November 10 & 11 // 3 Divisions
Mark your calendars to join us for CrossFit Southie’s seventh annual Southie Showdown on November 10 & 11, 2018. This is a two-day individual competition designed to challenge first-time competitors, fire-breathers, and everyone in between. Our format of three divisions allows you to compete and test your limits against similar athletes. There will be five guaranteed events over the two days for everyone, and a final event for the top Advanced & Rx Competitors.
Our goal is provide a fun, fair, and challenging competition for all levels of competitors – from total newbies to Regional and Games athletes. The addition of the Advanced Division has made the competition even more fierce on all levels and gave some of the area’s best athletes a chance to throw down against one another before heading into Open season. We’re looking forward to what the 2018 Showdown will bring!
Contemplating which division is right for you? Please see below for suggested movement standards in each of these divisions. Please note, these are simply suggestions and are not the only movements you will see during the competition. The weights listed should be able to be completed for reps, not a one rep max. There will be certain components to some workouts that will reward athletes who are proficient in higher skill movements; however, if you can hit the standards above, you will be able to compete in every event in some way.
