Ocean State Crossfit in Cranston, RI held their second annual Masters Throwdown this past weekend. All Crossfit events such as the Opens, Garage Games and local throwdowns are fun, but I really enjoy Master’s only type competitions. The WODs are programmed specifically for people in the 40+ range and aren’t just scaled versions of WODs that are part of an all ages throwdown. There tends to be an unspoken bond within the Masters division.I can’t speak for everyone over 40, but I think most older people wish that CrossFit was around 20-30 years ago during our prime physical years. Don’t get me wrong, some people, including myself, are in the best shape of their life..I just wonder what it would have been like to discover Crossfit at 27…..Regardless of your age, I strongly suggest that all Newbies enter an inhouse or local throwdown after 4-6 months of attending classes. Kudos to Steve Blais and the crew for producing a great event. By request, I have included a link below with the information on the event’s WOD programming.
I wish I could look as cool as my buddy Geoff during his Masters Throwdown WOD!
