We will be hosting the Final Event for the Crosstown Throwdown so we will not be open for our regular hours.  Come on by and support the event and athletes if you have time.  Amee, Lily, Kelsy, Shay, Sarah, Samantha, Nat, Wayne, and Denny will be competing.  Good Luck to all. Hey, everyone! We are posting WOD #1 of the Final Event so that you can prepare yourselves for this first event. We will begin heats at 9:00 a.m. and plan to cycle through every 5 minutes. Therefore, it is critical that everyone is on time and prepared to adjust their barbells with the proper weights for their respective heats.

WOD #1 of the Final Event (Saturday, February 18)

2 Minute AMRAP of The Bear Complex at your chosen weight. Each Bear Complex consists of 6 reps as follows: 1 deadlift 1 power clean 1 front squat 1 press (or push press or push jerk) (rack bar on back) 1 back squat 1 press (or push press or push jerk)

Details:  You will have 2 minutes to perform as many reps as possible of the above complex.

Scoring:  Your score will be based on number of reps completed x total weight used.  Example: 66 reps x 65 lbs = 4,290.

Standards:

Deadlift – The barbell must be lifted from the ground, hips and knees need to be fully extended.

Power Clean – The barbell must retouch the ground to begin the power clean.  The clean is complete when the hips and knees are fully extended and the bar is on the shoulders in the “rack position.”

Front Squat – Barbell needs to remain in the “rack position.”  Hip crease needs to be at or below the knee.

Press (or push press or push jerk) - Arms need to be fully extended above the head and the head needs to be through so that ears are not visible behind the arm.

Back Squat – Barbell needs to be racked on the back.  Hip crease needs to be at or below the knee.

Press (or push press or push jerk) - Arms need to be fully extended above the head and the head needs to be through so that ears are not visible behind the arm.

After the complete complex, you may drop the bar from the top once the judge okay’s the last rep, but you cannot pick up the bar until it has stopped moving.  If you do not drop the bar, you must retouch the ground before beginning the next complex.  You must perform the deadlift first on each complex, however, you may combine the power clean, front squat and press (or push press or push jerk) and you may combine the back squat and press (or push press or push jerk).  If you are at the bottom of a squat when time is called, you will not receive that rep as the rep is not finished until you stand.  If the judge gives you a “no-rep” on any movement, you must repeat that movement before you can move on to the next.  For instance, if you perform your front squat and stand but the the judge calls it a “no-rep”, before you can perform the press, you must repeat the front squat to the desired depth.

Here is our Tentative Heat Schedule based on the WODs we have programmed and the Tentative Heat Line-Up based on the responses to attendance (and assumed responses).  All divisions will perform WOD #1 and WOD #2 and only the RX division will perform WOD #3, however, WOD #3 may also be used as a tie breaker for the Masters and Modified divisions.

See new post for updated Heat Schedule and Line-Up.

Scoring at the Final Event will be based on the same point system used in the online portion.  If you are not there to perform in your heat, you will receive a DNF and be disqualified from continuing.  We appreciate your cooperation in making this a smooth-running event and we hope everyone has fun!
