James Newbury was a busy guy this past weekend.

On Friday, the four-time CrossFit Games athlete did four workouts, partially completing the quarterfinals. One of them was a repeat actually.

  • "It was the GHD workout,” said the 31-year-old Australian, referring to Workout 2 which included three rounds for time: 30 alternating single-leg squats, 30 GHD sit-ups and 10 muscle-ups. "My camera didn’t work, so I had to do it again.”

But he was just getting started: Newbury got up on Saturday, hammered out two more workouts, then drove for over an hour to Melbourne from his home gym to host a three hour CrossFit seminar. Then he went home, ate and went to bed, but he was far from done.

  • “The next day I was super sore all over my hips and core area from the GHD sit-ups,” said Newbury, who currently sits in 25th in the Oceania region. “And then I went and did my first Olympic triathlon, which was cool.”
