Movement Standards

Our Summer Throw Down is Teams of 6, made up of 3 males and 3 females. One athlete must be over the age of 35.
The challenge is for you and your team to test your selves against other sport and fitness communities from all over the country (and the rest of Europe). The teams which succeed in the events will be the most complete and well rounded in fitness.
The event will take place in a range of locations and Venus in Newquay, combining classic CrossFit with unique outside elements.
All athletes will compete in 4-5 events on day one and 3 events on day two. Followed by a final with a multiple stage knock out for the top teams.
Workouts cannot be scaled, however, the workouts, and the final workouts, have been designed to be inclusive so not all athletes will have to perform the higher weight and higher skill technical movements. For example, some workouts may have three separate parts, enabling athletes to be matched to their respective strengths meaning not every athlete will have to perform every movement. The movement list is endless. Although we will include many fundamental Crossfit movements, we will also deliberately include non CrossFit movements, odd object and random movements. The list bellow is an idea of some of the skills you may see in each level of the competition. The list is illustrative and not comprehensive.
