2010 CrossFit Games Regionals WOD

  • For Load
  • 1 rep Max Effort Ground to Overhead

At the time this workout was originally programmed, CrossFit called the “Ground to Overhead” movement “Two hand overhead, anyhow,” and said: The most efficient way to accomplish this will be with a clean and jerk. You must lift the barbell from the ground to overhead and finish in a stable, unmoving, locked out position. The athlete’s elbows, shoulders, hips and knees must be locked out and unmoving, and the athlete must wait until the judge gives the audible and visual cue to lower the weight. The bar must be dropped in a controlled manner, with the athlete’s hands on the bar past the hips, for the lift to count. We are not using USAW rules, and press outs, while inefficient; will not be cause for a “no lift”. That’s why we aren’t calling it the Clean and Jerk.

Background: 2010 again redesigned the CrossFit Games season. On December 3, 2009, the Games site announced that the 2010 Regionals would no longer be open to anyone — athletes would have to qualify via Sectionals, a new stage of competition. Sectionals chopped the world up into even smaller bits. Some regions were split into as many as four different sections. In addition, an Online Qualifier, specifically designed for military service members unable to attend Sectionals, fed athletes into Regionals.

While 2010 saw the Sectionals spread out over the world, the number of Regionals decreased. Canada East and West were consolidated into one Canada Regional, and Iceland joined Europe. In total, 13 live Regional competitions selected the athletes of the CrossFit Games. Similar to 2009, each qualifying event for the CrossFit Games featured different programming during both Sectionals and Regionals.

The first of 4 total workouts for the 2010 North Central CrossFit Games Regionals (aka: "Regionals 10.1 (North Central)") was announced on April 25, 2010.
