Getting ready for the Fit As Fu*k Challenge: Butcher’s Lab (DK)

Link: http://www.butcherslab.dk/

Number of participants from this affiliate: 31 (20 men, 9 women and 2 masters)

Coach and owner, Kenneth Dehn, answers the questions:

Whats your ambition for your athletes at the Fit As Fu*k Challenge?

It’s clear that CrossFit has become a true Sport, and CrossFit in Europe has developed a lot ! Since Copenhagens is “the capital” of Europe, I have huge expectations to all the athletes from Copenhagen! Whether it’s CrossFit Copenhagen, Butcher’s Lab, Captain Gym or one of the other boxes, I’m gonna chear like a mad man!

Any kind of workout/exercise that you hope for?

No, but I hope to see some more “advanced” movements than the ones we saw at the European Regionals.

Do you have any obstacles in terms of equipment in your box, that might have given your athletes a disadvantage?

We miss some high ropes for rope climbs – but we try to compensate by doing more trips up and down …

Which affiliates do you think will do best overall ?

A realistic guess would be “BootCamp Iceland” as they allways provide some killer athletes. But off course, I hope to see someone from Butcher’s Lab at the podium !

Have your athletes done any special training together in preparation for the challenge?

No!

Is that we all have a really cool day, and just chill with all the cool people who is gonna be there. And of course do as well as we possible can, not compared to other but to ourselves. If we go as hard as we can then we are the true winners of the challenge 🙂

Any kind of workout/exercise that you hope for?

Hmmm… Work capacity is king in my world!! Give us some work capacity and it will make my day 🙂 Otherwise bring it 😉 I know that this sounds a little crazy, but I really hope for something that exposes our weaknesses. If we get 5 WODs that all cater to our strongpoints – how fun would that be? 😉

Do you have any obstacles in terms of equipment in your box, that might have given your athletes a disadvantage?

No!  We are pretty happy and ready to go..!

Which affiliates do you think will do best overall ?

The one’s that have the best time there… I dont know how the spirit is in the other boxes. But I know the spirit in our box, and we are gonna have a kick ass time 🙂 regardless of the results, i wish all the best!

Have your athletes done any special training together in preparation for the challenge?

Nope, CrossFit’s speciale is not speciliasing. I think that there’s been a shift in this the last year and I see people becoming more and more sport specific. Just go as hard as you possible can in every WOD then you are Good To Go 😉
