The USA Weightlifting/CrossFit Open concludes today. Our awesome athletes Kara Funk and Melissa Hurley lifted Friday and Saturday. The live feed was not working well but you can view the archived footage at CrossFit Live Feed. You can also catch up on pics and results at USA Weightlifting. CFVP would like to thank our great coach Tracy Fober. She has been working diligently to get the girls ready. It's hard to put into words how proud we are of Kara and Melissa. This is their first time competing in a real Olympic Lifting Meet. To battle the nerves, altitude, and tough competition there took determination and guts. You are both inspirations! Have a safe trip home.

Monday Strength/Skill Work: OH Squat 4 X 8 (technique emphasis). Body Rows 4 X 10. L-sit 4 sets max time.

    Ladies you should be so proud of yourselves! You both did great. It's one more thing you can check off your bucket list. Melissa loved the monkey socks! I almost bought those!
