First Firefighter Challenge

I finished my basic training as a volunteer firefighter at the Berliner Feuerwehr in July this year and after my fulltime firefighter comrades have pushed me to compete in the third Berlin Firefighter Challenge, i did. But didnt know until the week before the competition.

Unfortunately it was the first time in action with the breathing apparatus after basic training. So all depended on my fitness.

Because we have no affiliate yet i have been doing only metcons CF style or WOD that does not require much equipment for the past half year.

In the end it was enough to leave half of the participants behind me. I look forward to the next Challenge.

Thank you Crossfit!

There is a video on facebook for those of you interested. Link is WFS:

Re: First Firefighter Challenge

Awesome job. Every now and agian i'll put on my SCBA and do push ups, air squats, lung, and then walk the treadmill at a steep incline or climb the stair mill till my bottle is spent. You may want to give it a try. I use it to see how good my air management is, plus it keeps me used to wearing and breathing the SCBA.

Keep it up.
