CFM

Day two kicks off in OH with what will be a pivotal event for Team CFM.  Event 5 (The Mens Thruster Rope Climb) is going to be a nail biter!  The Live Stream can be found HERE.  Our heat is roughly scheduled for 9:30 Eastern Standard.

TEAM EVENT 4 – 2014

Three women complete for time:
50 thrusters, 95 lb.
10 14-foot rope ascents
40 thrusters, 95 lb.
8 14-foot rope ascents
30 thrusters, 95 lb.
6 14-foot rope ascents

Time cap: 10 minutes

Notes
Team Event 4 begins with all three females on the starting mat. At the call of “3-2-1 … Go!” the athletes move forward to the barbell and perform 50 thrusters. The barbell may not touch the ground until the full number of repetitions is completed. After the 50 thrusters they will advance the barbell to the 40-rep station, go under the wall and touch the finish mat. When all three members have touched the finish mat, a single athlete may return to start the climbs. The other athletes must remain on the finish mat until the working athlete returns to it. They may break the reps into sets and share the work how ever they choose. However, each member of the team must perform at least 1 rep of each movement every round or the team will not be allowed to advance. They will then move back to the barbell for 40 reps, then back to the rope for 8 ascents, then 30 more thrusters, and finally 6 ascents. The event is complete when all members are standing on the finish mat.

Team Event 5 will begin immediately following the 10-minute time cap. The men (Team Event 5) will not be allowed to leave their start mat until all female members of the team are standing on the finish mat.

Scoring
The team’s score is its total time.

Movement Standards

Thrusters
This is a standard barbell thruster in which the barbell moves from the bottom of a front squat to full lockout overhead. The hip crease must pass below the knees. A full squat clean into the thruster is allowed if the bar is on the ground.

The barbell must come to a full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the body. If the bar touches the ground once the set has begun the team’s count for that set drops back to zero.

Rope Climbs
In the rope climb, the athlete ascends the rope to touch the cross beam at the top. Jumping up to begin each ascent is permitted.

50 thrusters, 135 lb.
10 14-foot rope ascents
40 thrusters, 135 lb.

Notes
Team Event 5 will begin immediately following the 10-minute time cap of Team Event 4. This event begins with all three males on the starting mat. The men will not be allowed to leave their start mat until all female members of the team are standing on the finish mat.

At the call of “3-2-1 … Go!” the athletes move forward to the barbell and perform 50 thrusters. The bar may not touch the ground once the set has begun. After the 50 thrusters they will advance the barbell to the 40-rep station, go under the wall and touch the finish mat.

Relay for time
9-6-3 reps of:
Strict handstand push-ups
Hang power cleans, 160 / 110 lb.
Burpees

Time cap: 21 minutes

Notes
This event begins with all teammates on the starting mat. At the call of “3-2-1 … Go!” the first male athlete will enter and perform 9-6-3 of the triplet, advancing the barbell to the appropriate station prior to each round. When the first male reaches the finish mat he will return the barbell to the 9-rep station then return to the finish mat. The next male athlete can enter as soon as the first male athlete reaches the finish mat after his last burpee. The last male athlete will advance his barbell to the designated finish area to make way for the women’s bar. Athletes will proceed in this fashion, men first and then women, until all six members have completed the triplet and the last female reaches the finish mat.

If any athlete has 3 failed handstand push-up attempts in any round their team will be time-capped for the event and receive a penalty for that athlete’s uncompleted reps. The athlete must then move forward to the finish mat, and the next athlete will enter and begin. The remaining athletes will perform their work as written to avoid additional penalty points.

Scoring
The team’s score is its total time.

Movement Standards

Strict Handstand Push-ups
The movement begins at the top of a handstand with the athlete’s back to the wall and with the arms fully locked out, the heels on the wall, and the hands placed clearly within the marked area. The marked area will be approximately 34 inches wide by 24 inches deep, and the palm of the hand must remain completely within the taped area (fingers may extend over the tape).

At the bottom of each rep, the head touches the ground. At the top of each rep, the arms return to fully locked out with the heels on the wall and the shoulders in line with the body. The heels must remain within the width of the marked area throughout the entire rep. Kipping is not allowed. The athlete’s hips may not touch the wall, and their legs must remain straight.

Hang Power Cleans
Each repetition must start from the hang, or any repetition taken from the floor, must achieve a deadlift lockout (hips and knees fully extended, shoulders behind the bar) before re-dipping to initiate the hang clean.

Each repetition finishes with the bar racked on the shoulders and the elbows clearly in front of the bar with the hips and knees fully extended. Power cleaning the barbell from the ground in one continuous motion is not permitted. The bar must be moved to the next station before starting a new round.

Burpees
Each burpee must be performed perpendicular to and facing the barbell. The head cannot be over the barbell and the chest and thighs touch the ground at the bottom. The athlete must jump over the barbell from both feet and land on both feet. One-footed jumping or stepping over is not permitted. The next rep will then begin on the opposite side facing the barbell.
