Athlete Profile: Justin

By Sean | In Athlete Profiles | on October 6, 2010

Drank the Kool-Aid: August 2010
Favorite WODs: Annie and Helen
Favorite Movement: Double Unders, Clean & Jerk, and Snatch
Least Fave Movement: Box Jumps & Pullups
Best CrossFit Accomplishment: Being able to do strict pullups again, dragging himself out of bed to be a consistent 6:30AMer, and pushing past his hand ripping during “Helen”, his second Intrepid WOD
PRs: Clean & Jerk-175#, Snatch-135#, Bench Press-305#, Deadlift-400# (pictured above)
CrossFit Goals:Bump up his C&J to 275 and his Snatch to 225# by his next birthday, drop some weight, considering running next year’s LA marathon, do 25 consecutive pullups, improve his diet after this weekend’s Oktoberfest, try a sprint triathlon this coming year

Justin (a.k.a Jake of the morning class, a.k.a. the Samoan Sensation, a.k.a. The Rock) has been full throttle since he walked in the doors at Intrepid.  Justin doesn’t really have much of a competitive background in sports saying his only active interests before CrossFit were skateboarding and Muay Thai, but seeing him attack the workout every morning might have you thinking otherwise.  Justin works at Mixed Martial Arts fight shop where he sneaks in kettlebell snatch practice on their 53# KB while no one is watching.  Justin served 4 years in the Air Force before returning to SoCal to work on his college education.  Justin was stoked to get into the gym in time for last month’s challenge and really shined in the Olympic lifts, so we’ll see what he has in store this month as we take on a 5K run.  Justin has a lot of potential and should have no problem meeting his goals by his next birthday.  Happy birthday Justin!  Keep up the great work.  Oh, and you can’t tell me you don’t see the resemblance…


WOD 10.06.10

Overhead Squat 3×3

    Happy Birthday Justin! What an awesome picture!

    I hope you didn’t select this WOD, she is one of my biggest enemies. I may have to take back my birthday wishes…

    Happy Birthday Justin! Hopefully we’ll meet in person one day. But that may only happen if you go to a night class, cuz I’m not making 6:30 am.

    Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. I hope everyone enjoyed Jackie as much as i didn’t. haha. i thought i was doing just fine on the rowing machine until i started to feel fatigued, looked up and realized that i had 730 meters left. I definitely love the support i get from all you guys.

    mike: i had susie cake cup cakes and pf changs on saturday, dim sum on sunday, tiramisu cake on monday, a hula burger from islands with cheese fries last night, cheesecake at the midnight countdown going into today, then more cheesecake for breakfast after Jackie this morning. AND i still have ramen and oktoberfest this weekend. hahaha. NOW DO YOU SMELL WHAT THE ROCK IS COOKIN?

    the next task is to drop this “jake in the morning” name and get good enough to where you guys call jake “justin in the evening”. haha. j/k.
