The Crossfit Games is an international tournament. It starts out with qualification for the chance to compete in the regional events. The qualification rounds consist of five workouts over five consecutive weeks. The content of the workouts is published on the Wednesday, and the test has to be completed by the Sunday of that week.
|Jolaine = Determination Personified|
The first workout, named 13.1, consisted of:
17 minute AMRAP of:
30 Snatch, 75 / 45 lbs
30 Snatch, 135 / 75 lbs
30 Snatch, 165 / 100 lbs
AMRAP means "as many repetitions as possible" in the time allowed.
|Jolaine is 5'1" tall - her 20" box jump is amazing!|
10 minute AMRAP of:
5 Shoulder to overhead lifts 115 / 75 lbs
10 Deadlifts 115 / 75 lbs
15 Box jumps 24 / 20 inch
(Jolaine did over 300 reps!)
I'm hoping to get back to the gym for the next three Saturdays, so that I can shoot our local athletes challenge ALL the tests!
The full collection of photos will be available on my website soon!
