It’s the news rival CrossFit athletes didn’t want to hear heading into the 2013 CrossFit Open: Reigning Games Champion Rich Froning just got even stronger!
At a Valentines Day Olympic Lifting competition held at Rich’s box, CrossFit Mayhem, over the weekend, the ‘Fittest Man on Earth’ broke two new PRs.
First, Froning broke his Clean & Jerk record, by lifting a whopping 370 pounds. That’s a 15 pound improvement on his last PR, which he broke at a CrossFit Throwdown in Montana last year.
Then, he smashed his Snatch PR by lifting 300 pounds for the first time ever!
To give you an idea how much of an improvement that is, during the ‘Snatch Ladder’ at the 2012 Regionals, Froning snatched 275 pounds, and still came second overall!
