With Cindy and Karen in the rear view mirror, the next challenge in the box will be Helen. This will be a bit different!
This challenge is open to anybody. Saturday May 8th from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM will be the initial workout to gauge the Helen Baseline. This challenge will be different in that it will set the Box Record and will initiate the Benchmark Leader Board. The BLB will track the box records for many of the CF Benchmarks at the RX weights.
400 m Run
21 KB Swings
12 Pull Ups
There will be a $25 entry fee, with the entry fee you will get a “I <3 Helen” T shirt.
The top RX Male and top RX Female will get prizes and the honor of putting their name on the board. Coaches and Elite CFWH Athletes can participate.
All RX entrants will do both the intial and final wods with a judge there to keep count and enforce the standards of the movements. Only RX entrants can get their name on the BLB. Also we will have people posted at the corners to make sure no corners are cut.
KB Weight= M53; W 35
Pull Up Standards
Failure to meet these standards will result in a “No Rep”. No arguing with the judge as it will only affect your time. The judges ruling is final.
There will be two other classes as well. These classes will not have a single judge but there will be a roaming coach upholding standards.
M 40lb DB; W: 25lb DB
Kipping Pull Ups or Thin Blue Band
Any weight KB
There will be a Registration Sheet at the gym to sign up beginning today!

“Coaches and Elite CFWH Athletes can participate but will not be in the running for the leader board or prizes.”
Why? I would not feel right if I was on the board and was not the true fastest time.

The Elite ahteletes have bigger fish to fry and need to be thinking about regionals. As for the coaches, it is not about the coaches.

Hm, there’s no room on the board for the scaled kids?
Count me in anyway!

I have to agree with Joel, I would be psyched to have the box’s best times up there from our elites. Less so just to have times from everyone else.

That 5 burpee penalty for dropping the kb is mean. Oh well, looks like I have some burpees in my future:) Bring it!

The burpee penalty is not for meaness, it is for safety. KB’s can roll and break shit. Plus we must demonstrate control of the weight, not the weight controlling us.

i’m in too… i just need to go first and get it over with 🙂 hopefully i won’t accidentally drop it at the top this time, hehe… thankfully my burpees have gotten better while trying to deal with the busted tail feather!

Can we use the link that Aja created on this website to pay our $25 for the tshirt (and order our size) that will count towards the Helen challenge next Saturday? It’s easier for me to pay by credit card, but if you’d rather collect cash next Saturday, I understand.

Please pay separately.
