2014 CrossFit Games Regionals WOD
- For Load
- 1 Rep-Max Hang Squat Snatch
- Time Cap: 6 minutes
For this event, athletes will have three (3) attempts to establish their heaviest 1-rep hang squat snatch. At the call of “3-2-1 … Go!” athletes will have 2 minutes to load their barbell and attempt their first lift. They will not be allowed to lift again until after the 2-minute mark. They may not attempt their final lift until after the 4-minute mark, and the lift must be completed before the 6-minute mark.
Each athlete will begin with an empty barbell and a stack of plates. It will be the athlete’s responsibility to load the bar for each lift and declare the weight to the judge prior to lifting. Athletes may not decrease the weight after a failed attempt. The smallest weight increment permitted will be 5 lb. for both men and women.
After the 6 minutes is up, athletes will have 2 minutes to transition to Event 2.
Regionals are the second stage of the CrossFit Games, following The Open, where the fittest athletes and teams in each region competed to earn their place in the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games.
