On Wednesday we posted on the CFS site about becoming a toasty. Below we have posted the minimum requirements. I think these requirements are pretty nice, and I think that most of you will agree. Those of you that started before we put these out there are considered to be “grandfathered” in.
This is a competitor program, and we believe you should have to work hard to earn your place in such a program. The number of you has grown significantly since January and we could not be more thrilled. However, the more of you there are the more others want to get in on the fun, and so we have to set some entry standards.
Thus, if you read this list and find that you are falling short, you have 3 months to meet these standards.
You must be able to complete 10 out of the 12 requirements:
1. Squat Snatch (115,80) – This must be one fluid movements, no power snatch and then overhead squat.
2. 10 consecutive Chest to Bar pull-ups- Men/10 consecutive Kipping pull-up women- Both without assistance
3. Ring Dip- 10 unassisted-Men/1 Unassisted-Women
4. 500m Row-1:45 Men/2:05 Women
5. 1 Mile Run- Sub 8:00 Men/Sub 9:00 Women
6. 1 Handstand Push-up-Men/Ability to kip up on to the wall/bands-Women
7. 15 foot Rope climb
8. Toes to Bar- 10 without dropping down from the bar-Men/5 without dropping off the bar-Women
9. Wallballs- 10 reps to a 10ft target with a 20lb ball- Men/10 Reps to a 10 ft target with a 14lb ball
10. Kettlebell Swings-2pood for 5 reps-Men/1.5pood for 5 reps-Women
11. 10 Consecutive Double Unders
12. Pistols with no gripping assistance (can still use a ball, box, or plate under the heal)
Then we have some nonnegotiable requirements

- Must be able to complete the WODs with the Open weight (which usually means the class RX weights)
- Actively CrossFitting for 6+ months
- Upholding all of the movement standards without constant corrections. You should want to uphold movement standards, you shouldn’t have to be constantly told.
You must show that you are a smart athlete. Choosing weights that are appropriate for you and knowing when to scale.
