MikeA few things worth mentioning that I witnessed tonight.  Above Mike B who just turned 50 not long ago.  He weighs in at around 170 – and I watched him Back Squat 285 for 2 reps with ease.  Mike B has been with us for about 7 months (I believe) and his fitness level has gone thru the roof.  Great Job!

Lisa

Second – Lisa W who has been with us for about 5 or 6 months who runs about 110 pounds back squatted a PR (personal record) 155 pounds.  Last time she tried it she had a hard time doing 135 pounds for 1 rep.  Regardless of what some critics say about CrossFit Training – It will not only put you in the best Cardio Shape of your life – You will increase your Strength and Power along with the other 10 general skills.
