Jeff Barnett's Statistical Analysis of the 2010 Games
One Man's Look into the Data
The CrossFit Games are the proving grounds for effective fitness methodology. From workout programming to recovery techniques, if something makes you fitter it can be validated by the results of the Games. Unfortunately, as with all statistics, the data from the Games does not always immediately lend themselves to conclusions. CrossFit competition is still in the early stages of development, and we do not have full access to the methods used by the competitors. Nonetheless, it is possible to glean some insight from the results.
Jeff Barnett, CrossFit Impulse, has taken one shot at interpreting the data we have from the CrossFit Games. Barnett decided to compare the competitors' self-reported workout performances from before the Games with their results at the 2010 CrossFit Games. While we have not yet vetted Barnett's statistics, he reaches some interesting conclusions about the interplay between athletes' training results and their performance at the Games.
