The AMRAP has been released.

 

CrossFit's first online weightlifting competition, the 2015 CrossFit Liftoff, powered by Rogue, has begun. 

Over the next 96 hours, athletes will find their 1-rep-max snatch and 1-rep-max clean and jerk, and will see how many repetitions they can accumulate in the 12-minute AMRAP. The code word, naturally, is Houston; state it at the start of all video submissions.

Scores are due before 5 p.m. PT on Monday, Nov. 9.; submit them through the submit scores link on Games.CrossFit.com/Liftoff. 

The two workout options below, Rx'd or Scaled, apply to all three divisions (Open, Teenage, and Masters).

Rx'd

Complete as many rounds as possible in 12 minutes of: 
3 snatches
6 clean and jerks
9 chest-to-bar pull-ups
54 double-unders
M 135 lb., F 105 lb.

Scaled

Complete as many rounds as possible in 12 minutes of:
3 snatches
6 clean and jerks
9 pull-ups
54 single-unders
M 95 lb., F 65 lb.

One rep as Rx’d will rank higher than the best scaled performance.

Reminders

  • You must weigh in a total of three times. Weigh in immediately before or after each event (snatch, clean and jerk and AMRAP). Your heaviest weigh-in will determine your weight class.
     
  • Video evidence is required in order to claim prizes.
     
  • This isn't the complete information. Read the movement standards and watch the explanatory videos on the Event Descriptions page before you get started.
     
  • Got more questions? The answers can be found in the Rulebook or by asking the support team at liftoffsupport@crossfit.com


It’s not too late to join the Liftoff. Registration will remain open throughout the weekend.
