Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I'm thinking a .a is a good bet, but not another 1RM. I think they'll balance out having a .a of a strength component, with a .a of a gymnastic movement (HPSU would be my guess) or mono-structural (maybe a 3 min row for cal?).

either way I see Panchik winning vs Bridges. Although, Josh is a warrior on the long work outs.

now that they announced the work out. I see Josh doing very well. His HSPU are usually amazing and 185 is light weight for him.

Bridges doing his hspu with hands too far apart so he's not reaching his tape mark. Getting no repped like crazy

Yea that new standard killed Bridges. He will do it again, I'm sure. Judging is huge in this workout. There will be a huuuuge discrepancy between how people judge each other on this one.

he just said that he will be doing it again. as for judging, i agree 100%, i can see a big discrepancy in judging. Bridges had Boz so he pretty much got the most strict judge out there.

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

For scaled, one barbell or two? Two different weights would required loading/unloading 10 lb. plates to go from 95 to 115 each round.

Doesn't say either way in the video or the printed standards. HUGE advantage to have 2 barbells -- no transition time.

Thoughts?
