“Regionals 10.1 (North Central)”
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.
About the wod
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.
