Berlin Throwdown 2017

What a weekend, the second year in a row our box organized the Berlin Throwdown: http://www.berlin-throwdown.com/

And they did great. I have been on a couple of Throwdons and competitions and can compare them. It was well organized, we good some goodies and an event s-shirt (still hoping for tank tops for the girls one day). The location was the same like last year, more space was used this year. Schedule, heats and structure really good prepared and all the people had a lot of fun…
We started as a team again: “Chilli Vanilly 2.0”. It was my third competions in four weeks, so I was really tired and felt the stress on my body. The ggod thing was, that we only had to compete on Saturday because Sunday was just for individuals. The workouts were hard, 6 events, including one stupid (because I am bad at it 😉 ) squat snatch ladder.

It was more demanding than last year and the teams athlete field was much stronger (I think even stronger than the individuals).

We finished up 13th, which was not our goal. But we had some bad moments and bad luck with judges, getting no rep-ed and being super strict (too strict) with some of the movements which is annoying when u compare with other teams and their judges…

Next Qualifier Beach Throwdown

Woohoo, it kinda never ends with these qualifiers… We registered for the Beach Throwdown in the Netherlands and the results must be online until Wednesday night. So we did two of three today. I had a wod appointment with one of my fav wod buddies, so I decided to do number 3 another day (I did not know that the deadline is already Wednesday…), so I have to do it somehow on my busy and long working day 😦

https://www.leaderwod.com/en/website/event/22/Beach-Throwdown-2017

QUALIFIER WORKOUT A
With a clock counting up complete as many rounds as possible in 8 minutes of:
16 Box Jump Overs (24”/20”)
8 Deadlifts (regular 100kg / 65kg)
Add 10kg to the deadlift weight when both athletes have completed a full round
Tiebreak there is tiebreak after the last fully completed round of boxjumps.
– We will do that tomorrow

QUALIFIER WORKOUT B
A combined total of 10 attempts (5 attempts per athlete) in a ground to shoulder, shoulder to overhead.
Each athlete has to make exactly 5 attempts at a lift.
The total weight of the lifts is your end score.
You are free to choose in wich order you and your buddy make the lifts.
If an athlete fails an attempt at a lift, the lift counts as 0kg. Every missed lift will count as one of the athletes attempts.
Both Athletes use the same single bar throughout the workout
Athletes are not allowed to deload the bar once the 8 minutes start: the weight must either stay the same or go up at each attempt.
Athletes are allowed to start with a loaded bar and may assist each other in loading the bar.

QUALIFIER WORKOUT C
FOR TIME 27-21-15-9*
Calorie Row
Wallballs 20/14lbs 10/9ft
Pull up
*Both athletes have to complete a full round of every movement before switching to the next.
Each buddy pair will use one rower and wallball.

It was kinda stupid to do Murph on Monday. I was sore, my pull ups felt not that easy and the wall balls sucked because of my legs from squatting and running. We will see how it turns out…
