Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Anyone watch the Australian Men's event 1? I'm confused because I thought that Ben Garard finished at the same time as Khan Porter (first place in the final heat, around 2:38-2:39)... but on the...

He won the 2007 CrossFit Games and is the owner of Optimum Performance Training (OPT) http://optexperience.com/ WFS

On another note, I am kind of surprised at how few people are in the stadium. I...

Re: Have we all seen this yet?

Overall I found it to be pretty entertaining. So far it has exceeded my expectations (granted they didn't start super high). Would be interested to know how it was watching in-person.

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I read an article a while ago that stated that he had hit 385. Couldn't find it, but here are some of his numbers on one of his sponsors pages (not sure how updated they are)....

Don't forget about Fraser either. He puts up 385+ on OHS.

CrossFit Games Website

Anybody else having trouble accessing the Games site? For the better part of the last two weeks the server has been done for me on whatever computer I try to access it.

Re: Have we all seen this yet?

To be fair, the opportunity for achilles injuries is present whenever rebounding box jumps are done, not just in the NPFL, but it was pretty sad to see that happen. She was one of my favourites....

Re: Are Pull Ups Easier for Small People?

And then supposedly packing on 20 more lbs and putting up a 330lb bench and still running a 6:30/mile pace for 20 miles.. which would be the top 3% for marathon runners in 2010....

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I'd take that bet. NorCal is so strong, and without the past champion exemption rule I don't think that he will make it. My pre-regional prediction was Khalipa, Maddox and Piatt. Now I'm still...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I wouldn't be surprised. He is 12th now because he had a 2nd in the handstand walk so he can still do it. The guy that I think will win the region is Mat Fraser though. Have been watching him for a...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

That's a fair point. I feel like there is a way to do something like this though, I'm just not quite sure what the best way to go about it would be.

EDIT: This isn't really directly related to the...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

That's why I love Andrew's idea. Have the total, which favours the heavier guys but then have an event following that uses a % of your lift(s) to determine the weight(s). I think that that would be...

Re: CrossFit Team Competition

To be fair, I'm assuming that the $100 is for the team, so it would be $25 per person (unless I'm wrong on that!). I think that it is kinda stupid though. If Froning feels like making some money then...

His personal crossfit page states 170 lbs so clearly he is at least in that range. 170 lbs really isn't massive, even for his height. Like you said, I...

I recall hearing that Bridges is up to 170+ now but don't quote me on that.

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I honestly think that the judges may have made a mistake. Judging by Lindsay's reaction, she felt the beam hit her hand. I feel pretty bad for her. Then again, the judges may have gotten it right...
