“Because y’all asked for it we make it happen; stepped up our game .. who’s got this with their partner 🤔? Love this man and love that he can do this.” —Bethany Shadburne crossfitgamesPosted by The CrossFit Games on Friday, March 30, 2018
If you're looking for partner fitness goals, look no further than this viral video, which gained traction on the CrossFit Games Facebook page. Simply put, it's a human bodyweight — literally — version of a "clean and jerk," one of CrossFit's most popular lifting moves. But while most people watching, sharing, and commenting on the video are focussed on the guy who is doing the lifting, we can't pull our eyes away from the woman being lifted!
Don't get us wrong — the guy's form is incredible, and squatting while holding a muscular, adult woman directly above your own head clearly isn't an easy feat. But the woman being lifted has an equally tough job, maintaining a perfectly straight form while being lifted, moved, and used as a human barbell; it's like doing a side plank but taken up 100 notches. And throughout the whole video, she maintains a huge smile on her face . . . which, we'll admit, isn't always our first instinct while sweating our way through planks.
