It's such fun! I have loved judging ever since I judged my first local competition several years ago. I've gone from slightly clueless newbie to three time regional judge and first time Games judge this year! I dig it, and I'm good at it if I do say so myself.

I think this is important. It's a shame for so many of these incredible athletes to end their season this way.

However, I shy away from making conclusions about why these injuries are happening. The causes that are being suggested are speculation.

In your opinion, why are we not seeing the injuries with the women? Mobility related?

My hypothesis is that women naturally tend to have a greater amount of mobility in their shoulder. Especially Internal rotation and Extension. Which allows them to establish a healthier position in the muscle up and dip. I do not have any data supporting this hypothesis though, except my clinical experience with male and female athletes.

Definitely makes sense. I mean, 20+ males that have had issues either during training leading up to regionals or during the work at regionals. As far as I know no females.

I'm not too sure if it were me and I thought i had a legit shot at making the games I wouldn't just try to finish the event in a slow, steady, controlled way instead of the fast kipping dips everyone has been doing. Try to make up ground in the remaining 5 events.

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Super shoulder dominant workouts to say the least. They train so hard leading up the events just to keep up. Add the pressure of the event and going faster than they ever had. Long straps, speed, over trained.. well just a lot to ask of the body especially the ones not in the sport as long.

Christian L said he took breaks on the dip workout just to be safe. But the muscle up event got him on the last day.

The ladies must be more mobile? Shame seeing peeps going thru this stuff.

Its a sport and will have injuries but this is alot of them.

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

saw this also just now..its was like F#$% did this just happen... like in disbelief.. sadly this workout has taken out more peeps then all of the other ones combined adding up plenty of regionals. Just a show stopper for real.
