It will be a fun weekend for sure. The absence of handstand push ups and snatches will at least allow me to feel good about myself at the end of the week. The only items I would ask for clarification on are the slamballs, KB snatches, and lunges. KB snatches: switch hands each rep, full squat snatch, two-hands, or anything goes? Lunges: plates, dumbbells, KB's, bar, and is it walking lunge or reset in same position? Slamballs: will it include a full layout to sit-up to stand to slam or just a standing slamball? questions im sure will be answered at the location but it never hurts to ask.

Really like the WODs, but seriously how many more Regionals are going to have a 1RM clean and jerk! The unknown and unknowable has basically become train for Metcons and get really strong in the C&J.
We still have deadlifts, front squats, back squats, overhead squats, thrusters, weighted pull-ups, and snatches that could test strength.

WOD's look really good guys, nice work! One questions:
-Are the KB snatches from the ground or swing? Also do you have to switch hands each rep and does it have to be 15 per arm?

Mike, maybe a different perspective can help clear this up. All of these sectionals are programmed by the organizers. They don't get to see what everyone else is doing, so yes there is a good chance that a lot of movements will show up in a lot of sectionals. I like that programmers are mixing traditional strength and power movements along with a few things that people have probably never trained with (sandbags, sleds, wt. vests, atlas stones). And I love your idea of training for metcons and getting really good at the C&J. You are right on, every client of mine who has improved their clean and jerk has also improved their squat, deadlift, snatch, metcons, running, and jumping. I think it's a great test of athleticism and would rather see it in every sectional than see organizers trying to get "too cute."
Good luck to everyone in the Carolina's!

I agree with Tommy. Being really good at clean and jerks helps prepare you for unknown and unknowable feats of strength. I also don't like it when Sectional organizers try to get "too cute". Perfect example, the sectional where they had to do 100 lateral hurdle hops. Not a good use of time when trying to send the fittest athletes to regionals.

The KB snatch will start as a KB swing and then drawn back and taken straight over the head. You can keep your legs extended or rebend the knees and hips. Remember if you rebend you must extend to make the lift complete. The 30 reps can be done with either arm. It's up to you.

Wow, that sandbag WOD is going to smoke the legs. Will we be allowed to use our own jump ropes for the chipper? Can't wait!

In sunday's WOD 3, "1 Rep max effort, ground to overhead - 10 minute time limit." Will you be allowed to use any method you like? It doesn't specify so I would assume a person could use strong man techniques such as the Continental?

WODs look great! My only question would be - on the GHD situps, I'm assuming it's 'touch the ground to touch the footpad', however I know on our GHD's at our box that I can't reach the ground from the GHD. Arms are too short! Will I be allowed to put a plate down to touch if that is the case on the day of? Thanks!

Jesse, The bar can only rest in the front rack position.

Angela, That would be considered scaling which would eliminate you from reaching regionals.

Chelsea, The GHD's will be set at the same height for everyone. You will be able to reach and touch your hand.

We had a guy training to be a ranger do a great tutorial on rope climbing-with the right technique we have seen average height males get up a 15' rope in 2 moves. It is posted at the crossfit cape cod channel on you tube. Have fun!

Dot and Polka, everyone will be using the the same equipment. Using your own may lead to your advantage. I am sure you can understand my concerns. Keep your own containers and rowers home. Thank you.

I wanted to say thank you to all of the people that volunteered their time to make this event happen. It was truly amazing. I want to also thank and congratulate all of the athletes that laid it on the line this weekend, you are all an inspiration to so many and are the driving force behind why CrossFit is becoming what it is. To Alan Moore... dude, you are not normal.... It was a true pleasure to watch you perform this weekend and when you get done at the games I will personally hand you that Yuengling. A personal shout out to the Athletes from CrossFit Cherry Point, Isaiah, Noelle, Markum, Christi, and of course Major J..... you guys left your hearts and souls out there on that floor and I couldn't be prouder of all of you. It was a pleasure coaching you and you are welcome at my box any time.
Again, thank you to all who were involved from the staff, athletes, vendors, spectators and everyone in between for making this one of the most memorable weekends of my life.
