Bio

Rick Jeffries, known to his boxmates as "OG" (for Old Guy") enters his third Open larger, stronger, and perhaps slower than he was in 2014. The summer and fall 0f 2014 saw OG struggle with an Achilles tendon injury brought on by ill-advised sprints ("Look at you," his physical therapist would later say, "You're not exactly built to run"). Worse still, last year's Open, filled with stupid human tricks, left OG dispirited as a general-purpose CrossFitter, but drove him to cement his identity as one of his gym's standout plowhorses, lifting (and now, rowing!) near the top of the whiteboard while continuing to post metcon times measured in presidential administrations. Since the last Open, OG has posted PRs in deadlift, bench press, strict press, split jerk, clean and jerk, clean, and power snatch. For this, he thanks his class coaches, Tony Schuster, Justin Sides and Andrew Failla, and especially his long-suffering personal coach, Kyle O'Neil. It's not clear to OG why he is spending another $20 to not lift heavy for five weeks ("We're programming for the Open," his coaches who average more than 100 pounds less than he will say). It is even farther from clear what good toes-to-bar (the stupidest of human tricks) will do you when you're trapped under a rock or an upended filing cabinet. Nonetheless, OG looks forward to plodding his way through the Scaled Division with the most positive, energetic, good-humored and good-looking athlete corps in the world at Fit Farm, and to grunting up some big iron as soon as it's all over. Buhhhh!
