Iron Tigger's Top Picks

This week I was fortunate enough to finally, finally make it to see Vic Zachary's gym in Houston! 

A little background, I "met" Vic at the 2009 Regional Qualifiers at GSX Crossfit in Ft Worth, Tx.  I say met, because I was in my own little private hell that weekend and wasn't paying a whole lot of attention to anyone unless they were right in front of me.  Which Vic was, when he finished in the top five and earned himself a spot in the 2009 Games!  I ran into Vic at the Games while I was introducting Nutritionize's AJ Mirwani to anyone and everyone I knew!  Vic was an amazingly beautiful person and very generous with his time and made an impression on me.  Of course he is cute as hell too, which always catches a girl's attention!

Ever since then I have been meaning to get to visit his Box!  So this week it finally happened!  And oh my gosh!!  This man is brilliant, and amazing and in addition to being an incredible athlete he has got a business accumen you rarely see outside of Harvard MBA's!! 

He just upgraded his box, that is, he outgrew his old box and moved to a bigger space in April of this year.  He currently has 5 coaches who work at Bayou City, an Olympic coach, a yoga coach, a degreed nutritionist and his dad is teaching Master's classes!  All the coaches I spoke with were friendly encouraging and incredibly knowlegeable! 

If you are visiting Houston, or live in Houston and are on the fence about which box in Houston to visit.  Do yourself a favor and get to BCCF!!!

The WOD was:

Front Squat 3-3-3-3-3
45-65-85-95-100*

*PR

Then

AMRAP 5 Min:

21 KB Swings 25#
11 knee to floor lunges
3 rounds
1 Min Rest

21 Situps
11 Wall Ball 8#
2 Rounds
1 Min Rest

21 Air Squats
11 Pass Thru's on Parallettes
2 Rounds

The shoulder/neck was bothering me so I had to do American KB swings, and the light weight wall ball.  But it was a good workout and I was so very proud of my front squat PR!
