"How fit are you?"

So, what do you guys think of the competition model they posted? (http://www.crossfit.com/journal/libr...it_Are_You.pdf , wfs duh)

I'm a little daunted; I think there's two things I can hit first tier on and one that I could hit second or third. The rest are a wash

Very strength-oriented, yes? 350lb deadlift and 10 parallette HSPUs just to get in the running?

Re: "How fit are you?"

There are some older posts about this(search the board). The "How fit are you" is from an older CFJ. I seem to remember that if you can even get the minimum you are a bad ***.

I can't open it at the moment, but that is what I assume it links to.

Re: "How fit are you?"

I assume these are for assessing the very high end of fitness.

"anyone scoring 100pts has credible claim to being one of the fittest people on earth" I think I got the quote close.

Yes the bar is set pretty high on this one

Re: "How fit are you?"

Having never benched before... that would kick my butt hardcore especially when the standard is a 300 lbs bench.

I'd fail the first two, max out the tabata squat/muscle ups, and probably first or second tier the other two.

I guess the major problem is that I'd have a better time if I was a bit heavier.. like with those DLs where 350 is already more than 2.5x my bodyweight.

Pretty sick stuff though.

Re: "How fit are you?"

Yeah, any time I am feeling like a hardass all I have to do is read through those standards. I was thinking about taking a week and trying these sometime in the near future, although I know for a fact that the bench and the L-pullups will kill me, and my HSPUs are something like 7 or 8 at the most if done with hands elevated. I think a few weeks ago I messed around on the bench. I should go back to my log and see what I put up.

Re: "How fit are you?"

While CF is normally 3 on/1 off, I could see Coach going with "Hell Week" and having a WOD each day for 5 days - each day the WOD is one of the tests. On day 5 - post total score to comments. I think I might actually do this every other month as a "Hell Week" test then take the weekend off.

I have this fantasy that one week we're going to have a nasty cycle, finally make it to the rest day, check the site, and see another workout. Surprise! Constantly varied!

Re: "How fit are you?"

I am just wondering if there are any people on this forum/in this community who can actually score 100 points on this. If so, what are their stats/background etc... I would be happy just to get scored by this thing (ie. 20 points). I guess I still have time at 17, but these tasks are quite daunting. First I would imagine that you'd need to be heavier than I am right now (160lb) to get the bench/deadlift up that high (obviously functional muscle). Is there an equivalent rating for women?

PS: Hell week would be great.

Re: "How fit are you?"

The more I look at what is required for a "100" I doubt any normal person with standard genetics could do that with so much broad fitness. 80-100 range overall is for those people.

Here is Greg doing test 3: http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/C...quatMUTest.wmv

He gets a 525 (16 points) - and that is amazing!

My contention is that a score of 80-100 makes you one of the fittest people on the planet. If someone can score a 100 they are:




I think come October I'll post a "Hell Week" challenge on the boards and anyone who wants to join me can post in it with their scores each day.

Re: "How fit are you?"

I'll put it this way, I think they should at least give the scoring for below their current schema. Otherwise you might not even bother if you know you can't get on the chart.
