CFTC CrossFit Open Update 3

This workout was about redemption after the lesson in humility that was 14.2. The third workout of the CrossFit Open was another simple one- a couplet of box jumps and deadlifts with increasing weight. For this week, team CFTC Blitz was closely grouped from top to bottom with scores ranging from 86 - 130. Leading the ranks for both the women and men was Heather B, back on top after rebounding from 14.2. Bill led the men with the same score as Heather B with 130 reps achieved at a slightly slower pace, followed closely by Stan (122) and the winner of our Competitor Award for week 3- Josh - with 121 reps.

Josh has been a cheerleader for CFTC Blitz the whole Open season and even though the heavier weights of this workout got up to close to 2x bodweight, Josh didn't even flinch. Unfortunately Josh isn't in the pictures of this post, but know that determination would be in every pose had he been pictured. Big plate of bacon for Josh.

Honorable mention this week goes to Kori for coming back strong after a few weeks out of town, and Devon who's still a part of the CFTC family.

With two weeks left to go in the Open, Bill ranks first in the CFTC ranks. Will he hold on? Will Heather, Stan or Josh make a push for gym bragging rights? We will see...
