STRONGMAN’S FEAR

For time:

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

*Athletes may carry the objects in any order they choose.
  M 500-lb. yoke, 200-lb. logs, 400-lb. sled
  F 340-lb. yoke, 120-lb. logs, 310-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.

Time cap: 10 minutes

THE RESULTS

Katrin finished in first, displaying her grit and strength with the farmer’s walk and and excellent technique during the handstand walks.

Tennil Reed-Beuerlein also looked strong and unstoppable during the event. Annie Thorisdottir 

Chyna Cho explained tactics for the event:

“Smooth is fast,” she says. “If you start going too frantically at these weights, you can really get out of control.” She also thinks an athlete’s competence in the handstand walk should determine the order in which she move these implements. “Some of the objects definitely effect the handstand more than others.” That’s probably why so many women are choosing to tackle the farmer’s carry first. It’s hard to exaggerate how heavy these loads are. 

Follow the @crossfitphotojournal ・・・ Saturday, 10:30 AM. @chynacho And @emilybridgers wait for their heat to take the field for Strongman's Fear. @brookewellss won the first heat, making the handstand walks look as easy as she did the sled drag. This event favors a larger athlete, so I ask chyna what her gameplan is. "Smooth is fast," she says. "If you start going too frantically at these weights, you can really get out of control." She also thinks an athlete's competence in the handstand walk should determine the order in which she move these implements. "Some of the objects definitely effect the handstand more than others." That's probably why so many women are choosing to tackle the farmer's carry first. It's hard to exaggerate how heavy these loads are. #crossfitphotojournal #CrossFit #CrossFitGames"

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.
