YouTube Doesn’t Like My CrossFit 18.1 Video

I haven’t uploaded a video to YouTube in like 5 months. Sorry for that, but I’ve been really busy and have been trying to learn how to use my new camera and video editing software.

Last week I filmed a video for CrossFit Beloit during the Open 18.1 workout in Beloit, WI. Excited to finally create and upload my content to YouTube, only to be discourage with the following message next time I logged in.

“We’ve removed this video because it violates our Community Guidelines.”

“Your ability to live stream has been revoked.”

Can someone from YouTube tell me what exactly is inappropriate about this video? What does this have to do with live streaming? Let the appeal process begin!

Check out some footage of CrossFit Beloit getting after 18.1 Friday night! 1 week down, 4 to go!

About CrossFit 18.1 Workout

This workout begins with the athlete standing on the floor under the pull-up bar. After the call of “3, 2, 1… go,” the athlete may jump up and perform toes-to-bars. After 8 reps are complete, the athlete will move to the dumbbell for hang clean and jerks. The athlete must complete 5 clean and jerks on one arm, then 5 on the other arm. He or she will then move to the rower and pull 14 calories (12 for women). The monitor must read 14 calories (12 for women) before the athlete can unstrap and move to the pull-up bar for the next round.

The athlete’s score will be the total number of repetitions completed within the 20-minute time cap. Each calorie completed on the row will be equal to 1 rep.


UPDATE: March 5, 2018, 7:03 a.m. CST: We’re back! YouTube emailed me this morning with the following message. “Thank you for submitting your video appeal to YouTube. After further review, we’ve determined that your video doesn’t violate our Community Guidelines. Your video has been reinstated and your account is in good standing.” Thanks YouTube!
