Tuesday Workout: Power Clean, 12-9-6

An important value of CrossFit is its ability to increase your work capacity, and with some sport-specific training it can be a potent combination.  With just a few months of dedicated strongman training, Natalie competed and WON her division in her first ever strongwoman competition this past weekend! Congrats, Natalie! Joey also crushed it, and completed every event. Emma and Dominique competed in the Open division, and Dominique finished third and got an invitation to Nationals.  Great work by everyone! We’re proud of you all!
