2011 CrossFit Games Regionals WOD

  • For Time
  • 20 calorie Row
  • 30 Burpees
  • 40 Two-Arm Dumbbell Ground-to-Overheads (45/35 lb)
  • 50 Toes-to-Bars
  • 100 foot Overhead Walking Lunges (45/25 lb plate)

This is a chipper workout. Athletes begin behind the line. At Go, they move to the rower and row 20 calories. They then move through each element, completing all reps before moving on. The overhead walking lunges are 50 feet out and 50 feet back. The sprint is 50 feet out, 50 feet back, 50 feet out to the finish line. There is a 20min time 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.

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. Amanda, the 2010 CrossFit Games’ tribute to Amanda Miller, was re-programmed as one of six Regional workouts in 2011.
