My comment clearly stated that I realize it was a freeze frame from some part of the movement. Nobody knows if that was his top position, but seeing how he was already doing it again because friends said he had some questionable lockouts on the first attempt, I'm guessing this wasn't a freeze of his top position.

Do you self a favor and go watch the video of Irving Hernandez doing 14.2. He goes unbroken on 20 C2B in :18 to just finish inside the time limit and move on to the next round. Freaking amazing.

I watched it last night. UH-MAZING. You know what's crazier, though, is it didn't even HIT me that he 'earned' more time by doing that. I don't know how he could keep moving after doing pullups number 160-180 unbroken.

I loved the looks from the girls in the background when they realized he was going to go unbroken.

Just looked and he finished 2nd to Josh Bridges last year for 13.5. Definitely built for that type of workout.

Re: 14.2 strageties/ scores

if you havent seen CLB's video of 404 performance in 14.2 it is here

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhk3877zBbU


I just have one question? why is the pullup bar bending and giving so much? since when do standard rigs give that much? she weighs 130#, what what it do with a 210# guy?

Yeah, I saw that, and some people commented on the FB Games page. Does not seem legit, seems like that "spring" would assist in obtaining the next rep. My suspicion is, she used that to help with her hands, has to be easier on the hands compared to iron, but when you finish 51 reps clear of the next closest competitor, and you have a suspicious piece of equipment.....I dunno.....

It's more like a gymnastics bar - similar to men's high bar. If you watch men compete in high bar, the bar bends and flexes and it does help with release moves and generating a big swing.

Example of a high bar routine: (WFS) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAEDGh51gkM

That being said, CrossFit HQ never put any standard on the equipment other than it had to be a bar. You could have used a fat bar, a homemade pull-up rig, a wooden bar, etc.

and this is a bunch of BS if it is a gymnastics bar, and that score thrown out
