Garage Games Update


The North East Garage Games is a three event series that will be held this fall at CrossFit New England, Crossfit Milford in CT, and here at CrossFit Southie.  You can sign up for one event or compete in all three.

The first event of the series will be held at CFNE on September 24-25 (all day saturday, should be done earlier on sunday)
There will be 2 Division (Scaled and RX), everyone does 4 wods (3 saturday + 1 sunday).  The top 6 men and women will compete in a fifth and final wod.

Info on the divisions…
If you are trying to decide which division to sign up for use these guidelines.

RX Divison  – you should be able to power clean (155, 105) for several reps in a wod.
Scaled Division  – should be able to power clean (115, 80) for several reps in a wod.

Do not worry about other high skill movements (muscle ups, hspu’s, etc..).  If you use the above as a guideline you will find yourself in the right division.

Currently there are 165 athletes signed up, already more than last year’s Beast of the East Competition.
If you are not signed up yet and want to get in on the action, sign up here .  Registration closes September 12, or at 250 athletes, which ever comes first.

If you are on the fence, please speak with one of the coaches.  We will be having a competitors meeting next week to talk about how to prepare for the games.
