New penalty rule in effect at CrossFit Connection

Well this looks interesting: starting next week CrossFit Connection in Burlington will be implementing a penalty rule for their WODs. This is being done in order to dissuade and correct poor form.

Each week the gym will designate a movement as the penalty move of the week. It might be push ups, sit ups, burpees, squats lunges, whatever.

For this to happen, a penalty will be imposed for not squatting below parallel, not hitting the 10 ft mark on the wall ball, not fully extending the overhead movements, not getting to the floor during push-ups, and so on.

During the WOD, participants will be given only one warning; on the second offense they must stop their workout and complete the penalty move before continuing on.
