    So stupid. I mean they could have done it in real boats to make it more interesting.

    They have a criterium where they race actual bikes not stationary ones so it’s not like they have to solely use exercise equipment.

    I thought the same.  I'm sure they've done some sort of sprint triathlon type events in the past.

    I think with yesterday's 4 events, the one preceding the marathon row by just a couple of hours being 1RM for squat + strict press+ deadlift in a very restricted time window, CF has at last surrendered any pretence at these competitors being natty.

    I started watching The Redeemed and the Dominant last night. Although crossfit has never been my thing, I can see the appealability of it. All the challenges are varied and it looks quite fun actually, albeit in a painful way.
     
    I might give it try in the future, but for now, strength is my goal.

     
    1RM's @ BW 90kg:
    Squat - 170kg / Bench - 120kg / Deadlift - 210kg / Strict OHP - 77.5kg
