The events that challenged the teams hoping to qualify for the Affiliate Cup were some of the most creative examples of CrossFit programming. Regional directors were tasked with both managing huge numbers of athletes and selecting the fittest teams, and neither assignment was particularly easy.

In the South Central Regional, teams were faced with three interesting WODs that would separate the top outfits from the rest of the pack:

In 7 minutes:
2 men—100 double-unders then 25 deadlifts (225 lb.)
2 women—100 double-unders then 25 deadlifts (155 lb.)
Then spend the remainder of the 7 minutes completing AMRAP of deadlifts or double-unders (only one man and one woman can be working at a time)

100 thrusters (115/75 lb.)

100 push-ups

100 hang power cleans (115/75 lb.)

100 ring dips

100 overhead squats (115/75 lb.)

(only one team member can be working at one time)

Max-distance row in 24 minutes
(each athlete will perform 3 rounds of 2 minutes)

What's the deal with the guy 'throwing' the deadlift into the ground for the rubber plate rebound?? I doubt my coach would allow that in your run of the mill WOD let alone a competition...

Yep, saw that live at Regionals. There were plenty of questions when it came to form standards.
Even just how badly athletes were moving their body in many positions. I fear that people throw away proper movement during a competition in hopes of placing high on the podium. You have to wonder if they practice that way at their gym.
How long are they going to continue if they keep moving in bad positions?

Just my thoughts after attending kelly starett's certification.

good luck in LA, to all.

It's at 2:17 in the video, the guy in the background. Interesting. As with the kip, there's no free lunch, the work is still being done, but is it still a dead lift at that point?

It is absolutely not a deadlift. Deadlift implies it is being lifted from a dead stop. Hence the name. What I'd like to know is if the ring dips had to be strict, why not have some similar standards for push ups and deadlifts? Instead there is belly flop worm push ups and heaving bouncing bar to hips.

To the dude slamming down the deadloft bar: come on do the workout properly like everyone else. No shortcuts.

what's the big deal? you're allowed to press out a snatch so why not bounce a deadlift off the floor.
