Dave Castro is giving commentary on the East Regionals feed about how he removed push-ups from the Event 1 version of Murph due to variation in judging standards by Regionals-level judges. Interesting....

Several of these athletes look like they are tearing their pectoral muscles on event 2. Alex Vigneault had to withdraw for a torn pec practicing event 2. I wonder if Dave will address the issue for the next 2 weekends. Wow crazy...

This was really weird, it's not as if they can't do the movement, the question is if they did not warm up the chest and shoulder area enough prior to the event.

Very unusual for this to happen.

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Alex, it is the speed of the contractions and overall work on the shoulder girdle leading into it that caused the problem. Likely also a function of Crossfit and the training itself. RD's are generally performed with way too much internal rotation. Notice this did not happen to any women that we know of. Likely due to the much slower rate of doing them.

Notice also that no one came up lame from doing the same volume of dips related to Muscle. It has been said several times that doing RD's for time like that is not a great idea, hopefully this is the last we see of them and the next couple weeks people are maybe a little more careful and listen to their body, but racing for points.....I doubt it.

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

The heavy dumbbell snatches have got to be a factor as well, that is, the combination of ring dips and dumbbell snatches. Most of these guys are favoring upper body a lot for the snatches - very little lower body engagement. That effort will have an effect on the ring dips.

I doubt there will be any change to the programming. They may instruct the athletes on proper warm up and pacing during the event. Changing the programming would feel too much like admitting that CrossFit causes injury.

It's not like this was the first time we've seen ring dips show up.

2014 regionals
2012 games (Elizabeth)

Katrin Davidsdottir would have won if not for the 10th place finish in event 5. I'm not sure what happened there, but she got way behind on the first set of 21 muscle-ups and never caught up. Was she struggling with muscle-ups? Was it a struggle with a judge?
