Compete with a Cougar, Wod with a Sugar Daddy
Friday November 1st, 2013



We at LexArtis are very excited to announce our first competition, Compete with a Cougar/WOD with a Sugar Daddy. This will be a team competition with one male and one female per team. The only catch is they MUST have a 10 year, or greater age difference between them (We will be looking at birth year for the age difference, NOT birth month. i.e. male partner born in 1975, female partner’s birth year must be either 1965 or 1985).

 

Movement Competency

This will be a competition that will be open to a wide range of competitors. None of the weights on any of the barbell movements will be higher than those seen in CF Opens or on named “Girl” Benchmark WODs. Movements you will see in this comp are:

  • Snatch
  • Double Unders (can be scaled to singles, but scaling eliminates your team from podium spots)
  • Burpees
  • Squat Cleans
  • Shoulder to Overhead
  • Pull Ups
  • T2B
  • Farmers Carry
  • Lunging while holding a plate overhead
  • Jumping squats
  • Rowing
  • Deadlifts

The top 6 teams will make it to the finals. The Finals will have 2 core movements and weight will be moderate (185#/135#). The movements in the finals will not be any of the movements from the 4 WODs previously seen. *muscle ups in any form will not be seen in this competition or in the finals.
