Edgar Shows His Grit

Not much to say about this one other than hats-off to Edgar. The video pretty much speaks for itself; Edgar isn’t gonna win any style points with this muscle-up but you gotta admire his determination.

Post props to Edgar for showing the kind of grit and desire one sometimes needs to summon in order to be a part of the CFO muscle-up club!

    thanks guys. all my life there were two things that i’ve always wanted to do. get a muscle up and make people laugh. well, thanks to mike, crossfit, and the the 6AM crew i can now cross those two things off the list… much respect to all of you who make it look sooo easy. one day…
