Where do these even come from and should you get bent out of shape? It’s easy to start hearing the buzz in the CrossFit community of Open workouts and standards of movements this time of year. Doug and Chris jump in on where standards originated from the best of their knowledge and how they have evolved due to competitions. How much do they matter for the day to day CrossFitter or affiliate owner, all the way to the competitor. We get a bit off topic with weightlifting and gymnastics work. Speaking of, if you need to get that first muscle up before the Open, Icon has a program that is included with any membership you sign up for. You can at iconathlete.com and click on join. The muscle up program is FREE and under “helpful links”.
