The CrossFit Austin 2010 1st Quarter Challenge

The Mean, Lean, and Clean Challenge

We start 2010 with a new goal, a new challenge, and a new competition: Meaner, Leaner, and Cleaner… what exactly does that mean?

1. We want you to be strong, because strong people are awesome
2. We want you to look great in that swimsuit when the sun comes back out
3. We want you to eat foods that don’t destroy your insides

Bottom line, we want CFA members to track their successes, and be rewarded even more for their hard work and commitment.

The Prize:

Each participant will put $20 in the pot to participate in the Challenge. The Male and Female that have best percentage strength gains and best body composition changes win the entire pot!

The Rules:

Challenge #1: “Mean” aka Get Stronger!
Strong people are harder to kill than weak people, and more useful in general.
-Mark Rippetoe

- Retest February 27th, and March 1st, and 2nd
- The Male and Female with the best percentage gains will receive

I’m at a distinct disadvantage because I already look like an athlete as yall would know if you have seen Will Ferrell in Semi-Pro but it’s only $20 so I’ll give it a go.
