Brandon Phillips and Spencer Hendell
In this post from the CrossFit Journal, top athletes from the Southeast Regional share their thoughts on the upcoming CrossFit Games Finals.
Ian Wittenber, of Again Faster, is living the CrossFit version of a Kerouac novel, driving across the country in search of the characters who will compete at the CrossFit Games.
With over 1,000 miles on the odometer, Wittenber finds himself in Georgia with Brandon Phillips and North Carolina with Spencer Hendel.
Phillips finished 30th in 2009, while Hendel cracked the Top 16, finishing 12th. Both athletes are very strong, and the 2009 experience highlighted areas they needed to work on to bolster their brawn. Phillips has been focusing on flexibility, stamina and endurance, while Hendel has been emphasizing body-weight movements.
Phillips took second place in the Southeast Regional, and Hendel was fourth. They'll renew their rivalry in less than a month when the 2010 CrossFit Games get underway at the Home Depot Center.
