About the wod
My contention is that an athlete who can get 16+ on BOTH tests has the work capacity to qualify for The Games. BTW, Rich Froning did 20+ rounds with 205 lb" - Ben Bergeron, Owner CrossFit New England, 2014
"Macho Man" is one of CrossFit New England’s official benchmarks, first posted on their website December 6, 2012. Though CFNE names their daily WODs "for fun," this WOD is from a short list provided to us by CFNE’s Director of Operations, Eamon Coyne. This WOD was originally published July 12, 2012 with Rx weights of 165/115 lb, then later on Ben Bergeron’s “Competitors WOD” blog on January 3, 2014 with Rx weights of 185/135 lb. Bergeron has also been known to program this for his competitive athletes at 205/145 lb.
CFNE is famous for being the training ground for multiple CrossFit Games champions, under the expert eye of head coach and owner, Ben Bergeron.
