Logan Aldridge Scores PR on Clean & Jerk a Month Before the CrossFit Games

The Bacon Beatdown put head-to-head Logan Aldridge and Josue Maldonado, two adaptive athletes who qualified for the CrossFit Games this year.

Logan Aldridge lifted his heaviest load in a clean and jerk during The Bacon Beatdown this month. This time he lifted 225 pounds (102.1 kilos), 25 pounds over his previous personal record set in 2019. Aldridge is one of five adaptive athletes who will be competing in the Men Upper Extremity division this year at the CrossFit Games.

For the first time in history, The Bacon Beatdown has included adaptive divisions in its competition after partnering up with Wheel WOD – a nonprofit organisation dedicated to providing competitive adaptive fitness to coaches and athletes.

Logan Aldridge, one of the World’s Fittest Adaptive Athlete (Upper Extremity), famously appears in a handful of photos of him lifting heavy weights above his head. During the Bacon Beatdown it was no different.
