PROVING GROUNDS by Reebok CrossFit 306

Event description

A one of a kind competition inspired by the CrossFit Open. This competition is for everyone; from beginners to elite. Four workouts will be released on Thursday Nov 26th and Thursday Dec 3rd at 5pm. Score submissions will be due the following Monday at 5pm for each of the two weeks (total of 8 scored events).

Divisions available are (male & female):

Elite Teens (ages 13 - 17 as of November 26, 2020)
Elite Open (ages 18 - 39 as of November 26, 2020)
Elite Masters (ages 40 & over as of November 26, 2020)
Open (everyone!) -a “scaled” version of each WOD will be released with the option for athletes to chose*
*similar to the CrossFit Open, all “scaled” scores will be scored lower than “Open” scores. Athletes may chose to do any one or combination of workouts as Open or scaled. Scoring will reflect option chosen.

 

All Elite divisions will be non-scaled and high skilled. Workouts for the “Elite Teen” and “Elite Masters” division will model past “Age Group Online Qualifier” in terms of loading, volume and skill. “Elite Open” division will model past “Regionals” in terms of loading, volume and skill. The “Open” division is for everyone. Intermediate level athletes can expect to see movements similar to the “Crossfit Open”. There will also be a “scaled” option for each workout. An athlete can chose to complete any movement standard and/or workout following whichever option they want. Like the “Crossfit Open”, if any movement/workout is completed with the scaled option, it will be scored lower than “open” option.

Equipment lists will be provided to all participants two weeks in advance to make it accessible to everyone even if you can’t get in to a gym to perform the workouts.
