CF Games Open 2011.2 strategy

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 15 minutes of:
155 pound Deadlift, 9 reps
12 Push-ups
15 Box jumps, 24" box

(100 pound Deadlift / 20" box for females)

My first thoughts were that the push ups were going to be the "limiting" factor. However, the double hip-extension from the deadlift and box jump combined will definitely be brutal. Scores already on the site seem to indicate that 13-15 rounds is attainable and a great score.

Out the gate I think holding yourself to a round a minute (even if you could go faster initially) seems viable up until minute 10-12, after that pacing will probably go out the window due to fatigue and you'll get what you get.

Top athlete prediction (of past competitors):
Graham Holmberg/Kristen Clever

Best score prediction: 18 complete rounds

Re: CF Games Open 2011.2 strategy

I tested this one out and got exactly what I expected. DLs easy to breeze through. The hand release pushups started getting to me around round 4 and started to slow me down. But the time killer is the box jumps (for this 48 yr old). I don't think we'll see anyone hit 18 rds; 16 or 17 maybe
