Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

This might be a dumb question but is games.crossfit the only place to view the 14.2 announcement and workout? Or do they actually have it on a tv channel?

I counted 9 Games athletes from last year who aren't competing this year, 4 b/c of injury and there's only one that I haven't heard any kind of explanation as to why they aren't competing

This looks like it's going to hurt.

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Well, a coach and I just found a loophole in the rules, since she can't do chest to bar either. We're calling it the "grappling" chest to bar -- it includes hooking your feet on the bar to get your chest high enough to hit the bar.

Slow, technically not against the rules since they only specify starting and ending positions, and hilarious to watch.

We are, however, NOT counting it for our Open scores. Alas.

Wouldn't that be covered under the unusual movement rule and require pre-approval?(if you wanted to count it)

Oh, it was unusual, that's for sure!

There is, of course, no way it would count, since it goes against the idea of what a chest to bar is supposed to be. We were just messing around since we suck at chest to bar...

I need a better visual. Are your feet on the same bar as your hands? That seems a lot more difficult than a C2B.
