[QUOTE=Steven Thunander;1249897]CFHQ should issue minimum guidelines for the RXed division. Max workout times on benchmarks as RXed, skills required (eg muscleups, pistols), minimum 1rm's on lifts.[/QUOTE]

Possibly they set a minimum limit for example you must be able to compete at least 1 round for a valid score.

When you see people doing 15 T2B and nothing else and then hitting a massive C&J then the system is messed up. If you can do a C&J you must be able to do a deadlift or ?

[QUOTE=David Alexander;1249907]I'd rather be last in rx than first in scaled. Just my opinion.[/QUOTE]
Agreed, which is why I spent 9 minutes trying my hardest to get TTB and had a *legitimate* score of 1. With a C&J of 135# after. But I was thrilled because getting up into the Rx division for the first part of the workout meant that my C&J counted for that much more. Accusations of sandbagging would be pretty ridiculous, I worked my butt off for that 1 rep.

The only time I'm not going to go Rx is if I would otherwise score a zero (ie, can't even get one rep of the very first movement). Which is why I think we *are* going to see the more difficult movements placed first in these workouts, to separate people out to scaled right away.

I will cry if pistols come out. I have a knee that's been ravaged by a bone condition (OCD: osteochondritis dessecans) and some surgically-removed cartilage. CF has made me realize I am still capable of a lot of movements despite that, but the handful of times I've even attempted a pistol have not been fun. *sigh* Who knows....maybe an Open WOD would prompt me to somehow find the capacity to get one...

[QUOTE=Tighe Crovetti;1249879]It's an error that the person who validated the score SURELY should have caught before putting it through, and that the athlete should have addressed by now as well. I found her FB profile, as I was researching whether or not there was ANY chance she did the lift (like, she was an actual competitive weightlifter or something). I'm tempted to message her.[/QUOTE]
I did end up messaging that woman. I didn't get a response, but her score has been corrected.

No chance pistols are in one of the WODs.

Hope for
10 Pistols
15 HSPU
30 Double unders 15 min amrap...

Now what I think that they might use..

Thrusters/C2B just because they use them dam near every year.

It doesn't look like Double unders because the flooring.

Bar facing burpees.. are always a love for HQ..

I have never even been close to what they pick so guess I will stop.

Final-
Chipper-
60 burpees bar facing
50 box jumps
40 thrusters
30 C2B
20 HSPU
10 Muscle ups

AMRAP 17 min

Thanks Vic. 15.1 was a good one for me.

^^^Sounds like a challenging chipper.
