"Overhead Strength Development"(7.16.2010)

I. The Games Are on This Weekend!!
The 2010 CrossFit Games are starting on Friday at 6:00 pm. The best CrossFitters in the world are meeting head to head to find out who is the fittest person alive. Who will win this year? Will Mikko Salo make a repeat performance and win two years in a row? Will Chris Spealler, the icon of CrossFit, finally be crowned the fittest person alive? Will Heather Keenan represent the Northeast and take home the Women’s Title? or will there be that darkhorse that comes out of nowhere and surprises everyone? The Games are being held in Los Angeles, California this year at the Home Depot Center, which is quite a step up from the Ranch in Aromas. The great thing about the games this year is you can watch it live on the internet. They will be setting up a live webcast, so for those unfortunate people like myself, who could not make to the Games this year, we can watch live on our computer. Check out the live webcast online starting at 6:00 pm on Friday Night.
