Follow the same pattern (increasing reps by 2) until you fail to complete the reps within the 2 minutes. If you finish the designated reps before the end of the 2 minutes, you must wait until the start of the next 2 minutes to begin the next set of the couplet.
Begin with a loaded barbell on the floor. Bumper plates must be used so that the barbell is elevated for the burpees. You must use a judge to ensure full range of movement (see Movement Standards below). Please fill out the attached scorecard and keep it for the duration of the competition in case of inquiry.
MEN/WOMEN MASTERS 50-59:
Same as above except 105/70 for the cleans.
MEN/WOMEN TEENS, MASTERS 60+:
Same as above except 95/65 for the cleans.
Adaptive athletes should contact Tony Kubitschek at firstname.lastname@example.org or (208) 841-4757 for specific movement substitutions.
Scoring / Submitting Your Score
This is an AMRAP and your score will be total reps completed. Use a judge during the workout to ensure full range of movement, and have a CrossFit Level 1 certified trainer validate your scores. You must submit your score before 5:00 pm Mountain Time on Saturday, August 1, 2015. Late scores will not be accepted–no exceptions! If you miss the deadline, you will remain in the competition, but receive a “zero” score for the workout. Results of the online workouts will count as 25% of your final score as well as determine your heat(s) for the live event on August 22. We are using a new online system for collecting scores this year. Please see our website for information on how to submit your score.
- One barbell (women’s 15 kg bar counts as 35# and men’s 20 kg bar counts as 45#)
- Collars (do not count towards weight)
- Bumper plates to load to the appropriate weight for your division
Bar-Over-Burpee (BOB) – Each BOB starts on one side of the barbell, through a full-range burpee, and ends once you jump over the barbell. At the bottom of the burpee, your chest and thighs must touch the floor and your head may not be over the barbell. You must jump over the barbell from both feet and land on both feet. One-footed jumping or stepping over is NOT permitted. There is no requirement for being perpendicular to and/or facing the barbell. You also do not have to stand all the way upright or clap overhead.
Clean – Movement standards are the same as for the 2015 CrossFit Open. The barbell begins on the ground. Touch-and-go is permitted. No bouncing. A muscle clean, power clean, squat clean, or split clean may be used, as long as the barbell comes up to the shoulders, with the hips and knees fully extended with the feet in line and the elbows in front of the bar.
Good luck to all athletes! Show BOB who’s boss!
