More than 80 fitness and Crossfit enthusiasts met yesterday in the Berlin eWerk to present together with the world’s best CrossFit athletes and NIKE the new training shoe Metcon 4. Together with singer-and-influencer Jennifer Weist, we were exclusively allowed to report on Instagram from the 45-minute workout mi of the Berlin CrossFit Community.
12 min Burpees – please?
Everyone started with a warm-up, more specifically with the “Bring Sally Up Challenge”, which was led by Fittest Men on Earth Matthew Fraser.
Next then in AMRAP style – 4 stations – 12 minutes each. The bangers were in any case the 12min burpees – 20 are nice, 40 still possible, but after more than 60 repetitions and 5 minutes of burpees at a stretch, the fun stops and the respect for the world’s best CrossFit athletes grows from repetition to repetition.
Stability and dynamics
Loyal companion of all athletes would be in addition to the stars of the event, the new Metcon 4 shoes by NIKE. I admit to be a true Metcon fan from generation to generation, but the 4 Series exceeded all my expectations. Even firmer stand, more comfortable lacing and, in particular for the litter, very solid sole.
My personal goal and part of the training philosophy is clearly always getting to know something new and applying it to Project 100. So I will take some fresh exercises with me to Jena and try out with my team JenJavelin. I’m sure that one or the other equipment order in the coming days is pending. I was too enthusiastic about the 25kg and 75kg SlamBall guided by Josh Bridges.
