movement standards

Synchro Overhead Squat

The movement begins with both athletes squatting below parallel at the same time with the bar held overhead. The movement ends with both athletes reaching extension of knees and hips with the bar over the centre of the bod. This finishing position must occur simultaneously for the rep to count

 

Synchro Front Squat

The movement begins with both athletes squatting below parallel at the same time with the bar held in a front rack position. The movement ends with both athletes reaching extension of knees and hips with the bar held in front rack position. This must occur simultaneously for the rep to count

 

Synchro Chest To Bar

The rep starts with the athlete hanging in full extension under the bar. The rep ends when the chest (below collarbone) CLEARLY makes contact with the pull up bar. This contact must be made simultaneously by athletes for the rep to count

 

Synchro Pull Ups

The rep starts with the athlete hanging in full extension under the bar. The rep ends when the chin CLEARLY breaks the horizontal plane of the pull up bar. This position must occur simultaneously by athletes for the rep to count

 

Synchro Burpee

The rep starts with both athletes in the bottom position of the burpee. Hips and chest must clearly be in contact with the floor. This position must occur simultaneously for the rep to count. The rep ends when athletes reach full extension of knees and hips, with hands over the head and centre of the body, with both feet off the ground. This finishing position DOES NOT need to happen simultaneously.

 

workout guidelines

Bars can be pre-loaded. Weights MUST be show before or after the workout.

 

penalties

No reps will be removed from a teams score. If we deem that consistent no reps allowed a team to progress into a new window, then we will have the option of removing all the subsequent reps in that window also. The decision of the organisers is final in this regard

filming guidelines

When filming this workout, teams must meet the following requirements:

A timer must be in view at all times. This can be via an app on your phone, or an external timer in your gym. Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure any timing app used functions correctly on your phone. The majority of app crashes are caused by lack of battery, lack of memory, or the phone not being in airplane mode

All weights must be shown and verified at some point in the video.

ALL MOVEMENTS SHOULD BE FILMED FROM AS CLOSE TO SIDE ON AS POSSIBLE

Video submission is mandatory for all Elite and Middle Ground categories. Scaled athletes can choose whether to follow the steps above, or have their video judged. If they choose to not to film their workout, they must be judged by a Level One (or above) qualified Crossfit coach. When submitting their video, they will include the following in the comments section:

JUDGE NAME

JUDGE EMAIL

Multiple scores can be submitted, the most recent will count

SCORING – deadline Midnight 18/9

Score = Reps Achieved

0-3 = 40 reps available

6-9 = Additional 56 reps available

9-12 = (this is going some!) Additional 64 reps available

8-9 – Athlete B max output ground to overhead at their own chosen weight

9-10 – Athlete A max output (weight remains same)

and so on until 13 minutes

Score is Combined Output of each athlete:

Athlete A Output = weight on bar x reps accumulated in their three minutes

+

Athlete B Output

 

movement standards

Ground To Overhead

This can be be in the form of a snatch, clean + jerk, or any other recognised method that sees the bar start on the ground and finish locked out overhead

For the rep to count, the athlete must finish the rep with knees, hips and arms all locked out, with the weight over the centre of the body. The athlete must demonstrate control in this final position before bringing the bar down

 

workout guidelines

Please announce your part A attempts prior to lifting

The weights achieved in part A must be shown during part A, or during the one minute transition (6-7), or at at the end of the workout

The weights used for part B should be shown before the workout, during the transition, or after the workout

Athletes must lift at different times during part A. Two lifts can not be going on at the same time

Athletes can only accumulate part B reps during their own window. If a rep starts, or ends outside of the window, the rep will not count

 

penalties

Any rep that we deem does not meet the standards above will be removed from scoring. This applies to both parts of the workout

A timer must be in view at all times. This can be via an app on your phone, or an external timer in your gym.

All lifts should be filmed from side on

Video submission is mandatory for all Elite and Middle Ground categories. Scaled athletes can choose whether to follow the steps above, or have their video judged. If they choose to not to film their workout, they must be judged by a Level One (or above) qualified Crossfit coach.

Multiple scores can be submitted, the most recent will count

SCORING – deadline Midnight 16/9

WSQ-2a

Your score is the combined total of each athlete’s best lift, in kilograms

Male Athlete best lift – 100kg

Female Athlete best lift – 60kg

Score = 160

 

WSQ-2b

Your score is the combined output of each athlete.

Athlete A – 60kg

Minute 1 (7-8) – 18 reps

Minute 2 (9-10) – 16 reps

Minute 3 (11-12) – 13 reps

Total reps (18+16+13) = 47

Output = (47 reps x 60kg) 2820

movement standards

The Workout can start with all equipment in place, including a pre-loaded Deadlift bar (male)

Synchro Wall Balls

The wall ball must be taken from the bottom of the squat, hip crease below the knee, and thrown to the specified target. Both athletes must be in the below parallel position at the same time for the rep to count

 The centre of the ball must hit at or above the target for the rep to count. If dropped, the ball must settle on the ground before being picked up again.

Row

 This must be performed on a Concept 2 RowerThis work can be split however. Before starting, the rower must be set to zero, with cals showing. The monitor should stay in clear view throughout. If you are unsure whether this has happened, follow the following steps to recall your monitor memory after your workout, but BEFORE the video ends

– Memory – List By Date – Select – Press Units until cals are displayed. This process can be sown to the camera to verify calories rowed

Synchro Deadlift

Each rep starts with the weights on the ground and ends with both athletes showing lockout of hips and knees, with shoulders behind the vertical plane of the bar. The lockout position must be achieved at the same time by both athletes for the rep to count. Bouncing the bar is not allowed

Handstand Press Ups

 Each rep starts with the athletes head in contact with the ground. The rep ends with arms fully locked out, heels only in contact with the wall, hips open, and body in line with the arms

Kettlebell Front Rack To Overhead

The rep starts with the kettlebell holding hand and forearm in contact with the chest. The forearm must be pointing downwards at an angle at least 45 degrees below parallel. The rep ends with the arm fully extended overhead, with knees, hips and arm extended. Control must be shown in the top position before the weight can be brought down.

Dumbell Snatch

The movement starts with both heads of the dumbell on the ground, and ends with the dumbell held overhead. This must happen in one smooth movement. At the top of the movment, the arms, hips and kness must be locked out, with the weight clearly over the centre of the body. The resting arm can not touch the bosy during the movement. This is an alternating arm movement.

 

penalties

Any no reps or missed reps/cals will be subject to a four second penalty

filming guidelines

When filming this workout, teams must meet the following requirements:

A timer must be in view at all times. This can be via an app on your phone, or an external timer in your gym.

The majority of app crashes are caused by lack of battery, lack of memory, or the phone not being in airplane mode

All weights and measurements must be clearly shown at the start or end of each workout

Wall Balls, deadlifts, and HSPU should be filmed from an angle close to side on so standards can be verified.

The rowing monitor must be visible on screen for us to verify the correct calories have been achieved. If in doubt, follow the steps shown in the video to recall the monitor memory BEFORE stopping the video,

score submission – deadline Midnight 14/9

Your team score is the time you have completed the workout in (mm:ss). If you fail to complete the workout, your score must be inputted as CAP+X where X is the number of reps remaining in the workout.
