Week 3 is underway for the CrossFit Semifinals, and right now we’re headed to Minnesota for the Granite Games.

The day kicked off fast and furious with a thruster and handstand walk couplet that no reps or breaks ultimately determined who won the event. But when the sun went down, the lifts went up! The record for CrossFit’s barbell complex was broken when Anthony Davis put up 355 pounds and Dani Speelge tied Tia-Clair Toomey at 245 pounds.

Morning Chalk Up’s Lauren Kalil sits down with Brian Friend and Jake Marconi to talk about all of the major moments from the day as we kick off the Granite Games.
