Aside from the fact that the quarter-finals didn't pay anyone a cent for performing...
The CrossFit Quarter Finals was a spectacle to watch!
- They introduced some movements that have massive carryover to the affiliate class workouts (V-Ups and Cross-overs)
- The workouts didn't have too much volume (Previous years had soul-crushing amounts of pistols and Ring Muscle-ups)
- Workouts 1/3/5, if they were an event at regionals would be an absolutely insane event to watch (Due to the changing weights and movements, this made these workouts easy to track)
- Workout 3 was literally 15 Heavy AF Clean and jerks for time which was awesome to watch
These factors, plus the simple progressive ability buy-in, allowed many athletes to participate, even if they physically couldn't complete a certain movement.
I can't wait to see the semi-finals, and what they have installed for us.
