There were 5 CrossFit West athletes at the CBVA Santa Cruz Open beach volleyball tourney this last weekend. And all 5 placed in the top five. Congratulations to Selene, Aurora, Kirsten, Vero, and Susan.
CrossFit is ideally suited for beach volleyball, as it is for so many sports and physical activities. Beach volleyball players need, above all, explosive power. Remember, power is strength with the added element of speed. Power is what a causes a jump, or a strike, or a home run, or a snatch, or a double leg takedown. Explosivity demands power and power breeds explosivity. CrossFit, at its very core, focuses on the development of power.
