+ 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”

Muscle-ups (strict or kipping) require a certain amount of strength to perform well and often. There’s a level of mobility and strength involved to to stay injury-free. You should be able to have 3 strict chest-to-bar pullups, and 3 full range-of-motion dips before attempting any muscle-ups.

Or you can be this athlete.
