CrossFit… Goes Hollywood? Yep, it’s True! Scary…
CrossFit is getting a huge bump into prime time due to the following upcoming blockbuster movies featuring CrossFit protocols either as training methods, or actual plot elements:
“FRANK MILLER’S THE 300”
I’m not exactly sure what I think about this. While It is great to get more people to do effective workouts, I do like the “undergound” aspect of CrossFit. Paradoxically, I am annoyed with Mark Twight, the “300” trainer, who is doing straight CrossFit, and makes it seem, by omission, that he made it all up on his own.
Here are Mark’s “stats”
Clean & Jerk: 165#
Overhead Squat: 155#
Front Squat: 195#
Weighted Pull-Ups: +106#
500m Row: 1:28:2
2000m Row: 7:05
5000m row 18:51
Pretty sweet: I’m hoping to beat these times/scores within the next year (as far as Mr. Twight’s Alpine times all I have to say is: whoa.).
