Do You Have What it Takes to Make it to the CrossFit Regionals?

In the last newsletter I wrote an article about performance benchmarks needed to be a CrossFit competitor. The CrossFit regionals just ended this weekend. I looked at the self reported scores for the bottom 10 competitors in the South West Region. (That is the region we compete in.) What you see below are average for the bottom 10 competitors. I repeat the BOTTOM 10. These are the men and women who went to regionals and got shelled.

Men to have a 460 pound deadlift is nothing to write home to mom and dad about but to have a 460# DL and have a 16:22 Filthy Fifty with a 400+ Fight Gone Bad is a pretty high mark to hit.

Women. 28 pull-ups. It’s tough but it can obviously be done.

There is a small chance there will be a class/program for competitors in the future. Because of the requirements for skills, technical work, need to be strong and developing work capacity it will require 1.5-2 hours of training per day 5 days per week. Let me know if you are interested.

 

If hard training doesn’t work maybe being a Jedi will get you to the Games.
