2017 Prerequisite Standard Expectations for Each Division:

The RX Team division will challenge all athletes. The weight will get heavy and there will be high skill movements and grueling metcons. RX athletes should be able to perform the majority of CrossFit benchmark workouts as prescribed. Programming and movements requirements will be similar to what you would find on CF main site programming. A general idea of weights RX division athletes should be able to handle are listed below. If you are overly concerned with whether or not, you will be able to perform certain movements it’s recommended to register for the scaled division. These events will challenge athletes of all fitness levels.

(In pounds)
Snatch: 155
Clean & Jerk: 225
Deadlift: 315
Back Squat: 275

Snatch: 95
Clean & Jerk: 155
Deadlift: 225
Back Squat: 185

The scaled division will be structured to be inclusive for all willing participants. It’s highly suggested that you have some proficiency with basic skills and have enough CrossFit experience to be familiar with all of the movements. Expectations are similar to what you might find in a general CrossFit class. While it would be beneficial to be able to perform movements such as Pull-ups, Double Unders, or Box Jumps (24”/20”), there will be options to complete each event without having all of those skills and it will not exclude you from competition or from possible contention. Events will be similar to the RX events but will use lighter loads and have scaling options for gymnastics movements.

Examples of weights that you should be able to lift (in pounds):
Snatch: 95
Clean & Jerk: 135
Deadlift: 225
Back Squat: 185

Snatch: 45
Clean & Jerk: 95
Deadlift: 155
Back Squat: 135

The Masters division will challenge even the highest level Masters athletes, but will be very inclusive to all levels. Programming loads and skill demands will be similar to the CrossFit Open Masters workouts. The inability to perform any specific skill will not exclude any Masters athlete from competition. Expected loads will be similar to those listed above for the Scaled division.
