CROSSFIT NEWS – Full Demo of “Strongman’s Fear” Event from 2017 CrossFit Games

This is going to be a great event to watch!

This Event will take place on Saturday August 5th. This is a combination of pure strength, tactical precision and gymnastic skill. There are many options available to the athletes so they must choose the best order for moving the objects in order to maximise their efficiency and avoid wasting any unnecessary energy. 

STRONGMAN’S FEAR

For time:
60-ft. yoke carry + 60-ft. handstand walk
60-ft. farmers log carry + handstand walk
60-ft. sled drag
60-ft. yoke carry + 60-ft. handstand walk
60-ft. farmers log carry + handstand walk
60-ft. sled drag

*Athletes may carry the objects in any order they choose.
  M 420-lb. yoke, 170-lb. logs, 265-lb. sled
  F 300-lb. y
oke, 120-lb. logs, 220-lb. sled

Each lane will contain a yoke, 2 logs and a sled. Athletes must move all 3 items across the stadium floor, in any order. All 3 objects must be brought to the middle of the field, then moved to the end of the field. Each time the athlete moves back to retrieve a new object, they must handstand walk the 60-ft. section.

The athlete’s score is the total time it takes for them to complete the event.

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
