Team SuperFit Raleigh marked our first trip to the Tar Heel state. Hosted by Crossfit Invoke, athletes competed in a two-man team contest, coming from as far away as Georgia and Roanoke, VA. Team SuperFit Raleigh proved to be an extremely successful event with over 160 competitors and roughly 200 spectators in attendance. Crossfit Sua Sponte showed they are a gym to be reckoned with as they claimed several spots in the top 5 as well as two first place finishes.
The action started with an ascending ladder of power cleans and wall balls. Event 2, aptly named “something for the little guys” was a grueling 10 minute AMRAP of double unders, burpees, and pistol squats. Coming into this event in particular, we thought teams would go after a nice steady pace but just the opposite unfolded with teams coming out of the gate sprinting and never slowing the pace! Event 3 was a team couplet with a 21-15-9 rep scheme of deadlifts and shoulder-to-overhead. This one was a dead (no pun intended) sprint with a handful of teams completing the workout in less than 3 minutes!
Athletes in each division battled it out through a grueling 12 minute capped Chipper.
80 DB Snatch (50/35)
60 Box Jumps (24” rx/ 20” scaled)
40 Front Squats (135/95 rx) (115/65 scaled)
20 Muscle Ups (rx) – 20 Ring Pullups (scaled)
Teams flew through the first four movements with the muscle ups proving to be the great equalizer. In both the MM(rx) and MF (rx) the winning team in the workout (and the winning team overall) came from behind to win by one rep, proving once again that every rep counts!
