SAM BRIGGS

Sam Briggs – Thank you CrossFit Games for pushing me far beyond what I thought was possible … I only pb’d my snatch on Monday then went on to hit it not once, not twice, not three but four times and was so close to that fifth!!! ??‍♀️??? I know this won’t be a winning score but I’m absolutely over the moon with it!!!

ALEXIS JOHNSON HITS HER PR 5 TIMES IN CROSSFIT OPEN WORKOUT 17.3!

The best strategy for 17.3- play your own game, get after it with confidence, and then celebrate! I may not have the best score, but I hit my PR 5 times! And this is 20# above my final weight at regionals last year!

 

Maximum effort. Intensity. Community. This is what the Open is all about. Team M6’s @mf_mathlete went HAM on 17.3 and it’s why we ❤️ her. Hitting your PR 5x in a workout is no joke! . #m6open #mission6
