Congratulations to CrossFit NYC’s weightlifting club, Manhattan Barbell, who just returned from the American Open Series in Valley Forge, PA last weekend. This was the first time we have competed as a team at a high level Regional Weightlifting competition. For most this was the largest stage any of them have ever stepped on and competed with lots of lifters of the same (or higher) level. It was definitely the most high pressure situation any of the lifters have faced!
