Re: 14.5 tips and strategies

I stepped up to the bar every rep from my burpees. I think it's the way to go on this type of workout. It doesn't wear you out as much and it help me keep a steady pace throughout the burpees. I was...

Re: 14.5 tips and strategies

You bested me by 1 sec. I scored a 16:40 and felt like this was my best workout so far this games (even though I didn't officially sign up). I did it this morning and felt better about this workout...

Re: 14.5???

Not saying I expect it here, but do you think we will ever see lunges of some sort in the open? Walking lunges would probably be out but front rack or overhead lunges in place are fairly easy to...

Re: 14.4 Tips and strategies

I can't see why not. standards just say the rep needs to start on the ground and end on the shoulders with knees and hips locked out.

Re: Amateur division

I agree with that. Having it at a separate time of the year would be important.

Re: Amateur division

If something like this happened it wouldn't be about getting on TV or making money or meeting Dave Castro. It would be about CrossFit HQ recognizing that the common crossfitters who dont have all day...

Re: 14.3 tips and strageties. Jump or step?

Even if you can do rebound jumps it might be better for pacing to do step ups. That way you aren't to work out for the next set of dead lifts. Or maybe do 10 rebound jumps then the last five do step...

Re: 14.3 funny thinking about it

As someone who strained my lower back a year and a half ago doing high rep deadlifts with poor form, I'm going to take this slow concentrating on good form every rep. I know from experience how...

Re: 14.3 funny thinking about it

I could easily see something like
Ascending ladder 3-6-9-12...
C & J
Burpees

But I could also see them wanting to do 3 exercises in this workout, so maybe something like

10min AMRAP
10 155lbs...

Re: Any guesses on 14.2

Completely agree with this. Everyone is complaining about double unders and chest to bar pull ups. These are two things that everyone knew was going to be in the open. There was almost no chance we...

Re: Pretty glad I didn't sign up for the Open

I think what this all comes down to is the same thing I told my friend who was hesitant to sign up for a crossfit gym. He was weary of people thinking he was weak because he couldn't do as much as he...

Re: Any guesses on 14.2

I'm thinking something like

8 min AMRAP
15 T2B
15 Thrusters 100lbs

A lot of people have been predicting burpee box jumps but I don't see HQ doing this. One because it is a harder movement and two...

15 power snatches, 75 / 55 lb.

Re: 14.1 What do you think it will be?

Just saw they announced 14.1 will be Garret Fisher against Marcus Hendren. That should be a good match up.
