Competition Silliness

By Coach Ian J. McHugh

I was recently in attendance at a local CrossFit competition and realized, quickly, that there was a lot of good material for me to write about. I have personally attended and participated in many CrossFit competitions, and these things I'm writing about are not necessarily associated with just one particular competition. If you have never attended a CrossFit comp or even a fitness expo this is just some of the silliness that you will encounter.

#1, Skinny Jeans

OK OK this one is just to poke fun. If you are a weightlifter, and have what most would consider "big legs", DON'T wear skinny jeans. You look ridiculous! I don't know how you even got those things on, that would be a sight to see, or how you can even move around comfortably. I understand you are trying to dress in a hip and/or cool manner because you have no real personality or depth, but try another style of jeans. Until Skins comes out with a skinny jean to "help improve recovery", leave the skinnies on the rack. Thank you!

This guy has obviously never done a squat. He can wear skinny jeans.


#2, Movement Standards

This one goes out to both the athletes and judges. Athletes, you should be experienced enough to know exactly what the movement standards are and I would even venture to guess that you had been briefed on the standards. Don't go out there and try to get away with sh*t. Here is my best advice, make your range of motion painfully obvious to your judge. It's a competition and if all athletes would heed this advice we could ultimately create a level and fair playing field, in theory. Also, if you are "no reped" don't be an ass. (I'll touch on this one in a moment).

Judges, and this doesn't apply to all of you, step your judging game up! Don't be afraid to "no rep" someone. Who cares if the athlete you are judging gets pissed off, it's their fault for not maintaining the standard. Something to keep in mind, if you are questioning the athlete's range of motion in your head then it's probably a good idea to "no rep" them. I know you are a volunteer and all you got was a t-shirt, but the buck stops with you!

Nuff said.

#3, A-hole Athletes

We get it. You. Are. Elite. And. Never. Miss. A. Rep. (ok cool! Inside joke, ask me about it later). Giving your judge "the finger", yelling at your judge, touching/pushing your judge, etc. should all be grounds for disqualification. I know in sport that there is a lot of emotion, believe me I do, but I can't help to think how these actions would be treated in other sports. Penalties? Disqualification? Fines? Keep it professional and be tactful. Here's the definition of tactful for all the meatheads reading this, if they've gotten this far.

#4, Unorganized Organizers

So you want to put on a Fitness Competition? Please click here. It might be a good idea to understand how your workout prescription will ultimately play out. If a "games level" athlete DNFs it was probably a case of over-programming, IMO. I get it; everyone has to go through the same workout, but what about some entertainment value. I didn't pay $30 to watch people fail at exercise. Believe it or not you can actually program workouts that make the crowd want to cheer, not look away in agony.

Don't know how to manage scoring? Find someone with half a brain who knows how to work an Excel spreadsheet and a calculator. No joke, it can be that simple. I don't care how fancy of a "system" you have; it's only as good as the person managing that system.

In closing I know that no fitness comp. can be perfectly run or scored, but with a little better planning and effort I'm sure we can come close. LCI 2012 anyone!?!?!
