Wow. The time is here. More than 3 weeks before the 2011 Regionals are to be held, CrossFit has released the workouts that will be given to athletes to perform at the event! I did not personally qualify for the event (I placed 79th in my Region, and only top 60 advanced), but my stomach still turned as I scrolled down the page in anticipation for what our “Southwest Region” athletes (and all other athletes around the world) would need to do to try and Qualify for the Big Dance: The 2011 CrossFit Games.

Straight from the CrossFit Games Website, here is the breakdown of how the show will go!

“The 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games Regional season begins on May 27 with four locations. They will take place from Friday to Sunday. Each of the three competitions (Individual Men, Individual Women, and Teams) will have two workouts per day.

Scoring for Regionals will be similar to the Open. The score for a given workout is their ranking for that workout (one point per place, low score is better). Scores for each workout are added together to get the overall score. At the end of the six workouts, athletes and teams with the lowest scores are the winners.”

At the very least, athlete’s know they will only need to perform TWO workouts per day over the course of the three-day event!

Are you ready for the Workouts?! Here we go:

-For the Individual Competition-

1000m Run

A team must complete all of the Pull-ups at the rig, then complete all of the Kettlebell swings, then all of the Double-unders, then all of the Overhead squats. There is no set rotation needed among the athletes. A team’s result is their total time to complete this chipper.

Ring muscle-up

Teams of 2 (1 man, 1 woman). The man does 9 snatches then the woman does 9 snatches with a separate barbell. Then the man does 9 muscle-ups, then the woman does 9 muscle-ups, etc. The pattern continues until they both have completed the couplet. A team’s result is their total time to complete the couplet.

20 Calorie row
30 Burpees
30 Dumbbell ground-to-overhead (45lb / 25lb)
30 Toes-to-bar
100 foot Overhead walking lunge (45lb plate / 25lb)
50 foot sprint

“Teams of 4 (2 men, 2 women). All four athletes perform the entire workout. The first athlete enters and completes the Row. When that athlete has completed the row, they move on to Burpees, and the second athlete may begin the Row. This pattern continues, in order, through all of the movement. No athlete can begin their next station until the athlete ahead of them is clear from that station. A team’s result is the total time for all 4 members to go through the workout.” ~ Taken directly from the Website.

      I agree! It looks like SO much fun!! We should do our own “Mini-Regionals” over the course of 3 days!

      • G-DUB says:

        Agreed…. “Mini-Regionals….for those who used correct ROM and should have made it to Regionals”

        P.S. by no means does that statement apply to me haha

        🙂

        Things will work themselves out in the end. Going from 3,253 to 3,220 is irrelevant in the “Grand Scheme” of things, remember? It will be amazing to watch some of the fittest athletes in the WORLD compete in our Region, though!
