The first day of the Rocky Mountain Regional Qualifier went well, with amazing performances throughout the day- male, and female. They were tested with some grueling workouts. Sunday's WOD is sure to continue in that fashion.
Skip Miller of Front Range CrossFit revealed the workout after the final Men's Heat. The WOD gives each competitor a choice in how they would like to complete it.
For Men, they must lift a barbell Ground to Overhead, in any way they wish, for 7000lbs.
The athletes are able to choose which weight they would like. Their options:
155 x 46 reps
135 x 52 reps
95 x 74 reps
75 x 94 reps
For Women, they must lift a barbell Ground to Overhead, in any way they wish, 5000lbs.
For the women, their choices break down to the following:
100 x 50 reps
85 x 59 reps
65 x 77 reps
55 x 91 reps
No matter which option the athlete chooses, they will all be trying to get the weight overhead, using Clean & Jerk, Snatch, Press, or Thruster. It will certainly be a challenging and exciting event. For more information, check out the CrossFit Front Range site.
