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:
Paul warming up...
Paul meets his judge and gets ready for his first heat!
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!!
easy like butter...
Walking up to 190 lbs...1 more to reach the end...200lbs!
at the 200lbs FINAL one..
GETS THE REP!!
Brandon is one of only TWO people that morning to reach the end of the ladder. YAY!!
The friends that support you!!
As of this post...Brandon was 8th over all and Paul was 21st. They had one more event to go...in fact they are probably doing it right now as I am typing this. GO GO GO!!!
Brandon got 5th overall and Paul got 25th!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
