Modified program of events (from International standard 3 forms) and use  a

5 minute  instead of 10 minute Time Box for our first competition.  You can enter

1, 2 or all 3 events:

Category 1: Clean and Jerk (Push Press) - a.k.a. Single Arm Long Cycle.

Category 2: Snatch (12Kg Female, 16Kg Male)

Our TWOD Kettlebell classes in January will all comprise a technique (T) training

component covering key techniques (Swing, Clean, Snatch, Jerk/Push Press). 

Don’t worry, this will certainly constitute a “work out” as we will be using the

correct weights.  The rest of those sessions is the Workout of the Day (WOD)

 

Turf Challenge on the day:

  1. Run to end and back

  2. Pull 130lb (sled) one-way

  3. Heel-To-Heel Shuffle there and back

  4. Pull 130lb (sled) back

  5. Carry 2 x 45lb plates there and back
