At the weekend we travelled to CrossFit Clitheroe to attend Rob Orlando’s CrossFit Strongman certification. The day covered classic strongman movements, flipping tyres, correct lifting of Atlas stones, keg lifts, log lifting technique, farmers walks and yoke carries. The strongman cert illustrates how to apply this sport into CrossFit and how to scale it appropriately. I think of all the certs we’ve done this was the most fun but also the most physically demanding. A big thanks also to Tony and Joanne for hosting this at their box.

Lynne is a different paced workout, the only benchmark that is untimed, named originally after one of the co-founders of the first CrossFit affiliate outside of Santa Cruz, CrossFit Seattle. Ideally to perform this benchmark as it is prescribed by CrossFit.com is done with a bodyweight benchpress.
