Mark your calendars to join us for CrossFit Southie’s seventh annual Southie Showdown on November 11 & 12, 2017. This is a two-day individual competition designed to challenge first-time competitors, fire-breathers, and everyone in between. Our new format of three divisions allows you to compete and test your limits against similar athletes. This will be one of the last chances to compete in the crisp fall air before winter rolls in! 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. Last year’s addition of the Advanced Division 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. Several of the podium finishers from the 2016 Advanced Division went on to compete to the 2017 CrossFit Games on teams or in the Masters division. We’re looking forward to what the 2017 Showdown will bring.
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. More specific standards may be announced as the event gets closer.
