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 5, the crew starts the day with John Hackleman, founder of CrossPit, a unique blending of CrossFit with Hackleman’s mixed-martial-arts and fitness training program. Their workout is dubbed “The Orlando” and consists of a 500-lb. wheelbarrow walk, 100 double-unders, 100 sledgehammer swings and a “D-ball mile.” Dave Millar of CrossFit Marina and Bill Grundler of CrossFit Inferno join Orlando and Dave Lipson for this grueling challenge at Hackleman’s home.
Next up: The Cage, where the group spars with Hackleman’s crew. According to Lipson, “I don’t think I’ve ever thrown a punch, but I’ve been hit.” Violence is definitely on the menu today.
Off to a bruising start to the day, they move on to lunch and discuss shared box-jump strategy. Then, it’s a long haul to CrossFit Salinas Valley. Apparently the day has only just begun .
