The 2010 CrossFit Games Season has begun. This coming weekend, CrossFit TNT will host the season opening Midwestern Sectional at their new box in St. Charles, Missouri. Contained in this post are Saturdays events, heat breakdowns by athlete name and schedule of events.
Heats were created by the order in which you registered. In other words, the first athlete to register will be in the last heat of the first event, and the last athletes registered will be competing in the first heat. Ten male and ten female athletes will go in each heat until all competitors have completed the event.
WOD 1: “THE AIR FORCE WOD”
20 Sumo deadlift high pulls
20 Push jerks
20 Overhead squats
20 Front squats
Men will use a 95lb barbell. Women will use 65lbs. Each athlete must do four burpees at the beginning of every minute before moving on to the barbell work. The athlete is allowed to move to the next barbell skill once an he/she has completed all 20 reps. If the minute clock beeps during a repetition the athlete will complete their rep and then start their four burpees. There is a 20min cap.
The athlete is allowed to rest the entire minute once he/she has completed his/her burpees. If an athlete decides to scale down his/her WOD or does not finish in the allowed time the athlete will be given a DNF. Judges are looking for full range of motion (ROM) on all skills, which will be explained at the event.
Complete as many repetitions in five minutes as you can of:
Clean and overhead
Men will use a 155lb barbell, women 105lbs. You must start from the ground and have the bar in rack position before jerking it. You can press, push press, push jerk, or split jerk to get it up.
