Affiliate owner and second-fittest man on the planet Tommy Hackenbruck, along with CrossFit competition newcomer Ben Crook, joined Justin on Episode 104 of CrossFit Radio, webcast live at 6 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2010.
Justin began the show by asking former elite and college athletes to contact him about appearing on future shows to talk about making the transition to CrossFit.
7:22 Ben Crook trains at Ute CrossFit with Tommy Hackenbruck and is preparing for the sectional competition coming up next month. He talked about finding CrossFit and what it’s like to train every day with one of the top Games performers. Ute CrossFit recently held a contest to prep athletes for sectional competition, and Ben shared a little about that experience before detailing his diet, his training and how he will tweak things heading into the upcoming competition.
27:35 Tommy Hackenbruck placed second at the 2009 CrossFit Games and is the owner of Ute CrossFit. As one of the top five finishers from last year, he won’t have to compete in sectionals and regionals, and he believes that gives him certain advantages. Tommy discussed his diet and the things he has been trying to improve in his training last year. As a competitor and trainer, Tommy is able to offer special advice to his athletes as they prepare for sectional events, and the recent competition at CrossFit Ute gave Hackenbruck an interesting perspective on programming CrossFit events.
