A group of Olympic lifting badasses and PRing fools

Competitors at last weekend’s CrossFit Roots’ Olympic Lifting Competition

Saturday July 13, 2013 will now forever be known as "PR Saturday".

CrossFit Roots hosted an Olympic Lifting competition that several Verve athletes participated in. Dan Watson, Cecily Watson, Chris Slaughter, Courtney Nightengale, Edie Hulings, Jamie Izzo, and James Baustch made the trek to the land of the Buffs and Boulder-ites to put their Olympic lifting skills to the test. Not only did they pass the test but they blew it out of the water, no one walked away without a PR on their lifts. Based on the Sinclair Total, which takes into account bodyweight, Edie placed 1st, Cecily 2nd, Slaughter 3rd, and James 4th. Overall everyone had an amazing finish, click here to see the Men's results, click here to see the women's results.

The results of this meet highlight the hard work and diligence these athletes have put towards working on their Olympic lifting. They took the time to work on their weaknesses with the result being amazing gains in the two most technically demanding lifts. You too can work on mastering the snatch and  the clean & jerk, Olympic lifting classes are Wednesdays and Fridays at 5:30 am and 5 pm. CrossFit Roots will be hosting additional Olympic lifting meets, we will keep you posted. Start your training now, sign up for the next meet and put your hard work to the test. 

What's the moral of the story? Congratulations to our Verve athletes!! And go get your snatch and clean & jerk on!! (I know that sounded weird but whatevs, you get the point)

Heads up everyone,
