Hydra Movement: Strength is just the beginning!
Hey its that time of the year again!
The CrossFit Games is upon us and we are participating in the open!
How do you ask?
Well, Athletes at the box have registered on the crossfit games website for the open and yup thats pretty much it.
So click here if you would like to register!
Now you might think, wait a min - what is the open? Well here is the short answer:
The 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games season begins with the online Open. Anyone can sign up to compete in five workouts over five weeks and post their scores online. Last year, the Open reached more than 209,000 athletes from around the world.
You can either perform the Open workout at a participating CrossFit affiliate where you will be judged in person, or you can film your full performance and upload it to YouTube or another video-sharing site. The video will be displayed alongside your score so other CrossFit athletes can be your judge.
Ok, So now thats convinced you and you're excited. Now what? Do I register? Well lets see, can you handle these 4?
Ok maybe I got a bit carried away but you will need a muscle up and a decently heavy snatch - 60kg for the men, 30kg for the women and (uh-oh) double unders.
Hmmm, ok not so excited anymore, I don't have half those movements. Thats A-ok! Why do you ask? Well because CrossFit HQ has released the scaled division in the open this year. You do not have to register for it (or pay for it). You just turn up to your affiliate (box - us in this case) and you complete the workout.
WOOHOO, NOW THAT EXCITING!
Ok maybe not CAPS exciting, but all the same woohoo!
Anyhoo, We will be running the Open WODs every Sat at 10am (9am Oly Class will run as Normal) and on Mondays at 6.30pm. Anyone who turns up to those classes will be expected to complete the given WOD (open/scaled) so that their scores can be submitted in time.
Well, thats the end of my essay. Have a lovely night and I will see you tomorrow or the day after I suppose ;)
