|He says. “Since joining the gym, I can sincerely say that on most days of the week the gym is the highlight of my day.” As far as knowing he was in the right place, he continues: “I’ve always burped a lot when I exercise and I was concerned that it might be an issue, but my first week there I heard Laci Knight and Kris Clever rip big ones, so I felt right at home.”
Some one of his favorite memories at CFTY is when he PR’d his deadlift and Dot caught it on video, and seeing Ace and Lily in it to win it on Hungry Hungry Hippos warm up day!
Richard typically dominates the heavy lifting movements, and when I asked him what a CF WOD named Richard would look like, he said, “I’ve always been a fan of workouts that resemble heavy grunt work, so if I was going to make up a WOD to be named after me it would have to be along those lines.” And proceeded to imagine a terrifying, potentially vomit inducing WOD including 7 rounds of sled pushes, adding sandbag carries, KB farmers carries, and OH Plate carries… where all the equipment eventually gets added to and removed from the sled.
Dear Richard, please don’t make us do that.
We’ll look to you for inspiration on those heavy lifting days!
