Columbus Tournament of the Teams—
Individual Linda Competition–RX and Scaled (Men’s and Women’s) divisions
Team Linda Competition (Teams of 3) Video Demo Below.
**RX and Scaled divisions available**
As you probably know, Linda is one of the toughest workouts in the CrossFit program. Linda looks like this:
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of the triplet:
Deadlift: 1 1/2 body weight
Bench press: body weight
Clean: 3/4 body weight
Set up three bars and storm through for time.
You do 10 deadlifts, then 10 bench press then 10 cleans, then 9-9-9- 8-8-8 so on and so forth. To do Linda RX is an impressive feat. Scaled is pretty tough too. Making “Linda” a team event is super gnarly rad. You’ll have a blast as the 3 of you attack your 3 bars. Here’s how Team Linda will roll:
You can read my explanation and/or watch Rob Orlando’s awesome video below explaining how it will roll.
Teams will weigh in Saturday morning. We will add the weights together for all 3 people and then average them. The barbells will be set according to the average weight. For example…Athlete A is 180 pounds. Athlete B is 190 pounds. Athlete C is 200 pounds. The bars will be set up at the team’s average weight…190 pounds. Squat Clean will be 143, Bench will be 190, Deadlift will be 285.
One athlete will start at each movement–Deadlift, Bench Press, and Squat Clean. After they have completed a set of 10 reps at that movement they will rotate to the next station. They cannot move until the entire team has finished 10 reps. When they return to their original position they begin their round of 9. Repeat this process down to the end of the wod or until time expires.
The top 10 teams (along with the Top 5 Male and Top 5 Female Individual Competitors) will earn spots to compete in Sunday’s Strongman Medley (March 3rd) for cash and killer prizes!
Only $100 per team and only $40 for an Individual Competitor. And you are gonna love the shirts!
Morning heat begins at 9 a.m. with afternoon heat beginning at noon.
