    2012 Crossfit Open Games

    The open games registration starts February 1st. For those not aware, Crossfit has 1 competition WOD per week for 6 weeks as the preliminaries to qualify for sectionals, then the winners move on to the Crossfit Games in July. Anyone can compete for $10. Verification is as simple as submitting a video with someone verifying your reps, or performing the workout at a Crossfit affiliate with a judge, which then will be submitted by the affiliate management.

    Are you planning on competing?

    I did it last year, just to get a general idea of where I stand among the rest of the world. Actually finished around #7,500 out of 14,000 entrants. Better than I expected..lol

    I will register for the Open. I am more interested in competing Team vs individual. I go to an affiliate, so I can do the workouts there w/o having to submit a video.

    First workout sucked. I got 86 burpees on a 12 per minute pace with some extra in the last minute. I think I can reach 90+ with another try. Won't matter though since everybody that's competitive this year are getting 135-150.

    That was basically a weed out workout. There were a lot of people whose cap was 60 reps, the real difference was how many reps of 165 you could get. I smashed the hell out of my finger the other day so I wasn't able to try this one but I am curious to see how I would do once I get healthy.

    I did this for my conditioning workout on monday and got 60 reps. The weight is silly light, but the cardio required is incredible.

    My viagra super active arrived yesterday. It is a magic! I had an unforgettable night. I am lucky that I ordered a big package of it.
