Throwdown Highlights

Cross-Fit Overtorque at the Gotacha 6 Summer Throwdown in Mandeville, LA 
This last Saturday Cross-fit Overtorque sent nine competitors in three teams up to Mandeville, LA for the Summer Throwdown.  We had one RX team, and two scaled teams. It was the first competition for six of our competitors. Work was done! Congratulations to team SAR Dogs (JD, Russell, and Danny) for placing second place in the scaled division.

Here are some photo highlights of the event.

The Overtorque Camp 
It was a long day of Dub Step music and WODs, but we managed to relax a bit.

SAR Dogs Establish Dominates 
Danny, JD, and Russell, all in their first CF competition took 2nd place in the scaled division.  This was the third WOD of the day which included 90 clean and jerks, 60 snatches, and 30 OHS.

Liz Puts the Team on Her Back... Or Over Her Head. 
Liz learned how to do over head squats earlier in the week. On Saturday she used her new found skill to ensure her team completed the third WOD in the 12 minute time limit.

Salty Dogs are Contenders in the Rx
Team Salty Dogs, (Mike, Bryan, Scott) finish 12th of 59 teams in the Rx division.  Hungry for next year?

SAR Dogs in WOD 4! 
Team SAR Dogs had to complete an extra WOD consisting of the top four teams in the scaled division.  Arguably the hardest workout of the day consisting of thrusters, SDHP, rope climbs, and farmers walks.

SAR Dogs get Second Place 
Cross-Fit Overtorque's first trophy! Thanks to JD, Russell, and Danny.

Team Overtorque 
Congratulations to all of our competitors.
JD, Scott A, Liz, Scott G, Cale, Bryan, Mike, Danny, Russell

Here are some rowing technique from C2 website:

Applying Power and Relaxing the Recovery

The key to keeping your stroke rate reasonable while increasing intensity is applying good power at the beginning of the stroke (the drive) and keeping your recovery under control. During the drive, be efficient with your power by engaging your legs at the start, then swinging the back, and then following through with your arms. On the recovery, don’t rush as you slide toward the handle for your next stroke. It’s called “recovery” for a reason! Overall, your drive-recovery ratio should be 1:2. In other words, your recovery should take twice as long as your drive. Review our Technique video if needed, and be sure to check out our video on Rowing with Greater Intensity.
