Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

I have. It's not hard if you just do a little grade-school math before you start...which I doubt they did. The math I'm talking about it: figure how much data you need to handle at what rate, then...

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

The #1 they better get right is people able to post their scores. If that fails it will be chaos.

I think the problem is the CF HQ still acts like it just a bunch of guys making it up as they go...

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Games web page a bit jacked?

I looked around and didn't see much discussion on this. Is it just me? Seem like everywhere I navigate there is something odd or broken. For example, when I clicked on...

I see you are a "lets find a workaround" kind of guy...a true problem solver. This solution does indeed solve the "talking" part of the "talking heads" problem and fast forwarding past them will help...

Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

My thoughts exactly... I don't watch the videos for talking heads, I watch to see some competitors compete.

Re: 2012 Opens vs. Regionals Athletes

I think the key to testing people on over-all fitness is to have events that are unlike anything they've trained with. Challenge the competitors with a large body of events that demonstrate strength,...

Re: 2012 Opens vs. Regionals Athletes

It's clear that Games are structured to test for the top athletes able to perform typical crossfit exercises. They are not structured to find "The Fittest on Earth". If they were structured to find...

Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

That seems like a o.k. compromise. They must want some representation from each region even if the people have no chance. It does bump some people out of the competition that actually do have a...

Re: Let's go Metric!
