2 CrossFit Oakdale teams competed in the Barbarian Throwdown at Barbarian Strength and Conditioning on Saturday. For those of you unfamiliar with the Medina’s (the owners of BS&C), web please watch this amazing video.
Jen and Christine and Louis and I competed in 4 tough WODs and ended the day with second place finishes. Jen and Christine actually tied for 1st after 4 WODs, viagra sale and lost to an experienced team from CrossFit Lodi in a tiebreaker.
Both teams won the 4th, price and most difficult WOD of the day – 40 deadlifts 335/205, 30 muscle ups and 20 push jerk 165/115, split it anyway you want. Jen and Christine pulled 205 (a heavy deadlift for the both of them) safely, quickly and effectively and Jen carried the muscle ups to a first place finish. Lou and I finished the deadlifts and the muscle ups, and I think we both surprised ourselves when we repped out the 165# jerks to a packed crowd. It was awesome.
Jen won the 800m run.
Christine handstand walked farther than any female there.
Lou hit a 205# 2 position Snatch as the clock timed out. The crown went nuts.
It’s been a few months since I competed, and I think we all experienced an adrenaline dump on the first WOD of the day. I will always recommend giving a competition a try, it’s amazing how a great atmosphere and strong athletes will make you push, and it’s highly…educational to find out you will respond.
4 CFO coaches threw down, and a bunch of you guys were there cheering us on. We’re just like you, learning, trying to get better everyday.
If you are interested in competing, the Valentine’s Couples Challenge is in Fresno on 2/9.
