Cupid's Revenge Crossfit Competition

Michael competed in a Crossfit competition on Saturday at Crossfit OKC. They had a Valentine's "couples" competition, teams had to consist of one male and one female. Because of my rather large condition, I could not compete and I was so sad, it looked like so much fun! But, one of the sweet ladies from our gym, Mary, teamed up with Michael for the competition. The first workout of the day consisted of finding your max lift on the "clean" (basically bringing the weight from floor to shoulder) in 8 minutes and the doing as many pullups as possible without coming off the bar. Michael cleaned 235 lb., short of his goal and previous max lift, but he ended up doing 38 pullups, more then he thought he would get, so overall he was happy with the performance. The second workout of the day was a 20 minute workout trying to get as many rounds as possible in that time. One round consisted of a 250 meter row, 15 18 inch box jumps, and 15 sit ups. The couples went one after another to get the most rounds. Michael and Mary again did great get 9+ rounds. The third and final workout was a timed workout, which consisted of trying to finish as a team 50 ground to overhead lifts (95 lb. for men and 53 lb. for women), 50 russian kettlebell swings (1.5 pood for men, 1 pood for women), 50 burpess, 50 squats, 50 pushups, and 100 jump ropes. They were allowed to partition the work anyway as long as they finished everything in order. Michael and Mary finished in 9:12 and ended up getting 12th in competition. Especially awesome since Mary has not been doing Crossfit for very long at all, but she is obviously in great shape! Our good friends and the owners of the gym we go to, Chris and Erica, ended up in 2nd place and we had several other couples from Crossfit 66 who represented so great! Here are a ton of photos of the competition, they are in reverse order because seriously blogger is so hard to put photos in order on! Enjoy!
