“RMTD Floater CrossFit Combine”
On a 5:00 Clock
Female – 40 Yard Sled Push (Sled + 90#)
Male – Max Rep Bench Press (Athlete choice: 135#, 185# or 225#)
Rotate and reset weights
Female – Max Rep Bench Press (Athlete choice: 85#, 125# or 145#)
Male – 40 Yard Sled Push (Sled +135#)
Sled Push: Athletes will have 2:00 to establish their fastest 40 yard time sled push,
this score will be added to your partners sled push time for half of your floater
Bench Press: Athletes may choose any of the 3 weight options listed above. The goal
is to move the most overall weight (reps x weight). Each athlete will have 2:00 to
establish a max rep set at the weight of their choice. Your set will finish when you
need a spot, rack the bar, or your 2:00 elapses. Ex: 10 reps completed at 135#
(10×135) equals 1,350#. Your score will be added to your partners total weight
moved for the other half of your floater score.
Scoring: Teams will be ranked against the competition field on the sled push
separately from the bench press. Ex: If your team takes 1st on sled push and 32nd on
bench press your total score will be 33 points for the floater. Your overall rank will
depend on your point score for both portions of the floater relative to other teams.
For Time:25 Min Cap
1 Mile Run (both teammates run)
300 DU (split reps as desired. 1 athlete works at a time)
75 Burpees (split reps as desired. 1 athlete works at a time)
To start the workout, both partners must run a 1 Mile loop beginning and ending at DNR. Partners must run together and return together, both partners must complete the mile run prior to either athlete starting the 300 DUs. 1 athlete will then begin the DUs and reps can be split as needed (one athlete can do all 300 if they choose to). Upon completing the jump ropes your team can progress to 75 Burpees. The reps can be split as desired but an athlete must complete a full burpee, landing back on the ground before their partner can begin a rep. The workout will be capped at 25 Minutes and for each rep not completed, one second will be added to the team’s score. Teams can choose to scale the DUs to singles but like in the CF Opens, your score will automatically be lower than all teams who performed the workout as prescribed.
7 Min Partner AMRAP
3 Hang Power Cleans (95/65)
3 Thrusters (95/65)
5 Pull Ups
*Trade stations after both partners have completed their full reps
Rest 2 Mins
2 Min AMRAP (separate score)
Deadlift (185/125) = 1 Point
Front Squat (185/125) = 4 Points
*Athletes can choose to do Deadlifts or Front Squats or a combination of the two lifts. Your total points accumulated will be your score.
At 3-2-1 go, each athlete will start at a different station. Athlete 1 will complete 3 hang power cleans + 3 thrusters while partner 2 completes 5 pull ups. After both partners complete all of their repetitions, then partners will trade stations. Your teams score for WOD 2 will be the total number of reps completed by both partners.
After the 7 Min AMRAP, teams will have 2 minutes to rest and adjust the weight on their barbells to 185/125.
At 9:00 both partners will begin a 2 Minute AMRAP on their own barbell.
Athletes can choose to do deadlifts and accumulate 1 point for every rep, or front squats with each rep accumulating 4 points. Athletes can do a combination of the two lifts to gain the best point value which will be combined with your partner for a total team score. Ex: perform a deadlift = 1 point, then Hang Clean before starting front squats.
Hang Power Clean: Each athlete must complete a deadlift to full extension before performing their 1st hang power clean and after completing the third power clean the athlete must come to full extension at the knees and hips prior to performing a full ROM Thruster and showing full extension to finish each rep.
Pull ups: Must begin with a fully extended elbow and finish with chin over the bar.
Deadlift: Full Extension at knees and hips, with shoulders stacked on top of the hips.
Front Squat: Start with an extended hip, break parallel, and return to full extension. A squat clean will count as your first rep.
