Lucie Hobart is 56 years old and says she has no idea what age means anymore.

“I started CrossFit when I was 52,” she says, “but here I am … four years later, so I’m 56, and I know I am the healthiest today that I have ever been in my entire life, which really blows my mind.”

Mother to James Hobart, CrossFit Games Affiliate Cup competitor and a member of CrossFit’s Level 1 Seminar Staff, Lucie says her perspective on aging has changed since she started CrossFit.

The Viking Challenge

The Viking Challenge
This challenge involves four sets of rowing, with each set doubling the distance of the previous one. You should think of each set as a mini-race, requiring a maximal, all-out, full-Viking effort to complete.

Set 1 – 125 meters
Set 2 – 250 meters
Set 3 – 500 meters
Set 4 – 1000 meters

Rest periods between sets should be equal to the amount of time it took to complete the set. So if it takes you 1:53 seconds to complete 500M in set 3, your rest period before set 4 would be 1:53 seconds. As the sprints increase in duration, so do the rest periods.
