Sorry for the time it took to construct this post. We wanted to try and bring in 2013 data and have some overall comparisons between the two Opens. However, after some debate, it was decided we are still too new to really have anything of interest from 2013 to 2014. So, with that being said, in this post we will stick to how 14.5 shaped up only.
Chipper! 14.4 was the classic CrossFit chipper. A well designed workout geared towards testing your capacity and skills. Our initial thoughts on 14.4 was that this would be a good workout for our athletes. However, CrossFit Reflexion was bested this week by six other gyms in the Portland area and was closer to the average line than in any other previous open workouts.
This week we got to test strength! As a box we were excited for this workout and theorized our athletes would perform well. It's worth noting that 14.3 required relatively low skill as compared to 14.2. Hence, we figured nothing would stand in the way of more great performances.
