If you can't do muscle-ups, that's 120 pullups and 120 dips – both on the rings!
Above: Coop and Rosie doing their muscle-ups at CrossFit Ontario Sectionals last weekend.
Downtown at noon, coach Coop will lead the class in a slightly 'different' workout…… meanwhile, Mitch will teach Snatch technique at the Park.
'30 Muscle-Ups for time' is one of our most hotly-contested WODs on the record board. Eric Ross has the current record at 8:37, but a half dozen different members have begun linking their muscle-ups since he set that high bar at Christmastime……
Tomorrow is our second 'bring-a-buddy' challenge! Got a friend? Bring 'em to the Park at 9am or Noon free – and you get in free, too! Partner challenge tomorrow!
A point for debate on a cold Friday: the record board is definitely effective. It's a huge accomplishment to have your initials on there, especially with a little asterisk next to them (meaning the WOD has been done as Rx'd.) How would you feel if, after driving yourself through a wall to earn your spot, it was erased and replace by someone with less-than-ideal technique? What if their character is beyond question, but no one actually saw them finish the WOD? Do we require a refereed contest to award a record? Is it enough that the record is achieved in a coached group? Refereeing at the Ontario Sectional, though done in earnest, fell victim to the same subjectivity of any event judged by a human. What qualifies the judge to award a win / place / tie / record?
