Re: Crossfit Open 2016

I was thinking that the way to handle that would be to just have your score be the slower of the two rounds- whether it be your first go through or your second. Would be a really interesting test of...

Re: Rx Pistols will always be impossible =(

How's your back squat strength?

I really struggled with pistols early on, and wanted to blame my flexibility (because it is legitimately bad), but I spent some time focusing on upping my squatting...

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I think team event 2 was very poorly designed unless I'm missing something. Basically, once the men get through the snatches, the rest of the event is practically meaningless for them unless their...

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

If I was in charge, we'd have the following:

15.5- 3 minutes- max pistols.
15.5a- Clock still running-
Chipper for time: 60 cal row, 50 burpees, 40 box jumps (24/20), 30 thrusters (155/105), 20...

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I think they need to rework things some- maybe add a third division in between RX and this scaled. The scaled workout is such a joke drop down from RX. I understand that you can make any workout...

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

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...

Re: Finding Back Squat Max

This seems like a fairly solid guide.

Used it last week and hit a 25 pound PR on my back squat. I like that it's pretty easily...

Re: Wildcards?

Well, to use Graham as an example- in 2010 he literally made it to the games by 2 pounds on his deadlift.
He only beat 4th place by 1 point, and he deadlifted 502 while a few behind him did 500. ...

Re: Wildcards?

I understand your points in a vaccuum, but I honestly only think 1 applies to Homberg- the first one- I agree that the one that was out in the heat would be different, and there were a few other...

Re: Weak Lower Body

If you want to strengthen your legs, you'll need to do something beyond CF- it just won't build you up past a certain point. I had a lot of luck with Starting Strength- bumped my back squat up 50...

Re: 14.3 tips and strageties. Jump or step?

I'd think going with steel plates for both the 25s and the 45s is the way to go if your box has them. The diameter is usually just a bit smaller for the steel than bumpers in my experience and are a...

Re: 14.1 What do you think it will be?

I understand the surprise and frustration- double unders is high on my list of things I didn't think they'd hit us with right out of the gate along with pull-ups, but when you think about the spirit...

Re: Affiliate Opt-in

I'm curious as well as the affiliate I'm planning to do the open at is new to hosting, so I want to make sure they have everything set up correctly.

Re: 14.1 What do you think it will be?

I'd like to see that, but I bet it would cut out a lot of people on the fence about signing up by starting with pull-ups right away on the first wod. I'd guess at least 20% of the people at the...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I think you're missing Christopher's point Jayme, and I kind of agree with him.
It's kind of like daydreaming. Even though if you ask me point blank, I'll tell you I have pretty much no realistic...

Re: What about a Best Affiliate Average Competition during the open?

Interesting concept- I could actually see it going the other way with regards to participation levels. I could see some of the athletes on the lower end not wanting to sign up so that they don't...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Sorry, but I have to call BS to a certain extent on this. While making sacrifices is what separates the best of the best from the good, you can't possibly believe that genetics doesn't play a part. ...

Re: Too Fat to be a Distance Runner

Tuesday was:
2 rep max hang clean and jerk. Got 195, then 5 rounds of 80% of that.
We were short on time, so after that we just did 4 rounds of 5 strict weighted pull ups (25#), and as many dips...

Re: 2013 Recap/2014 Goals

2013:
I started CF right at the end of 2012, so most of the starting points on lifts are embarrassingly low.
Squat: 225-375
DL: 135-475 (I had never tried to max DL)
Press: 135-170
Clean:...

Too Fat to be a Distance Runner

Might as well log so I can compare over the years. Started CF last December and stayed at an affiliate until August. Have been doing my own thing at home with my wife for the last few months, and...

Tried again in September when I started training on my own: 330/150/450=930
Last night: 375/170/475 for a 1,020 total...
