Winter Games for CFFB & CFE?

Thinking about this USAW/Crossfit (wfs) thing got me thinking....

So since we just got done with The Crossfit Games, which is held during the summer months, what about a seperate set of games for the sons of Crossfit, Crossfit Enurance and Crossfit Football?

This could be an event that is held together and people could pick which title they shoot for since all the wods would be completly different. The Endurance title would have a half marathon, and of course some crossfit type wods. While the Football title would obviously be more about strength/heavier events along the lines of crossfit mixed with strongman events with sprints on the football field.

Thoughts?

I think it's a cool idea.

On the mainsite they posted a video for the "Crossfit Endurance Challenge" so looks like they've already thought this idea up a bit.

Yeah I saw that, and it also kind of is what lead to me thinking about the idea. Just a thought, guess no one thinks it's a good idea. lol

Re: Winter Games for CFFB & CFE?

Wouldn't that mean a race and a football game?

Re: Winter Games for CFFB & CFE?

I'm thinking something combining strongman and endurance racing.

Something like a Litvinov =
4 rounds of couplet:
  • Front Squat 405 lbs
  • followed immediately by a 75-second 400 meter run.

ahem, scale accordingly
