Saturday 9.21.13

This weekend we had 3 teams competing at BBVA Compass Stadium in the Htown Throwdown. The morning began a little rainy, but once competition got underway, it was nice and cool, and we had a fantastic view of the Dynamo field.  

We started off with WOD 1 of an ascending ladder of pull ups and squat snatches as a 5 minute AMRAP. It was a quick sprint, so strategy played an integral role here. The second WOD was 30 burpees, then with the remainder of 10 minutes, one partner attempted a 1 rep max snatch and the other a 1 rep max clean and jerk. We had some strong lifts here, including a snatch PR from Angie and Alex, and a clean and jerk PR for me! The last WOD was a 7 min AMRAP of 21 deadlifts, 15 wall balls and 9 ring dips. Each of our teams got over 5 rounds in this workout, which was considered a very solid performance compared to the rest of the field. At the end of the afternoon, Angie and I finished in 6th place, Phil and Dan in 31st, and Alex and Ben in 45th. We had such an awesome group of supporters show up (as you can see in the picture below:)) - I'm sure we had one of the biggest fan bases there! Thank you guys!
