Here is an idea, as the DL part of the WOD is quiete low weight, how about using a hook grip on those and preserve the "normal" grip for T2B?

EDIT: oh..I see now the lady after the wod gave that exact tip, glad I was thinking in the right direction :)

I haven't read the rules, but since you can do a workout multiple times and these are scored separately couldn't you just cheese 1 of the 2 and do the workout twice?

For example..

Friday 15 minute clock perform 15 hardcore...skimp 15a with a low score. Submit score.

Monday(or whenever) perform 15 skimpy say 1 rep. Work for a really good clean and jerk. Submit Score.

Did i miss something about this isnt allowed?

You have to do both workouts together. You cant submit 15.1 from one day along with 15.1A from another.

I said you would do them both together but since they are scored separately and verified twice would the better score from each workout be your best score and thus the score you are ranked with?

Or will the system only allow you to put in your score once?

Awesome thanks for the info Kevin, I am sure there were already lots of athletes thinking the same thing I did.

I am not doing the open this year, but good luck to those whore are.

The rules state that if you redo the workout to enter a better score, you have to withdraw both scores and enter new scores for both. I think HQ anticipated that kind of gaming and wanted to make it very clear that it wouldn't be allowed. I wouldn't be surprised if people still try though.

So here's the question...do you get prize money for winning ALL of 15.1 (including 15.1A) or is there prize money for each 15.1 and 15.1A? Maybe someone with no shot at regionals stands around for 9minutes, and then hits an insane C+J, wins 15.1A, gets $2,015.

Interesting question. If they are separate it would be worthwhile for the worlds best C&J could just pony up $20 to enter the open and then stand around for 9 min and then do one C&J for $2015. Easy pay day.

Tie break for C&J is the one with the lower body weight from your games profile. I wonder how many people are looking for fractional plates?

As in Ilya Ilyin should enter a score...............anyone think they can beat even his regular training day C and J ? I believe he is usually good for about 500#, that would be hilarious. Easy $2015 for him if he was interested though.
