INTERMEDIATE

Our Intermediate category was created to allow a wider range of athletes the opportunity to take part in our competition and not just sanctioned and CrossFit Games level athletes, we want the whole family taking part in the action.

Event director Carl Saville said: “Over the years as the sport has grown, there has been a clear pool of athletes like myself who don’t fit in the ‘Scaled’ or ‘RX’ category and trapped in the middle, therefore we want to give them an opportunity to get involved too”

This category will feature RX movements but with reduced volume and load to suit the needs of the intermediate category. So, if you CAN’T perform ALL of the below movement guidelines yet, then our ‘Intermediate’ category is indeed for you, if you CAN perform all of these, then you should select the ‘RX’ category:

  • Perform 5+ unbroken Muscle Ups (Any variation)
  • Perform 10+ unbroken HSPU (Any variation)
  • Perform 10+ unbroken Thrusters at 60/40kg
  • Perform 10m unbroken handstand walk
