Are you consistently blown away by Rich Froning’s performances at the CrossFit Games?

Do you wonder how fit you would be if you could train all day everyday?

Rich shares his thoughts about the upcoming 2013 CrossFit Games which is only days away.

You’ll learn why the ability to train “whenever you want” is only part of the equation to becoming an elite athlete.

He's also cohost and resident potty mouth on Barbell Shrugged, a weekly podcast devoted to Crossfit, strength, fitness and all things brash. His experience is drawn from over twenty-years spent training for and competing in American Football, Powerlifting, a bit of strongman and a dash of mixed martial arts. Also, it's possible that he's had one too many cups of coffee. A caffeine fever is a hell of a thing, you know?
