Jul 29 WOD: Baby Nancy

The 2013 CrossFit Games is in the books and Rich Froning was crowned the fittest man on earth for the third time, while Sam Briggs earned the right to be called the fittest woman on earth. The weekend was a blur of seemingly impossible workouts. One of them involved what was called an iditarod, which the athletes harnessed themselves to and dragged across the field. I'm not sure how much it weighs but I seem to recall hearing the commentators say that it's around 250 lbs. It's almost unreal what these athletes are asked to do, but they still do it, and do it well!

A. Barbell gymnastics

Snatch complex EMOM x 10 (touch and go)

1 power snatch
2 snatch balance
1 squat snatch

B. Metcon: Baby Nancy

3 RFT (12 minute cap)

400m run
15 overhead squats (95/65)

I used only 45 lbs for the snatch complex. Your score for the complex is the total weight you carried for all the rounds you successfully completed. I failed one round. And I wasn't able to finish all 3 rounds of the metcon within the time cap. Another DNF.

My score: 405 (snatch complex); 2 + 400m run
