I believe a lot of those times are Grace with the full squat clean.

Can't find Josh Everett on the list of males. Did he just not do this one?

What is the weather like there today? Weather Channel says in the low 70s, but I know it is going to be much hotter @ the Ranch! Anyone have a forecast for the week?

Grace is "floor to overhead freestyle" right?

Josh Everett can only manage 2:17. Remember that. Totally uncompetitive with the top guys.

Under no circumstances look at http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/CrossFit_JoshEverettIsabel.wmv where he does Isabel in 1:11. Move along, nothing to see here...

Kieran,

While it is probably true that Everett could crush his current time of 2:17, that is the time that he reported for his athlete profile, and that is where all these stats are coming from: the athletes' themselves.

Grace is not Floor to Overhead freestyle. Grace is Clean & Jerk 135lbs. Please refer to the FAQ for clarification.

Comparing apples and oranges...some of these times are full squat cleans with push jerks, and some are power cleans with a modified push press, so you can't really make any comparison if competitors were doing what amounts to two different workouts. These rankings are nice for making all the rest of us feel inadequate, but will probably not be an accurate gauge of who will come out on top this weekend.

my guess is that the asterisks on the last 3 might mean a squat clean. most all these guys know that the most efficient movement is power clean and push jerk. if they push press it just means they're working harder.

In that video it says Jocelyn used 85# for her 1:27 Grace.

What was Everett's time at last year's games with a 155lbs, full squat cleans? I don't think it was much slower than 2:17, but I could be wrong

Everett did last year's 155lb Squat C&J workout in 4:17. That data (along with everyone else's) is located here.

I think Jocelyn is the true picture of what a strong woman should look like!!

Good luck at the games.

Paul,

See the following comment from Coach Glassman:

"There was never anything for Coach Rutman to lobby. Grace has always been a "two-handed anyhow" as the video portrays convincingly.

If we said "two-hands any how" we'd then have to offer advice as to "how".

C&J will be most efficient. Max output will, however, kill the efficient technique. The productive work is the same regardless of technique. The metabolic costs of the workout increase dramatically with weakening/failing technique." -

So, while "Grace" is written as 30 clean and jerks, one does not need to perform a clean and a jerk for the repetition to count. There are several possibilities that would be acceptable: power clean and push press, power clean and push jerk, power clean and jerk, clean and push press, clean and push jerk, clean and jerk, or even an clean and thruster.

Or power snatch.
Which means Josh has the fastest "Grace"
correct?

No. There is a clean element to the workout.
