[QUOTE=Luke Sirakos;1249551]With a scaled division does it need to be relatively easy?[/QUOTE]
I wouldn't expect the addition of the scaled division to have any effect on the RX'ed WOD's. The open will most likely be as it has been in the last few years.

Same. I think the scaled just lets them substitute double unders for single unders, CTB for regular pullups, etc. And if there is a ladder I'd assume the weight would start slightly lower and not increase as quickly.

Best strategy...

Warm up your Clean and Jerk to about 95% of your 1rm before starting the WOD. then warm up your snatch and TTB.

Also, I am expecting more A/B workouts. Perhaps a max snatch, or two AMRAPs. Look at the Wodaplooza, Granite Games, and OC Throwdown qualifer WODS for more ideas.

Forget the workout, was Rich wearing clear braces?

Yep. I'm surprised I missed it the first time.

I'm pretty sure if I warmed up to 95% of my 1rm, I sure as **** wouldn't want to do much else.

Depends on how much you CJ.

Let's say you're a Regional/Games level competitor. Which means anywhere from #300 (maybe #250-275 in weaker regions)-350ish.

Even with the recovery capability they have I'm not sure that's such a swift idea.

Better to just treat the 6m like a ladder.

My son is 14, has really good T2B's and last year did 185 on a C&J. I'm hoping he does really well on Saturday.

Well, your opener should be 90% roughly so I guess 95% is pretty close.

My buddy took 4 attempts and missed the jerk at 275#. Unknown score during the first part. He's gonna do it again anyways and I think this was more of a trial run. He did not warmup his CJ prior just watched the match, lol.
