Libby DiBiase from CrossFit Omaha came out of nowhere last year and took sixth place at the 2008 CrossFit Games. For last year's Thruster/Pullup workout, she finished in 8:12.

Sevan and Carey take us to Omaha where Libby has been training hard to improve and get stronger. Once again, she takes on Fran, and just like last years games, she does Chest to Bar pullups. This time she clocks in at 5:30.

Nice!

That dog is clearly a CrossFit dog - when Libby dropped the weight - the dog didn't even flinch!

Good luck this weekend!

Hahaha, I love the end "a little booze last night". Always makes the workouts just that much more fun!

That was a crazy sick video and the dog's unwillingness to move made it even better. Great job and good luck at the games.

Well done Libby! I agree with Heather~your thrusters moved like a knife sliding through a stick of butter!

Looking forward to meeting you in Aromas.

I did notice that tat. Very nice work (both the workout AND the tat!) Everyone struggles ... many great messages in this video. Thanks for posting it.
