Re: Cool alternative fitness competition idea
I like this idea a lot and it's one I think the CF games should start moving towards. The main reason being that all of those events would have absolutely no ambiguity as far as judging is concerned. Get the work done as fast as possible. No need to worry about hips below the knees on a squat, bottoms up on a KB swing, or arms locked out when going over head.
Obviously the movement standards and judging criteria are becomig increasingly important as CF grows and the winners receive more and more money. This would be a way to avoid any possible inconsistencies in the judging. The downside of this though is that it would certainly **** off the metcon freaks who've got the strength and the engine to do 45 165lb C&J's in 5 minutes.
