The second event in The Active Man Turf Games ’17 saw the 6 teams of 5 guys competing in a Strength & Conditioning style workout at Rosslyn Park Rugby Club in Roehampton, London. In what was a spectacular night – clear skies, 14 degrees and on one of only 3 official artificial grass rugby fields in the UK – it was shaping up to be a great battle.
The workout was programmed by Alex Marks from @on.your.marks fitness and was a brutal Strength & Conditioning style session. It was a great test of individuals and teams strength, skill and stamina with teams from the first Turf Games event which was a strongman style workout, not fairing as strongly in this event.
We were honoured to have partnered with the worlds leading compression brand, 2XU (@2xueurope) for this event who kitted the guys out in compression leggings and shorts, combined with their TEAM AM tee in black/gold – they were looking like true athletes. We also had on board the team from Neat Nutrition who had a protein shake bar to refuel post workout, Fresh Fitness Food fed with guys with their amazing meals and Naked Juices and Nocco were on hand for hydration and energy.
After an hour or so after slogging it out, David Arnot’s team, Team Scrambled Legs, came out on top. Some big movers on the leader board has made the 3rd and final event at CrossFit Shapesmiths on 25/11 an epic battle to the end. The workout will start at 1.20pm with spectators welcome. Is going to be a great atmosphere as Lee Phillips and his team try and cling on to a 1 point lead till the end.
