Hey folks, here are some notes from our head coach Nigel regarding perspective on charting progress.
This was the introduction of the WOD “Amanda” at the 2010 Crossfit games. Gives you an idea of Camille LeBlanc Bazinet’s progression (and the progression of the sport) over the last 5 years. Now Camille is faster than male competitors from that year (at the men’s weight of 135) and goes unbroken at the women’s weight with almost no transition time. You could say the sport is still young, but the top 1% here have arguably made further gains here in 5 years than the top 1% of olympians in the last 4 decades. Note that Camille’s background as a gymnast was considered a significant advantage on muscle ups in 2010. Say what you will about Dave Castro, Greg Glassman and team, but they are running a system that literally allows a yearly re-defining of what is humanly possible.
