This competition is meant for all skill levels and we hope that everyone can participate. The deadline to register is June 8th. Click HERE to sign up.
Here’s a little taste of what to expect at the Throwdown… announcing WODs 1 & 2!
5 minutes to lift as many pounds as possible.
As a team, choose one weight from the following options:
135, 115, 95, 75
The weight on the bar will remain the same the entire workout. The team will work together to lift as many pounds as possible within the 5 minutes. Each athlete must perform the movement designated to their division:
Rx Male – Snatch
Rx Female – Clean & Jerk
Scaled Male – Clean & Jerk
Scaled Female – Deadlift
Athletes will establish an order and must stay in that order for the entire workout. Each athlete must perform at least 1 rep before rotating. Athletes must rotate every 10 reps, if not sooner.
Score = total reps x weight on barbell
1 minute to transition to Rower for Event 2
7 minute row for Max Calories
Teams will establish an order and must stay in order for the entire workout. Athletes must switch every 15 calories for guys / 10 calories for girls. The athlete coming off of the rower must complete 5 burpee lateral hops over the barbell before the next athlete can begin rowing. The athlete next in line can begin getting on the rower and strapping in while his/her teammate performs burpees. The rower does not need to be reset each time.
Score = total calories rowed
Snatch – Barbell must move from the ground to overhead in one motion. Full lockout of knees and hips must be shown at the top. Any type of snatch is permitted.
Clean & Jerk – Barbell must clearly stop at the shoulders and finish overhead with arms locked out, head through, and full lockout of knees and hips. Feet must finish together and beneath the hips. Any type of clean and jerk is permitted.
Deadlift – Barbell must start with both plates touching the ground. At the top, shoulders finish behind the bar with full extension of knees and hips. The barbell may be dropped from the top. Bouncing the barbell is not allowed.
Burpee Lateral Hops – Chest must make contact with the floor. Jump from two feet to the other side of the bar. If you mess up the jump, you can redo the jump without redoing the burpee. Stepovers are allowed in the scaled division.
Every 3 Minutes for 21 minutes complete the following complex:
1 Power Clean
1 Hang Squat Clean
1 Split Jerk
