Ref episode 205 and your discussion with Mindy re form and standards of movement from the Open to the Regionals! Given that all open workouts are either done at an affiliate or verified online by CFHQ there should be no reason for any disparity in standards from the Open to the regionals what so ever. It was a big issue last year as the standards for the open and the standards for the regionals differed on some exercises, box jumps comes to mind!
These inconsistencies need to be hammered out by CrossFit HQ and standards need to be set early and followed. What about all the athletes that are currently preparing for the Open! What standards are they supposed to follow. Will it be hand release burpees / bar facing burpees / burpees onto weight plates!
Shake it up once and for all on the different movements. Set the standards, let everyone know about it and then ensure consistency and tight policing throughout.
The comments made in this podcast about the difference from Open to Regionals last year throws a certain amount of egg on the face of CrossFit as it was CrossFit certified people that were entrusted to keep the standards of movement clean and correct in both situation but in the end it was one of the most talked about subjects as there were so many differences......possibly from regionals to regionals too!!!
