Regional
& Qualifier
Events

In 2014, CrossFit introduced the first-ever Masters Qualifier. The top 200 masters athletes each age division—40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59 and 60-plus—had have from Thursday, April 17 to Monday, April 21 to complete four events. 

Masters athletes had their five scores recorded to determine the top 20 in each age division. The first of five scores for each masters athlete was their final Open ranking. The other four scores were the final rankings of each event from the Masters Qualifier.

The 20 athletes with the fewest points at the end of the Qualifier moved on to compete at the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games in Carson, Calif.

 

  • Event 1

    • The barbell begins on the ground.
    • A muscle clean, power clean, squat clean or split clean may be used, as long as the barbell comes up to the shoulders, with the hips and knees fully extended with the feet in line and the elbows in front of the bar.

    1-rep-max clean

    Video Submission Standards
    For this event only the heaviest lift repetition must be shown on video. The plates and barbell must be filmed before or after the successful lift so the loads can be seen clearly. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person should be in the frame throughout the entire video. Shoot the video from the side so it is clear the elbows are in front of the bar while standing tall with the barbell.

  • Event 2

    • In the muscle-up, you must begin with, or pass through, a hang below the rings with arms fully extended (with or without a ‘false grip’) and the feet off the ground
    • The elbows must be fully locked out while supporting yourself above the rings. Kipping the muscle-up is acceptable, but swings or rolls to support are not permitted. If consecutive kipping muscle-ups are performed, a change of direction below the rings is required.
    • The barbell begins on the ground. Touch-and-go is permitted. No bouncing.
    • Athletes MUST receive the barbell in the bottom of the overhead squat position, with the hip crease below the top of the knee. Catching the barbell in a power snatch position and then lowering to the bottom of the overhead squat is only permitted in the older divisions (see above).
    • The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the middle of the body.
    • Chest-to-bar pull-ups will be performed only by 55+ athletes. All younger divisions will perform muscle-ups. This is a standard chest-to-bar pull-up. Dead hang, kipping or butterfly pull-ups are allowed, as long as all the requirements are met. The arms must be fully extended at the bottom.
    • At the top, the chest must clearly come into contact with the bar below the collarbone.

    Video Submission Standards
    Prior to starting, film the plates and barbell to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from the side so it is clear proper depth and lockout are being reached on the squat snatches, and that lockout is shown at the bottom and top of the muscle-up.

  • Event 3

    • The athlete may begin the workout seated in the rower but may not grab the handle until the call of “go.” The monitor must be set to zero at the beginning of each round.
    • The marked area needs to be 36 inches wide by 24 inches deep, and the palm of the hand must remain completely within the taped area (fingers may extend over the tape). The movement begins at the top of a handstand with the arms fully locked out, the heels on the wall, and the hands placed clearly within the marked area. At the top of each rep, the arms return to fully locked out with the heels on the wall.
    • At the bottom of each rep, the head touches the ground. Kipping is allowed as long as the other requirements are met.
    • Depending on your division you may be allowed to use a 2-inch or 4-inch riser on the handstand push-up.
    • This is the standard double-under in which the rope passes under the feet twice for each jump. The rope must spin forward for the rep to count. Only successful jumps are counted, not attempts.

    3 rounds for time of:

    MEN 40-44 and 45-49

    Video Submission Standards
    All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Prior to starting, show measurements of the marked box for the handstand push-ups. Shoot the movements from the side so it is clear all the calories are rowed, the head touches the floor at the bottom and the arms are locked out at the top of the handstand push-ups, and the rope passes twice under the feet on the double-under.

  • Event 4

    • This is a standard pull-up. Dead hang, kipping or butterfly pull-ups are allowed, as long as all the require- ments are met. The arms must be fully extended at the bottom.
    • At the top, the chin must break the horizontal plane of the bar.
    • In the wall-ball shot, the medicine ball must be taken from the bottom of a squat, hip crease below the knee, and thrown to hit the specified target.
    • The center of the ball must hit the target at or above the specified target height. If the ball hits low or does not hit the wall, itisanorep.

    Video Submission Standards
    Prior to starting, film the measuring of the height of the wall-ball target, as well as the weight of the ball. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the movements from the side so it is clear that proper depth and height are being reached on the wall-ball shots and the chin can be seen over the height of the bar on the pull-ups.
