+ Man Believes 41st Attempt at Max Snatch Will Be “The One” – The Overheard Press

“Competitors will be assigned a starting time for Sunday’s workout. The top 40 men and top 40 women will compete in the early afternoon. All others will compete in the morning. It is your responsibility to be present, warmed up, and ready to go at the starting time. No accommodation will be made for missing your starting time.

The final heat (top 20 competitors) for each division will have a staggered starting protocol. The athlete with the lowest combined time from the three Saturday events will start first. The next 19 athletes will start at the precise time difference by which they follow the front-runner. Their time for the event will be their finish time minus their start time, but the staggered start allows for the overall winner of the Games to be determined instantly.

For example, let’s assume the top three competitors and combined times from Saturday are Bob (13:00 total time), John (13:05 total time), and Ted (13:20 total time). Bob would start Sunday’s workout at time 0:00. John would start at 0:05, and Ted would start at 0:20.

Whoever finishes first is Top CrossFitter because their combined time across all four events would be least. The final placements for all competitors will be based on the exact times of completion, but this staggered start allows for better competition and spectating”

WA Weather Is Back!

Performance Enhancing Drugs and more have a been a point of contention for a long time in sports and physical activities where money and pride are on the line. This was a pretty good primer when it was aired earlier this year:

A new movie on NETFLIX called Icarus was released and it is a fantastic look into something we all knew about, but didn’t see how deep it really went, how big of a conspiracy it was, as well as ties to some of the current events.

As far as programming goes last week we did some modified 2017 CrossFit Games events, this year we do a mix of previous years’ events!

The Cap Hill Triplet


With any running workout, you can increase the intensity by putting on a weight-vest or ruck (We use GoRuck Ruckers). Just remember to maintain the intended stimulus the workout was designed for- in today’s case it’s an ENDURING workout, meaning it should feel like cardio: lower-powered continual movement from start to finish.
