Today’s questions come from Clark Niemeyer-Thomas, and they are all essentially in regards to the Winter WODFest CrossFit Competition (hosted by our friends at CrossFit Eminence) that will be held at the end of January.

At one point during my answers, I hesitate because I was unable to confidently identify a particular movie. When you watch my video, most of you will likely remember the scene I was referring to. In the movie Back to School, Rodney Dangerfield performs a dive. That dive… the Triple Lindy. Trust me, it’ll make more sense after you watch my video below.

Clark, let me know if you have any other questions. Everyone else, what else have you got for Ask Smashby?

Happy Wednesday, everyone.

Hey friends! I just wanted record a quick little video to talk about a few local events we have coming up here in Denver. CrossFit Competitions are going to be popping up all over the place, and hopefully my blog can start to serve as a resource to help you guys keep track of when and where they are happening!

You may be wondering which events are right for you to enter and which ones are better to go and watch, and I’ll try to help out in any way I can.

Check out the video below, and let me know if you find this helpful at all!
