Welcome to Fitness Elevated 2013 Sponsored by Progenex.  This year Fitness Elevated will select for the fittest athlete, not just the fastest Fran time or who's the best at WODs.  You'll run, jump, row, carry, maybe even throw?  Here are Friday's events:

Max Broad Jump

500m row (immediately followed by 5K row.  See 5K row for details on scoring)

Monkey Bars + Max Chest to Bar Pullups

A question on the rowing, does the timed 500 meters count towards the timed 5,000 meters? Or is it 500 meters then reset and row 5,000?

Not that my opinion matters anyway, do what you will, I think it is a constantly varied element that they are putting in there with the calculator. It is just a different way of looking at rowing. It is now more accurately simulating rowing on water. It does punish the heavier athlete, but that is a true General Physical Preparedness aspect. The heavier you are the more drag you create, and more energy expended. I am 6'3 220 and a good rower, so I'm excited to see if I can hold my own.

Please reconsider not using the weight adjusted calculator on the row. I don't understand how that will be fair to the heavier athletes. When WOD's are done they are done at whatever height and weight you are. Thats what great about crossfit, everybody has their strengths and weaknesses. What about range of motion, taller athletes pull a longer distance on pull-ups, push a longer distance on presses. Should shorter athletes complete more rep's based on height? Should lighter athletes use weight vests so they pull the same weight as heavier athletes? The list can go on and on. Just program whatever you decide and let the fastest and strongest win based on the WOD's. Thanks for your consideration.
