Athletes will have 20 seconds to take the first barbell from the ground and then perform one thruster at a specified weight. They will then have 10 seconds to transition to the next barbell where the same requirements apply. They may make only one thruster attempt in any 20 second period. An attempt is defined by the barbell leaving the shoulders after the squat. If an athlete drops the barbell before an attempt is made, he or she may make take the barbell from the floor again. There will be 15 barbells. Athletes continue so long as they successfully perform the rep within the 20 seconds. Their result is the weight of their heaviest successful thruster. If an athlete is not able to complete a successful thruster with the first barbell, they receive a DNF and are eliminated from the competition.
In 2011, the top 60 men, 60 women and 30 teams from each of 17 regions qualified for Regionals. The 2011 CrossFit Games season held 17 Regional competitions — four more than in 2010.
For the first time, all CrossFit Games qualifying events in 2011 were standardized. Not only did competitors in all regions perform the same workouts during the Open, but those who qualified competed in the same Regional workouts, as well. Amanda, the 2010 CrossFit Games’ tribute to Amanda Miller, was re-programmed as one of six Regional workouts in 2011.
The second of 6 total workouts for the 2011 CrossFit Games Regionals (aka: "Regionals 11.2") was announced on May 19, 2011.
