The Open starts next week.  This year there are not prerequisites to take the judges course.  The cost is $10 and the amount of information you’ll learn regarding what is acceptable movement and what isn’t will help us  keep the standards as high as possible during the Open. Also I feel that it’s a great way to get everybody involved as a community in Thor Fitness. Here’ the thing, judging is difficult.  Telling your friends that what they just did is a no rep and therefore doesn’t count is difficult to do, but it HAS to be done.  As athletes performing the movement, simply follow the standards and you won’t have to worry your reps being questioned or not counted.  Pretty simple really.  The link to the Judges Course is HERE.
