We took the fractional plates again and they were a hit, here they are on a 471# Deadlift attempt :-) Get a set from Iron Woody, they are so worth it!

CrossFit Total in CT
After putting our clocks back last night it was a not too early start to get down to the Power Barn in Cheshire, Connecticut for a 9am start to take part in the CrossFit Total (CFT).
To explain, the CrossFit Total is the sum of the best of three attempts at the squat, the press, and the deadlift, the three most effective lifts in existence for developing and testing functional strength. So says Rip!
Larry at the Power Barn http://crossfitpowerbarn.blogspot.com/ invited anyone from the surrounding Crossfit affiliates to come down and attempt the CFT. Donna and I headed south with Trish, Jason and the girls.
There were 6 ladies and 7 men competing. Larry, Lis from http://www.crossfitwatertown.com/ and I were the judges, coaches and plate changers.
Final results were, the girls had fun hanging out in yet another gym, everyone had a good time lifting some heavy weights and we all enjoyed the company of fellow crossfitters. Oh and placing wise Donna got 2nd and Trish 3rd. Donna could have taken it out and with a little work on trusting her squat she will get there. Jason was 4th. Check out the video.
