What are the CrossFit Games?

“In implementation, this looks like sport. This is revolutionary. It's as distinctive of the program as are the movements and the charter of functionality and variance. Our workouts are competitive events.

The strength and value of CrossFit lies entirely within our dominance of other athletes. This is a truth divined through competition, not debate.”

Greg Glassman, CrossFit Co-Founder & CEO
3, 2, 1 — GO!

Dutch on the Games and Kipping Pullups

Here's a great interview with Dutch Lowy, definitely a front-runner for the Games this year. He talks with Tony B about the standards, the events, and shows us that yes, (if you're a beast) you can do the "butterfly kip" to the Games standard. Give it a look!

I am no beast (a small 105lbs) and I can do the butterfly kip touching my chest each time. I'm guessing we'll see alot of the butterfly at these games.
I'm glad to see there are movement standards, so no one can say "well he/she only won because..."

Good luck in the Games everyone!
