The First Two 2016 Regionals Workouts Were Announced & Rich Froning Already Destroyed One

May 03, 2016

After Dave Castro gave us hints about what the 2016 CrossFit Regionals workouts would be, the first two have been released. Rich Froning went ahead and sent Castro a video of him crushing event one just to remind us all how badass he is…

Even though Rich Froning isn’t competing as an individual this year, he got to work as soon as the announcements were made and destroyed the snatch ladder in just 6:09. Rich changed his own weights and looked to be going at a pretty chill pace, so we’re expecting a few guys at Regionals to keep up with or beat this time.

We would have loved to see the conversation between Rich and Dave when Rich sent over this video… Because the quality is so low on YouTube we’re going to assume Rich texted Dave the entire video. And while we’re sitting here making assumptions, he probably shot over a text message with something like, “Don’t think I don’t still have it. **Snatch Emoji **Flexing Bicep Emoji **Winky Face Emoji #Champ”

We also think this video is a cruel attempt by Rich to get millions of unsuspecting fit folks to listen to Christian soft rock. Well played, Rich…

Tommy Marquez, Pat Sherwood and Shawn Woodland put in their two cents about these two workouts…

Here was Dave Castro’s hint for Friday’s workouts at Regionals: snatch and regional Nate. Much more straight forward than his hints for the Open WODs…
