CrossFit Games News and Media: FIRST TIMER: KRISTEN HESTAND

“I love coaching, more than competing and even winning,” she explains. “I love that ‘a-ha moment’ when people learn something new. I love seeing members do something they’ve never done before, something they thought they’d never do.”

 

Stay tuned for updates!

 

WOD 06 07 13

A. EMOM (12 min): 1 Squat Clean or 1 Power Clean into FS

B. 7 min to establish a 3RM OHS (run in two heats – racks are allowed)

C. 30 Burpee MU or Pullups for time (cap: 7 min)*

*Athletes must jump onto a pullup bar at least 1 inch higher than standing reach.  Pullup can only be completed after the athlete’s arms come into full extension.  If you don’t have pullups, substitute 30 burpees then 30 pullups.

    A. 215 Squat Clean – 10lb PA for all my Cleans – got 225 up to chest, just need to drop under…



    B. 105 OHS – it’s getting better, still awkward…
    C. 3:29 – E drove a good pace this AM…

    Good luck, Kris – don’t think you need it, though – you’re going to do awesome!

      Proper form on an overhead squat is very hard to come by.
      One of the hardest movements we do.
