On February 18th we will host a CrossFit Rampage Members Only Weightlifting competition.
Time Frame (estimated): 10:00am-2:00pm
Lifts performed: Snatch, Clean & Jerk
In the sport of weightlifting you get 3 chances each at lifting the most possible weight in the Snatch, and the Clean & Jerk. The event will run similar to a weightlifting meet, but there will be some slight changes to make things easy.
Upon the day of the event, you will have to weigh in (we’ll need this for scoring purposes) and declare the weight of your first attempt for Snatch and C&J. You will then be ordered to perform your first lift (snatch) based upon the amount of weight you decided to attempt to lift on your 1st attempt. You will then be ordered from lightest to heaviest weight for your 2nd lift, so on and so forth. Think of it like this, during the competition, theres 1 bar that at everyone shares, and weights NEVER go down. So if your first lift is 100lbs, then you want your next lift to be 115lbs, every other person in the competition that wants to lift 105 or 110lbs will do so before you get to lift again.
There will be an under 35yr old division, and a 35+ division. Scoring will be based on the Sinclair method, which takes into consideration the bodyweight of the lifter and the weight lifted.
