“Team CrossFit CrownTown” official “Tough Mudders” before the race on Sunday. The group shown here from left to right, WW, Nick D., Nate C., Melissa J., Calvin B. and Sean L. (CFSC) all endured over 10 miles in Snow Valley, CA at 8,000 feet elevation, over 20 obstacles including the Electroshock Therapy (10,000 volts). Roughly 3 hours of an extremely mentally challenging race. Great job to all for finishing – WW

*this WOD has a 35 minute time cap
**I did this WOD at CrossFit Mean Streets with a 30 pound wall ball (equivalent to women using a 20 pound wall ball) and I did the rope climbs to the ceiling (I believe it’s 18′ – ours is about 20′-22′). My time was 20:38 and it was a new gym record. If you think you can finish in the time cap and still use the heavier ball and climb to the ceiling, then go for it!
