Josh Bridges Wins 16.4, Ties Briggs at Seven Open Victories

Josh Bridges is incredibly fit. But the multi-time CrossFit Games competitor (and 2011’s Second Fittest Man) has shocked once again with an absolutely mind-boggling 330 reps on CrossFit Open workout. While most of us were struggling to get deep into the chipper’s handstand push-ups, Bridges finished those with time to spare.

(UPDATE: There’s a lot of chatter on social media about the range of motion on Bridges’ reps. Check out the video below; do you think they’re up to standard?)

Then he went back to the deadlifts.

After he finished those, Bridges managed to get ANOTHER 55 wallballs in.

Check out the full video below from the CrossFit YouTube account, where Bridges crushes the workout under the watchful eye of Invictus coach CJ Martin.

As of the morning of March 22nd, Bridges’ score is tops among men by 15 reps over some dude named Rich Froning (who?).

This is Bridges’ seventh Open victory, putting him in a tie with 2013 CrossFit Games Champ Sam Briggs for most overall. (Watch all seven of Sam Briggs’ world-record Open performances here.)

Read the full 16.4 recap – along with victories in the other divisions, updated as validated scores and videos come in – on the Games website. And don’t forget to check out Bridges’ Instagram account for regular updates on his training, sponsors, and sweet, sweet mustache + goatee combo, seen below.
