How Does Semifinal Programming from Week One Compare to Week Two? – Morning Chalk Up

Week 1 of the 2022 CrossFit Games Semifinals is in the books and week 2 is here. Today the focus is on evaluating the programming for the two Semifinals in week 2 and how they fit in and compare with the first three slates of workouts from week 1. (If you haven’t read the article linked here, it is recommended to do so. Many of these topics are discussed in more detail there.) 
Time Domains
When evaluating time domains, we are talking about expected time domains, not listed time caps. In the table below, we have updated the time caps (when needed) to reflect the actual times needed for the top 10 or so athletes in each event. In the case that it was notably different for men than women, the men are listed first followed by a slash and then the women. 
For the MACC and Cape Town columns, those are the projected expected times for each workout. 
A few noteworthy items: 
Handstand Push-Ups and Handstand Walking
Pretty straightforward for the next few sections; all we did was add in whether MACC and/or Cape Town had the listed movement and in what capacity.
Handstand walking:
Handstand Push-up Variations:
Squatting Volume:
Wall Balls
Overhead Squats/Squat Snatches:
Odd Objects:
Monostructural Elements:
The bottom line: As the Semifinals continue to unfold throughout the month, noting some of the critical differences in programming will become more and more fascinating to evaluate, and more clear questions will emerge about how relevant some of these decisions are. As always, do not be quick to judge until seeing how it unfolds in competition. However, there is nothing wrong with observing with a critical mind and making evaluations about programming nuances as we go.
