Santa Smackdown

So what better way then to try and motivate you to get into shape? Another Crossfit competition! We competed in the Santa Smackdown. I would like to say it really helped me get motivated to train like I used to, but sadly it did not. I did train as hard as I was able to, but I am just so out of my routine it makes working out hard.

The most important thing was that we had fun and that is all that counts. We all did our best and we finished in 9th out of 23 teams. Not bad for the 4 of us who have been struggling to get back into it. We had so much fun at this competition we are signing up for the Golden State Games in April! The sad part is we won’t be able to do the Fight For Air Climb which is an important organization to my heart.

The WODs:

WOD #1
4min (0:00-4:00)
1 Guy & 1 Girl establish
-3 RM OHS (1st rep must be a snatch variation)
**Directly into**
4min (4:00-8:00)
Guy 2 & Girl 2 establish
-1 Full (Squat) Clean + 1 Front Squat + 1 Jerk
Total weight lifted will be your team’s score

All athletes will use one 45lb bar for the lifting.

AFTER THE 8 MINUTE MARK YOUR TEAM WILL HAVE 2 MINUTES REST. AFTER THE 2 MINUTES YOUR TEAM WILL COMPLETE A TEAM MILE.

The team mile will be ran all together (All 4 athletes running at the same time). The score will be based on the fastest and slowest finishers. The fastest Mile time and the slowest mile time will be the score. The other 2 athlete’s times will be a non factor in the scoring.

WOD #2
400 Double Unders
100 Pull Ups
75 HSPU (Scaled have 25 Wall Walks)
50 Thrusters 135/95 (Scaled 95/65)

Floater
Max burpees
Max calorie airdyne
Max sled push

I will say it was a great competition since there were 3 WODs and we were finished by noon!

Here is a picture after we were done. Jumping for joy for finishing!
