12.1 Check

Hey guys, I have a separate video showing me fully extended measuring the 6 inches, which we neglected to do in the first one. I assure everyone, it's over 6 inches away. What I'm worried about is that it does not look like my chest touches (even on the reps were I'm limp face down crying). Let me know what you guys think.

Re: 12.1 Check

The way you demonstrated the reach doesn't look like you are at full extension. Did you check out the PDF where they show the arm fully extended and vitrually in line with the ear?

On the burpees, hips seem to be touching well, chest looks tougher in that the top of your chest doesn't appear to touch, but I wonder if your sternum is reliably hittting, which is tough from this angle.

Keep in mind I have no judging experience, just basing my comments after reading the PDF.

Re: 12.1 Check

On the measurement, I took a second video after showing the full extension with my entire body in the shot. It's still 7-8" above my reach.

And oh the woes of having puffier abs than chest.

I submitted it to games@crossfit.com, so hopefully I don't catch any BS from it.

Re: 12.1 Check

2nd vid is much clearer with the height. First might have been fine, just the way it was filmed wasn't as certain.

Looks good to me. The second video is much clearer than the first.

Re: 12.1 Check

Here's my submission on the games site: http://games.crossfit.com/judge/20047 WFS

Added the second measurement in the comments.

On a side note, there are a TON of people posting! The amount of ties is crazy!

1 rep means 300 places higher worldwide!
