2016 Event 3, Workout 1: 1RM Overhead Squat

  • CrossFit South Brooklyn 597 DeGraw Street Brooklyn, NY 11217 (map)


In 10 Minutes:
Establish a 1 Rep Max Overhead Squat

Each athlete will have their own rack and ample poundage in bumpers and change (change will be in 10, 5, and 2.5 lb plates). They will have 10 minutes on the platform to warm up, and a 10 minute running clock to establish their 1RM.  Tie breaker will be the time at which the heaviest successful attempt is completed (a faster time equals a better tie breaker).

Overhead Squat
Clips must be used and only the athlete may touch the bar, plates, or clips. The barbell is taken out of a rack and from behind the neck to overhead anyhow. Once in a fully locked out overhead position (with elbows, knees, and hips fully extended) the athlete must pass through the bottom of a squat (hip crease below top of kneecap) and return to a fully locked out overhead position and wait for a "down" command from the judge. The athlete may bail the bar and return it to the rack or recover behind the neck and re-rack before the next attempt. Once the bar is fully locked out it may not touch any part of the athlete's body during the squat. If it does, the athlete must start over fully locked out overhead. Athletes will be credited with their heaviest successful attempt.
