all around.
Drake took 2nd in the Men’s Intermediate division, finishing only 1 rank point behind the leader. He killed the squats, I think he took 1st or 2nd in that event. (Drake, please comment, I can’t remember exactly)
Desiree had a great day as well – even though she had to fight through some early and very bad hand tears. She took 2nd in the squats, which is even more impressive when you realize she was the smallest of the Women’s Intermediate competitors!
Make sure to congratulate all 3 of these athletes on a job well done!
