Executive Producer Sevan Matossian once again gives us unprecedented access to the fittest athletes on the planet, catching CrossFit Games competitors in intimate moments and vulnerable positions.

In Part 4 of five, Matossian offers a look at all the “glamor” behind the scenes—ice baths, drug tests and blood blisters—as the athletes complete Sprint Course 1 and Sprint Course 2, the Soccer Chipper, Clean and Jerk, and Triangle Couplet.

Matossian also gets rare glimpses into athletes’ personal lives. Former champion Camille Leblanc-Bazinet confides that husband Dave Lipson “every day is asking for a baby.”

Denae Brown confesses that she missed out on last year’s Games because she “was accidentally pregnant at regionals.”

“It’s because it’s CrossFit and she looks better naked,” friend and fellow competitor Whitney Gelin says with a knowing smile.

At the end of the day, rising star Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir refuses to rest on her laurels as she sits near the top of the leaderboard.

“I don’t think this counts for much,” she says. “Tomorrow afternoon, no one’s going to care where you were in the middle of Saturday. All that matters is where you’re standing after the last event on Sunday.”

Butterfly pull-ups can be fun to learn and serve a great purpose for athletes. When the time comes for newbies to practice the butterfly kip, I prefer to use a technique called “Blocking Movement” for Reverse Grip Kipping Pull-ups.
