If you’ve been following the Olympic Weightlifting Club Programming, you’ll have noticed we peak every 6 weeks and try for some new PBs as we max-out our lifts. Well, your 6 weeks are almost up! Only this time we’re running a Weightlifting-style competition including all the medals and glory. There will be medals for top 3 Female and top 3 Male Athletes.
It will be scored on the “Sinclair System,” which is a clever equation that takes bodyweight into account before giving you your final score. We will also take into account ‘Masters’ Lifters those of you 35 and over ( yep, sorry to say you’re called a master). I will be judging it by weightlifting standards; so no ‘CrossFit lifts’ (e.g. no press outs). However, power cleans and power snatches will be fine, so don’t worry if you struggle to hit full depth sometimes.
The competition starts at 12:30, when you will be weighed in (in private) and then asked for your opening lifts. The first lifts will be at 13:00 with a warm-up area in the back room. You will have 3 attempts at the Snatch then 3 attempts at Clean and Jerk taking your highest total out of the 3 of each and adding together to be given a ‘total’. Example:
Joe Snatch Attempts: 60/65/67x
Joe Clean & Jerk attempts: 85/95x/95
His Best Snatch was 65 as he missed his last attempt and his best Clean & Jerk was 95 after missing it once.
Joe’s Total: 160
It’s a no-pressure, fun afternoon, just like we do in class times where we cheer everyone on for their PBs; only this time it could lead to winning a medal.
This competition is open to all: any current CrossFit London or CrossFit SE11 member. Even if you are not regular attendees of the WLC, you are welcome to participate.
Date: Saturday 3rd December 2016
