JeffTThrusters.jpgIn 2008 Jeff Tincher of Crossfit Fairfax secured the 5th spot overall, automatically seeding him for this year and bypassing the regional qualifiers. In 2009, he ended Day 1 in 33rd position, which gave him Sunday off. Not too shabby for a 40 year old.

With the 2010 Games still on the distant horizon, Jeff has already begun to dose his practice. "I'm up to two a day programming," says Jeff. "I'm trying to work various metabolic pathways."

Proficiency across different energy pathways is a key concept of CrossFit. Jeff is directly attempting to highlight his anaerobic capacity in this WOD. "Right now I'm gonna try to tap out my glycolitic pathway... as much as I can in two minutes."

The WOD? "I'm gonna try and get as many squat clean into thrusters as I can at 185 pounds, which is 5 pounds over bodyweight." Jeff did the heavy Grace in the 08 Games in just over 5 minutes, so his frame of reference is sound.

"I'm shootin for twelve, if I can get twelve that'll be good, if I get 15 I'll be very very happy."

Being in the 40 year young group this is just really great work. I think he could probably do 225 without a problem very strong power endurance from Jeff. I don't think younger guys could do what he did in this video.
