After much behind-the-scenes debate and ultimately, some weighing in by CF HQ, we've changed the standard for the muscle-up to a familiar one to most of you: initiating the muscle-up from full lockout.
We've updated the link in the previous post on standards so that it points to the new standards video.
A couple of important notes:
- This decision had nothing to do with any discussion back and forth in the comments of the previous post.
- This, in our opinion, will not affect the final outcome in any material way. It may diminish total number of reps, but the effect will be across the board and will not result in a re-ordering of athletes vis-a-vis the previous standard.
Because of this change in standards, we're extending the deadline for you to tell us whether you're doing the workouts rx'd or scaled until Wednesday 4/29 at midnight. Remember, we need the following information from you by then or you will not be placed in a heat:
Workout A: Rx'd or Scaled
Workout B: Rx'd or Scaled
Name of person who made credit card payment for registration (if other than yourself)
Email us that info at email@example.com by Wed 4/29 at midnight and you're good to go.
And because of this late-breaking development, we'll be posting info on the scoring system and tiebreakers tomorrow morning.
End of story. Let's get on with preparing for the NorCal Qualifiers!
