[QUOTE=Tim Alford;1250318]I did feel "bad" for Lauren, I kinda feel like these Open demonstrations are to showcase the athletes (which it did for Foucher) but it showed an obvious weakness in Lauren's game. In the Cool Down aftershow she said how shocked she was to be invited, which is kinda how we all felt. Maybe they wanted us to see that an elite athlete can still struggle? Who knows?[/QUOTE]

It was obvious to me that they chose these two athletes based on the Power Trio of Hotness thread.

Sadly 10 seconds away from no re-do.. but happy that this workout was not brutal on the body like last weeks.

Tomorrow is the day.. was a wall ball and transition workout for me. Except for being a woos on the last set of double unders. Broke at 12, stopped at 36 WTF and then broke again at 60.. then did more..

Wonder how much time between filming the standards with Brooke E-nice.. do they do it that day and release it that night or weeks + in advance. Wonder if they just film the exercises, no reps, good reps stuff like that all at one time.

Yeah the trio of hotness. Frankly for me it is Lauren Brooks and Katrin Tanja Davidsdottor and then the rest of them.

But yeah her against Foucher with the MUs was a tough one for her.

My expectation is that Brooke spent a day or two filming movement standards for everything under the sun. She is a high level competitor so there's no way they did this in a way that reveals the WOD to her early.

This is what I am thinking... A possible "Grab Bag" of hundreds of movements at various weights, so that Castro can decide the WOD at the last minute.

Anyone seen the video of Briggs 15.3 yet? I don't remotely doubt she did it perfectly, I just want to watch the spectacle of her finishing a full round (and 1 muscle-up) every 3.5 minutes!

I've wondered about that. I think they must film it all weeks or months in advance because she is wearing the same outfit in all the pictures.

I guess maybe they just tell her the movements to demo and not the workouts.

I wonder how many people know the workouts ahead of time. They seem to be pretty good at keeping the workouts a secret.

So what's going to happen on [B]15.4?[/B]

2 animals that are going to give it 100%

[B]I think we are looking at:[/B]
Box jumps
Cleans or thrusters or both

Some type of ladder with no time cap as this will separate the field even more.

15.3 was a relatively long Open workout. I'm feeling like we're in for a flat out sprint. 500m row, 50 burpee box jump overs, 500m row, or something.
