Why did the Women outperform the Men on CrossFit Open 13.1?

13_1_results

The average Female completed 5 more reps on 13.1 than the average Male. This is primarily due to the lighter than normal Female weights. Traditionally, in a workout like Isabel, the ladies would be using 95#, but in 13.1 they were prescribed 75# instead. Contrast this with the fact that the average Female Rx’d Isabel time is 33 seconds slower than the average male time. This leads me to conclude that the ideal female loading for 135# would be somewhere between 75# and 95#.
