Today we will be doing the 2014 CF Open WOD 14.2 . For a description, click HERE (and then click on week 2 tab). You can also watch the demo video below. There will be no group warm-up, so you will need to come in and warm up on your own. A recommended warm up will be on the board; however, do whatever you need to do to be ready for the workout.
Although I've never done this workout, it seems like one that I would never want to repeat, especially only after a few days rest. If overhead squats and/or chest to bar pull-ups aren't your thing, you probably won't improve that much should you choose to redo it. And if you are good at these movements, it's probably safe to assume that your arms are going to be pretty sore for a while after, and there's a good chance you will tear your hands. So get it right the first time and give it all you have. Good luck!!!
Great job to everyone who competed in 14.1! We had some great individual results - Amanda took tops for the gym with 355 reps! The CFR team currently sits tied for 83rd in the Region. A lot can happen (and change) over the next 4 weeks, so be sure to give it everything you have going forward. If DU's got to you, make sure you are practicing every day.
I want to clear up any confusion regarding the videotaping of certain athletes, etc., during the Open workouts. If you think you could potentially place in the top 60 overall (not in any single workout) in the North Central Region, then you should be videotaping every workout. If you do not think you will finish in the top 60, then there is no reason to video any of your workouts. Even if the CFR team makes the cut for Regionals, no one will need to submit a video of any workout, unless one of the team members places in the top 60 overall. Then only that person who placed in the top 60 would need to submit a video.
Please also note that it is not required that every single workout be judged by a trainer who has completed the judges course. Only those athletes who feel they will place in the top 60 in the North Central Region need this requirement.
Don't forget to have your final weight taken as well as the post-Paleo(ish) Challenge pics! Today is the last day to be eligible to win the prizes. There are still a handful of you out there that haven't paid your $10 entry, so don't skate!
Strength/Skill: Your choice. Whatever you choose today, be ready to give 110% on the WOD.

Miss a workout this week? Make it up today. Otherwise, work on stretching, mobility, and a skill or two, but no heavy metcons. Recover from the previous three days and be ready for tomorrow...
The Paleo-ish challenge ends on Friday, so please be sure to get your weight and post-pictures taken before the end of the week. Late weigh-ins/pictures will not be accepted.
If you haven't already signed up for the Open, DO IT NOW! We will all be completing the Open workouts every Friday for the next 5 weeks, so you might as well get an official score for it.
