  2. I was actually looking at this for this year but didn't have enough heads up. . .I'd be totally in for the endurance challenge next year. The team challenge sounds SUPER FUN!!! Don't know about the camping though. . .that may be where my girlie side has to kick in ;)!

  3. We had some people cheating ROM at my last box so badly that they turned the clock off for about a month.

    I've always said the only person you cheat is yourself. I'm training to make myself better, better skills, more weight and better times.

  4. In all fairness - sometimes folks get a little hypoxiated(sp?) and lose count. So that might result in unintentional cheating. I know there's times I get lost and just kinda go "until it feels like I did enough"

    So if you notice that someone was short a rep or two - maybe it's not on purpose.

    In general though - if folks cheat, well they cheat. Honestly, I'm competing against myself -I'd be a fool to compete against some of atheletes there. :)

    I do have a suggestion for Fight Gone Bad - if we did it pairs, with one person doing the WOD and the other counting - and visa versa - maybe that might help folks get a higher score and concentrate more on the workout.

  5. I agree with John, FGB and WODs like it are good to do in pairs. I done that at different boxes while traveling. It works out good but you always want to go first because you don't want someone who is gassed counting your reps. I did one on Oahu and I'm pretty sure I shorted the girl a couple of reps.

  6. Jovi said it best, when I lose count, i do more than less. Thats how i feel. If i can't remember if I am on 16 or 17, I always choose the lesser number. sux but it is what it is. tears are just sweat coming out the eyes.
