Join an all-star cast on a classic CrossFit road trip as Dave Castro, Sevan Matossian and Rob Orlando embark on a tour of California. But this trip isn’t for traditional sightseeing. The sights along this journey are barbells and top competitors as the group moves north one workout at a time.
In Part 4, the workout is underway at CrossFit Inferno. Three rounds of “a bunch of 135-lb. snatches and 40-inch box jumps” are just the appetizer for a class full of athletes including Orlando, Castro, Dave Lipson, David Millar and Bill Grundler. After a short rest, it’s on to sprinting and power cleans every minute and a half for 6 rounds. Find out who dominates the high box jump.
According to Orlando, he really “woke up in those last two workouts,” completely changing his mindset from “survive the next three or four days to demolish the next three or four days.”
Tired, but not quite completely exhausted, the crew parties on the beach with CrossFitter and swimmer Erin Phenix, who won gold in the women’s 4 x 100 freestyle relay at the 2000 Summer Olympics. Learn more about her Olympic experience and what CrossFit has helped her achieve.
After another van ride and more “Facebooking” the next day, the group meets up with John Hackleman, founder of CrossPit, for “The Orlando,” a workout right up the alley for the strongman from the East Coast.
