What happens if you don't have muscle ups yet?

Look like great WODs. Curious, for the Masters DU Helen where would the DU's take place if the Big Rig is set up in the grass?

We will have a way to advance someone that cannot complete a workout and/or an individual movement. We are very well aware that everyone has trained hard and spent money to come to the event. We have 4 events planned for all the competitors signed up right now.

We do not plan on advancing an athlete to the final workout unless they have successfully completed all the movements.

There was drug testing at the Games last summer. Will there be testing at the regionals? If so, what type and does it apply to all contestants?

Are belts allowed in the DL event?

Holmberg killin it!

Yikes. Low backs are gonna get very spicy with the no belt rule.

Can we drop from the top like at last year's Games?

1. Will there be time cut-offs for the WODs?

2. Is the entire 5k run with sandbags, or just portions of it?

Do athletes have to load their own bars?

On what surface(s) will the athletes deadlift?

What's the height of the Muscle Up station?

Are the WODs done under a roof or ten or are they open (given the chance of rain)?

15. Josh Courage wrote...

WOD's look awesome guys, very well put together, and a realistic challenge to produce the top athletes to represent our region!

Wish I could be competing with everyone, but I have some major ligament damage in my hand thanks to a bicycle wreck while riding across the country.

All the best to everyone, and I will be ready for next year for sure!

Whoop some ass Chris

Steve, I wouldn't worry about a belt. I've deadlifted 400 weighing only 170 lbs and have never worn a belt for deadlifting in my life.

18. Imtiaz wrote...

Massive! All the best ya'll!

19. Lexy wrote...

did you secure 20 females for the event? i know they were into alternates as of 2wks ago.

20. Danny wrote...

Too many questions. Just show up and perform.

21. Matthew Young wrote...

Will spectators be able to purchase bands at the site to attend regionals?

22. Nick wrote...

Unless, and it is quite possible, we have overlooked the Masters Division individual qualifier events, will this be posted soon?

23. Craig wrote...

Can spectators come, and is there a charge?

24. Brian Y wrote...

Standards video can be seen here


25. Tom Seryak wrote...

Brian, fyi the standards video with stephen skips from muscle-up standard straight to deadlift standard without going over complex standards.

26. Kyle wrote...

Do you have to clean the sandbag, stand up fully and then do the front squat or can you do a full clean (i.e. below parallel) and then stand up?
