SPARTAN PERFORMANCE CROSSFIT SUFFOLK
Four rounds for time of:
Run 400 meters
95 pound Thruster, 15 reps
Troy finished The 9-11 Throwdown, as prescribed, in 33:00! As for the onlookers,one young lady was fascinated, one completely disinterested and the guys ranged from mildly amused to hysterical!
Thanks to all who came out and yesterday and made the 9-11 Throwdown successful! We can't think of a better way to remember The 9-11 Fallen than by getting together with good people, working out hard and sharing a meal!
The Cult Of Physicality "Working with Gym Jones involves completing excruciating tasks. They use some basic machines — rowers, Airdyne stationary bikes — but mostly rely on free weights, kettle bells and low-tech equipment like weighted sleds. The Jones Crawl involves three rounds of dead-lifting 115 percent of your body weight 10 times and then jumping on and off a box 25 times as fast as you can. “Recovery” at the end of a workout might involve a 30-minute run and an ice bath. But not at the gym; it has only one shower, which is for “emergencies,” Ms. Twight said."—Brooks Barnes, NY Times
If the above sounds familiar it's because Gym Jones owner Mark Twight is a former CrossFitter.—George
