Above: The opening afternoon of the CrossFit Games 2010.
Elyse is gearing up for what I like to call a whirlwind of fun! Literally! This year the Games will be bigger and better than ever. We will see some new faces and some familiar faces this year. The blend of athletes that will join from around the world in this three-day competition is already excitement in itself. All in all, the road to the fittest on earth ends here at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. Only one male and one female athlete will be crowned CrossFit Games Champion! Stay tuned!
"Helen" is a classic CrossFit Benchmark Workout of the Day. It combines elements of running, weightlifting, and gymnastics into one short, but sweet workout. We encouraged our members to strive for a 8-10 minute timeframe and to limit themselves under 15 minutes. Due to the shorter repetition scheme and short run, you want to keep moving save your breath and heart are going a hundred miles an hour! Congratulations goes out to all those athletes that sped through this today Rx! Enjoy this "Helen" clip from "old school" CrossFit Games 2007 Men's Champion James "OPT" Fitzgerald, sub-7!!!
