The competition is right around the corner! I want to make sure everyone is up to speed on the logistics of how Saturday will run.
1) Plan on showing up at the office at 9am.
I will be using the scales in the doctor's office to weigh everyone
in. That means where as light clothing as possible. If a female
participant is uncomfortable with me weighing them in, Yvette and
Whitney will be here, so they can help with that aspect.
Eventually, in future events, weigh ins will be requiring the person to
strip down to their underwear. That will NOT be the case this time. You may wear shorts and a t-shirt, but please remove your shoes.
2) Every participant will also be judging someone's performance.
In this respect, the event will run much like local crossfit
competitions. You will be required to judge in order to compete. As a
judge, you will be responsible for counting the number of reps a person
completes, and "no rep-ing" them if they do not meet the standards
presented after weigh ins.
- After weigh ins, I will cover
the standards for judging the snatch, clean, and jerk. I will also
provide the materials used to judge at this time. Just like in any
competition, the judge has the final say in whether a rep counts or
not. Do not complain if you get "no repped." Ask why, fix the problem, and continue competing.
3) You will have time to warmup, between 9:30 and 9:45am. This is your time to get your body ready for the competition.
Foam roll, stretch, use the kettlebells...and ASK FOR HELP from me if you want last minute coaching advice!
4) The competition officially starts at 10am.
Currently, there are about 8 people competing. That means that the
competition will likely be done within 1 hour. After I have the
results, I will award first, second, and third place prizes to the
participants. They are broken down into gender, weight classes, and
suggest bringing something light to snack on, perhaps a shake, to be
certain your blood sugar does not drop during your competition!
