Team CFO/Sweat Shop Competition Wrap-Up
Rikus, Michelle, Tamara, and Arnold after the 2012 Holiday Invitational
This past Sunday, three CFOers (Michelle, Tamara, and Arnold) and one CF Sweat Shop athlete (Rikus) competed in a 2-man/2-woman team competition hosted by CrossFit One World called the 2012 Holiday Invitational.
This was a team competition that was filled with a lot of heavy hitters from the CF world. There were a number of CF Games and Regional-level competitors who competed, and most of the NorCal teams who finished in the top 10 at this year's Regional competition were there. In short, there were some stacked teams.
It was a great opportunity for Team CFO to step up and compete with the best, get a sense of what we need to work on, and to get some prep work in heading into the CF Games season (the Open starts in March, just a couple months away).
Each member of the team put in strong work. Tamara PR'd her clean-and-jerk (213 lbs) and got her first ever bar muscle-up (and then followed up with several more); Michelle knocked off so many bar muscle-ups I lost count; Arnold redlined in the final workout, barely coming out alive, but showed us what grit is all about; and Rikus blasted through just about everything he did (bar muscle-ups, heavy deadlifts, overhead squats, etc.).
In the end, against some of the best CF competitors out there, Team CFO/Sweat Shop finished 10th out of 12 teams. It was a great way to finish off the year, and makes me really excited for 2013. Can't wait 'til the Open!
