“WZAOC Celebrate 7”
Wodapalooza Online Challenge 2018, WOD 1
- AMRAP in 7 minutes
- Squat Clean-and-Jerks (225/155 lb)
The workout begins with a preloaded barbell to the required weight, and the athlete standing tall. At the start of the clock, the athlete will begin their 7 min AMRAP of squat clean-and-jerks. The clean may be performed in one swift motion, any style, however, a hang clean is not acceptable. Any style of press is accepted, so long as the athlete finishes with hips, knees, and arms locked out overhead, weight over their center of mass, and their feet directly underneath their hips. This includes a squat clean thruster, thruster, or thruster-jerk.
If an athlete fails a rep of the shoulder to overhead, and catches it on their shoulders, they may reattempt the shoulder to overhead to complete the rep. If the barbell touches the floor before a rep is achieved, the athlete must reperform the entirety of the repetition. Touch-and-go repetitions are acceptable.
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 2018 Wodapalooza Fitness Festival.” Standards shown here are for the Rx division (there are also Elite, Intermediate, Scaled and other divisions in the competition).
2018 is the Wodapalooza competition’s sixth 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.
