Coach Whit and Joe W. taking on some partner Deadlifts during the 5th CrossFit Team Series workout
The CrossFit Team Series at CFSBK
From early September to early October, four intrepid teams of CFSBKers took on this year’s CrossFit Team Series. The Team Series tests the fitness of four-person teams (two women and two men) over the course of 8 events. Today we’re very happy to bring you some reports from the competitors. But first, here are the teams:
Forging Competent Fitness
All Good Fellows and Maybe Scott
Definitely an all-star lineup! How did it go? Your blog editor had the good fortune to be able to judge Forging Competent Fitness’s 5th workout and can tell you that it was tough! (Watching Charlie N. and Brad L. Deadlift together made it well worth it, though.) But, most importantly, we’re grateful that we can share some words from the athletes themselves. Here’s a team write-up from CFSBK Ballers by Coach Jess:
Our team had a great experience! We all pushed ourselves harder than if we were just doing it solo. We had to do the first 4 workouts all in one day over the course of 2 hours. That wasn’t ‘fun,’ but I think we still surprised ourselves with what we could do and how we could recover fairly quickly to move on to the next workout. The 2nd 4 workouts were more in our favor but they seemed way more difficult! Regardless, it was fun to get together, talk strategy, talk strengths and weaknesses, practice synchronizing, hit the workouts and then go out for dinner/drinks afterwards as a team. I would highly recommend this for any/all members next year! Find 3 other people and sign up! Team workouts are always great for giving you that extra push! And hopefully next year, we’ll have organized team series workouts… like a Friday Night Lights type of deal!
Sounds like they really made good on the “team” part! Shawn C. was kind enough to gather responses from All Good Fellows and Maybe Scott. Let’s see what they had to say:
“My overall highlight was the team atmosphere and feeling that I couldn’t let the team down, which was really inspiring. I had three PRs and did two movements that I wasn’t sure I could do at all. No way that happens without being a part of a team that was taking on challenges. Also great to get know other gym members better.” –Charles S.
“The highlights were when other members enthusiastically judged us, taking time out of their routine/day to do it. That was so nice of Joy and Stella, Andre and Kate! Then, it was so much fun to synchronize stuff. A little silly (e.g., the Deadlift Hold) but so fun at the same time. And then just getting through it was great.” –Micheline G.
Gerry M. also said that working with the team and pushing beyond what he thought he’d be able to do was a highlight, but he disagreed with Micheline on the partner Deadlifit. He was not a fan!
“Working with and getting to know better this excellent team was a highlight and their support was a big part of getting some PRs and was everything in terms of fun! I also appreciate the generosity of time and spirit provided by our judges. CrossFit Community! Thanks for everything!” –Shawn C.
Wow, thanks all! We’re looking forward to Friday Night Lights at CFSBK next year. But who’s gonna play Tim Riggins?
