The punishment continues…

 

crossfit, crossfit games, crossfit central, rudy nielsen, crossfit regionalsCoach Rudy is pushing us to and past our physical and mental barriers, one day at a time. Like I said last week, we are adapting slowly, but surely, and our recovery is becoming more and more rapid. The weights continue to go up, and almost all of our training sessions are lasting between 2 – 3.5 hours.

 

Normally I would not recommend that length of training session for anyone, but I believe it is necessary to adapt to the extremely high level of volume that will be required come the Games.

 

Look over the workouts below (this week’s training) and let us know what you think!
