CAPTION CONTEST! What’s up with Coach Will?
Nick–who seemingly has a personal camera crew following his every move during the Open WODs ;)–has been kind enough to give us his thoughts again on WOD 12.3 (we heard from him earlier about 12.2):
“When I saw Open WOD 12.3 posted on the Games site, I had two reactions…”
1. Yes! We get to do more than one exercise this time that is longer than 10 minutes.
2. $hit! It includes an overhead pressing movement.
“Anyone in the 8am class knows that my weakness is anything overhead: presses, handstand pushups, overhead squats and snatches. While practicing these modalities have lead to improved performance over the last few months, I still have a whole farm of ‘goats’ to manage.”
“The box was abuzz last Saturday, and it was really cool to have fellow athletes including Michael Williamson, Jamie Freedman, Paul Imperio (my judge and resident photog), Jason Wong, Daniel Kunitz, Michael North and others yelling at you and getting you through this pain and agony called 12.3.”
If you’d like to give your own report for the blog as to how your Open experience is going, have someone snap (at least) one pic of you and email me at ALLISON at CROSSFITNYC dot COM with your story! I’ve been asking for stories based on who I have pictures of, but I want to hear from as many folks as possible, so don’t be shy.
Thursday’s WOD is to be announced. Stay tuned for details.
