The Day 1 individual workouts for the 2014 CrossFit Regionals have just been released.
HQ revealed the details a short time ago and just like last year, we will be seeing three Events on the first day of competition.
Events 1 & 2 will be held back to back with just a two-minute break in between both, while Event 3 will be later in the day.
Here is a closer look at all three workouts:
Event 1: 1-Rep-Max Hang Squat Snatch
Both men and women will be given three attempts to establish their heaviest 1-rep-max hang squat snatch. Once the Event begins athletes will have two minutes to load weight onto their bar and attempt their first lift. They are then not allowed to lift again until after the two-minute mark. Athletes will have another attempt to lift between the two and four-minute marks, and then once again after the four-minute mark. Athletes may not decrease the weight after a failed attempt.
After the six-minute time cap, there will then be two-mintues of rest before the commencement of Event 2.
Event 2: Max Distance Handstand Walk
Athletes will walk on their hands as far as possible in a three-minute time cap. Competitors will be given two ‘false starts’ if their feet touch the ground before they reach the 10 feet mark. If an athlete makes it the full 120 feet distance to the other side of the stadium, they will be allowed to come down onto their feet, turn around, and begin their return.
Event 3: Nasty Girls V2 – 3 Rounds for Time: 50 One-Legged Squats, 7 Muscle-Ups, 10 Hang Cleans (175/115lb)
Athletes must complete all reps in their designated lane within the 16-minute time cap.
HQ have also released full video demonstrations of the workouts. You can check them out below, or read the full workout descriptions by clicking here.
