With the Reebok CrossFit Games 2013 Open currently under way, I figured it’d be a great time to highlight one of the “fittest men on Earth”. People compete in their own cities with a certain workout and scores are entered online (I’m doing it myself!). The highest scores move on to the next round until the finals that take place in LA.
Rich Froning Jr. is 25 years old and is currently featured in Men’s Health magazine in an article titled, “The World’s Fittest Man Will Kick Your Ass.” He is in the only two-time male winner of the Reebok CrossFit Games, a three-stage test of diabolically tough exercises you should not try at home. He can bench 350 pounds, squat 445, do 75 pullups in a row, and run a 5km in 20 minutes. In the article, they show some of the other CrossFit exercises that help build the incredible body that he has that include jump rope double-unders, pistol squats, handstand pushups, and more. It’s effing tough, but I myself and loving it more than any other fitness related thing I’ve ever done.
Check out some photos and video of the sexy athlete below.
Love his tattoo!
Check out those abs and his beefy chest. On the right he’s doing jump rope double-unders.
The result of all of his hard work.

So handsome and love the facial hair too.
