Day 2 Recap: Central East Regional
A brief recap along with the announcement of the final workout.
Day two kicked off with the "Complex" workout with the barbell complex and muscle-ups. Graham Holmberg pulled off the best time by 6 seconds barely edging out the CrossFit legend Jeff Tincher.
This event proved to be a very difficult barrier to pass during the women's heats, only fourteen of the women completed the workout as prescribed. Christy Phillips took the first place spot by over a minute with Becky Conzelman and Lisa Shiu not far behind.
The rings came down to ready for the trail run with much of it up a steady grade only to be followed by steeply pitched hill. Each competitor had to pick up a sand bag and carry it up the hill then to the last 800m for the sprint to finish. John Steger smoked the run, coming in nearly two minutes ahead of the pack. Christy Phillips came out of the woods first to pull the first place finish. This run was a beast, should be something for many to remember.
The masters final competition went off without a hitch, Jay Thomas' time was good enough to put him in the lead. Mike Lyons is in the running as well, he competed in the sectionals at the Arnold.
The Deadlift event found Benjamin Scott pulling a massive 575lbs off the ground in front of a roaring crowd. He was followed by Thomas Hooton at 560lbs. Kelly McIntosh lifted 365lbs with Gretchen Kittlebarger's lift at 325 as the closest second.
