Inov8 Masters at War competition.

Saturday saw myself and one of our longest serving athletes Emma compete at Train Manchester. This was her first foray into competition despite training with us for over 6yrs and my first experience of a masters competition. As we expected the competition was well thought out and programmed, Train, despite only being open for 18 months is run by the team of Dominic Beardwell, Darren Freeman and Samantha Briggs, all of who are experienced CrossFitters (one of who, Samantha, won the CrossFit games this year).

The workouts
In a relay, row 250, 100 double unders, row 250.

10 barbell snatches
10 burpees
As many rounds as possible in 7 minutes, rounds divided as chosen.

Clean ladder.
Ascending weight as a single lift, 45 seconds allocated for each lift.

11 pullups
2 deadlift (120/90kg)
10 handstand pressup
As many rounds as possible in 15 minutes.

It was a great pleasure working alongside Emma as her team mate as well as trainer and I was very happy with coming 16th at the end of the day.
