Seems like a pretty steep penalty for missing 5 reps...but if those 5 reps were what got her to the next portion of the workout it makes sense. Does this mean I only need to get 2 MU's for 15.3? Then I can miss the next 5 get to wall balls and DU's and still have a decent score minute the 15%? :rofl:

They have a policy that if you miss 5 or more reps, they automatically do the 15% penalty, so she may have missed more than those 5 reps. And if you miss enough, or aren't even close, then they can just invalidate your score completely.

I was more or less kidding about me only doing 2 MU's instead of 7 which is why ==> :rofl: was here. I couldn't even do the 2 MU's I don't think!!

For the 15% yes I understand the rules. I'm glad they didn't invalidate her score totally!

Wonder how much time they think about these workouts and when they plan them. 1 month out or less is my guess. Julie F vs. Miss B.. that is not much of a match up.. Sam Briggs vs. Rich F... the two biggest volume people in the world.. now that would be a match up. Miss B heard about her being in the show in the Month of Jan.. I don't think that they planned MU with inviting her.. Heck she put on a totally good show.. she is a very cool woman.

I agree, they can't plan this out too far in advance. 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. She did her best and it was a good show. I would have preferred to see Camille in that one. Maybe they wanted us to see that an elite athlete can still struggle? Who knows! Josh Bridges and Scott Panchik should put on a good show next week.

i wonder if they'll ever do one that's relatively unknown to everyone, even Castro; e.g. establish the movements/rounds during the announcement.

Only thing is that it would take a little longer to post up on games site. workout demos could just be canned ahead of time.

would be a cool throwback to the hopper from the original games.

It was nice that they had double unders in the metcon being sponsored by Rx Smart Gear.. good bone to throw or coincidence?

[QUOTE]I went scaled... did it this morning 1hr after getting up.. hit 624 reps which I was pleased with. I think I can make 700 on Monday[/QUOTE]

I think I would rather do between 1-6 MU and call it good. :kicking0:

I've thought the same thing. Give it 14 minutes to try to get 7 MU (Which I haven't really worked in about a year and a half [kipped]) and if not then break a bit and do the scaled.

Man, there is no ****ing way I want to do that many reps. I guess that's only 4 rounds but it sounds horrible.

I just want to give a good crack at a few rounds of DU as I've worked on those for months.

Practice run tonight. Got two rounds pretty comfortably in about 8:30 or so. I want to stay around 4 minutes a round when I do it Sunday, so I know what I have to do to get there. Took a couple of breaks I shouldn't have so won't do that. Will be looking to get back to the wall balls on round 4, gonna have to move.
