James Hobart has some impressive CrossFit numbers, and he isn’t too bad at strongman movements, either. Competing at Rob Orlando’s Hybrid Winter Challenge, Hobart motored through WODs featuring clapping push-ups, stone and log presses, squats, tire flips, power cleans and more to make it to the “final mystery event.”
While the first events were a challenging but manageable intro to CrossFit mixed with strongman, the final event was designed to separate the good from the great:
Yoke walk (425 lb.)
Farmer carry (217 lb. per hand)
Load 2 atlas stones and 1 193-lb. keg (over a racked barbell)
5 deadlifts (315-lb. fat bar)
3 deadlifts (365-lb. fat bar)
Sled drag (135 lb.)
Hobart and Orlando will see if their training can get them back to the CrossFit Games during this weekend’s Northeast Regional in Albany, N.Y.
