Re: 14.3 Rules Clarification

Didn't want to risk it. Ended with 170, but I feel like it could have been 173-176 without.

Re: 14.3 Rules Clarification

Someone commenting on the leaderboard said they had emailed games support for clarification and got this answer:

"We feel like it's pretty clear that each division must start with the weight required for their division. It is not okay to start at a heavier weight. Please complete the workout as it is written.

Collars are not required for 14.3. Good luck!

Re: 14.3 Rules Clarification

Is there any restriction on the plates used? I actually feel there should be. They ought to require a certain number of full-diameter plates depending on the weight you're at.

Someone could have as their weights to add (for each side) a 25-pound metal plate (smaller diameter), 2 metal 10s, and then another 25-pound metal plate, and so on. Makes changing weights for each round the simple matter of sliding on either a 25-pound metal plate or 2 metal 10s on each side. Much easier than pulling off and on full-diameter 25- and 45-pound bumpers, and it would save a lot of time.

Now this would be really hard on the equipment and the floor--when you drop a 315-pound barbell loaded as above, the impact is distributed only on the edges of the one 45-pound plate on each side as opposed to 3 45-pound plates on each side with 315 loaded the usual way. But if you're doing it in a globo and you have no conscience, who cares. The kid behind the desk doesn't get this. You'll get to do 14.3 and leave before anyone is the wiser. Any damage to their floor or equipment will be their issue.

That doesn't strike me as right.

Your question relates to a female workout, but you're a male. I'm confused.

It was a question related to one of his female clients. Kane has ridicuously strong women at his gym.

170 is a huge score regardless, nice work.

what do they put in the water up there? That is impressive to say the least.
