The workout above is a cranked up version of Cindy using movements that you are more likely to see in CrossFit competitions. The reason why I think competitions neglect to use simple body weight movements like pull up, push up and air squat is because they first off are not very entertaining or exciting to spectators who may not have a great understanding of the sport. Also body weight movements are typically performed at a much faster rate and the end point ranges of motion for judging no reps becomes a very difficulty task. Like for example with Cindy:
- did the chin get all the way over the bar on the pull up?
- did he go all the way down on the push up?
- are they fully extending their hips at the top of every squat?
Using chest to bars, hand release push ups and wall balls have clear start and end points, making it much easier to judge and standardize
