Tommy Tackles The Quarterfinals

April 9, 2021 by

The first ever Quarterfinal round in CrossFit Games history is underway and yours truly has the honor of partaking in the five tests scheduled for the weekend, but first a little housekeeping. 

The tests were released in bulk on Thursday and it was immediately clear to anyone hoping for a “fun little competition weekend,” that these tests were designed to separate the wheat from chaff. 

Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in the Open anymore.

At first glance, the volume of pressing, GHD situps, and pistols stand as a clear separator for the elite athletes that train these regularly and the rest of us casuals that managed to get through the Open, but realistically are not putting in the regular work to be considered a contender for the next round.
