Re: East Coast CF Games

The format last year was:

1st day: hopper, trail run
2nd day: CFT

Was a total blower with most lifting 100 lbs below their max CFT (from the stories I've been told) because there was intense work the day before and most everyone was sore.

But yeah. The results are in the FAQ. The top 3 guys namely AFT/OPT and Everett I believe said their training was basically whatever was up on the CF site.

Re: East Coast CF Games

How long was the trail run. I looked at the results from last year. I did not understand the times the jerks and all that stuff. It looks like it does not matter how strong you are, but how good of shape you are in.

Re: East Coast CF Games

the hopper is basically anything can come up. they did it with 3 different color balls, one being exercise, one being reps, and one being something else, I'm not 100% sure how they did it. It is on one of the videos from the games.

I was thinking of run and CFT on the first day, hopper on the 2nd.

Re: East Coast CF Games

day1: AM CFT, PM hopper
day2: run

It would probably be the least taxing as far as muscles go (since you're going from extreme strength to extreme endurance; if there was like a vertical test it would go power -> strength -> endurance). That's generally how stuff is scheduled if you're doing tons of max. But you can make it as evil as you want. Run, hopper, CFT or last years hopper, run, CFT makes the CFT really painful (and maybe that was their purpose, actually, as the more fit people will recover better from the day before to lift more on CFT).

hopper = basically random exercises and reps were chosen. I don't know if they had exercises where they pulled from a category of "pull" or "push" or whatnot. If anyone has more info on that it would be cool. Maybe 3 total exercises was it? Or was it just push jerks and pullups?

Run was 5k. If you look at the times they're not that 'great' per se but you gotta remember they did it after they did the hopper which was brutal cause half the people didn't finish in the allotted time.

Re: East Coast CF Games

It does give us something to work towards. Any age groupings?
