It took a 40-plus year old father of five to rattle the cages and stand up to another Procter family push Friday night.

Jason Pinter watched his son, Ethan Pinter, battle for breath in the first heat. If the load was heavy for Ethan, it would be heavy for everyone, the thinking went. Nevertheless, in the absence of his dominant brother and sister-in-law, Clay Procter probably gave the performance of his adult life to land one of the highest scores in a loud deadlift ladder workout:

  • 10 deadlifts at 135/95# (men/women)
  • 15 box jumps
  • 15 deadlifts at 185/135
  • 15 box jumps
  • 20 deadlifts at 225/155
  • 15 box jumps
  • 25 deadlifts at 275/185
  • 15 box jumps
  • 30 deadlifts at 315/205

(“As Many Reps As Possible” in 8 minutes, athlete must create/change their own barbell.)

Jason then watched Ashley Fosberg perform the fastest first four minutes of the workout and rearrange the female leader board by finishing 2nd, to Hidi Cramer. Fosberg seemed to “walk on air” compared to other athletes; she is the undisputed fastest jumper at CFB.

Cleared from knee surgery just months ago, Jason put his body to the test in the 5th and last heat against Austin Procter and Jeff Heinz (another huge lifter). Maybe the crowd overlooked Jason, having not seen him really compete in months, but 4 minutes into his workout he was on pace to get to the 315# deadlift plateau untouched by past victors.

With 30 seconds left, Jason deadlifted 315# three times, dropped the weight, and then was congratulated by Clay Procter who was within steps of Jason, cheering for him, the entire time.

Weeks 4 and 5 will doubtlessly offer similar leaderboard surprises; there have been five different victors (male and female) in 3 workouts and approximately ten different individuals to “podium.”

See you Friday at 7:30 p.m.!

    Really? Another Crossfit ‘article’? That must make a half dozen in a month. This proves the adage that a Crossfit workout takes an hour because you spend 30 minutes working out and 30 minutes talking about it. We get it, Crossfit is great. Is the Burien news cycle so lacking that profiles of members of a local gym makes the cut these days? At the very least tag these as sponsored posts.
