In-House Throwdown!

It’s that time of year again where we test our fitness against those that we WOD with every day… The 4th annual CrossFit Southie In-House Throwdown will take place on Saturday, May 17th, so clear those calendars! This is a great opportunity for some friendly competition and lots of fun. We’ll have both scaled and Rx divisions available, so whether you’re a seasoned competitor or a first-timer, this is a great event for everyone to participate in.

Our plan is to run heats of the competition from 9am to 1 or 2pm in the afternoon. The exact timeline may change depending on the number of competitors we get to sign up, but we expect to wrap the competition up early in the afternoon so we have time for some fun activities and a cookout afterwards. It is guaranteed to be a fun day, and we hope you all can join us!

Don’t want to compete but still want to be involved? Awesome, we need your help! We’ll need lots of judged and volunteers to help the day run smoothly. If you can lend a hand, we’d very much appreciate it.

As we get closer to the event, we will release more details and workouts. For now, take a look at the standards below, see which division you fall into, and get signed up! We’re very excited about getting as many people as possible involved this year. Get pumped!

Rx Division: Thrusters 95/65, Snatches 115/75, Toes to Bar, Double Unders, Unassisted Pull Ups, Wall Balls 20/14 to a 10′ target
Scaled Division: Thrusters 65/35, Snatches 75/45, AbMat Situps, Single Unders, Blue Band Pull Ups, Wall Balls 14/10 to 10′ target

    6:03, 55# – awkward stringing the hangs together

    Excited about the throwdown! Would love to do Rx but 115lb snatches aren’t in my arsenal just yet. A few more months in the Olympic lifting class should do the trick though. Also just found out about a spartan race at Mohegan Sun on June 28 that I’m strongly considering. Enjoy the long weekend everyone.
