Over the weekend one of my LIFT girls, Taylor, competed in a Houston Crossfit competition to represent TCS and LIFT. This was her first ever RX competition as an individual. I was pleased to see that the competition had workouts that utilized heavy sleds and stones. The stone weight for the RX women was 115lbs, scaled was 95. This was the first I have heard of any Crossfit box using this heavy of a stone weight.
Taylor fought and worked her way up to take second place! So proud and happy for this girl!
I watched every second of this years Crossfit games. It was awesome to see so many strength/strongman movements utilized to find the fittest male and female on earth, including the teams. I hope this pushes other boxes as this one in Houston to include more strongman moves. They are fun, entertaining, and take pure grit to get through. I love watching and seeing people fight to the finish with every muscle they have.
All TCS athletes work with sleds, stones, tires, farmers bars, yokes, trap bars, barbells, rings, and dumbbells. We are confident that our athletes will be comfortable with any movement competition can throw at them. Strongman and underground strength moves/equipment are not the most technical ones. It takes 5-8 minutes to walk someone through these moves and let them go. They are fun, easy to learn, and very rewarding.
If you are missing strength and odd objets in your routine or training program, contact us and drop in to try it!
So proud of you Taylor! Can't wait for the next one.
