Re: Have we all seen this yet?

I am looking at the event right now, it does not seem confusing to me at all.

As a side note...that didn't take long for the NPFLs first Achilles tear. Hope for a speedy recovery for Jamie.

oh is that what it was? i thought it was a cramp or something since she kept holding her quad. man, that's too bad but those were tall boxes and very high pace.

Re: Have we all seen this yet?

To be fair, the opportunity for achilles injuries is present whenever rebounding box jumps are done, not just in the NPFL, but it was pretty sad to see that happen. She was one of my favourites. Overall, I found it to be fairly entertaining and the graphics and live leaderboard seemed to be better than what CrossFit uses during their streams. Still not sure if it will take off though.

That was the point I was making. When can high rep rebounding jumps finally be eliminated from training/competition (be it CF, NPFL or whatever)?

Well, we've banned them at our box and from the competition we're hosting in August (Thailand Throwdown 2014 -- WFS). And I've been hearing from a few other boxes that they are also dropping them. So change may be coming slowly.

Ah okay then I agree with you.

Re: Have we all seen this yet?

i wish they would ban them completely. just make it so the athlete has to full stand at the bottom. it just unnecessary risk and for what? saving 10-20 seconds?

Re: Have we all seen this yet?

I'm alot more excited for this after watching tonight's competition.

They added a "Current Reps Left in this Station" graphic that really improved the experience the second time around. Also, becoming more familiar with each event helped me to focus on the actual race rather than trying to figure out what was going on.

Now they need a Toronto franchise and I will be super happy.
