The mini series/documentary style videos that HQ shot of the 2009 CrossFit Games might be my favorite of all. I haven’t gone back and watched all of them in a while, so perhaps they don’t quite hold up to the test of time – kinda like ET, Predator, or Jaws. But it...

A few people were really close, but once again no winner. They did it again, reincarnating a workout from prior years. In this case, we’re looking at 14.2 again. Overhead squats and chest to bar pull-ups, and the better you are, the longer you’re going to go. You can check out...
