515 Throwdown 3.0

515 Throwdown 3.0

Saturday February 1st
Overview at 8:30AM with first workout at 9:00AM
(There will be no regular scheduled class)

The purpose of the 515 Throwdown Series is to give everyone the chance at experiencing the spirit of a CrossFit competition in a fun and familiar environment. Competitions are only one aspect of the world of CrossFit, but whether you are just curious or have aspiriations of competing in the future, this is a great way to get started. Also, if you are planning on competing in the Open this year, the 515 Throwdown is a great opportunity to get used to being judged and held to strict range of motion standards.

The 515 Throwdown will consist of 2-3 workouts that will be announced the day of the competition. There will be an RX selection of workouts and scaled options as well. We plan to be done with the competition around noon.

If you would like to participate, please sign up through the 515 Calendar like you do for normal class. Cost is free for 515 members and $25 for non members (previous CrossFit experience required).

    I am an instructor at CrossFit I-Town in Indianola, IA and I was wondering if individuals, who do not wish to participate in the WOD could attend to support competing gym members from our box? Thank you for holding such a wonderful event and helping individuals who desire to compete get a dose of it now.

    Just want to clarify, this is intended to be like the other 515 Throwdowns that we have done in the past. We will put heats together on Friday night to try and make things run as smooth as possible. We will start the next heat as soon as the previous one is done to try and get everyone out in a timely manner. There will be two workouts, and we will start the first heats for workout 2 as soon as the final heat of workout 1 is done. I will go over range of motion standards before the workouts (I think the movements are pretty cut and dry), and we will have anyone that wants to be judged pair up and judge one another. I think judging other people does a good job of teaching you what to look for and what to be aware of when you are being judged yourself. There will not be any prizes (unless you count pride). I know there is a lot of jibberish in here but I wanted to make sure everyone is on the same page. We are all just here to have fun and get our competitive juices flowing before the start of the Open in a month. As always, drop-ins are welcome, didn’t want anyone to misinterpret this as some hugely formal event.
