CrossFit Total – January 2014

CFD will host an in house CrossFit Total for our athletes on Saturday, January 4th!

Though set up as a competition, this event is designed specifically for ALL OF YOU! Special equipment not required and everyone is already very familiar with the lifts! Everyone should sign up to participate! It’s FREE!

The three lifts will be the Back Squat, Press, and Deadlift. This event is only open to CFD athletes, coaches, and special invitees. No special equipment is required, but weightlifting shoes are encouraged.  See the official rules here, but, note, we’ll be a bit less formal.

A bad ass trophy to show off lifting prowess will be awarded to our Top Pound For Pound Male and Female lifter, but this is more about setting PRs than winning a trophy.  This means EVERYONE has a chance to compete for the trophy regardless of body weight.

We will use multiple platforms and racks for this event, but everyone will lift in ascending order (weight on the bar) and all lifts will be judged by a referee.  Beginning with the Back Squat, the weight will start at the lowest declared attempt, and move up from there until every competitor has completed their 3 attempts. We will then move on to the Press, and then to the Deadlift. Additional platforms and racks will be set up for staying warm between lifts.

Spectators, photographers, and cheerleaders are all welcome, and encouraged!

This event is being held at the very end of our latest 6 week strength cycle and at the start of the New Year!  It will be a great opportunity to set PRs and challenge yourself under a bit more formal setting than just our everyday workouts. Our primary goal is to have fun, push each other, and see some big PRs! You’ll be surrounded by friends…go big!

There is NO FEE to participate. There is NO minimum weight that you need to lift to participate. There is NO excuse for anyone to skip this event!
