We are holding our second annual in-house competition THE CLASH AT THE COVE on October 15th from 10a – 2pm! For those of you who have never done a competition before (or don’t know what an in-house competition is), it is a FRIENDLY and FUN competition and open only to members of the Cove. It consists of three workouts during the day with a final fourth workout for the top five finishers in each division.The competition is for EVERYBODY in the gym, literally EVERYBODY!!!!
If you aren’t convinced that you can do this event AND have a great time you can still participate as a spectator or volunteer. We will take all the help we can get, and we will be in need of judges! Non-members and family are welcome to come and cheer everyone on too! We plan to make a day out of it and include grilling and potluck get together after the workouts are complete.
CLASH AT THE COVE STANDARDS
Use this guide to find the division that you should choose when signing up for the 2016 Clash at the Cove In-House competition. There is a sign up list on the White Board by the Wodify Station. We want to see that FULL!
For a “working weight” you should be able to perform 4-6 reps (not necessarily unbroken) for each of the movements listed. It does not mean these movements will appear in the workouts, rather it is to help you judge your own individual capacity vs. the load demands of the two divisions:
Clean and Jerk 95/65
Box Jumps 24/20 (step ups Allowed)
Jumping Pull Ups
Knees to waist
Clean and Jerk 155/105
Box Jumps 24/20 (no step ups allowed)

Coach’s Tip: The weights should be light and you should going unbroken in the early sets. A 20 minute metcon will test your engine for sure, so take a few seconds between movements to collect yourself and catch your breath so you don’t fall back to small sets of each movement! In CrossFit terms, this isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon…
