What about Masters Novice

For now Masters Novice athletes or those new to the sport or just casual competitors are encouraged to enter the 'Novice' Category. This category is designed for everyone and will include scaling options. This may be granted its own category should there be a viable number of competitors. Those athletes eligible will be moved

The category designed for those who don't quite fit the RX or Novice category we want you to have the opportunity to get involved also. 

The intermeditate category will feature RX movements with the option to scale them if needed too:

Pull Ups / Chest to bar / Muscle Ups = Jumping options
Reduction in weight during the workouts

Novice

We want EVERYONE to have the opportunity to compete, whether you are a first-timer, new to crossfit or just a casual competitor this is the category for you

This category will be ‘Scaled’ and will feature movements like the below examples:

Double Unders = Single skips
Toes to bar = Knee raises
Handstand press ups = Hand release push ups
Pull Ups = Jumping Pull Ups
Reduction in weight & increased time during the workouts

NB FOR ALL CATEGORIES

All categories apart from RX can scale the workout as necessary but if the scaling option is not the one advised it may impact your score on the leaderboard. Athletes must record their workouts on their mobile device and upload this when submitting their score. The preferred method would be to use to WODProof App available on iOS or Android

Should I enter RX or Intermediate? 

As a general rule of thumb if you can perform the below movements then the RX category is for you and if not then the Intermediate category is the one for you this year:

Muscle Up (Bar or ring)
80/50kg+ Snatch (1 RM)
10+ HSPU
110/70kg+  Clean (1 RM)
160/100kg+ Deadlift (1RM)

However muscle ups may appear in the intermediate category
