Run 200m
3 front squats

Bad Ass Women

Shirtless women in short shorts objectified by their sport – or – badass MoFos  with a “suns out guns out mentality”, a contractile potential greater than most men twice their sizes, and a determination that makes any woman want to pick up a barbell and put some heavy shit over head.

The women of the CrossFit Games are straight up phenomenal.  They combine grace and fire and turn in jaw dropping performances year in year out.  Check out the video posted above from last year’s Clean and Jerk/ Rope Climb workout.

    Oh man, I love me some Annies (T and S), but I’m looking forward to seeing how Lindsay Valenzuela and Elisabeth Akinwale do this year. I developed an instant crossfit girlcrush on Lindsay after watching her performance in 12.2, and I’ve become a big fan of Elisabeth Akinwale’s blog. Bring on the Games! Can’t wait to watch all these amazing women in action again this year!
