[QUOTE=Cory House;1255179]Is there any way to go back and watch early heats during the live coverage? Or go back and watch the team's first event of the day, rewind does not seem to be an option on the live stream.[/QUOTE]

you're using the viewer from the games site? (wfs) -- [URL="games.crossfit.com"]games.crossfit.com[/URL]

if so, use the "E#' links at the top to switch events and buttons on the bottom (see attached) to navigate.

[QUOTE=Steven Ngo;1255177]if they allow hand protection, then use hand protection.
you're still gonna need them (your hands) the rest of the week and it makes no sense risking tears when it is so preventable.[/QUOTE]
Just dumbfounded by the amount of people tearing their hands. How do you get to that level and not have a basic understanding of how to protect yourself?

Carnage for sure.

Any reason the bars couldn't be powder coated in white to avoid the excessive heat buildup? The heat can't help a lot...

Wouldn't you think the later heats would see the carnage and either tape like crazy or glove up?

Heat or no heat, the excessive torque when doing bar muscle ups wreaks havoc on your hands. These people aren't n00bs, they should know better and be erring on the side of caution. There's two more days of events left!

I can only imagine the hamburger meat that will be peoples hands on Murph with that vest on...

seeing Murph done with the body armor is pretty cool

[QUOTE=Steven Ngo;1255191]these pullups are...iffy (regarding chin over bar)[/QUOTE]

The pushups look like the standard depends on the judge, especially compared to what the announcer's just described as the standard of compressing the body armor with your body on the ground. Noah Ohlsen is barely touching the ground and getting credit for all but Koski is getting a ton of no reps for what looks like the same exact move.
