New England Sectional

New England WODs and Schedule

The New England sectional is this weekend, March 20-21st. After some deliberation, the WODs have been rubber stamped and ready for competitor's eyes, here's what they will be dealing with throughout the weekend as well as a look at the schedule.

UPDATE!: We are now doing 2-for-1 spectators. This means that for all paid spectators, you will be given two wristbands for entrance at the gate. So bring a friend. The person you bring along must come with you as they will have to fill out a waiver to get on the grounds.

Workout 1 (Saturday) "Pullin"

For time:
800 meter run
30 Snatches, 115/75
800 meter run

Workout 2 (Saturday) "Fast and Furious"

3 rounds for time of:
20 Box Jumps (24/20 inches)
20 Chest-to-bar Pull-ups
20 Wall Balls (20/14lbs, w/10 foot target)

Workout 3 (Sunday) "Serious 7"

Each athlete has 7 minutes to get their 7 rep max squat clean. When the athlete says "go" the judge will start the clock, each athlete has 40 seconds to complete their 7 rep max. They can do as many attempts as they want within the 7 minutes, however you only get 40 seconds for the 7 reps from the first pull. Rest and number of attempts is dependent on the athlete.

Workout 4 (Sunday)

Only the top 50 men and the top 50 women will advance into the final workout. The details of this workout will be revealed Saturday night after the completion of day's events.

Nice to see the events posted. They look good but some what basic compared to other sectional events.

Movement standards? mainly for the snatch

3. Justin wrote...

I like them!

I wish this were my qualifier.

Great WODs, looking forward to an amazing weekend. Wods seem very well thought out - quick, brutal, and balanced.

I bet Jay has something big and mean up his sleeve for the final Sunday WOD.

Best of luck to all.

Two events with Oly but very doable events. Great Sectionals level programming!

6. ben green wrote...

The best programming for an event I've seen. Virtuosity is Crossfit!!

We will be posting video's on all the movement standards. The first WOD is any snatch, power if you can, or full snatch if you please. They all must have complete locked out position. Steve we are testing to see who is dominant and proficient in all energy pathways. The WOD's may be basic but test you, the specialist will not be able to succeed.... WOD #1 is around the 10 minute range, WOD # 2 is around 5 minutes, WOD #3 is 40 seconds and the final WOD will be work capacity of a duration... around 20 minutes. We were also looking for balance among the big strong guys and the smaller metcon guys.

These are great. So many of the sections got way too cute, seemed like everyone was trying to out do eachother on how creative they could make the wod's. Test broad fitness, thats the goal, and I feel programming like this does a better job the many I've seen, nice work.

9. E wrote...

Women will be chest to bar too I hope!? I hate when they change it for us. We can do them too....

10. Larry wrote...


I know you are real busy now, but, snatch fully locked out means no "press outs"? (Too anxious to wait for standards vid!)

Also, I'd just like to say I really like these WOD's. They are classic CrossFit.

Thanks for everything.

11. Mike Essman wrote...

Love it! Classic Crossfit!

12. jason leydon wrote...

E.. you are right, women need to do 20 CTB too. Larry, if you end up pressing out, that is fine, we need to see the end fully locked out. All movement standards will be posted tomorrow on both sites..

13. Steve wrote...

Thank you Jason - they do look very - very solid and am looking forward to the challenge.

14. Ronda Rockett wrote...

I love it Jay! Can't wait to see you all and do these workouts.

15. Tom Seryak wrote...

This is great programming for the sectional level. Whoever did this programming really understands what broad, general and inclusive fitness is and how it should be tested at the wide end of the funnel. Nice work!

16. Sven wrote...

Great job Jay! Pure crossfit modalities. This test all abilities and the only way to win is to do more work faster!

17. AP wrote...

My thoughts exactly. The best CrossFitters will qualify. No fancy "novelty" movements. Happy to see only solid fundamental CrossFit movements. It's gonna be fun!

Is it too late to add guests??

I agree Jesse.

Nicely done Jay and looking forward to seeing your box explode with New England energy!

wod 3 is weird

21. Daigle wrote...

Nice Jay....can't wait to see the new box, and give these workouts hell. See ya Friday man.

This is a wonderful example of a broadly inclusive entry point to the Crossfit Games experience, what Tom Seryak is calling the wide end of the funnel. Predominantly in our CF sweet spot, the phosphagen pathway. A little skill required (a Crossfit style snatch), but mostly a test of CF intensity.

Well done. As New England is my home I really wish I could be there.

Love the WODS guys. Good to see balance in the programming! Well thought out it looks like. Good luck to everyone competing!

24. Jocelyn Leydon wrote...

No, it is not too late to bring a guest. I'm assuming you are competing and did not register anyone? Please contact me directly and we can figure it out.
All spectators can bring a guest as well. It is $50 a person, plus one.

Looking for Luke "Soupcan" Hare to do Maine Centurions proud.

26. Chris S wrote...

uh... the PCr system lasts 15 seconds... none of these WOD are purely PCr

27. Denise wrote...

Jason, great programming!! Back to basics! Good luck to everyone!!

29. tommy hackenbruck wrote...

WOW, under 6 seconds per squat clean...not a lot of time to re-grip or struggle out of that squat. genius, that will be way tougher than people think!

30. Tom wrote...

Agree with the comments above on the great job programming these. Well done!

31. Brandon CF Atlanta wrote...

Kudos to the simplicity-you dont have to reinvent the wheel for these WODs. Pretty decent programming IMO! Nice work...

32. jason leydon wrote...

Hello Jen,

Their will not be women's bars.

33. Mike Essman wrote...

What is the running surface?

Gonna be a fun weekend, good luck everyone!

34. Jen wrote...

Will there be womens bars?

35. jason leydon wrote...

running surface is a flat street run out and back..

36. justin c wrote...

30 full snatch? or is power snatch acceptable? and when can we expect the movement standards to go up today?

37. Eric wrote...

Justin C-

Check comment 7--power or full snatch is acceptable.

38. justin c wrote...

39. jason leydon wrote...

40. Derek wrote...

Great WODs Jason - this event is going to be sick!

42. LP wrote...

Derek...YOU are doing it in 5 minutes, bro...I did it in 7 change...I am not of the same ninja status as you! Good luck this weekend!

43. Dan Goldberg wrote...

I will not be lucky enough to enjoy these WODS b/c I'm from NY but I did WOD #1 just now for fun...and boy was it ever.

Got 10:05 by myself at the track as RXed

Wheels came off at the start of second 800 and I think I ran the very first lap 400m in 70 something sec. I love doing these wods and comparing myself to other guys all over the country considering I train solo.

Good luck to all the athletes competing this weekend.

44. jason leydon wrote...

Looking forward to seeing you guys.
