    Has RX for women changed for Kelly? I’ve done it twice at 24″. Does this mean I am a hero? Will there be a WOD named after me?

      Manager’s discretion. I don’t know how many other gyms would be insisting on games standard box jumps which is also manager’s discretion.

        More on that topic: The only authority that I’m aware of in terms of designating an absolute standard on any benchmark workout would be crossfit.com but they don’t apply any male/female distinctions except at competition level. So to be true Rx’d the female standard is 24″ box jumps and 9kg med ball to 10 foot target, just as it is for the men.

      Hero WODs are named after people who have died, be careful what you ask for.

      So Jo, to recap: You’re not a hero, you now have to do heavy med balls to a higher target, and jump on a higher box.
      I bet you’re glad you asked that question.

        I HAVE been jumping on a higher box! The medicine ball: forget it. Can I be half-a-hero?

          Yes, you were jumping on the correct box height (24″) as recommended at the time. This is the first time I have chosen to nominate the female height at 20″ for “Kelly” as Rx’d and so this is now the standard for our gym. Other gyms may or may not be doing the same. Judging standards of movement can differ as well so it is not always possible to determine if our times/scores are directly comparable to other gyms as conditions vary. Included in this are the conditions of the run, sharing of equipment and/or space etc.

            Cool. Will have to get a new Kelly time for this WOD. Just don’t get any ideas in your manager’s discretion for setting the box at 30″. 😉

    Oh no! I think you’re right Jo. Now that I think of it I’ve always done it with a 24″ box jump too…

      Yeh you ladies are right last time I did it was 24″
      Though I must say haven’t conquered the 24″ since my mishap so gladly settled for the 20″
