Pistols, DUs and HSPUs are fine. I could care less what they announce, as long as it something I can do at home on Sunday afternoon I am good.

[QUOTE=Jayme Gruber;1250157]The fact that we have a scaled division now for all the people that can't do them.[/QUOTE]
So you're saying it was simply a skill level thing? I thought maybe it was a judge-ability, or establishing consistency, etc... Fair enough. I'm all for [color=#E0E0E0]non-deficit[/color] HSPU!

I'm pretty sure anyone who can do a muscle up can also do a HSPU, so it can't be that they're too hard... I always thought it was a judging thing, it's not super easy to see if arms are locked out at the same time feet are on the wall. Sure experienced judges get an eye for it, but most judges at your gym during the Open aren't experienced judges...

I think that is not a clue for the next Open workout. Way too obvious, and I don't think he would do that.

I also noticed in both live announcements there were boxes, and yet there has not been box jumps yet. We will find out tomorrow.

I am still sticking with my guess of 21-15-9-6-3 of DL-BJ-HSPU.

Rx Ropes is sponsoring the event... so that would be too obvious.. right?? Or maybe it is so obvious they will do it? Anyway hope that they do it.. not just a chunk but something like..

10 pistols
20 HSPu
30 Du's

10 min AMRAP

or
100 pistols
200 HSPU
300 Double unders..

That would be a cool one... calling Dr. Elbow.. Dr. Tennis Elbow..

But I have not ever predicted the workout.. all I know that is I would love a wheel house one.. guess they want us to improve out weakness so they are all good like Rich and CLB.

I like the first one but reverse the reps on HSPU and pistols. 20 pistols easy, 20 HSPU will be a lot of people staring at the wall for a while. Especially if they are strict, which I could see.

I think for those using a video camera, judging for HSPU would be difficult to verify full range of motion, heels touching the wall, hands inside the box (games standards), etc..


Not saying they won't do it though.

Do Oly shoes make pistols easier?

Forget oly shoes the only way to make pistols easier in this case is if I wear high heels :rofl:
