In-House Oly Meet
It’s time to throw some weights around with your friends at the 2018 In-House Oly Meet!
While this is not an official USAW-sanctioned event, this meet is a great opportunity for you to test yourself in a new way. This is perfect for first-timers or those who are looking for some practice on the platform before taking on an official meet. All ability levels are welcome!
Unlike many CrossFit competitions where the events are unknown, an oly meet will always be the same: 3 attempts at a max snatch and 3 attempts at a max clean and jerk. We’ll be following IWF standards for the competition, so that means no “ugly” lifts”: no press outs, no dropping to a knee, etc.
Unlike most oly meets, you won’t compete in a weight class, though you will still have to weigh in. Your totals (best snatch + best clean & jerk) will be scored according to the Sinclair Coefficient – a method used in the weightlifting world to equalize totals across weight classes. Essentially, it removes the advantage for larger lifters over the little guys. You’ll all compete on an equal playing field and the best Sinclair Total wins! Get those singlets ready!
As an added bonus, we’ll be adding a layer of team competition to the event as well. All participants will be divided as fairly as possible into two teams: Team Dan vs. Team Yosh. Your best lifts will help your team… and word on the street is that Dan and Yosh will be lifting themselves!
Please click HERE to sign up. We hope to see many of you here for some friendly competition. If you need some extra prep, just a reminder that Oly class happens every Wednesday night at 7pm and Saturday afternoon at 11am. Join us!
