Children's drown prevention is an initiative of CrossFit Kids.
"A Trainer Trains and Doesn't Do Anything Else" with Greg Glassman, free CrossFit Journal video [wmv] [mov] [HD mov]
Snatch and clean and jerk throwdown from the CrossFit Tour Big Sky Event. Rich Froning's 290kg total would qualify him for the 2013 USAW National Championships in the 94kg weight class had these lifts been at a sanctioned event - video [wmv] [mov] [HD mov]

Watch the kids at 2:17, hilarious.
That Rich Froning/Dan Bailey video is awesome.
Snatch and clean and jerk AND CLEAN THRUSTER... LOL - throwdown video was AWESOME!!!
Anybody got a WOD for today?
That is good clean fun . Kudos to all participants. Wish I could have been there to stand in the same circle as Rich, Dan and Rob. 300+ pound clean. WOW. PR 's around the group. Great energy, great motivation . Thank you!
My new gym has a Crossfit room, but I can't find them on the affiliate list. They have a name and are advertising CrossFit. How can I find out if it is a legitimate CrossFit affiliate or if they are just using the CrossFit brand to get more money? Shouldn't they be under "affiliate" for the state and city?
Great video. I can't imagine anyone ever beating Rich. He is that good. Damn.
Rich Froning Jr. blows my mind. I know he has the ability to workout all day and only focus on that lifestyle, but even then...where is the limit?
I'd like to see any of the weightlifters in the Olympics doing these same weights come into this world and do sprints, hand-stand pushups, box jumps and burpees at the level Rich can do BOTH.
This video is good for CrossFit, it shows the power athlete is just as much a part of the programming as is the endurance athlete, the gymnast or the one who can sprint and jump highest.
Also, I like how Fred described this as good clean fun. All the competitors are cheering each other on, nobody is flopping to try and get an unfair advantage, there's no fighting or disrespect.
What more can you ask for? Is this as pure as sport gets?
I'm proud of this community, proud of that video, proud of those local competitors who stepped up in a big spot to take on the challenge.
This was good for the mind, body and soul, for sure.
Rich Froning is incredible!!!
Awsome video. Rich and Dan are insane, but Rob Orlando is my idol. Love watching that dude lift.
Can somebody please explain the anthos thing to me? Ive heard a lot about it, I just dont understand who they are try to buy from. If Coach is not selling than how could they be buying a piece?
Yeah, sick video of them PRs. Coach B's energy was sky high too!!
And the clown on the back of that UNBUYABLE shirt is the baddest thing out right now, THATS the stuff we need in the CF Store.
Watched video of Coach G after I posted...nice job with the shirt LifeAsRx!!! Why is the UNBUYABLE shirt UNBUYABLE?
"Anthos...Douche-Bag partner"...only words to describe it :)
Great photo! But it should have been included with the other athletes doing "Tully."
Don't usually post, but I enjoyed the letter on the main page this morning. Many thanks to our guys and gals overseas (and at home) fighting the good fight and staying fit with CrossFit.
Thank god today is a rest day. My shoulders are SO sore.
Where's my comments? What'd I say this time?
tap tap..is this thing on?
This video is one of the best I've seen on this site. I love watching those guys and it gets me fired up!
I was talked into visiting my first box while out of town on business by a friend. I've been doing Crossfit for some time out of my garage off of the Main Site. Today I found out what I've been missing...it's completely different. Crossfit in the box is a community and truly a team sport. It blew me away as to the intensity, bonding and knowledge found there. Big thanks to Caleb and Crossfit KTown in Knoxville for letting us hang with the 6 am crew. Awesome start to my day and opened my eyes to what CF is supposed to be.
That kid looks like a total badass.
Wow, that video got me fired up. :D
Anyone else notice the lady behind Dan and Rich who was double-fisting brews? I think I am going to do that from now on for heavy days.
The guys in the Olympics doing these same weights? You need to realize that Rich's total is 15kg below the WR total in the 56kg class, and 128kg below the WR total in his own weight class.
Excellent point. Rich is a freak. That kind of endurance and diversity of skill and he still has remarkable explosive power and technique. The man is truly gifted and shows clear signs of countless hours of drills, training, and hard work. It's extremely impressive, even among a field of elite athletes he stands out. But, to compare him to an Olympian weightlifter you're either uninformed on the Olympic standars or you're knowingly comparing him to 150 lb women. Olympians Rich's size out-lift him by 100 lbs on each lift.
anyone else notice the videos taking way longer to play over the last couple of months? The way the videos play on my home comp and work comp changed, they now want to download wmv files instead of just streaming.
Just watching the snatch/c&j video made me tired! Those guys are insane! Definitely have a new goal now: "Fittest Man on Earth" haha
No rest today, perhaps tomorrow...

Made up WOD 120818-Sat
Scaled OH Barbell Lunge to 95#
K2E as RX'd
So Rich Froning does not wear olympic weightlifting shoes. Why should I?
Because you're not Rich Froning?
@fargingbastige - weight should be 190 - not 109... that would be some drastic weight loss.
Sorry, but Rich wouldn't have qualified. The jerk for 355 had a clear elbow bend, which wouldn't have gotten two whites. Good stuff, nonetheless.
