CrossFit HQ have just announced the details of the first event of the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games, which is a 1-rep maximum overhead squat.
As CrossFit states, “The individual competitors will get three chances to establish their max at the tennis stadium on Wednesday night, July 23.”
That said, it does not mean Dave Castro could still not surprise the athletes with an event prior to this.
It was just over a week ago when it was announced on CrossFit’s Instagram (see video below) the Games would be starting at the beach. So it’s likely the day will commence with a beach swim and end with the max overhead squat. What happens in between and or before both of these events is still unknown.
In any case, a 1-rep maximum overhead squat will certainly make for a fantastic spectator event. The Rx Review will be there live so make sure you check our site for all your Games info.
