The Burgeners Outline What Constitutes Acceptable Movement
From Oct. 1-3, CrossFitters will compete with Olympic lifters in the first CrossFit-USAW Open. What will be the hardest adjustment for CrossFitters at this judged weightlifting meet? The standards.
While CrossFitters are comfortable with the Olympic lifts, judged standards are different from those common in most boxes. To prepare Team CrossFit for the event, USA weightlifting team members and national record holders Natalie and Casey Burgener answer questions about the upcoming competition. They identify the sticking points for CrossFit competitors and provide expert advice on how to avoid seeing red lights before, during or after a lift.
Join Matt and Cherie Chan of CrossFit Verve as they test the official standards on the tennis courts that will play host to the Open in just a few weeks.
