Monday started our 5 event week, the busiest week we’ve had to date and of course also a week with a lot of driving. We woke up bright and early Monday morning and made our way to CrossFit Bradenton for their early morning classes.
With the CrossFit Games Open starting in a few weeks, CrossFit Bradenton has been doing one old Open WOD per week and our event happened to coincide with that. The WOD for the day was last year’s 14.3.
The coaches recommended doing step-ups versus box jumps and we’re pretty sure everyone took their advice. It was definitely a leg burner!
As the deadlift reps went up, the weight did as well so we all had our extra weights set up next to the bar to keep adding weight before the next round.
CrossFit Bradenton is a Sweat Angels box which we absolutely LOVE so we reminded members to check-in on Facebook to have the box make a donation to the charity and then come see us to make an additional donation and even bigger impact.
While Sam and I are loving the Florida sunshine and 60 degree weather, we just came from some extremely cold weather and are happy to be helping get winter coats to those in need!
Thank you to our new friends at CrossFit Bradenton for the warm welcome, awesome WOD and event, and great beach suggestion!
