Crosstown Throwdown 2014

Welcome to the Third Annual Crosstown Throwdown Competition series! The series will run as an online competition from July 27th, 2014 and end with a final live event to be held at TBD place in Eagle on August 23rd, 2014. We will post a WOD on Sunday morning each week for 3 consecutive weeks, for which you will have until that following Saturday to complete and send in your results via your Box Lead.

Our mission is to bring our Idaho CrossFit community together, encourage friendly competition, cheer on our friends and make new ones. Above all, we want this to be fun for everyone! Peruse the site, register to compete and get ready for the competition to begin on July 27th, 2014!

Please feel free to e-mail suggestions to info@crosstownthrowdown.com by the deadline.

Please note: We have made a few changes since last year, such as validating scores, registration fee and scoring.

Please also note: You will no longer be able to post comments on the Crosstown Throwdown website.

Info for Final Event

First of all thank you to everyone who is currently competing, volunteering, or sponsoring the 2013 Throwdown.  This event would not be a success without your support!

The final event is this Saturday.  Every competitor will be receiving an official Evite to compete in the final WOD.  You will need to RSVP so we know you are coming.  The Evite will look something like this……

Congratulations – you have earned a spot to the 2013 Crosstown Throwdown.  You have the option to decline or accept this invitation.  If you are not attending please decline.  If you know you are attending please accept this invitation by clicking the 3..2..1..GO!  Athlete’s will check in at 8 a.m. First WOD will go off at 9 a.m. We will have a CF Teen’s and Kid’s WOD, from 11 – 12.  Then we resume the 2nd half from 12 – 2 p.m. Food will be available for all competitors and volunteers.  A food ticket can be purchased for $5 for family and friends.  Your CTTD T-shirts will be available the day of the event – or at CrossFit Station Monday 8/26.  We must have an official head count by Tuesday 8/20.

**UPDATE** We’ve had a few questions about the schedule on Saturday, so here’s a tentative breakdown…..

Participant check-in will be from 8-9 AM. The first heat of the first WOD will kick off promptly at 9 AM. Heats will go in this order: Women’s Modified, Women’s 50+, Women’s 40+, Women’s Rx, Men’s Modified, Men’s 50+, Men’s 40+, Men’s Rx. The first WOD will run until about 11:00 AM. We’ll then have a break until 12:00 PM. The first heat of the second WOD will begin promptly at 12:00 PM. Heats will go in the same order as for WOD 1. We’ll try to wrap everything up by 2:00 PM.

Hope this helps!

WOD 3 2013

ALL DIVISIONS

5 Min AMRAP
Squat Clean
Jerk
Everyone will choose their own weight for this workout. Your score will be total lbs moved. For example: If you choose 100 lbs and get 50 reps, your score will be 5000 lbs.  You cannot change weight during the workout.  If you use a barbell, the bar only needs to come down to mid-shin to begin a new rep.
Standards
In this movement, the barbell goes from ground to overhead with the athlete passing through a full squat position while the barbell is racked on the shoulders. This can be a full-squat-clean-thruster, a power-clean-front-squat-splitjerk, or anything in between as long as the three key positions are reached.  Athletes get no credit for a partial rep. If an athlete gets the squat clean and then fails a jerk, they don’t have to redo the squat, only complete the jerk and then go on to the next rep.

The barbell begins on the ground. Touch and go is permitted. No bouncing.

The athlete must pass through a full squat with hips below knees.

The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the heels.
