WORKOUT MOVEMENTS & STANDARDS


Before reading the weights and standards for the Suffolk Games Workouts, we would first like to thank you for supporting what will be our first Team and outdoor event. It is our goal to develop an inclusive fitness competition, challenging but not intimidating. Having the feel of a competitive event but with a variety of people taking part.

It is with this in mind that some movements and standards may differ slightly from the regular expectation of fitness events. While this is not done to make the workouts easier, it is done to ensure that as many participants as possible have the opportunity to complete the workouts and push themselves as hard as individually possible.

So sit back, relax and enjoy! …..

WORKOUT 1

Fran with friends


  • 21-18-15-12-9-6-3
  • Worm Thrusters
  • Synchro Worm facing burpees
  • INDIVIDUAL: Tyre pull
  • This WOD is For Time

Teams will complete the rep scheme by doing synchronised Thrusters with the worm followed by synchronised Worm facing burpees. Once the reps are complete, 1 team member will complete the tyre pull.

HOW IS IT SCORED


Teams score = the time on the clock once all reps and distance of the tyre pull are complete.

THE RULES


The Worm weighs a total of 100kg divided into 2x30kg blocks and 2x20kg blocks

The blocks will start on the shoulder of each team member. Teams will then perform a squat, with hips passing below the knee before fully extending and passing the block over their heads placing it on the other shoulder. This will count as 1 rep. Each team member must have the block in contact with the shoulder before descending into the next rep.

The burpees must be synchronised at the bottom of each rep. Each team member must have their chest and quads flat on the floor at the same time, facing their block on the worm. Team mates may ascend from the burpee out of sync and can either JUMP or STEP over their block. Before the next rep can be performed, all team members must again have their chest and quads flat on the floor at the same time.

INDIVIDUAL: The weight for the tyre pull is 50kg with a rope attached. The individual team member must perform 2 lengths (50m) tyre pull. The FEET must stay planted while pulling the rope. The length is complete once the entire tyre passes the line at the end of the lane.

This Workout will be scored for TIME. Once the tyre pull is complete, this will be the Teams score.
