2011 CrossFit Games Regionals WOD
- 9-7-5 Reps For Time
- Muscle Ups
- Squat Snatches (135/95 lb)
Athletes will perform 9 muscle-ups then 9 snatches, then 7 muscle-ups and 7 snatches, then 5 muscle-ups and 5 snatches. The ring height will be adjusted so that the bottom of the ring is one fist higher than the tops of their fingers when standing with one arm extended. Athletes will begin standing under the rings. At Go, they will jump to the rings and perform the workout as described. Their result is the time to complete the entire workout. There is a 15min cap. If an athlete cannot finish in the time cap, their result is the time cap plus a one second penalty for each rep not completed. If the athlete is not able to complete a single muscle-up or a single snatch, they receive a DNF and are eliminated from the competition.
The 2011 CrossFit Games season introduced a format that would remain roughly the same for at least the next couple of years. It began with the first-ever Open competition. Athletes worldwide competed in six Open workouts over six weeks from March 15 to May 1, 2011, posting scores in real time and online. Anyone could throw their hat in the ring to compete for a position among the fittest athletes in the world. More than 26,000 athletes competed in the Open in 2011 — a fivefold increase from the level of participation in the 2010 season.
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.
The fifth of 6 total workouts for the 2011 CrossFit Games Regionals (aka: "Regionals 11.5") was announced on May 19, 2011.
