Action, Drama and Fitness – Full Recap of California Crossfit Regionals 2017

All the action from The Californian Regionals.

The most famous victim is Christian Lucero, looks like a pec tear again here.

 

As disheartening as the result of the weekend was, there is so much to be excited about. Just to update everyone, I was dealing with a pec strain coming into regionals, and didn’t know how much I would able to do once I saw the announcement of the workouts. Regardless I trained my ass off in the hopes of being healthy enough to compete. Unfortunately during Event 5 I felt the strain flaring up and was not able to continue the workout, which disqualified me from finishing the rest of the weekend. Thankfully after getting a full evaluation, it is looking like it is nothing too serious and will be a short recovery. I’m excited for the direction that the sport is going and this was by far my favorite regional so far. To everyone that is complaining about the programming and injuries, this is an incredibly physically demanding sport and in any competition there are going to be injuries. We are pushing the limits of human performance and operating at the highest level, so of course there are always going to be injuries. That is just a part of the game! I can’t thank everyone enough for all the support and kind words. This train isn’t slowing down, I’m only getting better. #crossfitgames #crossfit #crossfitphotojournal
