A demo workout from the Frogman Challenge
We’re going to try and spotlight upcoming competitions on the blog here from time to time here on the blog, for those of you who are looking to try that first CF competition.
Before going any further, though, please make sure that all of you CFOers, and I mean all of you, keep Saturday October 6 open. We’re going to being having a really fun event go down at CFO on that day, and the more people who are at CFO, the better. We’ll post more on this in the next week or so.
On to today’s topic, though…
The Frogman Challenge is a CF competition that combines elements of swimming with more traditional CF gym-based activities (bodyweight exercises, barbell exercises, etc.). This is a really cool concept and it also gives you a small taste of what CF Games competitors have to go through when they compete (each of the past two CF Games competitions have included a swimming element).
The Frogman Challenge is taking place at Gunderson High School in San Jose on September 1.
The workouts themselves will be briefed and detailed the day of the competition, but you can see what some of the workouts are already by going to the Frogman Challenge website.
And here’s a brief description of the event from its organizers:
The CrossFit Inland Empire Frogman Challenge is a competition for CrossFit athletes who would like to take their traditional training and apply it in and out of water. Our competition will add an element which hasn’t been used or seen in any other competition. Competitors anaerobic capabilities will be tested. This event promises to break new ground, challenge athletes, and definitely be a whole lot of fun!
