I ran upon a post and I can't remember who but they mentioned completing fitness level one. I looked on the FAQ page and ran upon this link . work and family safe. http://www.crossfitseattle.com/athletic_skill.html
This is good stuff. It is going to give me a concrete goal. It seems that some of the weights are not listed for level 1. Under work / kettlebell swings = 25 no weight listed. Also no wall ball weight listed. Are there standards for these that I don't know about? Christine has 12 deadlifts, no weight and 21 box jumps no height. I am sure there is a listing for "Christine" somewhere. Thanks in advance for the help.

Yeah, I think the weight standards for those are posted on the CF main page, under FAQ.

Robert, if you do a search for the CrossFit North Athletic Standards you will come across a number of threads which discuss the exact implementation of the standards. from memory many of the level one skills were less focused on load and more about proper execution.

Christine as Rxed on the FAQ does specify loads etc but this wasn't necessarily required to achieve level one. In your search, pay particular attention to posts from Dave Werner, one of the men responsible for compiling the Athletic Standards

Figured it might be a tough find so here is the best answer I have seen to your question (WS/FS)

Men kb is 24kilos, women is 16kilos. On the pdf that shows all skills it states this.

Isn't the typical med ball 20 pounds by Dynomax?
