Old School Blastoff

Onsite Competition for Teams

Event description

2nd Annual 6 person team Old School Blastoff competition.

3 men and 3 women will compose the 6 person teams. All athletes should be able to meet the standards. However, teams who can play best to the strengths of their athletes will certainly find success. If you love the thrill of the unknown and figuring out game day competition strategy: this is the event for you! Know this now, not all workouts will be announced before the competition.

This is an old school style CrossFit team competition meaning, in part, that the team is stronger than the sum of its parts. Playing to the strengths of your team members, being able to communicate on the fly and executing your team strategy will prove to be important in negotiating the day's events. 

Get your team Rx team together and be prepared to put the best athlete(s) forward for the various workouts. Each team will complete 4 workouts. Top 5 teams advance to the finals.

Standards are not exclusive to the movements that will be seen. Not all will need to be able to perform all movements but you will need at least one male and one female to be able to complete:
Deadlift (225, 155)
Snatch (115, 75) for reps
Shoulder to Overhead (165, 105)
KBS (70, 53)
Pull Ups, Toes to Bar, HSPUs, Ring Dips, Double Unders

Scoring: For Time: Fastest is Better | Time Cap: 5

For time

40 Hang Power Snatch (95, 65)
50 Thrusters (115, 75)
60 Shoulder to Overhead (135, 95)

The workout starts with the barbell on the ground. 3-2-1 GO, one male and one female will stand the bar all the way up (hips, knees fully opened) and then can come back to the hang to begin the hang power snatch. Once the bar is up the bar CANNOT touch the ground until the full 150 reps are completed, or else a penalty will be assessed. When you switch out partners you will have to "rack" the bar, using your teammates as a human rack. Both athletes must do the same number of reps (they do not have to be synchronized) then both can switch out, using the a human rack. You could finish your set faster than your partner but then you must hold on to the bar until your partner does the same amount of reps as you did before switching out. One male and one female are always working at a time.
