My thoughts? Only one. LAME!
Having last year’s 12.5 actually a repeat of 11.6 was cute at best. People could compare themselves to the previous year, yada yada.
Doing it again this year is just unoriginal.
The only positive thing out of this is that I don’t have to write a huge blog post. I already did it last year:
P.S. The only thing worth noting this year are the tiebreakers. Namely, you should note the time elapsed once all the reps have been completed for a certain movement. Here is a note from HQ:
“In this workout, we are using a special tiebreak method. At the end of each set of exercises, time should be marked. Specifically, as soon as the 150th Wall ball is complete, time should be marked. As soon as the 90th Double-under is complete, time should be marked. The same at the 30th Muscle-up, if you get there. When you submit your final result, your score will be the number of reps completed. There will be another field in which you will enter the elapsed time at the last fully completed exercise set, whichever that may be.
For example, a male athlete finishes all the reps up to and including 10 Muscle-ups, for a total of 250 reps. This is his score. He also finished the 150th Wall ball at 7:50, and the 90th Double-under at 9:25. In this case he will enter 9:25 as his time in the tiebreak field since this was the time of completion of his final fully completed set. This athlete would be ranked above someone who got 250 reps and a tiebreak time of 10:00, but below someone with 250 reps and a tiebreak time of 9:00.”
