What is “good time to beat”?

Beating “good time to beat” is not an easy task and I want to show you how you must perform if you want to beat that time.

I’ve been doing CrossFit since 2012 and I am able to beat the good time to beat in about 90% of situations. I usually fail to beat it only if workout consists of my weakness like high volume muscle ups or high volume heavy squats.

How to beat “good time to beat”?

When I was making the calculator I wanted to make “good time to beat” to be very challenging and you should be able to beat it only if:

  • You are very good at CrossFit
  • Workout consists of your favorite movements
  • Workout is in your favorite time domain
  • Difficulty of movements in the WOD is appropriate to your skills

How did I beat good time to beat in this WOD?

I have done sample workout (check above) to show you how it looks if you crush good time to beat.

Workout was right in my wheelhouse because I am pretty lightweight guy (165 lbs), I am very great in the lightweight and bodyweight movements where I can just keep moving and there was just enough reps in each set so I could do all sets unbroken.

Goal was to do 10 KB Golbet Squats unbroken and go right into 10 KB SDHP without putting kettlebell down than slow down little on burpee box jumps to recover little before kettlebell in the next round.

I was able to keep high pace in all rounds except round #4 which was just ~5 sec slower than my average round.

WOD Time Calculator told me that good time to beat for this WOD is 9:35 while my time was 6:41.

I have tested many WODs already but I was never able to beat good time by so huge margin.

How other people did in that WOD?

We have done this WOD on our Sunday class and I’ve set time cap to 15 minutes as app recommended. Our results were following:

    • 6:41 – Me
    • 8:02
    • 9:35 – Good time to beat
    • 11:05 – Scaled
    • 11:13
    • 12:32
    • 12:41 – Scaled
    • 13:08
    • 14:40
    • 15:00 – Time Cap
    • 4+10

I am delighted about how accurate data from calculator are compared to the real results and I am still working on improving these numbers.
