http://www.legendarycompetitor.com/events/diamond-of-the-tough-masters-event

This morning a few of us went to root and cheer on our coach and our friend Paul in a workout competition.

This was the Diamond of the Tough and it was held in Monrovia at Crossfit Academy.  Here are some highlights:

This was a ground to overhead aka Snatch ladder.  2 reps and moving up as far as you can go to the end which was 200lbs.

Paul in action!!

Paul got to 155lbs very good, but he wanted and thought he would make it to 185lbs.  Still a great first heat!

Here comes coach Brandon!!
