This weekend several of our athletes competed in the 3rd annual "Clash of the Titans". Here's the low down...
The first event, titled "The Crab", proved to be slightly more difficult to handle then expected. The girls were up first taking on a gauntlet of craziness. Sarah, Rose and Niki attacked the WOD full speed. This was both Rose' and Sarah's individual competition, however you couldnt tell by the way they performed.
Next up was the guys, demonstrating aggressive Crab walk technique. Wes, Andy and Matt all finished 2nd in their heats posting some of the top times of the day. Some notable accomplishments were Wes performing all 30 Toes to Bar unbroken and Matt posting the 4th fastest time overall for this event.
Next was a test of strength and endurance, the athletes were required to find their 3RM Clean and Jerk. Sarah and Wes were both able to set new PR's by lifting their previous 1RM three times! Following the Clean and Jerk Andy and Wes put on a pull up show. The athletes had 4 minutes to perform as many pull ups as possible, the catch was -- if they dropped off the bar they had to complete 30 double unders before getting back on the bar. In this event Andy placed 2nd overall and Wes right behind him at 3rd with 71 and 72 pull ups respectively.
A special thanks to Aaron who made the drive out to Ventura to witness the craziness! We also appreciate all the kind messages via text and Facebook showing your support.
