CrossFit Liftoff: Event 3–AMRAP


For Event 3 of the 2015 CrossFit Liftoff, powered by Rogue, athletes will be performing as many repetitions as possible in 12 minutes of 3 snatches, 6 clean and jerks, 9 chest-to-bar pull-ups and 54 double-unders. The men’s weight is 135 pounds and the women will use 105 pounds. Prior to beginning the event, the athlete must state the password to the camera. Password is Houston. For the snatch, the athlete must bring the bar from the ground to the overhead position in one smooth motion. This is not a ground-to-overhead anyhow. A clean and jerk, where the bar is lifted to the shoulders and then lifted overhead is a no rep. We need to see the arms, hips and knees fully locked out with the bar clearly over the profile of the athlete’s body. Once the athlete has reached lockout, the repetition will count. The athlete may choose to do a split-style snatch, however, both feet must return back under the athlete’s body while lockout is maintained before the repetition will count. If the athlete does not reach full extension of the hips, that rep will not count. The clean and jerk starts with the weight on the floor and finishes with the barbell fully locked out overhead, with the arms, hips, and legs extended and the bar over the center of the athlete’s body when viewed from profile. If the athlete fails to reach extension of the hips and knees before the weight is brought back down or dropped, that repetition will not count. If the athlete chooses to do a split-style jerk, both feet must return under the athlete’s body and the hips and knees must reach extension before the repetition will count. If the athlete does not lock out their arms at the top of the repetition, that rep will not count. If the athlete does not finish with the bar over the center of their body, those reps will not count. During the chest-to-bar pull-ups, any grip or style of pull-up is permitted as long as the repetition starts with the arms fully extended and finishes with the athlete clearly making contact with the bar below the collarbone. Any repetition which begins not at full extension will not count. Any repetition where the athlete does not make contact with their body below the collarbone will not count. For every repetition of the double-under, the rope must pass forwards around the athlete’s body. Each double-under repetition must have the rope pass around the athlete’s body twice. Single-unders are not permitted. For the weigh-in procedure, shoes, weight belts and knee sleeves may be removed prior to recording body weight. Place the scale on a hard, even surface. Zoom in to show that the scale— whether digital or analog—is set to zero. Keeping the scale in the frame, zoom out so that the athlete and scale are completely visible. With the entire athlete and scale visible in the frame, have the athlete stand on the scale. With the athlete standing on the scale, the videographer moves close to the scale so that the numbers can clearly be seen on the video. 189.6 Videoing of the weights used and athlete weigh-in may be done before or after the workout depending upon the athlete’s preference. However, the entire procedure including stating the password, performing the workout, recording the weights used and the athlete weigh in must be done in one continuous take. Edited or cut videos will not be accepted. Review the video to make sure everything is clearly viewable. Your score is the total number of repetitions completed in the 12-minute window.
