Good question. Interested in the answer myself.

Re: 14.2 strageties/ scores

I was thinking the same thing...A pair of lifters is a good piece of gear for this one. I scored 347 last week and hope to make it past the 16's. finishing the 18's inst even realistic for me. Not too many scores posted yet but it appears over 200 looks good....for now. Unfortunately I have been battling a cold and can only hope to be 100% when I go!!

Re: 14.2 strageties/ scores

Are we allowed to sit and rest on a box nearby? I did not see anything in the rules against it. But sitting is better than standing for recovery-laying down is better!

Yes but only on a 12" box.

Re: 14.2 strageties/ scores

What hand protection are you allowed to wear? Seems like I remember in the games a few years ago they were only allowed to tape their hands, couldn't wear gymnastics grips or anything else. Now alot seem to be wearing gloves so didn't know what the rule was now.

Re: 14.2 strageties/ scores

Any advice on doing butterfly C2B pullups? I'm ok at regular butterfly pullups and my max is 25. Sometimes it takes me a minute to get in the right rhythm if i'm tired. I usually kip C2Bs and my biceps get really tired after like 20 reps

I wouldn't (I suck at them anyways). Unless you are efficient with them. A lot more force to get up and I think they will get to you quicker. I feel like kipping is more efficient in this WOD, unless you can butterfly really well. You can control your breathing better and whenever you get tired of doing butterfly c2b then you are going to do kipping anyways. It take more time, but less energy.

I'd stick with what you are used to doing--and make sure your reps are quality because no reps will really hurt.

Speed is not going to matter for most folks in this workout. You have plenty of time to get through the reps if you can keep moving--even in the round if 16 if you get there you would have almost 3 seconds per rep. That is plenty if you can keep working. Success will be determined by your ability to just keep working and hammering out good reps even if you don't do them really quickly.
