Catch Team U.S.A. in its second training workout with Games Director Dave Castro at Valley CrossFit in Van Nuys, Calif.
The second prep WOD is done as a three-woman team. For time, the trio must complete a total of 16 muscle-ups, 50 thrusters at 85 lb., 300 double-unders, 50 thrusters at 85 lb. and 16 muscle-ups.
Team U.S.A.’s Kristan Clever, Julie Foucher and Becca Voigt square off against a CrossFit Invictus squad that includes Camille Leblanc-Bazinet Lipson and Jenny Labaw. Team U.S.A. finishes first with a time of 7:45, while the Invictus crew finishes shortly afterward at 8 minutes flat.
“What we do in London is going to be really traditional,” Castro tells Team U.S.A. “What I mean by that is ’cause it’s gonna be on … the equivalent of ESPN for Europe, we’re not gonna do a lot of shit that’s not traditional workouts.”
He adds with a laugh: “No backflips.”
