Over the last few years, a greater number of implements that hail from the strongman world have shown up in CrossFit gyms as new “toys”. As pictured above, Sean was recently hard at work mixing concrete to make our first Atlas stones. We also have some other strongman related items that you may have used before, such as the yoke and the tractor tires out front. Strongman can best be summed up as the lifting or moving of “odd objects”.
Due to the great amount of interest you have expressed in trying out these toys, we have arranged to host the Strongman Tour here at Intrepid on Saturday, January 11th at 9am. The clinic will last about 2 1/2 hours and will go over the following:
Each segment will begin with a discussion on technique and demo of these items, and then attendees will then get a chance to play with them. Since no CrossFit related event would be complete without a WOD of some sort, there will be a 5-7 minute workout at the end of the clinic, which I can safely assume will be testing out some of your newfound skills.
Now hopefully the women of the gym didn’t completely tune out this post, thinking it’s “not for them”. You might be surprised to learn that the Strongman Tour Coordinator is female. Check out this short video on how she has found incorporating Strongman training has helped improve her physique and performance within CrossFit:
