I had the wonderful opportunity this week to guest coach at ASD CrossFit, Pordenone, Italy. 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!
I programmed for them a 20:00 AMRAP
20 Wall Balls (16#/20#)
20 Box Jump overs (20″/24″)
10 Clean & Jerks (85#/105#)
Not only were their movements on point, but they WOW’d me with their endurance!
The determination, drive, and discipline of the athletes are absolutely inspiring! They were such a welcoming group of people, that even with our language barrier, put us at complete ease. I recommend this Crossfit box to anyone traveling through or a local athlete searching for a box..give this one a try!
To show their gratitude, they invited me 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.
