“WZAOC 15.5 Qualifier”
2015 Wodapalooza Online Challenge WOD #5
- For Load
- 5 Clean-and-Jerks
With a running clock of 5 minutes, athlete is tasked to perform 5 clean and jerks. The total accumulated weight for the five successful lifts will be the score of the athlete. Moreover, the athlete can have as many attempts as possible of clean and jerks within that 5-minute time frame. Only the highest load for the five successful lifts will be counted.
The organizers describe the event as a way to “unite the community and provide an opportunity for us to test our fitness on a worldwide stage and to earn a spot to compete at the 2015 Wodapalooza Fitness Festival.” Standards shown here are for the Rx division (there are also Elite, Intermediate, Scaled and other divisions in the competition).
2015 was the Wodapalooza competition’s third year, growing from a local event in 2012 to attracting “over 25,000 spectators & nearly 1,500 athletes, representing 30 countries.” Their online challenge is the first step in qualifying for the Wodapalooza fitness festival.
