Rob Thorell Talks about Training for The Crush Games
Robert Thorell (37) who is a casual CrossFitter Born in June of 1977, was born and raised in Canada. As a child he was ridiculed for being too "round" and was often referred to as Donut. As he grew older he attended FAU and was on the Colleges soccer team, when he dropped out to work for a Compact Computer Company. He competed in the Spartan Trifecta race, Mercedes-Benz Corporate run and The Ultimate Titan Challenge. He began lightly attending CrossFit to stay in shape for the races. Over the next 90 days he will be going to push his limits to determine if its possible to go from casual athlete to Crossfit competitor at the age of 37.
When it comes to his training however, his teammates and coach will tell you that he is a beast – extremely focused and taking no short-cuts. Following the exhausting training program of an amateur athlete is tough enough, however Robert manages to do it.
"I was certainly questioning 2-3 WODs a day. The first week of training felt like a month but as I am approaching the end of week two, I am starting to feel better and very excited. I used to think that going to my local BOX every other day was a commitment. Let me tell you. I couldn't have been more wrong. The need to carve out 3-4 hours of everyday between warming up, banging out the 3 programmed WODs and then taking some time to recover was even more than I anticipated. Thank goodness, I have a a great support network and some flexibility during my days." says Robert Thorell
