Good max box jump/C&J for women?

What would good numbers be for a woman on max box jump and max clean and jerk?
I am entering a small local comp and want to know if I will be competitive.
I have a 32-35" box jump and 115-125 pound C&J.

Does that mean those are the two movement's being tested in the competition, or is there any other reason you picked out those two?

Max box jump is all over the place, and one of those rarely tested things, so it's hard to say. In general for both I would put you on the HIGH end (i.e. good numbers) for an average crossfitter who is just working out, but on the low end for a competitive crossfitter. So, it will probably depend a great deal on the pool of competitors.

Thanks, yes they are two events at the competition. That's kind of what I figured. I checked last years open competitors that made it to regionals and their C&J numbers were between 115 and 175. :/
At least I know I have lots of room to improve!

Does anyone know if competitions let you run up to the box (step step launch) or just start from 2 feet in front of the box?

Any good references for clean and jerk form/tutorials online?

Competition standards are going to be completely different at every competition you go to, so I couldn't even begin to tell you what will be the movement standards there. If you want to be competitive, you should prepare for both possibilities.

An elite level box jump is 70% or greater of your height.
