Here are the WODs for the Masters Team Throwdown Nov 8th. The Throwdown will run from 8:30 AM until around 2:00 PM. There is still time to get your team together and sign up! Go HERE to register. $80 per team. Total team age has to be at least 160 years.
For each WOD, you will get a ranking. If there is a tie score on a specific WOD, you will get the same rank for that WOD. We will add the ranks from each WOD to determine the overall rank (and ultimately the winners of the prizes for first, second and third). If there is a tie for any of the top three positions, we will do the math on each WOD for those teams to determine who mathematically is the winner (with each WOD being equally weighted).
WOD 1: Follow the Leader
4 person team relay. Each gender breaks up the reps any way they want. The 2 men go first, followed by the 2 women. The women cannot advance to the next station until the men have completed the reps.
WOD 2: Move that Weight
Part A: Teams will be broken into 2 pairs, Each pair will work together throughout parts A and B.
Part B: The same 2 people from your team will move into another area and do a 5 min AMRAP (alternating athletes per round). The score is the total reps combined from both athletes.
WOD 3: The Four Jumpers
The 4-person team will work together for this 12-minute AMRAP. You can do the deadlifts with 1 or 2 people on the bar, but you just have 1 bar for the men and one for the women. Each member will be doing 40 jumpropes during the AMRAP. Double-unders are worth 20 points and single-unders are worth 10 points. Each set of deadlifts is worth 20 points, so a total round (with double-unders) is worth 100 points. Athletes can not mix single-unders and double-unders to complete their 40 reps. It is either all singles that count or all doubles that count.
Start with a men’s bar loaded to 95# and a women’s bar loaded to 65#. 2 men will begin at the deadlift and 2 women will begin at the jump ropes. 3...2..1… Go!

On Saturday, Sept 20th, both CrossFit Webster and Flower City CrossFit will be hosting a Hero WOD and Fundraiser in honor of RPD Officer Daryl Pierson. One of our CrossFit Webster members is a relative of his, so this hit very close to home for us.
We welcome the solidarity of other CrossFit boxes joining us with this WOD. The important thing is that everyone does something (and donates to the family through the official fund). Please feel free to join us in doing this WOD or change it for your community. We had some of our members do a dry run on Sunday, and the WOD should take most people in the 35-40 minute range with better athletes finishing in under 30.
The WOD (workout of the day):
8 rounds (8 years of service with RPD)
9 pull ups (September)
3 Deadlifts (315/225) (3rd)
14 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24"/20") (2014)
Flower City CrossFit: 7 am, 7:45 am, 8:30 am, 9:15 am
CrossFit Webster: 7 am, 9 am
We are asking all participants to donate $20 to the memorial fund that benefits his family (and bring your receipt to the WOD) or just bring $20 and we will make the donation on behalf of the gym community.
