By functional, do you mean being able to walk?
I'll be watching to see how this works out, but it'll be more like a morbid curiousity. Like when you stop to watch a train wreck.
Doesn't it stand to reason that short term equalization won't be possible for this? Not without actual training for the "event"?
This kind of idea may be the first time someone enters true over training, requiring weeks or months to recover, in only one day.
Like was noted earlier, 8 wods in two days of Games competition crushed the field. 24 wods in one day, even scaled should do much worse. As Garrett said, it's the bad stuff that gets attention.
You would think that when that Navy guy was disabled it would have spurred change. Instead it spurred the RRG, and the ultimate in low brow, a named workout.
And if you don't think kettleball squat cleans are difficult, I say, step up to the med-ball
