Games events

Seems like the last couple years the ladder events have been pretty popular but I think the Snatch/ C&J have been used a little too much. What are the odds we'll see a deadlift ladder this year? How about some strongman events too, atlas stones, farmer's?

Re: Games events

Re: Games events

Why not something like weighted step ups, ball slams or a barbell turkish getup ladder?

Re: Games events

I'd like to see a back squat ladder, but it'd be a logistical nightmare. Deadlift/atlas stones would be good.

Re: Games events

Alternating single-leg double unders.

Either that or single unders. CrossFit over-specializes in the double under.

Re: Games events

Max thruster. Seems super popular in my area in local competitions. The "cluster". Squat clean thruster.

Re: Games events

I have been waiting for a back/front squat ladder or max lift for years... It's time they did one one of those (of course there will be bickering about bad calls on the depth of the squat)
