What WOD/class made you decide to become a CrossFitter?
Grace (30 clean and jerks for time) that one really caught my attention 🙂

How often do you train now ?
4-6 times a week.

Do you follow any speciel programming or are you (just) doing the WODs at your box?
I try to fit heavy lifting in to my schedule every time before testing my skills with the WODs.

Which one of your CrossFit related accomplishments are you most proud off so far?
Completing the Ultra CrossFit Marathon in Butcher’s Lab must be my proudest accomplishment.

What is your next goal(s)?
The human flag, the iron cross and other crazy moves in the rings.

The most difficult thing in CrossFit ?
Over Head Squats must be one of the most challenging disciplines.

How do you keep the motivation high?
There is no need for that, I dream about CrossFit 🙂

Any good advice for new CrossFitters?
By socializing with the other CrossFitters in your gym, you will have a lot more fun while training, and at the same time get many good advices and improving your technique. It’s important to be open for constructive criticism in order to get better.

Any questions for the community ? (this is your chance to ask experienced CrossFitters anything!)
I do always ask if I have a question, so nothing at the moment.

Do you plan to attend any CrossFit competitions?
The “FIT AS FUC*K CROSSFIT CHALLENGE” the 25th of Sep. in Køge

Super fedt at I har fået etableret den blok så godt 🙂

Rising CrossFit Stars: Casper Kold Lund

Name: Casper Kold Lund

Age: 22

Occupation/job: Piccolo

Background in sports: Several years of biceps curls and bench press + the occasional soccer game

CrossFitting since: September 2009

Affiliate: CrossFit Copenhagen

What WOD/class made you decide to become a CrossFitter?

The intro at CrossFit Copenhagen (10 min. AMRAP 5 burpees, 10 swings, 15 Airsquats)! The following day was spent in awe, wondering how 10 minutes of work could be that devastating!

How often do you train now?

6 times a week, with the occasional spontaneous rest day when I feel like it.

Do you follow any special programming or are you (just) doing the WODs at your box?

Currently, I am doing the daily WODs at CrossFit Copenhagen.

Which one of your CrossFit related accomplishments are you most proud off so far?

My muscle ups!

What are your next goal(s)?

Increasing all of my lifts and getting more familiar with them. Plus, gaining mass!

The most difficult thing in CrossFit?

Choosing a single WOD to do when there are so many great ones out there. And, staying away from the gym on rest days…

How do you keep the motivation high?

Seeing those pretty faces on the 7:00 o’clock morning team! Try to make it to the gym at the same hour every day, that way you have a better chance to get to know the people you train with. Get social and cheer on each other!

Any good advice for new CrossFitters?

Think about what and when you eat, everything starts here. At least, bring something you can eat right after your workout; it speeds up your recovery compared to waiting for the next big meal. I don’t want to get too specific on this subject, a lot of guys much smarter than me wrote a lot of stuff about it.

Any questions for the community? (this is your chance to ask experienced CrossFitters anything!)

How do you attend a social get-together without ending up spilling your heart out about crossfit to everyone and everything?!

Do you plan to attend any CrossFit competitions?

Fit as Fu*k CrossFit Challenge 25 sept. @ CTC, and I can’t wait!
