Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

So was that a ruptured Achilles? When will we stop seeing box jumps?

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

The pushups look like the standard depends on the judge, especially compared to what the announcer's just described as the standard of compressing the body armor with your body on the ground. Noah...

Sure it happens to athletes in other sports but not at the rate that it happens to CrossFitters doing box jumps. Think about how many people play basketball and the number of games/players in the...

Deadlift - Burning Sensation

Two weeks ago on my last set of deadlifts (365 lbs) I felt a burning sensation in my abs a few inches below and to the right of my belly button. I thought my belt had pinched me and didn't think...

He's 5'6" and well under 200 pounds. I'm not sure what some people expect.

I'd say if you want ESPN production and promotion you do what they tell you. Just a guess.

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Rich is 13 points behind Fraser. Those five points in OHS are huge now. 1 pound there and 1 more muscleup and he's probably in first overall.

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I'll say it again. Rich should've gone for 378 on the OHS. He's not had a great couple of days. I wonder if he's sick or if the competition has caught him. These events seem great for him.

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I thought Rich should've went for 378 instead of 377, then go for 400 on the 3rd lift. Hopefully those five points don't come back to haunt him.

The OHS event was great to watch. I loved the...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

He tweeted about it on 3/1, wasn't his wife one of the announcers for the live announcement/workout show? No way he forgot about it.

Re: Any guesses on 14.2

I'll guess:
Deadlift Ladder with burpees mixed in.

135x21 & 20 Burpees
225x15 & 20 Burpees
315x9 & 20 Burpees
405x6 & 20 Burpees
495x3 & 20 Burpees

or the firewalk. that's a good guess.

Exactly. And the video submission requires another person in the frame doing the judging. My garage space is cramped so unless I can teach my cat to either judge or run a camera it is hard to meet...

They lost me because I don't want to go through the video hassle to finish 60,000th in the world.

Sled Weight?

My wonderful wife got me a Rogue S-35 for Christmas. We've got a good spot on the sidewalk or road about 150 feet to drag it. What's a good starting weight to use? Any favorite sled workouts or tips?
