The second WoD of the 2015 CrossFit Amherst Summer Swolestice Games is:

Each athlete will have 7 minutes to hit a THREE REP MAX on 2 of the 4 lifts listed below:

Squat clean (strict touch and go)
Hang Power Snatch
Thruster (can be taken off the rack)
Jerk (any style/ can be taken off the rack)

-NO MORE than 5 seconds in any stationary position between reps – this will count as a failed attempt
-Athlete must be at the end range of motion BEFORE their alloted 7 minute time block is up or the lift doesn’t count (not finishing rep 3 at 7:01)
– Athlete 1 and 2 are the only people allowed to touch the bar/weights during the event (athlete 2 can help athlete 1 swap weight, help re-rack missed lifts etc.).
– Each athlete may perform any two lifts they like in any order the want, but ATHLETES MUST PERFORM ALL 4 LIFTS 
-Athlete 1 will go, then athlete 2, then 1 again and finally 2 on the last lift.
-Scoring will be as follows: The three rep max weight/ your body weight. The results for the two lifts each athlete performs will be added together for a total team event score. the highest score will win the event.
-The first athlete lifting will have 5 minutes to warm up before their first lift.

The third WoD of the 2015 CrossFit Amherst Summer Swolestice Games is:


5 rounds for time
Each round is made up of 2 couplets

Couplet 1: 
63 Double Unders or 105 singles
200m Burden Run (20/14)

Couplet 2: 
21 Box Jumps or Step Ups
21 kettle bell swings (53/35)

-Each athlete will be responsible for completing one exercise from each couplet each round

-All reps must be completed in each couplet before moving on to the next couplet

-Each athlete must complete all the reps of their exercise on their own (i.e. Both athletes can’t do kb swings in the same round)

-Athletes DO NOT have to do the same exercises each round

-On the jump rope, if you usually do double unders / singles in WODs , that’s what you’ll be expect to do Saturday. Same with box jumps / step ups.

-If you do step ups you MUST step down

I will cover movement standards before the event. If you have questions please ask them here, and I will try to clarify.
