Row: Start with 0 calories and distance recorded on the rower. You may not get off the rower until the specified number of calories has been recorded. When at the beginning of the workout, you may start seated on the rower, but may not grip the handle before time begins. Remember to record the rower display every round.
Shoulder To Overhead: The barbell starts on the ground, not in a rack. You will bring the barbell into the front rack position, in contact with your shoulders and finish with the weight overhead, in control, with feet in line laterally, and knees, hips, shoulders, and elbows fully extended. The bar must make contact with your shoulders at the beginning of each repetition. A shoulder press, push press, push jerk or split jerk may be used, as long as the bar finishes directly over the body with the feet in line.
Bar Facing Burpees: Each burpee must be performed perpendicular to and facing the barbell. Your head cannot be over the barbell. The chest and thighs touch the ground at the bottom. You must jump over the barbell from both feet and land on both feet. One-footed jumping or stepping over is not permitted. The next repetition will then begin on the opposite side facing the barbell.
Overhead Squat: The barbell starts on the rack. While holding the barbell overhead with your arms fully extended, squat until your hip crease is below the top of your knee. Finish with your knees and hips fully extended and arms locked out, holding the barbell overhead.
The only weight allowed on the barbell at the start of the 8:00 minutes, is 50/35Kg or 110/77Lbs from part A. Any additional weight may not be loaded prior to the 8:00 minutes and only one barbell is allowed for this workout. You must load your own barbell without help. The athlete is required to round up when converting from Kg to Lbs
From 2016-2017, the event built on its previous success with the introduction of an online qualifier, which allowed the Dubai CrossFit® Championship to reach more athletes than ever before. In 2017, a total of 72 athletes from 19 different countries representing four continents (including 32 CrossFit Games® athletes) competed. From 2012-2015, prior to the online qualifier, athletes were required to travel to Dubai and compete across multiple gyms and venues to earn a spot to the finals a week later. This grassroots approach provided a great platform for the local fitness community to thrive and compete amongst themselves and set the stage for the years to come.
