CrossFit New England Throwdown

Didn't make it out to the Games in Aromas...Or maybe you did and now you have the itch to compete again. Here is your chance. We are hosting our second Throwdown on August 29th.

This competition is open to the public, but will be limited to the first 100 athletes who register.

2 WODs about 2 hours apart. Details of the events will be announced on the Wednesday before the event.

There will be three divisions
1. Big Dawgs
2. Pack
3. Pups

Which Division are you competing in?
Big Dawgs: Should be able to do CrossFit Rx or even scaled up.
Example: Complete a workout with 135 lbs thrusters (95 lbs for women) and chest to bar pull ups.

Pack: Should be able to do most CF wods with minimal scaling.
Example: 95 lbs thrusters (65 lbs for women) and kipping pull ups.

Pups: Can complete most CF wods, but always scales reps and/or weight.
Example: 65 lbs thrusters (45 lbs for women) and jumping/band assisted pull ups.


The event will be capped at 100 athletes. So sign up early.

Competition will be fierce. Most of the athletes that Qualified for the Games in the North East competed in our first Throwdown.

Everyone is encourage to compete... especially first timers. There will be a $15 registration fee.

Here is the link (w/f/s)

Re: CrossFit New England Throwdown

Yeah Wes, you're all set. We'll be sending out a confirmation email soon to all competitors.

60 spots gone...40 left.

The two wods have been created. It is difficult to test all 10 components of fitness over two workouts, but these two come pretty damn close.

Scoring:
The first place finisher will get 1 pt, second place 2 points and so on. Lowest score after both events wins. Ties will be determined by the lowest total time across both events. There will be awards for the top finishers in each division (Big Dawgs, Pack and Pups).

Breathe Fire, Raise Hell.

Re: CrossFit New England Throwdown

I'm super pumped for this.....Also a little nervous haha. If you've never trained at CFNE before, Ben comes up with some pretty evil stuff.

See everyone at the Throwdown! Beast mode on.
