CrossFit Dragon Fire – CrossFit

16.2 rundown… Alysha killed the scaled version getting into the 3rd round and cleaning her max after all that work, even though Kelsey did not sign up this year for the open she did this one and also blew it out of the water making it into the 115# cleans-wow (we will make sure to not underestimate her mad skills), Kyra make it all the way into the 3rd along with Curt, Joel, and Michele. Ryan took a 14th place finish on this wod in the whole nw region by getting into the 4th round! Marah got in the final round of this wod and I have truly never seen her go as dark as she had to on this wod…. she did amazing.

16.1 recap…who knew we would get to do walking oh lunges in the open!
This was a grueling 20 min wod and challenged you all in diff ways! Antonio fought through those OH lunges with all he had while the ctb’s were easy, Curt had his best place finish (161st in whole nw) on this wod with 9 rounds and change, Mike took about half the steps as everyone else due to his long stride-haha, we talked Cindy through the lunges by yelling left right and had to almost force her to do her burps but she proved herself again by finishing 136th in the world in her age group for that wod. I do have to say I was happy with the mobility that ALL our athletes displayed on these overhead lunges and the way that you all attacked the wod!
Little did we all know that we would be doing those darn bar facing burps again in the last wod.

Kyra did more bar mu’s then she has ever done before for a total of 15! Cindy finished 138th in the world in her age division for that wod by killing her pull-ups! Steve got his bar-mu’s back and surprised himself. Klynton went to town on this wod getting 6 full rounds and some change in the scaled version. You all did so great and I was so happy to see everyone cheering each other on.

Move gently on this exercise. Do not force or become aggressive – this is a stretch that must be done gently.
