THE MAJORS

Team Requirements

To compete in The Majors, athletes should possess the strength and skills necessary to perform typical CrossFit workouts.  Athletes should be comfortable performing standard barbell movements, such as the deadlift, snatch, clean, shoulder-to-overhead (shoulder press, push press, push/split jerk), squats (back, front, overhead) and thrusters.  They should also be comfortable rowing, running, biking and using a ski erg.

WOD Requirements.  Athletes should be capable of completing Grace, Fran and Annie prescribed.

STRENGTH Requirements.  Athletes should be capable of performing deadlifts at 155lb, cleans at 105lb, snatches and thrusters at 95lb in a workout.

SKILL Requirements.  All athletes should be capable of performing multiple repetitions of the following movements: burpees, box jumps, pull-ups, double unders, and toes-to-bar.

**There will be no single “show stopper” movement in ALOTO8; as long as all athletes can perform the required skills, your team will be able to progress through the workouts.  However, the more athletes that are proficient at a skill, the more successful and competitive your team will be.
