Having done Crossfit for about a year, I was approached by the gang at Crossfit Ignite to join the Crossfit Games Open team this year. I was apprehensive about it because there are still certain movements that I cannot do as prescribed (handstand push-ups, muscle-ups, and heavy overhead work). Others I am pretty good at and can kick in the competitive engine from rowing to drive them pretty hard. So I figured, why not?
It’s been a mixed bag but fun to be part of a team with a wide range of abilities. I don’t ever expect to compete at the Games as that is not my focus, however it’s great to see some of the amazing work others can do. It will be interesting to see if they include any running or rowing in the competition workouts with 2 more weeks to go.
