When Is The Crossfit Team Challenge Competetion For 2017?
The Crossfit Team Challenge is held once per year in August with most events taking place at the Reebok CrossFit Games Open. As you can see by the timetable above there are 5 different events on offer with 2 qualifying rounds, 1 heats and finals for each event. Each qualifier includes 6 athletes max who will qualify for the finals which take place at the Open Event in New York City in September 2017. There is also a Masters (40+ category) that will be done at this event too. Who Competes In The Team Challenge? Anyone over 18 years old can compete in the Crossfit Team Challenge including women who must officially start competing through USA Weightlifting Membership. Once your membership application has been accepted however, you’ll be able to register online to enter all competitions (including Wodapalooza & Regionals). Registration opens up 4 weeks before each competition takes place so make sure you register early! Firstly, if your still think about it here are four good reasons to compete:
, C2WODs Anaerobic Capacity (50% effort) 60 minutes to finish, 20 minutes rest between sets. 50-70% of 1RM split over more than one set. If you can’t achieve your score for time on this workout, break it up into four sets—because the total work done will be more than 60 minutes. Bodyweight Strength Movements Complete all movements after a ten-minute warmup. These movements should be scaled relative to bodyweight; if you cannot complete all reps of any given movement with your bodyweight, begin by adding five pounds until you are able to complete the rep range (rest only as long as required). If the prescribed weight is too heavy for you at practice time, do not attempt prolonged repetitions but instead use accessory lifts to help you get through the rounds.
