Re: Crossfit Open 2016

It makes sense that they booted the whole team. If you look through the other women on their open team roster, it looks like none of their scores would have been good enough to replace hers. ...

Re: Crossfit Open 2016

Looks like EZ got no-repped when his legs accidentally closed on the rope right after he jumped up, you can see him looking at his judge as he dropped down to start over. Such a shame.

Don't know...

Re: Making your own 'stall bar' in a rig

I was taking our gym's gymnastics class led by our coach who was a former Div1 gymnast. She was saying something about the stall bars and I was picturing what she wanted and thought, well, we have 5...

Re: Standard Dumbell weights

At regionals in 2013?, the 100s chipper workout had 100 alternating DB snatches at 70/50 lbs. We've used that as the prescribed snatch weight at the gym I coach at but the reps are usually more like...

Re: Rx Pistols will always be impossible =(

Watched your last vid where you said you thought your ankle flexibility was sufficient. I think it is pretty deficient from what you need for a pistol. It's also evident when you're showing your...

Re: Crossfit Open 2016

The effect this had was giving a much heavier weighting to the strength score. If your lift was able to hang with all the noncrossfitters/pure lifters who only did that WOD, then you were rewarded...

Re: Is there a true RX standard for wall ball target height?

If the ball hits the bottom edge without hitting the face of the target it is a no rep. The middle of the ball (part that sticks out the furthest) can hit the bottom face of the target but not under...

Re: Rogue - Black Friday?

Re: Does my employer have the right to...

No, it's actually saying you are less than an employee, i.e. you have no workman's comp or unemployment protection, and you have to pay all your FICA rather than the employer paying for half. So...

Re: Jumping pull ups - Standard?

The bar should be at a height that it hits the middle of your forearm when you are reaching past it, and then you lower yourself with your legs to fully straighten your arms below the bar on every...

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Yes my first thought was how small the tennis stadium playing field is, and how close quarters even the speed clean ladder was last year. I suppose without the handstand wall set up there they could...

The South region also had Latin America included, not the biggest pool of elite athletes to qualify from. Several of those women time capped on most of the workouts. It's a lot different to do 7...

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

There will be an extra mens heat, womens heat, and team heat for each event, so there will be more rest between events than the other regions will get, but
probably no more than an hour extra.

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Regional rankings do not get you to the MQ, it's the worldwide ranking that counts, and there are no 40-44 women with any scaled workouts in the top 200. There are 8 in the top 100 in the 45-49 and...
