I would agree with this. If they put something in w/ muscle-ups and/or 500# deadlifts - alot of people will "eliminate" themselves. They want high participaction (presumably, to make more money...) and the best way to do that is with inclusive WoDs. I would bet that regionals is where the tough stuff starts to come up.

I have been known to be wrong, though, 5-10% (or 80%) of the time.

Re: 2011 Games site is live

Fran would seem to be one of the more logical starts (to me). Most folks can do it, but not many can do it really fast. Doesn't require a lot of equipment.

I hate Fran. Just for the record.

Re: 2011 Games site is live

I don't think they'll throw any named wods in there. I think they'll mess around with the time domains a little more. Maybe start with a medium duration (8-12 mins), then go short (sub 8), then long (over 15). The weights should fit accordingly, but won't be stupid heavy. I wouldn't be surprised to see a DL wod with 275-315lbs for a shorter time domain.

Re: 2011 Games site is live

Anybody get to see the workout before the site went offline due to mass traffic?

No but you can type "crossfit" into google and select their "Real Time" search option. People posting there by the second.. you're bound to find out as soon as anyone knows there.

No dice, just a bunch of people freaking out about the site being down. Might have crashed before the WOD was even posted.

The Games site did not crash because of excess traffic. There are some last minute bug fixes getting addressed. - Tony Budding of CFHQ

... but still no WOD

Re: 2011 Games site is live

It would appear that the site was not ready for the unknown and unknowable!
