DSCF1308Leif meeting the standard

With the recent regional qualifier and last chance video qualifiers the issue of standards has been a common topic. A friend send this text message:

"and wtf is CrossFit slop? What ever happened to virtuosity?".

Referring the the classic Glassman article "An open letter to all CrossFit trainers". So it should be no surprise when a CrossFit coach demands better movement. CrossFit is about becoming a fitter healthier human being, not beating a clock. Another Glassman article from 2003 "The Pull Up" clearly states

"The requirements for the CrossFit pull-up are simple yet tough to execute. The pull-up begins from a hang at full arm and shoulder extension and ends, regardless of grip, with the chest pressed tightly to the bar."

So it should have been so surprise when the CrossFit Games required the chest to bar pull-ups.
