Did you see this repeat coming? Only a few movements were left to be used and every year since 2012 there has been a repeat workout, repeating 16.4 just made sense.
This workout was an especially good one to repeat. It provided great chance to see how much each person’s hard work has paid off since last year.
Crossfit K Block athlete Shali Enright said it perfectly, “I like the open workouts because it gives me a good idea where I’ve improved, and what I still need to work on and that’s especially with the repeats.”
Shakas and Snatches joined Crossfit K Block for this week’s Friday Night Lights where athletes saw progress since last year’s week four workout. We asked a few athletes how they did compared to last year as well as how they felt about their score this year.
Bianca Myers said last year she did not even finish last year.
Alma Leal said she was happy to see this repeat.
We asked a few athletes how they felt the workout was for them. Norman Carter said during the 55 wallballs, the sheer amount seems like a distant nightmare. “During the wallballs, I kept thinking, ‘How many more?!’”
Myers wished she were a bit taller. “It was a mental struggle because I can feel myself starting to think negatively and would have to quickly snap out of it and continue to push through them.”
Leal said she just tried to power through them. “Once I got tired about halfway through, I was thinking, ‘Don’t rest too long between sets, get to the handstand pushups!’”
Even less movements are left; seems like its down to double unders and thrusters. Maybe Castro will bring back the dumbbells. Is there something else you think Castro will throw in for the last workout?

There are still two more chances to see us out and about. This Friday, the Shakas and Snatches team will be at Arkaios Crossfit for the last Open workout. Saturday, we are headed to Maui for the Doc Yogi Meet at Aloha Kihei Crossfit.
Don’t forget that the following weekend, April 1st, is Terrible Twos at Alakai Crossfit! We could still use your help judging. You can sign up with the link here or below! If you can’t judge, don’t be afraid to come out and watch teams of two go head to head!
