CrossFit Games 2015: What’s In Store?

With the official kick-off of the CrossFit Games 2015 tomorrow in Carson, California, we asked some of our top Fitmark Ambassadors to weigh in on the kind of competition Dave Castro has in store for CrossFit competitors this year.

Neal Maddox with Fitmark Shield Neal Maddox | Xtreme Athletics: This is a tough one! I think Dave Castro will throw in some dirty versions of the Girls like he does every year. Or maybe a version of Murph with muscle-ups and and HSPUs instead of the pull-ups and squats.

We have seen Big Bob, The Worm, The Pig, The Swim Sled. I am really looking forward to the mystery element this year. I am going out on a limb this year and predicting some kind of paddling (boat/raft) in the ocean for the teams. I think it would be a good test of communication, strategy and team work. Whatever it is… Team Terminus will be ready!

Rocklin CrossFit Fitmark Power DuffelNoelle Adams | Rocklin CrossFit: I think he’s going to throw in more crazy gymnastics moves like never before. Things like max free-standing handstand holds or deficit free-standing handstand push-ups or maybe even muscle-ups into ring HSPUs, but before this he’ll have a max lift like at the Regionals or make them do a 2-mile farmer carry first!
