Re: 14.3 tips and strageties. Jump or step?

Just watched Malleolo's performance... what??!

If I was watching correctly he went unbroken through the set of 225 and the first 15 of 275. Did 10 on his first set of 315 too. All at a body weight of 170!

Well I would expect her to look fine on the beginning weights. At the end of the second to heaviest weight is where it started going downhill to me (and the heaviest weight was really bad). Also, she was really overextending at the top.

Siddell went unbroken through the first FOUR barbells.

After what happened to her last year, I'd be over emphasizing lock out and extension on everything I did on video.

I can definitely see why as getting no repped would suck, especially if it invalidated a video submission, but it is still not something that is good to do for your back.

He is built for deadlifts - long arms and short legs. He has the best performance for the 21-15-9 deadlift and box jump workout as well.

Just because he is built for it doesn't deny the fact that he has to put in the work to maximize his potential. From a data perspective, I love to see him do well on these deadlift workouts. It answers the question, "If all the top athletes perform at their peak, who has the advantage for X, Y, or Z workout or movement?" Like seeing Irving Hernandez win 14.2. He is made for pull-ups - low bodyweight and high upper body strength.

Did you watch the latest update show on the Games site? He said he was out to eat with a bunch of friends when the announcement came out and they all just looked at him and started laughing.

I love when a WOD comes out and it sounds like it was programmed just for you.

Pat Sherwood said, "This workout is from the Malleolo family recipe."

Also impressive to note that two other guys matched Malleolo's 182 reps. Malleolo wins based on the timed tie breaker, but they still did as much work.
