Coming as a virtual unknown, Ricky Frausto became a serious contender in Aromas last year, finishing 6th. He has been training hard this year after the Rocky Mountain Regional. He has returned to CrossFit Omaha and some serious workouts in preparation for the 2009 CrossFit Games.
Sevan and Carey filmed Ricky trying out a CrossFit Football WOD known as "Tillman". The hero workout in Pat Tillman's honor consists of seven rounds for time of:
7 Deadlifts (315#)
1 Full Gasser
45 second rest between rounds.
Ricky weighs 150lbs, but is able to push through all seven brutal rounds. At the end of the workout, he talks about his mindset and how tough the WOD really was.
