Yeah the guys looked in great shape. But when a few of the girls came out from the water they were sporting some serious guns.

Crossfit chicks are SICK. I missed the games though. Have to see if I can catch some of it tomorrow.

Do they test the competitors for anything? I can't imagine juicing up for something as trendy and trivial as the "crossfit games".

Then again, some are all up on that kool-aid like it's going out of style (probably because it is. . .as we speak).

It appears they test everyone, though I may be wrong.

I was actually at the CrossFit Games.

There were a few females that stood out to me like Unnaturally large/ripped. But for the most part the female athletes had pretty natural figures.

I actually don't do Crossfit, but my best friend does it out in Las Vegas and the owner of his gym, Zach Forrest of Crossfit Max Effort, was competing and we were there to cheer for him. He came in 12th out of 49. He qualified by being 3rd in the Southwest division of CrossFit.

I have pics but can't post them until I get to 15 posts. LOL

I think it had a big cash prize, so dont be shocked of people on something. I mean come on, tons of powerlifters are, and there is no real money in it.

On a different note, I did watch about 45mins of it last night. I had to stop though when they were calling 180lbs a heavy clean and jerk. I realize I couldnt climb my fat butt up the rope before hand, but 180lbs isnt heavy. Maybe difficult after all the work, but that doesnt make it heavy.
