Our CrossFit North brothers, Dave Warner and Nick Nibler made a pilgrimage to Santa Cruz and we rehearsed what is to become “The CrossFit Challenge” – three rounds of 400 meter run, 1.5 pood Kettlebell or 50 pound dumbbell swing 21 reps, and 12 pull-ups.

In our test run Greg Amundson completed all three rounds in 9:05. We don’t expect that number to hold for long. Let us know how you fare at this “CrossFit Challenge.”

For female competitors the Kettlebell or dumbbell swing will be performed with a one-pood kettlebell or a 30-pound dumbbell. The women will also be allowed a ten-foot section of Theraband to assist the pull-ups.

I struggled on this WOD, even though I went light it still took me 228 seconds achieving a paltary score of 0.34. More work required I think.

115 pounds.

The sets were more like: 15 - (6,gasp,4,gasp,2) - (3,3,3)

7:15 total time.

Score = 115 / ((7 x 60) + 15) = 115 / 435 = 0.264

Ugly.

I maybe would have gotten a better score with a lighter weight, but I wanted to make sure I still qualified at the absolute minimum level to score any points in the CrossFit Fitness tests (as in April '03 CFJ). Minimum requirement on Test 2 (C&J 15 reps) is 115 pounds for any score.
