As the question suggests, just wondering why WOD demos are no longer being posted on the mainsite.

No earthly idea.  There was a time a while back when they didn’t post ANYTHING but the wod.  This is kind of a reversion to that.  Also, they don’t tell us anything about what they do or why…

There’s a reason they don’t call it “Fight Gone Good”.

I was going to post about this too but forgot. Most of those demos had great insights and coaching tips that always helped a great deal.

precisely.  In the absence of the WOD it’s also difficult to determine what one’s time should be in the case a timed workout comes up.

If you follow along a day or more behind the posted WOD it is quite easy to see representative times/scores.

The same sources of information can give you an estimate of the target times for WODs.

Take a look at the Underdawg times.
If there isn’t an Underdawg time listed for this WOD, take a look at the times others posted on the mainsite and the CF WOD forum here the last time this came up. Discard the very fastest and very slowest and any results not done as rx’ed.
Average the rest and you’ll get an approximate time to shoot for.

There’s quite a good discussion on several points related to this here http://www.crossfitbrandx.com/index.php/forums/viewthread/4154/P0/.
Then TP and I get involved and it all goes downhill.
