If you are planning to participate please sign up in advance so that we can make sure we are prepared. We need to purchase beverages, snacks and generally prepare. If you make a last minute decision to take part that is ok, but it would really help us out to know in advance how many people are attending. The event will start at 2pm on Febuary 19th. People that sign up the day of the event will be charged $20 per person.
Here are some answers to questions I have been getting.
1. Yes, you may partner up with somebody from outside the gym but the cost for that person with be $20 instead of $10 and they must sign a waiver before participating.
2.The cost for crossfit hoboken and 908 members is $10 per person
3. Both partners need to sign up
4. Yes, there is a chance that some of the events could change at the last minute. Be ready for anything!
5. Anybody of any skill level is welcome to participate, this is a social competition, not tryouts for the games.
Below are the events as currently planned
1 person works at a time, you can switch as often as you want
4 minutes of squats
4 minutes of burpees
4 minutes of situps
Relay Race Men wear weight vests (25lb)
Leap frog down and back
Wheel barrow down and back (alternate partners each round)
Partner carry down and back (one partner can do all of the carrying if need be)
All competitors get a bar into an overhead position. Every 10 seconds everybody does a squat. You get points based on when you fail. (the last to fail gets 1 point) Women load the bar with 35% of their weight and men load the bar with 50% of their weight. You may not lower the bar from the overhead position until you are done.
Round robin flip cup. While playing each team will be responsible for flipping 6 cups alternating which partner flips. To make this event more crosfitty you must complete 5(men)/3(women) pullups between each cup
Tabata beer shots. You will be pouring and drinking your own shots over a tray. Every ounce of beer spiled into your tray deducts 1 shot. I will bring a measuring cup.
Once the competition is over we will all hang out and have a few extra beers.
