I had the wonderful opportunity this week to guest coach at ASD CrossFit, Pordenone, Italy with another coach from our gym. This Box has been open for roughly eight months and is full of amazing athletes. With most being relatively new to CrossFit, I was unsure what to expect.
For their skill/strength training, we programmed a Snatch Progression to a 1RM followed with an EMOM. These athletes are coached by an amazing Olympic Lifting coach and it shows!! Their pulls and progressions were extremely precise and their mobility was exceptional!
We programmed for them a 20:00 AMRAP
20 Wall Balls (16#/20#)
20 Box Jump overs (20″/24″)
10 Clean & Jerks (85#/105#)
10 Burpees
Not only were their movements on point, but they WOW’d us with their endurance!!
The determination, drive and discipline of the athletes is absolutely inspiring!! A very welcoming group of people, that even with our language barrier, put us at complete ease:) I recommend to anyone traveling through or a local athlete searching for a Box..give this one a try!!!
To show their gratitude, they invited us out to dinner which was an absolute blast- along with the best Tiramisu I have ever tasted;)
Having this experience just justifies yet again to me the comradery among CrossFit and its athletes.
