CrossFit Games 2020 Round Up

Last week, BLK BOX Athlete, Emma McQuaid competed in the CrossFit Games 2020 and we are delighted to say she finished up as 19th fittest woman in the World! Competing against an extremely high calibre of athletes, Emma did herself and everyone in BLK BOX proud.

The CrossFit games, originally due to be held in California, were held in each athlete’s home country, so it was a great chance for Emma to have her family and friends there to support her and also to show off her impressive home gym and outdoor rig set up.

The competition itself consisted of a 7 sets of exercises over two days.

Day 1:

Friendly Fran: 3 rounds: 21 thrusters, 21 chest-to-bar pull ups

1RM Front Squat: Establish a 1 rep max front squat
