Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I'm thinking there's going to be another ".a" Max height box jumps?
Chipper and ascending weights are likely, as is some variation of burpee...I also think with all the uproar over MUs, they'll probably keep it less skill based.

I don't think HQ cares about any MU uproar.

(Failed) max height box jumps will make for some good video watching. Might even get its own thread.

I don't think they are upset over it or back peddling, but I think they'll be mindful.
Yeah, the max height box jump fails would be great fun!

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

With the addition of scaled, I was not at all surprised that they put MUs in front. I would not complain about that at all (probably because at 255, I was still able to get a full round in). The thing I would complain about is the Scaled workout looked super boring and seemed like lazy programming.

Also wanted to add, that I would love to see another ".a" max lift (come on Snatch), but I do not think it will be Max height box jumps.

During the wod announcement, they need to do something about the connection to whatever CF gym they make the skype(?) shoutout with.

Haha, yeah it's such a joke. I have a little viewing party each week at my house and we all just crack up at that part. They try to show CF's widespread involvement and throw it to some third world country and the connection is always awful.
