New England Sectional Movement Standards
The workouts for the New England Sectionals have been announced. As the athletes prepare for the competition, strict guidelines have been lined out by the event organizers. They are covered here in detail.
Event 1 Saturday - "Pullin"
The 800 meter run is a street course. The athletes will leave through the garage, proceed around the building before tracing the path out and back. The snatches can be power snatches, split snatches or full snatches. Each lift must start from the ground and end in a full locked out position on top. Athletes must show control of the barbell before lowering the bar to the ground. Any deviations from these standards will receive a "no good," from the judge and will not count towards the athlete's total. There is a 15 minute time limit for this event.
Event 2 Saturday - "Fast and Furious"
The box jumps are 24" for the guys and 20" for the ladies. The athletes must have their entire foot on the box and they must have full hip extension on the box or above it. The chest must contact with the bar on pull-ups. The judge must see visible contact between that athletes chest and bar, and full arm extension at the bottom to count. Any doubt will go to "No Good." The athletes can use any technique they choose. All wall balls (men and women) will go to a ten foot target. The women will use a 14 pound ball and the men will use a 20 pound ball. The entire ball must be in the "black," and you must get to standard CrossFit depth at the bottom. There is a 15 minute time limit for this event.
Event 3 Sunday - "Serious 7"
The athletes have seven minutes to get their seven-rep-max squat clean. With each attempt the athlete has forty seconds to complete the seven reps. The athlete can do as many attempts as they need within the seven minutes to reach their seven-rep-max. These are full cleans that all start from the ground. The crease of the hip must pass below the knee on the "catch," and athletes must stand all the way up to full hip extension. The elbows must be out in front of the bar, and their hands must stay on the bar for all seven reps.
