#2730 – CrossFit Team Series
Like the Wednesday team WODs? Wanna take it one step further, well, this is your chance! CrossFit Team Series!
THE 2017 CROSSFIT TEAM SERIES
Grab a partner, the Team Series will use pairs.
The 2017 CrossFit Team Series, presented by Compex, has a new format. The competition is simpler, but just like an elegant couplet, that doesn’t mean it will be any easier. Two women, two men or a man and a woman are allowed. Age groups have been added for all divisions. You and your teammates don’t have to train at the same affiliate or even live in the same state or country. You do have to complete all of the Team Series workouts together, though.
The series will take place over two consecutive weeks, starting in late September. Create your team.
PAIR UP AND WORK OUT
Two sets of partner workouts will be released with a live announcement on Wednesday, Sept. 20, and Wednesday, Sept. 27. In Week 1, pairs will have until Monday, Sept. 25, to complete the workouts and submit their scores. The deadline for Week 2 will be Monday, Oct. 2. This means pairs have five days to complete the workouts once they are released.
Pairs will be able to choose between the Rx’d and scaled version of each workout. Choosing scaled for one workout will not prevent a team from doing the next workout as prescribed.
90 Second Challenge
As many reps as possible in 90 seconds
Sit Ups 25/15#
Hand Release Push Ups
Rest 1:00 between rounds
“Up and over easy”
30 Shoulder to Overhead 95/65#
40 Pull ups
50 Front Squats 95/65#
30 Shoulder to Overhead
The first set of shoulder to Overhead should feel good, push press or quick push jerks are ideal. It should not be so heavy you need to split jerk it.
When you get to Front squats, try to hold on to the bar and breathe at the top, you can do more reps here than you think.
Finally, the last set of shoulder to overhead, I expect you’ll really be feeling those shoulders burn. Try to drop under the bar and use legs and save your shoulders. Split jerks will be tempting, but are slow and will force you to hold that bar overhead longer than you need to. Try for just a few big sets and get it over with!
